This punch, which is very well made by the way, produces a 2.25 inch square. It's hard to find out the size of the shape produced by a punch. I agree that it is frustrating. The only punches worth buying, in my experience, are made by EK Success and Fiskars. You get what you pay for. EK Success makes Martha Stewart Crafts' punches. I do a lot of cardmaking and will be purchasing a Big Shot die cutting machine in the next year or so.
