Cardmate 10-Up Manual Business Card Cutter Video Demo

Cardmate 10-Up Business Card Cutter & SlitterIf you want to be able to create your own in-house business cards quickly and efficiently, I recommend you use a business card cutter (found here). These cutters are far faster than using a pair of scissors or a pair cutter and create straight and accurate lines every time. One of the most affordable ways to do this is by using the Cardmate business card cutter. We have just added a new video demo to our site (which I will include in this article) that shows exactly how it operates.

Before I continue to the video, I would like to cover exactly how the Cardmate works. To begin with, this is a 10-up business card cutter. That means that it will cut 10 total business cards from a standard 8 ½” x 11″ sheet of paper. Ten up and 12-up are the two most common cutting patterns. There are 10-up business card templates available online in the event you don’t already have one. We also offer a 10-up PDF template for the Cardmate that you can find here.

Most people simply use their own computer and laser / inkjet printer to create the business cards. Using a 10-up template, data is entered such as contact information, logo and other pertinent information. Once these have been printed out, the can be cut down on the Cardmate. Most people print their cards out on standard paper or light card stock. The Cardmate can cut cardstock, but I recommend not going too thick or using slick / glossy paper.

Using the Cardmate is extremely easy and anyone should be able to use it. It is manually operated, which means you don’t need any power source to use it. It weighs in at only 6 pounds and it sits nicely on most desk surfaces. Rather than using an electric motor, the Cardmate has a hand crank located on the side of the machine. This crank is actually turned in a clockwise motion to advance the paper through the machine.

Creating a business card on this machine takes two steps. First you load your paper vertically in the machine and turn the hand crank. Once the paper has made its way through, you can take the two cut columns (two columns of 5 cards each) and insert them horizontally into the machine. This is where the sheets are cut into individual cards. I have used this machine and it is remarkably easy to use and I personally feel that the results turned out very well.

Here is a video demo of the Cardmate business card cutter in action.
