    Ladies, I need a large paper cutter for my 12X12 paper. Need suggestions for the one to get. I have a Fiskars for the small jobs and it works OK, but I understand the large one doesn't always cut straight. Someone gave me an off brand one that I don't like at all. So before I buy, I need to know the best for the money.

    I have used the Fiskars office paper cutter (slicer) for a long time. That is the table-top style like the Quillotine ones. I love it and it cuts very accurately. It cuts easily all those pieces of chipboard and really large pieces of paper. Otherwise, I use the PC Provo Craft cutter for taking to crops and using at my layout desk...(Hobby Lobby has it on sale for $6.99).

    I used to use the Fiskars personal cutter (the smaller 12" one) but it DID cut unevenly and I had to replece the rubber slider often for it. So, for this model, I would not recommend.

    I also have a large guillotine trimmer that I love... the Tonic full base one. It is lightweight, but sturdy and makes straight and even super thin cuts. They also make one that is only a 6 in base with a pull out arm, and a mini trimmer for photos.
    There are others who really like their rotary cutters i.e. Carl or the new MM one.

    I saw them in an ACMoore circular too, but haven't looked in the store yet. I want to get some of the new shaped blades for it. I think they have a scallop and some others. The trimmer comes with straight, perf, and wavy and now theres a bunch more. The new trimmer is the Ulitimate Trimmer that comes with all the blades, but no guiloteen side, only the rotary. That ones looks great, too.

    I have a fiskars that is made for scrapping. The gray one with orange. It cuts straight for me. The trick is to push the blade straight down and not at an angle. And also to hold the ruler part where the blade slides firmly.

    The guilitine one would be too big to take to crops, so the other one would be better. The large one I have has 5 cutter blades with it , but the cutting pad is too narrow and is not attached, so I don't get a good straight cut with it. I have the fiskars, I think it is a 10 inch that I have been using for about 8 years, but the replacement blades don't fit it. I think they make things so you have to replace the item, not the cutter.
