Picture this – you have a mountain of papers that all need to be cut and you only have one pair of scissors to do it. Most of us have been in this situation and we can attest that it’s a nightmare to go through each individual page wishing we could have something that could literally cut this task in half. Well, the next time you’re in this situation, use a paper cutter to tackle it with confidence!

Paper cutters are great tools to have in classrooms, offices, and homes. Depending on your needs, paper cutters can help you trim copy or photo paper, card stock, X-ray films, or plastic sheets. Prices and models can vary quite a bit, so let’s take a look at the questions below to help you get an idea of which paper trimmer is right for you.

Do I want a guillotine trimmer or a rotary trimmer?

A guillotine cutter has a long arm attached to a sharp blade that slices through paper when pressed down. This is effective for trimming multiple pages at once. A rotary cutter has a circular blade mounted in its cutting head and trims paper in both directions by the back and forth movements of its rolling blade. This type of paper cutter cuts with higher precision and leaves the edges of your documents burr free, which is ideal for slicing single sheets of thick paper and trimming card stock.

What size paper can I cut with a paper trimmer?

Paper trimmers come in a range of sizes from as little as 6” to as large as 60”. Smaller units are portable and lightweight, while big ones can take up an entire desktop. Large units with wide cutting mats are best for slicing oversized sheets like posters.

So, the sizing of your paper cutter really depends on what you’re going to be cutting the most. If you mostly cut paper that’s between 9”-12”, but you may also need to trim larger-sized sheets, it may make more sense to grab a larger cutter to make sure that everything fits.

How many sheets of paper can be cut at one time?

When you’re shopping for a paper cutter it’s important to think about its sheet capacity, or the number of sheets it can slice through at once. Sheet capacity can vary a lot depending on the model of paper cutter, from less than 10 pages to over 100. A model that only cuts a few pages with each stroke is ideal for an office with an occasional need for the tool. Daily and heavy users need cutters with higher capacities, so think about how often you’d use a paper cutter and go from there.

What safety features do I want from my paper cutter?

Paper cutters have exposed blades, which can be dangerous if you don’t know how to handle them safely. It’s important that a paper cutter or trimmer have built-in safety features that can help reduce the chance of injury. A common safety feature is the guard rail that protects users' fingers from swinging blades. Most cutters also have blade latch hooks, or similar mechanisms, that keep their cutting arms locked in place. These prevent accidental cuts when the tools are not in use.

If you find yourself cutting a lot of documents throughout the day, a paper cutter is a must. Check out our inventory of paper cutters.
