Win a Heavy-Duty 3-Hole Punch from Carl!

Our weekly giveaway for this week is sponsored by Carl! I am super jealous of whoever wins this Heavy-Duty Three-Hole Punch from Carl. You can punch 150 sheets at one time with this thing! I’ve never used or even seen something like this in person (My experience with industrial office equipment is somewhat limited, sadly) but I can already think of how much better it would be to use this vs my current 3-hole punch that only punches 5 sheets at a time. Here are a few more details:

Makes quick work of big punching jobs. The hollow punch head technology requires less force. Oversized handle for easy drilling. Built-in paper guide offers easy paper positioning and punching. Preset to drill holes for standard three-ring binders. Large, easy-to empty waste tray. Replacement punch heads and punch disk sets sold separately. Plastic and steel. Sheet Capacity: 150

    My husband has been picked as one of the top 100 nurses in North Carolina and this would be so helpful when he makes educational aides for his patients.

  4. melissa lopez says:

    with 10 children, how would this not come in handy from school to home bookeeping. this is it! my family would fall in love with it, which would not be hard to do.

  5. cindy says:

    I recycle old jeans into new stuff like purses ……i bet I could punch through the jeans to make tidy holes to lace up pockets and such…’ve got me thinking now!!!!!!

  6. Tana Hess says:

    I am a court reporter and print and bind my transcripts. I always pay extra for the three-hole punch paper. I would love to have this heavy duty three-hole punch and be able save the expense of buying the pre-punched paper.

  7. April B. says:

    I would donate it to the unit in the hospital that I work. The one we have is always breaking.

  8. Karen says:

    I would love to use this to make handouts for my trainings into neat little books – so much more professional than paper-clipped pages! With a 150 sheet capacity it would take so little time to get things ready!

  9. mostafa E says:

    I get copying and printing jobs in ahigh volume and I’ll definitley use this monster to help me save time and provide the customer with a professional punching job. It will help my business alot

  10. Lisa S says:

    I would use this for punching holes in sheet music, or perhaps some massive financial statements and reports!

  11. Angie B. says:

    I’d use this to make notebooks for work of different physicians at different hospitals.

  12. Donna K says:

    I would love the Carl Industrial Paper Trimmer

  13. Donna K says:

    I liked you on facebook and shared a link:!/donna.kozar/posts/228179233905820

  14. Donna K says:

    It would be great for ebooks that I print out to keep a hard copy.

  15. HP says:

    I work as a Technical Writer. That makes me the focal point within our Information Technology group for just about all documents that we produce. Or, frequently researching and providing copies of online documents for our staff. Lots of writing, editing and PRINTING of documents. Some only a few pages. Some very large. Stapled, bound, or PUNCHED and put in binders. Even for an IT org we are still a long ways from a paperless environment! I really like the idea of the paper platform on the Carl Heavy-Duty 3-Hole Punch. That means not having to hold the paper in one hand while pressing down on the punch with the other. And, for big stacks you can use both hands.

  16. Mary Ann says:

    Are you kidding me. I could so use this piece of equipment. Our company prepares tax returns that are sometimes more than 150 pages. If I had Carl, he would be my new “best friend”.
    Please, can’t we start a relationship?

  17. Ron says:

    Nice punch. At our law office we have all kinds of documents on differing kinds and thickness of paper that we need to put into three ring binders. The federal bankruptcy court here in Sacramento particularly requires that all trial exhibits be put in binders–oine for the judge, one for the other side, etc.things. So this will be great for punching all those exhibits of different thickeness papers.

  18. Bob says:

    At our Mathnasium Math Learning Center, we print and punch holes in several hundred sheets each day.

  19. BT says:

    I have to file music sheets in 3 inch binders. This would work great for that job!

  20. Mark C says:

    I’d use it for punching reports for my Church and other administrative tasks. My wife could also use it for her crafts.

  21. Jeff says:

    I am just starting our family history, it will make it easy to store the info in a 3 ring binder.

  22. Beki says:

    Every night, the auditor of my hotel punches holes in 200-400 sheets of paper when auditing the days transactions. They say that is the hardest part of the job….

