Tamerica TM-20 (5 in 1) Paper Trimmer Review

Tamerica TM-20 5 in 1 Scrapbooking Paper Cutter & TrimmerAre you looking for the perfect scrapbook cutter, but don’t have a huge budget to spend? There are a lot of inexpensive paper trimmers out there, but one model that has increasingly grown in popularity is the Tamerica TM-20 (5 in 1) paper trimmer (found here). I’ll explain why in this review.

Tamerica has been manufacturing affordable paper cutters, binding machines and laminators for years. Tamerica is known for making affordable mid-range products that are typically ideal for low to medium-volume use.

The Tamerica TM-20 is a scrapbooking paper cutter for many reasons. To begin with, it has a 12.6″ cutting length. This is idea for cutting photographs, decorative card stock, printed material and much more. It has a 5 sheet cutting capacity with a straight blade.

Not only does the TM-20 come with a straight blade, but it also includes a variety of patterned blades. This includes a perforated blade, a wave blade and a scoring wheel. It even has a built-in corner rounder blade. Swapping the cutting heads / wheels is quick and easy, taking just seconds.

The cutting head slides along a rectangular-shaped bar. This helps keep the head steady, which subsequently improves accuracy. The style of the TM-20 is very modern and fits right in with existing office equipment and supplies.

The base of the Tamerica TM-20 is screen printed with a variety of guides designed to help with common cuts and measurements. The guide is white, screen-printed on the black base. The TM-20 weighs in at 20 pounds shipped, which means it is hefty enough to be durable yet light enough to be easily moved around.

While the TM-20 is by no means a heavy-duty paper cutter, it is excellent for use in the home and for occasional cutting jobs in the office.

I would personally feel comfortable giving this cutter to my wife for all her scrapbooking operations. Considering it comes with a variety of patterned interchangeable wheels, it really is a great value for the price.
