I have a small one.. it's orange and shaped like an X? I think it started around $10-15, but I used a 40% off coupon from Michaels. Cheesy They're really cool, though!

I have the Xyron 510 and I love it!!!!  I do alot of scrapbooking and it is really nice for detailed die cuts and other things that are hard to glue.  The refills are expensive... $21.00 for an 18' roll, so you can't really use it for everything.  The package says you can use it for fabric too, but I've not found that to be true.  It's mostly good for paper stuff....

hey, why don't you put a picture here, some photos of your stickers that you have created with xyron. I want to know if it's able to make a sticker that has shiny, transparent, kinda puffy thing on it's front side, then the adhesive at the back part.

I have a Xyron machine, not sure what model. I bought it at a Joann's that was closing and selling off all the inventory (moving to a new location - thank goodness). I think it was something like $9. It's not shaped like an X and it came with about 5 different kinds of adhesive tape, measuring/cutting supplies and some nifty art gum erasers.

The erasers are about the only thing I use from the kit. I'm not into scrapbooking or papercrafts, so I'm at a loss as to what to do with the darn thing. It's been sitting in a bag in the trunk of my car for about a year and a half (that's where all the unloved craft supplies go to die). So sad. Maybe I'll post it for a trade or something.

I'm glad everyone likes and uses theirs. This thread is making me rethink my opinion of Xyrons in general.

If I was ever stranded on a deserted tropical island, within a month I'd have built my own Craft Store and have trained monkeys to work the registers.

I heart personal swaps.

Hey, I just inherited a Xyron "Magic Sticker Maker", and I'm wondering if anyone knows for sure if the Xyron 250 refills will fit in it.  The max width you can feed through the Magic Sticker Maker is about 2 1/2 inches, so I'm thinking maybe?

No the Xyrons can't make stickers that are puffy (or flocked, or 3D). They make stickers by basically putting a layer of glue on the back of whatever you put through it. I think they only take things that are 1/16th of an inch thick, so you couldn't have something puffy and put that through.

I have the large one.  We put pictures thru it with magent on the back and laminate on the front  It's so much better for displaying pictures on the fridge than just taping them up. 

I also put craft foam thru to make it self adhesive by using the cartridge that is just sticker (no laminate) Then I use my Sizzix machine to cut out what ever shapes I need.  I do crafts in elementry school classes and if I use this process ahead of time it makes the projects much easier for the kids. 

I used that process to make this Easter pot decoration.  Since we used two identical craft foam shapes put together back to back I only needed to put the sticker on one from each set.  Let me know if you want directions.

I love the machine.