  23. Doug says:

    As a CPA, I provide tax return preparation services for my clients. We give them copies of their tax returns three-hold punched in folders. Some tax returns are rather thick and a heavy duty three-hole punch would be great! While our current three-hole punch is ok, we tend to go through one or two a year as they have a knack for breaking.

  24. Jan says:

    I love bargains and Shoplet is the best for finding great deals!

  25. Sharon Wilcox says:

    We would love, love, LOVE this hole punch. We have so many projects that this would be useful for in our non-profit arts organization – we have a community theatre division where we hole punch scripts for all the actors, an education division with lots of aspiriing performers and technicians that always need to punch scripts, projects etc. It would certainly come in handy! We have only one small hole punch in the office at the moment and this one would make life easier!

  26. pauline miller says:

    It would make punching holes in large lease files easier

  27. Chris says:

    This would make my job so much easier. The heavy duty hole punch I use now is so old and worn that I’m lucky if it punches more than 10 pages at a time and I have to put all my weight into it.

  28. Lauren Turk says:

    I’d go paper punching crazy with this hole puncher!!!

  29. David Yong says:

    I own a printing and binding service. We used all sorts of punches and drills to
    solve our binding problems as we used all kinds of papers and boards and if we
    had this punch it would save a lot of working and storage space.
    As good as an all-in-one can getg.

  30. Debbi says:

    OMG! My last meeting had >400 pages of pdf’s–guess what I’D use this puncher for??!!

  31. karen says:

    I would love to have the hole puncher in my classroom. It would give me time to make things more organized for my students.

  32. Heather says:

    Well it would be this puncher if we had it in our office!! :)

  33. Heather says:

    what would I do with this puncher? PUNCH PAPER! and lots of it. :)

  34. Andy says:

    Ream after ream of notes and projects, no more 10 by 10 piecemeal punching!

  35. Justin says:

    punching through mat board, to be bound with twine = the skeleton of a photobook. yeah!

  36. Bret says:

    Would definitely give it to my kids school–just noticed the other day how they are using an inferior punch for the inserts coming home in their class binders.

  37. Gaby P says:

    I own a small yarn shop and offer our customers lots of knitting patterns. In order to be able to find them quickly, we need to keep them 3-hole punched in tidy binders. This tool would be an amazing asset, as our current model (quite possibly the world’s oldest punch) only does ONE sheet at a time!

  38. Leo says:

    My wife teaches poetry workshops and it would be great to use with the student handout materials.

  39. Cathy W says:

    I really like the Carl Green Machine Heavy-Duty 36-Sheet Rotary Trimmer

  42. Cathy W says:

    I think it would be a real help when I make that family cookbook.

  43. angie says:

    There are so many wonderful items made by Carl! I think my favorite is the paper trimmer.

  44. angie says:

    I just liked shoplet on Facebook!

  45. angie says:

    Wow! I would love to have this to use for my 3-ring binders. I store all different things in binders & this would make it so much easier to get all the papers punched @ once!

  46. James Lantta says:

    I resently became disabled. I want to make binders of all my importand papers.

  47. Mel Weston says:

    Would be great for doing my Q.A. reports.

  48. Linda says:

    I would love to have this punch. We hole punch all the insurance EOB’s each month a few at a time. The heavy duty punch would be a great time saver!

  49. Rhonda says:

    Working on a Publications Committee at church, we’d use this punch A LOT!
    Especially helpful during the once a year reports from every ministry area.

  50. JohnK says:

    Pre-punched three hole paper reams are twice the price of plain paper in reams. i could punch my own from standard reams and save $3.50 each. What will they think of next?

  51. Patricia Henderson says:

    That hole punch would be great! No more trying to line up the holes and having the entire presentation be uneven! I didn’t know there WAS a manual one that would do that many sheets!

  52. Rea B. says:

    This would be great for my desk. My 3 hole puncher is from the 80’s & would be great to get one that really works.

  53. Carlos Rivera says:

    This would be great for punching worm bags!!!

  54. Sherri Richardson says:

    I work in an elementary school. This hole punch would be used multiple times each day to punch holes in worksheets, handouts, etc. for the students and teachers. This would be an excellent addition to our teacher workroom! We are a Title I school, so our funds are rather limited. This would really make the teachers’ day!

