hi girls...i would love if you could weigh in on paper trimmers. i am desperately in need of a new one and i am thinking i may go to a better trimmer than those i have been using. i have heard talk about rotatrims, cutterpillars, fiskars procision, etc. please share your thoughts and experience if you will!
I have tried quite a few trimmers. Guillotine and rotary, quite a few fiskars now I use the Stampin Up trimmer. I am really impressed with it and I hear they are coming out with an attachment that will change it to a rotary blade if you prefer that.
I am a die hard Tonic Guillotine user. I like that I don't have to buy new blades and I think it cuts sooooo straight, that's important.
I've had a Genesis trimmer for about 11 years. Still on the same blade. They are really spendy, but cut straight and mine has an edge light on it.
I only have the same old Fiskars that I've had for so many years. It's not perfect, but it works. It'll be interesting to hear what everyone says about this! Most of the time I'm not that picky, but sometimes it's frustrating when it doesn't cut 100% straight.
I've just replaced my Avery trimmer this year/ My previous Avery trimmer last 10years, so I'm hoping for the same with this one.
i've got a fiskars rotary trimmer and i love it! i used to use the fiskars triple track trimmer (several of them, actually) but because of the design they start to cut crooked after a lot of use. the rotary one has no trouble with crooked cuts and is still just as portable.
I'm looking for one too - my old Fiskars has finally driven me mad enough to spend money on a new one
I use a guillotine at home, as I feel that it gives the best cuts. It's X-acto brand and I really like it! I travel with a Fiskars rotary trimmer, and I use the Fiskars mini guillotine trimmer for desktop work.
thanks for your input! i feel like jaime...my old trimmer is driving me completely mad! and, i am a bit obsessive about straight cuts, especially when i am teaching a card class. it has to be a work horse and a straight cutter.
I recently got the Fiskars ProCision trimmer and really like it! Michaels had it and I got it when they had a 50% off coupon which made it $60. It sits next to me on my craft desk and I think it cuts great!
I've been using a cutting mat, metal-edged ruler and utility knife for 9 years now. I have a paper cutter that works well enough for me, but I never use it.
