Meet the Gemini Pro – Our Not So Little Secret!

Crafter's Companion – 19/02/21

We’ve tried to keep this exciting news under wraps but it’s just too much of a big deal to hide away any longer – so say hello to the latest addition to the Gemini family! 

The Gemini Pro may be the youngest of the group, but it is by far the biggest!  With a whopping 12” x 12” cutting platform this exciting innovation means you can supersize your die-cutting and embossing potential. 

If you can’t tell, we’re just a tiny bit excited about this new machine so we’ve put together this guide with everything you need to know about the Pro!

What’s different about the Gemini Pro?

Well we guarantee, the first thing you’ll notice about the Gemini Pro is the size – it’s a whopper! In fact, it can cut and emboss materials sized up to 12” x 18” using additional plates!

This larger size means you can think big with all of your projects – from card and box making to soft craft creations! 

We love writing a list (who doesn’t?) so here’s a quick run down of the Pro’s top features:

  • It’s a real time saver as you can cut so much more in just one pass – in fact for smaller projects you can cut all of your elements, mats and layers in one go
  • It’s engineered for edge-to-edge cutting, with a maximum cutting area of 12″ x 18″
  • Cuts through so many different materials – including card, craft metal, leather, and more! 
  • The Pro will cut through multiple layers of fabric so you can speed up your soft craft cutting
  • All of the power, pressure and performance you’ve come to expect from Gemini

What can I use the Gemini Pro for? 

You can use the Gemini Pro for all of your usual die cutting and embossing needs. It’s perfect for projects of all sizes, whether it’s cardmaking, scrapbooking, soft crafts or more! The larger cutting platform just means you’ll save a whole heap of time. 

The Pro is also perfect for batch making- if you’re looking to create a stack of the same card design, or a whole wedding’s worth of favour boxes this is the machine for you! This is because you can cut all of the mats and layers needed for your card or project in a single pass. 

We said earlier that the Gemini Pro would allow you to think big, and we weren’t kidding! The larger platform means you can work with a cutting area sized up to 12” x 18” – this will allow you to use larger dies and stencils and craft colossal creations!

What does the Gemini Pro cut through?

This machine is a powerhouse! It will cut through the following:

  • Card
  • Felt
  • Craft metal
  • Leather
  • Chipboard
  • Mount Board
  • Adhesive foam

You will receive 12” x 12” cutting plates and shims with your Pro – specially sized to ensure you can make the most of your new machine. 

If you want to maximise the Pro’s potential, 12” x 18”clear cutting plates, shims and a rubber embossing mat are all available separately.
