      Comments about CARL Rotary Paper Trimmer:

      So far I have been very pleased with my purchase. I have found the trimmer to have a very clean cut. It took me a couple times to get used to the rotary style but I have had no complaints. I have not decided if I will purchase the different cutting edges available but I am glad I have that option.

      Comments about CARL Rotary Paper Trimmer:

      Seems like a well-built product. Curtting with the roller knife takes a little practice, but the cutter works well with 1-5 sheets of 20# paper, or a sheet of photo paper. This is not an office-ready product but is well suited for home use on 8-1/2 X 11 paper. Be sure you have 12" X 16" desk space available for storage as it's not designed to hang up.

          Works better than the swing arm kind. The paper is less likely to move out of place with this style if you cut slowly or carefully.

            Works very well for cutting 5+ sheets at a time. The quality of the item isn't great but yet it's something that'll last for a while. So far no complaints.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Fast shipping and all was in working condition. I would order from this site again.

            Better Than a Guillotine Cutter

                Comments about CARL Rotary Paper Trimmer:

                Prior to this purchase, I always used a guillotine paper cutter. This unit seems to give me better control and better results. I really like the fact that the unit has storage for extra cutting wheels and extra cutting matts, so you will not be in the middle of a project and suddenly need to change something out and can't find it.

                Comments about CARL Rotary Paper Trimmer:

                I am a card maker and require a cutter that I can depend on to make precise cuts and have puchased a few cutters before I heard about this one. I would seriously give this cutter five stars if I knew that the reason the blade housing gets stuck midway through a cut was a manufacture flaw and I just need to exchange my cutter. If not for that slowing me down during my cuts, I love it and would prefer it over any other. [...]

                  In my business of making title strips, these cutters are a must. I cut and perforate 67# cover stock and the RT200 does it all. I could not be without at lease two.

                      I cut Cardstock with my paper cutter. I cut about 5-6 sheets of 80# cardstock at a time. You can find the decorative blades, regular blades and MATS here at discount office items. Search CARL and all of those should come up. All the mats are the same you just order by LENGTH...I have a 12 inch cutter so I order 12 inch mats. It is most likely NOT the blade that needs changing. Change the mat first. Carl blades are guanenteed for like 10,000 cuts. I LOVE all THREE of my CARL cutters.
