What Is Included In This Range of Paper Trimmers?

Most people use scissors to cut paper, but this can result in a cut that is not quite straight. In contrast, a paper trimmer will allow you to cut several pieces of paper at once, providing a straight clean edge every time. The sharp blade on a paper trimmer means that it can cut through several layers at once, ensuring a straight finish or uniform shape.

Place your new paper trimmer on a level flat surface, add papers and slice away. You will be shocked at how easy it is to cut straight lines. This range also includes a selection of Paper Edgers, ideal for creating borders or more intricate designs. Just cut to create a funky zig zag pattern, scalloped edges and more. These are fabulous for scrapbooking and making cards, adding a beautiful decorative border to your creative projects. This range also includes a selection of replacement blades for paper trimmers.

Paper Trimmers FAQs

What are trimming boards used for?

Trimming boards are used to precisely trim and cut paper for a variety of projects such as scrapbooking, card making and and other papercrafts. Trimming boards are also useful for school and office use, you can cut straight, cut corners and cut multiple sheets at once.

How do I replace the blade on my paper trimmer?

Before replacing your cutting bar, always read the manufacturer's instructions that come with your individual product carefully. Ensure that you are extra careful when handling blades as they are very sharp. To remove the blade on a sliding or guillotine paper trimmer, such as the ones featured in this range, move the cutter towards the removal groove. As the slider reaches this, it should lift upwards and away. Remove the old blade by sliding it out through this groove, and ensure that it is disposed of properly. Finally, push the new blade into the removal groove and back into the channel. You should then test the new blade by pushing the slider up and down to check that everything is in place. If you are replacing your blade, it is essential that you only use the correct ones for your paper trimmer and be careful when handling sharp objects.

What are some safety tips for using trimmers?

The blades on these trimmers are sharp, and we would like to remind customers always to use these products with care. Always ensure adult supervision if children are using trimmers, and they are not suitable for children under the age of ten. Always ensure that hands, fingers and clothing are kept away from the cutter blade at all times and that the safety latch is in place when the trimmer is not in use. Do not cut hard materials, such as metal strips or glass, and do not leave unattended and store out of the reach of children.
