Default PTI

Just wanted to say, PTI doesn't sell embossing folders, they sell Impression Plates - they are double sided pieces of steel, and require the use of their Embossing Pad kit (or perhaps you can come up with a sandwich using the Spellbinders Tan Mat, but I find it is too thick for my CuttleBug). Most of the Impression Plates work quite well, and as the name implies, they actually impress the design into the cardstock, versus creating a raised design as the Embossing Folders do. There are, however, some plates to watch out for - for example, the Sunrise Impression Plate & the Guidelines Impression Plate; the designs on both sides are fairly 'open' designs, and because of that the backing design seems to wind up showing through on the opposite side of the plate. I've had to return my Guidelines plate, as both designs were impressing at the same time, however PTI immediately shipped me a new one and were great about it. (Of course, that was also within the US.)
