I bought the Lifestyles Letterpress yesterday and I am so disappointed. The printing plates are cracking after one use. I am using it in an Epic 6. The plates and Letterpress came in a set. I'm really not sure what to do. I don't know if it is just the set that came with the machine that is faulty or they all are faulty. I bought a few more extra designs but I am afraid to use them as then I will not be able to return them. You can easily clean everything up with a little bit of vegetable oil on a paper towel. Then wash off.
