Yes, the shapes are downloaded and stored on your computer. In case you change computers or your shape files get deleted, your purchased shapes will be available through your eshape Store account and software serial number so that they can be easily downloaded again.
First, add your desired shapes and shape sets to your shopping cart. (Access your shopping cart in the top right corner of your screen. If you haven’t signed in already, then you will be taken to the Sign In page.) Once in your shopping cart, you can add a coupon code if you have one, continue shopping or proceed to checkout where you can place your order and download your brand new shapes.
We recommended you purchase your shapes through the software because the shapes will automatically download to your Design Downloads folder after you click on the “Download Order” button. However, if you do access the eshape Store via your web browser to download shapes, a file (.scalorder) with your order information will be downloaded. This file can be easily moved by dragging and placing it on the virtual mat in the software. Once placed on the mat, the order will automatically download your shapes from the Store and file them in your Design Downloads folder. You may also choose the “Sync” option in the drop down menu from the Library window on the software. This will automatically download any shapes that you have purchased on the eshape Store that can’t be found on your computer already.
To protect the artwork of our licensed designers and Sizzix designers, any purchased design cannot be shared. The files are proprietary for use with the Sure Cuts A Lot and eCAL software and cannot be used with any other software.
You are always welcome to contact Sizzix and apply to be a designer on our eshape Store. If you are interested in applying to be an eshape Store designer, then please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
The eshape Store sells shapes/designs and fonts that can be cut out with your electronic shape cutting machine using Sure Cuts A Lot or eCAL software. These shapes are downloaded to your computer and are also available through your eshape Store account and software serial number just in case files are deleted on your computer.
Each page of the checkout process has an option to enter a coupon code. Simply enter the code into the box and hit apply. Please note that the codes are case sensitive, meaning that you will have to type in the coupon code exactly as given.
Only certain states are required to pay sales tax on digital downloads. Currently, we charge sales tax to the following states: Colorado, Indiana, Texas, Utah and Washington. We also charge sales tax to Canada.
First, locate the shape that you recently downloaded in the “Design Downloads” folder. Shapes are organized by their set name within that folder. Once you find the shape, click on it once to add it to your mat. (Note that each time the shape is clicked on another copy will be added to the mat.)
Also, we recommend that you have your Layers window open so that you can turn on/off layers within the shape. Depending on the shape, you will have an Original layer, Pieces layer and/or an Embellishments layer. To cut out the shape, make sure that the Pieces and Embellishments are turned off. You can turn a layer on and off by clicking on the eye icon for that specific layer. Layers are also labeled to easily find the different lines and shapes within the design. This makes it simpler to change the cut style of the line to pen draw, score or cut and also make any adjustments with the layer’s appearance.
A shape may have several different layers. Most of the shapes will have an Original layer, Pieces layer, and/or Embellishments layer. The Original layer is the full original design. The Pieces layer is a layer of selected pieces from the design. This layer helps cut individual pieces from the original design instead of cutting out the entire original design for just one piece. Please note that this layer must be turned off when you want the original design to cut out, or else it will cut out the pieces on the original. The Embellishments layer is for adding details to the original design. This layer must also be turned off when you want to cut out the original design. Whenever you add a shape to the mat, your selection defaults to having just the Original layer turned on and the Pieces and the Embellishments layer turned off.
Green lines are score lines. If you have an eclips machine, then the machine will automatically score the green lines. If you using Sure Cuts A Lot software, then you will need to change the line style to perf.
Please take a moment to check the Junk Folder in your email account. Sometimes email providers will automatically place the confirmation email in your Spam/Junk folder. If it hasn’t shown up in your email inbox or Junk Folder within 10 minutes, then request another confirmation email to be sent. Also, please make sure that you have entered the correct email address.
Projects are a collection of shapes from the eshape Store and the software to make a scrapbook page, gift box, album, card, etc. As an eshape Store user, you can create and save your projects in the software. You can also submit your projects to be featured on the eshape Store for other users to download for free and recreate for themselves. If the customer hasn’t purchased one of the shapes in the project, they will be prompted to buy the missing designs in order to complete the project.
In the File menu, there is an option to “Share Online.” Once selected, you can find your saved project, add a title, category, keywords, description, and select an image to show the project, as well as attach instructions with the project. Once submitted, Sizzix will review and approve the project. It will then be available for download from the Store.
Yes, you can create a wishlist of all the designs you would like to buy. There is a drop-down menu right next to the price of the set or shape. Click on that drop-down arrow and select “Add to wishlist.”
You can send your friend a link via email to any design, set, font and project on the Sizzix eshape Store by clicking on the drop-down menu right next to the price of the shape. Click on that drop-down arrow and select “Tell a friend.”
