I have a variety of circle punches but the "Whale of a Punch" can reach better to cut in just the right place. Some punches can only punch along the edge of the paper. This one has a much longer reach.
The punch has alignment marks and is open on the bottom so
I can see exactly where to place it. I can punch out a picture accurately and do not have to worry about missing the paper when I cut.
I also like the fact that the Whale of a Punch comes in "nesting" sizes so I can make concentric circles for creating flowers or little round frames.
I got this to use with the large Avery metal circle tags (I think they're labeled as 1 9/16ths size). This punch is perfect for this use and like every other Paper Shaper punch I've owned, it cuts cleanly and easily.
