The ONLY ones I've had trouble with are the Fiskars ones. I've broken a couple of those. If you keep your receipt they will replace it; however, I didn't have my receipt. Funny thing is I broke a punch, replaced it, then it also broke. I replaced it with 2 more of same one, since it was among my favorites and I wanted to know I had a spare! Probably just a defect in that one style. Anyway, Stampin' Up has great punches as well. I like the ones that have fold-up edges as they don't take so much space to store.
