I’m searching around for a reasonably priced, but fairly high quality paper trimmer for our DIY wedding invitations and other projects. We’re planning on printing the invites on 8×11 sheets of paper, and then cutting them down to size. Does anyone have any good recommendations? What brand should we buy?

Don’t buy a Fiskar’s portable rotary trimmer 🙂
It was really difficult to line up my pieces with that trimmer. If I did it again I think I’d choose a guillotine style.

I bought a paper trimmer a couple weeks ago for our invitations. I got Making Memories precision paper trimmer with self-sharpening blade, bought it at AC Moore with a 40% coupon for $30. It’s good, so far.

I went with the guillotine style and the $50 for this has more than paid for itself (invites, placecards, reply cards, signs for around the reception area, etc.) http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/item/12-Guillotine-Trimmer-Wide-Base/2903.013/489967.html
And, all you have to do to sharpen the blade is cut tinfoil!

The most accurate method is to use an exacto knife with a straight edge and a cutting mat.

I have a Swingline 12″ dial-a-blade rotary cutter and can’t get straight cuts for the life of me.
