      Comments about CARL Heavy-Duty 12"" Paper Cutter:

      Love using my Carl cutter to prep for my card classes! Saves a lot of time when I can put 12 sheets of card stock in at a time and just swipe the blade back and forth a few times. Just line up, lock in place, add the magnetic bar and off you go! (Be sure to remove sliced paper so you don't accidentally cut it when you slide the blade back and forth.) Wish I would have bought this years ago!

      Comments about CARL Heavy-Duty 12"" Paper Cutter:

      I am a Stampin Up Demonstrator and I was looking for a great cutter to cut multiple sheets of cardstock at one time for my workshops. Found this cutter and several of my fellow demos and I went in together and bought it and we all love it. Great price when buying multiples of 3. If I could change one thing it would be that the magnetic part for keeping paper straight would not move on the right end. It works but you have to be very careful that right end is even with the ruler and size you are trying to cut. Overall we love the 6 cutters we purchased.

        Comments about CARL Heavy-Duty 12"" Paper Cutter:

        I love being able to cut multiple layers of paper and cutting mat board with the trimmer. i love the lock down feature. I had used a friends Carl trimmer and knew I had to have one. I wish I had purchased one without the yellow guard, however, as it limits that one last little cut that I like to get from my paper. I also love the magnetic square up to make multiple cuts quickly.

          What a time saver!! I mostly use this to make hand-made cards and can cut out everything at once! The only con is that the bar used to align the paper at the proper cutting length can move at the top end. Still worth every penny!

                Sometimes bends photo's on the edges when mat MAYBE needs changing. Not sure what is going on actually when this happens. But primary use is cutting photos and custom sized photographs out of regular sized photo sheets. This is tough heavy weight paper. This heavy duty trimmer is wonderful for this work. My husband comes in and uses it all the time for a variety of his work. We make custom gifts and presents for others too and it just works great. Not for travel I have a cheap Friskars for that. Mats could last longer I think.

                      A:

                      The Carl Heavy Duty Trimmer will perforate multiple sheets of cardstock, but the thickness of the paper will mean it will not reach the 36 sheet maximum.
