This is such a good papertrimmer I wouldn't change it for anything! I thought my old one was... well... OK. It did it's job, but it was kinda hard to cut and you really had to push down the blade for it to cut properly. This one is SO easy to use. Just slide in the paper under the little plastic strip and cut!
Also, I love the grid on the cuttingboard. You can fit a full 12x12-paper and cut all sorts of sizes with help from the grid. Makes perfect cuts every time with almost no effort needed at all. :) If you're gonna get a new papertrimmer, this one is worth every penny! (And I paid the regular price plus shipping to Sweden plus Swedish taxes which are 25% of the amount, and I still think it's worth every penny!)
I used it today and have to go buy one soon!! I tried this one out and love it. I like the gridlines..so if you want to cut a certain size like..4x6 you can just use the gridelines and cut the perfect size.
it takes a little getting used to..considering it is a little large..and the blade takes a little but of effort to push..but once you use it awhile you get used to it in my opninion. Even though it is larger in size, it is really lightweight and folds in half to take to crops!
I just love this trimmer...I had a big old Guilotine before which was bulky and not to mention not so safe for little fingers! I love this trimmer because it is sturdy and very handy. I love the fact that I can place the metal ruler in the handy storage area when I fold it up. It is so easy to use...you dont even have to hold the paper in place with the handy plastic paper holder which automatically holds the paper in place when you use the trimmer.
I have owned several other paper trimmers and tried others. This one is the easiest to use. It gives you cutting guides for different sizes of paper and photos so you get just the cut you want and straight cuts. The ruler can be used to help you hold the paper on the trimmer or you can use it alone. It folds so that you can store away when you are not using it. I would say that for the money, it is well worth it. You will not want another trimmer!!
