Best Scrapbooking Paper Cutters for ChristmasIf you are a scrapbooker, are married to one or have a close friend that loves scrapbooking, you probably know that a paper cutter is their closest friend. These paper cutters are used for trimming down paper, cutting cardstock or re-sizing photographs. Many even include special perforating, scoring or patterned blades. At ABC Office, we offer some excellent cutters that are a hit with our scrapbooking customers.

A diehard scrapbooker will probably use their paper cutter at least a couple of times a week. Because repetitive use is a must, and the fact that the paper cutter will be used often, it is important to get a cutter that can hold up for a long time. We have found that three brands in particular seem to have a great reputation. These brands include Carl, Dahle and Rotatrim.

While there are several styles of paper cutters out there, the rotary style seems to be the best all-round cutter for precision trimming of paper and photos. These types of cutters have a round blade that sits inside a housing that slides along a rail. As the blade moves along the rail, it spins (like a pizza cutter). This design makes paper cutting extremely easy.
