•	 	The	bottom	Badgemaking	die	is	secured	for	transit	by	one	transportation	screw
on	base	of	machine.	Use	allen	key	supplied	to	remove	transportation	screw
completely.	Please	retain	transportation	screw	for	use	whenever	Badgemaker	7
is	in	transit.
•	 	It	is	important	that	your	Badgemaker	is	operated	in	a	secure	position	either
through	use	of	G	clamp	or	mounted	onto	a	board	or	bolted	to	a	stable
•	 	Recommended	thickness	for	prints	when	used	with	acetate	film	is	between
80	and	115	gsm	(eg.	standard	photocopying	paper	is	80gsm).
•	 	After	loading	die,	always	ensure	that	it	is	located	directly	under	the	top	die.
•	 	Metal	rings	and	tops	as	well	as	plastic	seals	can	stick	together,	so	always	check	that	only
one	at	a	time	is	used.
•	 	Never	allow	the	machine	handle	to	spring	back.
•	 	When	cutting	out	your	prints	using	the	rotary	cutter,	ensure	that	you	cut	out	on	a	suitable	surface
such	as	Perspex,	nylon	or	polypropylene.	Any	other	surface	used	may	damage	the	blade	on	the
cutter	–	suitable	boards	are	available	from	London	Emblem.
