Hi friends! I need to invest in a guillotine paper trimmer.. I am a card maker and need to be able to cut several sheets of cardstock at a time, but also need a more detailed ruler (with 1/8 inch marks) for precise cuts.. Any suggestions? Any trimmers to stay away from? Thanks for your help fellow scrappers!!

Oh I would love to give you my opinion on paper trimmers but I am far to lazy to go look up which trimmers 2Ps carry/have in stock, and I would hate to violate the TOU...good luck tho!

ETA: Removed the name of the trimmer that I have used for years because I checked and Two Peas does not carry it and I don't want to be thrown off of the board. Sorry. I wish I could help.

SueSume beat me to it.

Mine are both so old that they are no longer sold. Sorry I can't help.

I hope you find one that you love.

I have had the 6 inch and 12 inch guillotine cutters by Tonic for a few years now. Love them both and I'm a card maker too. I would recommend them but 2Peas doesn't carry Tonic...

I love my tonic, one of the best tool purchases ever. My space is limited, so I have the 6 inch base. (2Peas used to carry Tonic, but not anymore.)

Tonic, all the way. I cannot tell you where to get it (per the TOU), but there are some great prices out there now too. I've had my Tonic 6x12 and 6x6 for 7 years now. Never had a problem, never had to replace the blades, and they still cut perfectly straight. HTH!
