Default Marks left by cutting dies

1) What do you folks do with the round marks left on die-cuts by the holes in the dies that aid removal of the paper? Do you ignore them, or try and burnish them out?
2) Also, how do you stop the cuts on the cutting plates from marking the paper? I use a bit of protective plastic sheeting, but it doesn't always work, esp on foil card.

For the first question, it depends where they are and now pronounced they are. Mostly they get left alone but sometimes I’ll rub over with a Teflon bone folder to flatten them out.

For the second, I keep one “clean” plate that always goes against the surface of the paper, the other plate gets all the cut marks. Hope that makes sense.

1. run the die cut through the machine without the die
2. try a heavier cardstock on top

I die cut with a piece of grocery bag plastic to protect the top of the cardstock when I’m concerned with either of your questions. Might not be perfect but it’ helps. Also helps to release the more intricate die cuts from the die.

My process is much the same as Joann's definitely a clean plate and a cutting plate. I don't often get marks from the whole. Maybe your stack could be a little thinner?

Yeah, I don't have a clean plate, and I think that's the issue here, rather than the thickness. I'll keep going with the sturdy plastic for now. Twenty bucks for a new plate, meh I'll put up with the imperfections I think.

Isnt that for a pair of plates-if that helps. Stuff will be on sale soon with the holidays. Maybe pick them up then.

Another clean plate person here.
Maybe use a piece of scrap thin DP/65 lb paper

I would burnish them out or run the piece again alone.

Things are expensive this far below the equator, in a small country, lol! Shipping kills everything.

I had never heard of Raumati Beach...wow it looks fabulous ((jealous)) So cool to be able to talk to people from around the world!

But I see your point re: getting product.

Can you change the sandwich not to be so tight it is catching the holes? You might spray the paper with water to emboss/die cut better...or run it two times to fully cut?

Thanks for all the suggestions, ladies! I'll haul out the device next week and experiment with thicknesses and maybe even find some acrylic that isn't marked. I see I have an old Compaq network admin certificate mounted on acrylic...maybe that will do the trick. I sure don't need the certificate anymore 😁

I can only imagine the shipping costs to you. That does hurt.

The only other thing I can add also requires a purchase, but I do swear by the Magic Mat by Scrapbook dot com. All you really 'need' is 1 for the cutting edge to cut into. They make them for several machines. Honestly ... no cracking sounds again, such smooth rolling, great cuts, & just a clean plate on the top to keep the top of the die cut free of blemishes. Those dot holes? As above, sounds like a lot of pressure if you can skinny down your sandwich layers. I've been using the same Magic Mat for at least a year now, and it doesn't warp! Very nice.

Best wishes!

I never thought of using a self-healing mat as part of the sandwich. That's another idea I'll have to try. Yes, I hate the cracking sound, too!! Lol.
PS: I recently got a US$50 gift voucher from a US stamp company, and got several small lightweight dies, a sheet of bling, and a stamp set. When I went to check out, the postage was US$167!!! I used my cousin in KY as a clearing house, and she sent it on to me for US$30 😊 So I broke even. Kinda. Lol.