    Binding and keeping track of chapters of my dissertation.

  57. Daniel Scharfman says:

    It would be a great asset in putting together large documents, items for binders, etc., without having to do multiple punches over small quantities. this would save time and make everyone more productive.

  58. says:

    I work in a large medical clinic and this punch is exatly what I’ve been looking for! It’s perfect for Medical Records and all the paperwork that goes into charts! We’ve been using the type of punch that, maybe, punches 10-15 sheets at a time….this punch would make our work soooo much easier!

  59. says:

    I would love to have this for my daugther! We have one at work and it is fantastic! I would love nothing more, than to give this one to my daugther for her school where she is a Kinder teacher and also President of the PTA. As you know, the school’s budgets are very tight and supplies are very limited. She works so hard for her school, her kids and her community. This would help her tremendously!

  60. Darlene Propp says:

    This would be amazing to use to put my art journals together. I don’t have a lot of strength in my hands and this punch would make it sooooo much easier!

  77. Mark Vaughn says:

    This is wonderful and would be a wonderful addition to our teaching lab. I work at the largest mirgratory bird refuge in the United States and we have an awesome outdoor education program. We have schools from all over the area come to view our birds and learn about environmental education. With dwindling budgets it is difficult to get some items that the powers that be feel we can make due without to save money and to push money to larger projects, so certain office supplies get the outdated, broken down equipment. With all the pamphlets and teaching booklets that are created here, this is one item that would get used A LOT! We are still using an old 3 hole punch that we have to put about 10 sheets in at a time and when your making 40 or 50 booklets or binders it takes all day to complete an otherwise simple task. Please consider us! Thank You.

    Since I have tons of 3 ring binders for archival documentation, this would cut down on trips to Kinko’s.

  83. Erin R. says:

    If I won I would use this for work. I have lots of papers to punch and file every day. Thanks!

  84. Jeana says:

    I would use this for the mounds of paper that is waiting to be placed in organizational binders (maybe, I could see my desk again). I would also share it with my daughter to use for all the school papers that are sent home needing hole punched. So far we’ve been using a hand held punching a hole at a time. Did you know you can get blisters from single hole punches? Yes, it’s painfully true.

  85. michelle green says:

    I work in a school. We recently (finally) got new text books. Our previous books were over ten years old – which is bad for Science and Technology!!! The new text books we purchased are consumeable and set up as separate units, so each student will have 4 books each year. Each student’s book is around 125 pages. If they could hole punch them and keep them in their binder we may have a lot fewer lost books! I have about 125 students on my team alone. There are about 700 students in the building. This would help out immensely!

  86. KatyJean says:

    I keep binders for just about everything: bank accounts, paystubs, DIY planner of my own, and one for each of my two kids to keep everything from drawn pictures to grade cards and legal paperwork in. I have been using a cruddy, cheap punch that does 3 or 4 sheets at a time. It’s okay, but I’d love this one :)

  87. Char-D says:

    What a fantastic win. I would use this to punch my album pages for my one of a kind albums.

  88. jennifer townsend says:

    Wow. I have about five notebooks full of stories and poems and character sketches I’ve done over the years. I’m currently in the process of taking my hand-written notes and cleaning them up and typing them out. Needless to say I’ll be needing to punch lots of holes. This would be a god-send. Plus, I absolutely love hole-punchers. Does that make me weird?

  89. Dale Anne Potter says:

    I LOVE making mini albums and mini books, so this would be AWESOME to have in my studio! THANKS for this opportunity!

  90. Latonya R says:

    Great for all the tasks I do around my work!

    I’d totally bring that to the office for making binders… no more 30 sheets at a time.

  94. Sue says:

    I need this for my genealogy records!

  95. Maureen G says:

    I am a compulsive recipe lover. I copy from the web, cut out from magazines and newspapers and from friends’ emails. Then I place in 3-ring binders. This punch would be heaven-sent
    to make this hobby a little easier.

  96. Briena K says:

    Wow! This is sooo cool! This would be a great thing to have! I work in a school, and our copy machine’s hole punching feature is currently not working :( I would make the staff’s day with such a puncher!
