I purchased the Marvy square punch locally last year and thought it was 2" but it was actually 2 1/8" . However I thought it could still work for most of my needs. I went to use it a couple weeks ago (after only punching one or two photos before) and not only did it not fit my needs (knowing I would waste paper otherwise I printed 4 photos in each 4x6 photo paper) it also did not punch anymore! The mechanism wasn't lining up right and the cutter kept getting stuck! I purchased this EK Success Paper Shaper here and got it within a few days (paid quick ship) and I cut out 50 photos quickly and without a hitch. Plus more ergonomic to use.
I looked all over for a 2" square punch locally & wasn't able to find one. I ordered one from Target & it wasn't 2", although it was advertised as so.
This punch works great for those projects when you need to punch around the page.
While it is a bit larger than expected, I love that i can now get consistently sized pictures every time. I hate using my cutter for such a small size and now I have the perfect tool to help me be lazy! lol
I really like the old style punches and I've been trying to complete my set of square punches before you can't find them anymore. They look great on the Bygel racks from IKEA in my scraproom.
Who doesn't love tiny pictures on their pages?!? I am a big fan of 2x2 sizes and with this punch, I no longer have to cut the photos out! This is such a time saving tool!
