For those who enjoy paper crafts such as scrap booking and card making, a paper cutter can make things much easier. These devices allow multiple pieces of paper to be cut into straight and even pieces. They are inexpensive and a convenient addition for any craft enthusiast.
There are two main designs. The best one will depend upon the intended use. The quality, size, and design will influence the price.
The most well known design is called a guillotine cutter. It has a platform with a bladed handle. The paper is measured with the grid on the platform, lined up, slid under the paper clamp, and then sliced with the handle. These are commonly used in schools. They are strong and durable, providing crisp cuts on muliple pieces of thick paper and cards. Because of their strength, durability, and size, guillotine cutters are the more expensive design. They range in price from thirty to a hundred dollars.
