Thank goodness someone finally made a punch that does what's advertised. I looked forever for a punch that made 2" squares but everyone I found called itself 2" but was actually only 2" on the diagonal. I found that to be a bit misleading. This punch works so well, just like butter. Yes, it's fairly big but for a punch this big it's extremely easy to manipulate. You can see exactly where you're punching on the paper just by turning it over. There's a little removeable window to keep your punch out safe. I can even operate it with one hand. I definately intend to go back to Marvy Uchida for other punches.
I never really got the whole punch thing before. I thought I have a trimmer, why do I need to spend extra money on a square punch. Well, let me tell you it is easy, consistent and has become essential in my layouts. I like using a grid and find myself going back to this punch over and over again. It is a great size for photos and paper- layouts and cards. Of course, once I discovered how great punches are, I had to have more and now am a bit of a punch addict. Ah well. This is the one that started it all. I like to think of it as my gateway punch.
Sometimes I feel that Marvy Uchida should pay me for being a spokesperson but I LOVE THIS PUNCH! I know, you are thinking, "but am I gonna use it that often?". Trust me, you will! Not only have I used it for multi-pic LOs but I use it for punching out pp from scraps to make a LO, or pp for card making....the possibilities are endless. Believe me, I know, just look at my gallery and you will see - I use it alot! It punches so nicely - never any jagged edges - a nice clean punch! BUY IT, YOU'LL BE THANKING ME!
I love this punch. It is the first Marvy Uchida punch I have ever purchased. I have used several different brands of punches, but this one is so easy and smooth to punch. I was very impressed. I think I will probably be purchasing more styles soon!
