ScanNCut SDX2200D Disney edition

While I was updating my blog, I noticed that I had a lot of search terms on my blog on where to buy the SDX2200D Disney ScanNCut in the UK.

It’s available here in the UK *exclusively* through Makers Superstore –

Using CM series blades in your ScanNCut SDX


Did you know you CAN use your CM series standard and deep cut blades in your SDX machine?

This information can be really useful if you’re temporarily out of autoblades for some reason – so you’ll be able to keep on cutting!

I’ve uploaded a video to show how adjust the appropriate settings in the machine:

Drawing with the ScanNCut – the Brother Small Barrel Pen Holder


SMALL BARREL PEN HOLDER (Product code CAUNIPHL2)

FITS ALL MODELS OF SCANNCUT – ALL CM SERIES MACHINES AND ALL SDX MACHINES.

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY IN THE UK FROM MAKERS SUPERSTORE:

http://www.makerssuperstore.com

The small barrel pen holder looks identical to the original universal pen holder, and works in the same way, although obviously as the name suggests, it is designed to fit those smaller barrel pens you have in your stash – such as gel ball pens etc, that have previously had to had tape wrapped around them to make them fit.

The small barrel pen holder will work with pens that are within these diameters: 7.8 mm – 9.6 mm and have a length more than 70 mm

I’ve uploaded a YouTube video showing how it works:

Create and Craft misleading customers again – SDX1200 false statements.

Important information for those who may have purchased the SDX1200 this week or are thinking of buying it from Create and Craft, Crafting etc: This week Mel Heaton has been saying that the SDX1200 is “the top, top spec” and that it is the top of the range of all ScanNCut machines.


THIS IS 100% UNTRUE.Melanie Heaton and Create and Craft 100% know this is a FALSE statement. Most users are already aware there have already been a huge number of false statements by Mel Heaton concerning the ScanNCut.


The TOP specification ScanNCut at the moment is the SDX2200D Disney edition, which is ONLY available through Makers Superstore.

The SDX2200D is absolutely the latest machine, as it was launched at the end of December last year – the SDX1200 was launched in November 2018.

I have an e-mail from Geoff Taylor, head of Brother ScanNCut UK explaining that the SDX2200D has a number of internal mechanical differences to the SDX1200 as well as new software, new, improved, mat feed roller system as well as 132 additional built-in Disney designs which the SDX1200 does not have.

The updated mat feed roller system is really IMPORTANT information as thousands of users have had issues with the mats misfeeding on the SDX1200. Brother Germany have said that the SDX1200 has a serious design flaw in the mat feed roller mechanism.

This was the e-mail from Geoff Taylor. If you want to confirm this information for yourself, please contact me and I will pass on his e-mail address to you.

“Hello Ms XXXXX
May I first take this opportunity of thanking you for purchasing the Brother SDX1200.
As with many manufacturers, Brother are constantly developing and improving the products that we make.
The SDX1200 was launched 18 months ago and the SDX2200D more recently in January 2020.
Given the above, I can confirm that as part of our natural product development cycle, there are a number of mechanical and software differences between the two models and the SDX2200D is fitted with a different roller mechanism to the SDX1200.
Kind regards
Geoff”

Important news: SDX 125 discontinued in US, CM900 discontinued in Australia.

I’ve had lots of e-mails asking me why the SDX1200 and the CM900 are being sold so cheaply at the moment as there is a 4 day deal on at Create and Craft on the SDX1200.

The SDX1200 is £499 for NON members and £449 for members. This machine was only launched FIFTEEN months ago.

If you have bought this machine, or are thinking about it, there is some important information you need to know.

First of all, this afternoon, Nigel May claimed that Create and Craft sell the entire ScanNCut range.

That’s not true – they do NOT sell the new SDX2200D – only Makers Superstore in the UK have the contract to sell this machine, which has had improvements made to it.

The SDX2200D is priced at £599 at the moment and I think it is worth if for the improved mat loading system – just google or YouTube SDX1200 mat feeding problems and you will see why the original series is being discontinued.

There is a reason why I mention the SDX2200D and that’s because I have an e-mail from Geoff Taylor, head of Brother ScanNCut UK explaining that the SDX2200D has a new, improved, mat feed roller system. For further information on this, please contact Makers Superstore who will be only too happy to help 🙂 – I have added a link to their contact us page below.

The updated mat feed roller system is really IMPORTANT information as thousands of users have had issues with the mats misfeeding on the SDX1200. Brother Germany have said that the SDX1200 has a serious design flaw in the mat feed roller mechanism.

So:

The original SDX range is already starting to be discontinued in the US, just FIFTEEN months after launch – because thousand of users have reported mat feeding problems with the SDX1200 as I said above.

The US has two of the original SDX series with the same internal hardware as our SDX1200 – the SDX125 and the SDX225.

The SDX125 has been DISCONTINUED in the US and is no longer officially for sale.

The CM900 has been DISCONTINUED in Australia and is NO LONGER FOR SALE THERE.

This was an e-mail from Geoff Taylor, head of ScanNCut UK: If you have any questions regarding this, please contact Makers Superstore direct through their contact page:

I’m subscribed to the Makers Superstore newsletter, and received this message which I wanted to pass on for others:

“Dear Makers,

I hope you’re holding up well during these unprecedented times. I thought I’d give you an update from Makers HQ. 
 
For the moment MakersSuperstore.com will remain open for business. It’s important to me that we are still able to support creativity through this time of social hardship and uncertainty.

However, to safeguard our team and to ensure we comply with the Government guidelines, the following operational changes have been put in place.

-All the Makers team now work from home.
-All internal and external meetings are now virtual.
-My ‘better half’ and I will be personally packing your orders, our office is a short walk from our home, we have no issue complying with social
distancing and all contact remaining within the family household unit. 
 
Delivery 
Our delivery partner DPD continue to pick up from our facility and as such we plan to maintain our next working day delivery. However, this may be impacted subject to localised network delays. 

Contact free delivery
DPD now operate a contact free delivery process recognising that some people may be self- isolating and unwilling or unable to open their door to receive parcels.

They have a range of delivery options for everyone:

If you don’t have the DPD app you can now leave a note on your front door telling DPD where to leave your parcel and the driver will take a photo. Please note that without the ‘leave in a safe place’ instruction, the driver will not deliver the parcel.

I’d like to thank all those that have sent us messages of support. As a relatively new business with a small dedicated team it’s great to know the people are there for you.
