Has anyone use the PL Punch (3x4 with rounded corners) from WRMK to punch out parts of photos? Does it leave nice, clean edges?

I bought one yesterday at A's but am having a hard time using it. My husband was able to punch with it... am I just not applying enough pressure? How can it get to work easier??

I want to use it on pictures ( my "eyeballing" method of trimming a 4x6 into a 3x4 leaves a little to be desired). Now I am having second thoughts since it may be more trouble than having "off center" pics trimmed with my paper trimmer.

Second issue-- the closest A's is 1.5 hours away and I won't be able to return to the STL area for at least a month.

Have other Peas had this problem??

I bought the SQUARE one and I really like it. But you have to use it on a sturdy table top and use both hands to push pressure down on both sides. Its not something you could use in the car or something on the go.

I really like mine.

I have one and I really like it. I stand above mine and use both hands. Works great, just needs a good amount of pressure

you do need to have it on a sturdy flat surface, stand up, and use one palm on each side of the punch with even pressure. Then it works great. i love mine!

I have found putting it on the ground (carpet) and pushing hard works best for me. Since it's so big, I am worried about breaking tables. LOL

I got the PL corner rounder. I just cut my paper the size I want it and round off the corners. I do the same for any pictures I want to crop and use in the smaller sized pockets.
