Try getting a t-square or a triangle – so you can line it up with one edge and then your guide will atomatically be a 90 degree angle.

I went to kinkos and used their big paper cutter.

Make sure you’re holding the paper still all the way to the bottom. I usually lean on the paper a bit to put some weight behind my hand so that it doesn’t slip at the bottom. Good luck!

i  have a huge 16″ office size paper cutter thingy and it doesnt cut straight for the life of me!!  its just not comepletely squared, so if it put the paper right up againts the top, it always kicks the bottom in just a bit and then it cuts crooked.  im practiced on it so much that im just really good/careful about watching the bottom and adjusting it so the cut lines line up to the blade rather than the top of the cutter.
