Ok girls, I bouth this thingking that it's just another fun tool to collect, but WRONG-OHHH I was!! The punches are the right size for small pics, I have used the large punch twice and it has punched through pic's with ease! If you use some of your pics that you took from afar, their just the right size. I've even tried using mini monograms and they work great also.
Now I did see the other brand of brad maker and seen how it was made, and what it made, and I don't think the look will be as nice as these. The cost is better too!! I will upload when I'm finished with my project!! I promise you will love this as much as I do!!!

This is so reasonably priced as the punches come in the starter kit. It takes about a minute to make your brad and there is no bulky tool to store either. These brads don't stick up too high either. I keep the punches, brads and toppers in a little box in easy reach. The refill is reasonably priced too. Great Christmas gift too!
This is possibly the worst product I have bought. On my set the largest stamp was assembled backwards. Doesn't anybody look at this stuff before packaging? Unfortunately, that wasn't the worst. The killer for this product is that none of the 3 punches works well. I did finally get the things to punch through but it took alot of effort trying to get the insides to line up so they would punch. (Too much play between the two parts?) By the time I got the circles punched they were mangled beyond use. Very poor quality.
