Default Carl Cutter Questions

Hi,

I have heard so much about the carl cutter, but I wonder what is so good about it?

How much do they cost?

What do they look like?

There is one on sale near me, but it looks like my fiskars.

Go to Everafterarts.com If you are a demo, they will give you 1/2 off everything they sell.

The rotary cutters can cut several pieces of cs at once. They cut straight and if you are like me and decorative scissor incompetent, you can get deco blades for the cutters.

I don't have one yet but you can bet it is on my list of things to buy as soon as I have a little extra money. Everyone I have spoken to is really happy with theirs as opposed to the Fiskers.

I bought a Carl Cutter (the 17 inch professional version) after hearing Beate rave about hers on this web site. Boy, she wasn't kidding- it is SO GREAT!

I thought I would just use it for my matboard journals, squash books, and accordian cards-- but holy cow! I whipped up 40 We're Moving announcements for my sister in half the time it would have taken me to cut the same amount of paper with my Fiskars cutter. Plus, my Fiskars tends to wear out easily- and the Carl Cutter has been sharp for a long time now...

The coolest part is that it came with a scoring attachment - and you can buy a perforated attachment that looks oh- so-cool with the faux postage technique.

My advise- buy it! It's a really wise investment...

Hope this helps,
Kelly

Which model are we talking about? Must be the DC one?? It's the only one that talks of "multiple sheets" of cs being cut at once...

Yes, it must be the DC model, I didn't notice, but it didn't mention cutting through multiple layers.

I think I'll try to find one!

Thanks for all your help!!
