...or not? I've been on the fence about getting this punch for a while and am placing an order. I've never been good at creating banners "by hand" or "free-style. They always seem somewhat 'off' to me and not as sharp as the punch would be.
I do have it. I don't know that I would buy it again. I'm not using it as much as I thought I would. Mostly because of my punch storage situation. It takes me forever to find a punch,so I usually just hand cut the "fish-tail".
I need a robot to bring my supplies to me instead me having to hunt them down.
I have it and love it. I've only had a short time and already reaching for it often. I'm not good at cutting the banner ends myself either. I have used the corner of a square punch, but not always successful with that method.
FYI - On the Triple Banner punch, there are grooves on the bottom where the paper slides in. If you cut the paper one of the sizes that fit in a set of grooves, there is no problem getting it to punch evenly. If your paper strip is larger or smaller, then you have to position it yourself. I have learned the sizing and make sure my strip is one of those sizes. Although I have also lined it up myself with success.

No, I decided no right away. It's not like it punches a whole banner out. You still have to cut the paper the correct size. (I'm obvisiously lazy! Ha Ha!) Then I would have gotten it. That would probably be impossible for a triple punch. But one big banner punch I'd buy!
I figure since I have to cut the paper why bother with another tool. Just snip the V. I don't like tons of steps! That's why I still like wood mount even though I buy clear mount for the price point.
I find it fairly easy to cut the V. But I'm not saying mine are perfect!!! I've also been over banners for awhile. I really do adore the whimsical-ness of banners but I just see them so often I'm weary of them.
I have used this punch at SU classes and it's very nice to use. If you use banners a lot on your cards I'd say buy it!
All I want is the chance to prove money won't make me happy!

So I'm a Demo, have been since January. I did not think I would want the triple banner punch but in November I did a class and we used it and then I 'got it'. So I ordered with my starter kit and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I've used it with almost all of my classes and my last class a lady said 'I didn't think I would need this and thought it was a waste but now that I've used it I'm going to order it because it's much easier/faster." I told her I had the same feelings about the triple banner too.
Get with your SU! demo and try it out. I demo it whenever I can because I was on the 'I don't need this' wagon.
