    introducing the new minc foil applicatorby Richelle Naegle Update - the MINC system is here!! Technically we are now allowing for pre-orders, but we do have 20 MINC machines in stock (and I don't believe anybody else has machines yet). So first come, first serve. If you don't get one of the first 20 machines, we hope to be fulfilling orders in early March. Unfortunately, we have to wait until March for the foil and other accessories, but the good news is that you get a MINC foil applicator w/ starter kit, so you have a sampling of all the necessary components to make a craft with your new machine, while you await access to the new Heidi Swapp reactive foil, and accessories.
