Lake Forest, CA (PRWEB) January 09, 2014
Arts and crafts leader Sizzix® has made its sequel to its original eclips even better with the new eclips®2 DIY electronic cutter, launching at the Craft and Hobby Association 2014 Mega Trade Show in Anaheim, Calif., starting on Friday, January 10.
The newly redesigned shape-cutting machine contains enhanced motors for speed, reduced noise and efficiency, tablet compatibility with an upcoming PC app, precision cutting and more. Offered at $299.99 MSRP, the eclips2 is accompanied with free eCAL lite software to allow consumers to create beautiful customized projects from the start. In addition to eCAL lite, an eCAL 2.0 software upgrade with enhanced features and capabilities, such as Print2Cut and multiple exporting shape formats, will be available for $79.99 MSRP on Sizzix.com.
“The eclips2 keeps reliable eclips features while adding additional capabilities such as precision cutting and improved motors, making the eclips2 the electronic cutting machine of choice for consumers,” said Denzil Quick, Director of Product Development for Sizzix.
Accompanying the eclips2 release is the launch of the Sizzix eshape Store in early 2014. The all-new site will host hundreds of downloadable cutting files that import as the full shape, yet are arranged in labeled layers for multiple uses. These stylish shapes and fonts are compatible with the eclips, eclips2 and other shape-cutting machines.
Also debuting later this fall is the eclips2 with Bluetooth®, featuring contour cutting to seamlessly line up Print2Cut files for added creativity.
The eclips2 will be available in stores across the country, including local craft boutiques and major retail craft chains in February. For more information, visit Sizzix.com.
