Did you do something fun on Australia Day?At least the heat eased of a bit for todays celebrations.
Today I would like to tell you a little about the cutters we have in stock. We have 3 main ones as well as a couple of others. The 3 I’m blogging about today are the ones I would recommend.
I’ll start with the Making Memories Precision Trimmer.
The good Points:
* It’s self sharpening = never needing a replacement blade.
* It has 1/2″ grid across the whole cutter, making measuring more accurate.
* The grid also contains pre-measured sections for 4″ x 6″, 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″ and 8.5″ x 11″.
* You can cut thin slivers of paper easily.
* It’s sturdy
* Magnetic ruler for holding paper in place while cutting
The not so good Points:
* Its a bit more bulky
* If you align the paper flush against the top it won’t cut straight – you need to align with the grid lines.
* Its a bit of an investment.
make sure you shop around when purchasing a tool like this, but I think you will find we have a very competitive price of $89.97 This is our everyday price.
The next Cutter I will tell you about has to be my absolute favourite. The Kaisercraft Rotary Cutter.
I have used mine for over 2 years and have only just replaced the blade. Replacement blades cost $7.99.
There are also replaceable cutting mats which costs $4.99 per pack of 2. The average person would replace them about every 6 months.
You align the paper along to top edge to cut a perfectly straight line. Measurements are in cm and inches.
This cutter is also perfect for the left handed person.
This cutter costs $44.99.
Finally let me show you the Provocraft Paper Trimmer.
This was the first trimmer I ever used, mine was the previous edition in pink and green. Love it, very light weight and easy to take to crops. I also find this the easier trimmer if you want to take an exact square or rectangle out of the centre of the paper.
The down side, blades get blunt quite quickly. This is a great cutter for the beginners and kids.
We sell them in store for $16.99 – What a bargain!
I hope this little break down has been helpful to you. We always stock these 3, but we also have a couple of others we get in from time to time. We are able to order in practically any cutter available on the market at very competitive prices.
Only a couple of days left and the kids will be back at school. (insert happy dance) and this year is extra exciting for me as I will have 2 kids at school! Mathijs is very excited to be starting Kindy. My poor little baby will be lonely without his partner in crime…but only a year to go and he will be at school too.
