I LOVE this punch! I have been waiting a binding edge punch for years, but could never find one. I'm so happy that EK Success has come out with these punches. They are so easy to use. They punch through thicker cardstock/paper like butter. One of the best parts is that these punches lock down to store flatter than any other border punch, which makes owning more a lot easier! :)
If you have ever wanted to make a torn out of a notebook border on your scrapping layouts, this is the punch for you. You will not be disappointed!

I'm in love with the new EK Success Edger Punches, and each one is better than the next. Binding Edge is an easy way to add a casual, slightly distressed look to paper. The best thing, though is how it locks down for a lower profile when you aren't using it. The punches take up less space and there's a picture of the punch design on the handle so that you can tell at a glance which one it is.

I luv this little easy to use punch. It locks up so that it takes less space and it is so easy to line up and use. I had tried other notebook edge punches, but they were hard to line up and very hard to use. These new EK success punches are the best - I have about six now, and plan to get more!
I love this punch - so much so that I got another one for a scrapping friend. So, yes, I would recommend or even buy this product for a friend - she loves her's too! The design is great, can be used for the school years layouts to doing a neat spin on your cards too! Love it!
I love this punch. It's great for creating that torn out from a notebook look. I use to create journaling spots. The slim profile is a wonderful characteristic of these border punches. Easy to store, easy to use. I highly recommend it.

I used this at a crop in 2009 and I just knew I had to add this to my collection.
I even saw a tutorial on how to make it without a punch but nothing beats the punch.
For give me if you start seeing this on every other LO!

I love this punch. I only have one other punch that I always keep handy and bring to crops, and now I have two. It punches cleanly and nicely, and is very versatile. It makes for such a darling border.
I love the look you get with this awesome punch. It is easy to use. It collapses so it is easy to store. Highly recommend gettiing this one!

This punch cuts a very clean edge and also has a button to lock it in the down position. This is great because it takes up less room to store it. One thing to be aware of though, the edges you punch off tend to get caught inside the punch. So, it takes some patience to stop and clear that edge out each time before you can reposition it. I haven't had that problem with other punches I have. It's a cool look though--especially for school layouts! So, if you're patient, it's worth it!

While this is a terrific punch, very easy to use, and punches a smooth and clean border, I was hoping it would correspond with the hole spacing for Zutter's Bind-It-All tool/machine. I thought it would be nice to have removable/addable pages in the sketchbooks I make. This product punches three holes per inch (3:1 pitch) while Bind-It-All punches 2:1.
Hope that helps anyone who was wondering.
I was very excited when I got this border punch. Thank goodness I tried it out before using it on the project I was working on, though. It took a while for me to get the hang of aligning it correctly. After about 4 tries I got it right and my project looks great! I would definitely recommend this punch, but practice a little before you use it on something you want to keep.
I have seen the notebook/binding edging punches used here several times and finally broke down and purchased one. Although this is my first EK Success border punch (all others being Fiskars) I decided on this version because I liked the shape produced the best. I think it will work nicely for LO's with lists and as a more masculine sort of punch style. I think the negative that this punch produces is interesting also... although it only has five tabs. I am certain that something neat could be done with those. It lines up nicely and punches smoothly. I do find though that the silver on grey guides can be just a bit harder to see at times... in my poor lighting...than the white I am used to. Still, the slimline design is a very nice option that makes storage in a drawer (my choice for it) just that much easier.
I love this punch as well as all the ek success border punches! ......This punch adds a gerat look to Los and cards! ....adds a little texture and great for both feminine and masculine looks! .....punches smooth and easy! ......the fold down flat feature is the greatest invention! .....makes storage so much easier for someone like me who is obsessed with border punches! ....a must have for ant collection!!!
