Gemini die-cutting, embossing & foilpress bundle
Crafter's Companion Gemini Die Cutting and Embossing Machine
The Gemini is faster and quieter than other die cutting and embossing machines and has a sleek low-profile design. It has been designed for intricate dies as well as for cutting heavyweight cardstock, vinyl, foil and multiple layers of fabric (depending on the dies used). Using higher pressure than many other machines, the Gemini allows better cutting of elaborate designs. With a large platform size (9" x 12.5"), edge to edge cutting of A4 and US letter size materials is enabled, as well as the versatility to use multiple dies at the same time.
With the unique pause, resume and reverse feature, you can reverse out smaller dies once they are cut (for a quicker pass), as well as being able to have peace of mind if you're concerned you've put an incorrect sandwich combination through - you can simply pause it and reverse it out to check.
The Gemini is compatible with most leading thin metal dies and embossing folders.

Crafter's Companion Gemini Foilpress
This innovative hot foiling machine takes paper and mixed media crafting to an exciting new level. The Gemini FOILPRESS delivers professional-looking foiling results using a hot press technique that ensures crisp, clean images every time. Perfect for stationery, invites, party decorations, home décor, gifts, and so much more. The FOILPRESS works perfectly with a multitude of materials. The size of the Foiling Platform is 7x5”
The FOILPRESS has been designed to work exclusively with the Gemini brand die-cutting and embossing machines and it comes with a Foiling Platform that has been perfectly sized to fit in the Gemini Junior. The FOILPRESS can also be used with the original Gemini machine, but users will need to buy a ‘Top Plate Extender’ to be able to do this. The FOILPRESS is not compatible with the Gemini GO.
The Gemini FOILPRESS is extremely simple to use, and each machine comes with a comprehensive instruction manual. It is the only foiling machine to have a temperature control feature. The temperature you select is determined by the material you wish to foil. In addition to this, the FOILPRESS has an LCD timer which counts down the time in both minutes and seconds. An indicator light on the display shows red or green to indicate when the FOILPRESS is ready to use. There is a ‘Material Matrix’ within the instruction manual which outlines the timings and temperatures for all applications. The FOILPRESS heats up quickly, meaning that you can start foiling almost immediately.
Safety features are paramount with any process that involves heat, and the FOILPRESS has all areas covered. The FOILPRESS cannot overheat. It has a built in ‘Cool Down’ feature which will activate automatically if the FOILPRESS has been in use over a long period of time. It also has a built in ‘Auto-Shut Off’ feature, meaning that the machine will switch off automatically if it hasn’t been used for 25 minutes. Silicone Finger Grips, a pair of Magnetic Tweezers, and a Silicone Cooling Mat are all included with the FOILPRESS. The Silicone Finger Grips must be worn when handling the Foiling Platform and Metal Shim. The Magnetic Tweezers must be used when picking up and moving the dies once they’re hot. The Silicone Cooling Mat protects your work surface from the metal shims and Foil Stamp Dies after they’ve been used.
