I'm looking to buy a paper trimmer. I would be using it mainly for making cards of all sizes and other paper projects. There are so many options out there so I thought I'd just ask and see if there were any obvious preferences. I also would like to know if there's anything I should be aware of before buying one.

Thanks for your time!

Recently bought the Purple Cow and it is great. It is the best of both worlds!

I've used quite a few trimmers and my current favourite is the Fiskars Sure Cut because it's got a little wire running all the way down the trimmer track that shows exactly where it will cut. I also like the fact that it's got measurements at the top and bottom, and also down the side. That means I don't have to cut off more paper than I need because I can stop at a certain point, rotate the paper, and cut a piece with the exact dimensions I wanted.

Fiskars Rotary Paper Trimmer with the LED and the Portable!!

My home one has the nifty little light on it! Believe me when you are going blind, THIS HELPS!

I do the late night stuff so the nigh time lighting is not the best(my Ott-lite should be in the office I know...), and with my developing in years, it to see too! I have the traveler for crop nights!

I have the Making Memories rotary cutter and I love it. It has a self-sharpening blade, so you don't need to worry of the added expense of blades. My only complaint is that its hard to cut anything smaller than about 1.5". I've had mine for almost 2 years and the cuts are as straight and clean as the day I bought it.

another vote for the Making Memories,,,,,awesome trimmer! DO NOT cut chipboard or more than 2 pieces of CS at the same time though,,the blade can bend and there's no replacing it,,,,

I keep a cheapie trimmer around for cutting cs.
