Default Which Xyron to get?

I have finally made the decision to purchase a Xyron machine. Which machine do you gals suggest I get? I mostly make cards and dabble a little with scrapbooking. Please advise!!!! Thanks a bunch!

Well, I am by no means an expert, but I have the Xyron 510 and it is just right for my purposes.....which include card making and tiny bits of scrapbooking, so I guess it should work for you! Good luck, and use a coupon when you buy it!

I second the 510 recommendation. Although if you can you should get a 150 (affectionately know as the X), also. At one time or the other I've had/tried all of Xyron models except for the 900 and these are the two I would recommend.

i saw beates recent tutorial using a xyron, so i went the other day to michaels ... so some research ))

i think the 510 is the machine for me. good for scrapbooking and not too small that you will think in a few weeks.. i should have bought the bigger one.
also go to joanns web site. a lot of ladies gave their opinion about the different machines. maybe this helps.

iam just waiting to get a 50 off coupon in the mail to get the machine. it is $50

Default The 900 is actually cheaper to use...

Being a numbers kind of person, I recommend (and bought) the 900.

The adhesive for the 900 is actually cheaper than the adhesive for the 510.

For the 510 it is about 1.00/ft of 5" wide adhesive.

For the 900 it is about .83/ft of 9" wide adhesive.

Then when you figure that for most things I can do 2 across in the 900 it makes it about 1/2 the cost for adhesive. And even if you only have a 4" piece it is still cheaper to do it on the 900.

Plus I like that I can feed a full sheet of cardstock through. My dh was surprised I didn't get the 12" version, but the adhesive for that is too limited in where you can get it and it does cost more per ft.

Question Silly Question

What is a Xyron? I have been reading a lot about it on the boards and I understand that it turns things into stickers (?), why would I use it for card making?
Thanks!!

I just got the 510 from Joanns.com but haven't had a chance to play with it yet. Used the 50% off coupon from email. Get on their email list; you get lots of specials etc. In fact, got one this morning and they are offering $5 off purchases of $25 or more (code JULERD65) and $10 off purchases of $40 or more (code JULERD610). I also the X for stickers. Love it, Love it!! Happy shopping.

Hugs, Joanne
