  • This would be so awesome to have!

  • Fritz

    This sliding cutter makes it impossible to cut or injure oneself, even when distracted. A friend cut off the tip of one of her fingers with one of the scary old style cutters. This cutter is not only very professional, but also safe and free from user anxiety.

  • Mike

    As a new elementary teacher, this would be a terrific gift for my sister.

    I really need one!

  • Brad

  • I would love to have this! It would be so handy for cutting invitations, photos, and other things that I now cut a bit crookedly with scissors. Thank you for the chance!

  • Patty

    The paper cutter I have now you have to hold your tongue the right way and make sure you only put 3 sheets in at the time and go very slowly and pull the blade to the left at the end or it will just tear the paper all up at the bottom!

  • @babydest

    I could really use this…

  • Iria

    This one looks great. The sheet capacitiy of 30 sheets at a time sounds terrific. We have an old one with the metal blades. It needs to retire. Thanks Shoplet for the chance to win! :)

  • Lori

    Would love to have this for my group….no need for scissors!

  • Mikey

    They make a great product and I am pleased with its usefullness. However, it would be helpful if they put in a sheet of instructions in the box for those of us who are not preusers of these type of products.

  • Brunetta Lafara Lingg

    If we had a rotary cutter like this instead of the chopping block we have now, we wouldn’t have what should be neat stacks of paper but that end up being too wide or too narrow or too tall or too short to stay neatly stacked!!! And then, when it’s time to File them, grabbing the top sheet is a nightmare!!!

  • Brian Patrick

    This would be just great for my kids.Now they can have a faster&safer way of cutting things that they need for school.I as a father think this is a good thing for everyone.

  • Katherine
  • Kathleen

    I could use this. I work in a public library and make up the cash slips. They were so ugly before I started doing them on the computer. The only thing still ugly is how badly they’re cut. Wish I could win this!

    Standard cutters do not “cut it” for the large volume of 5 x 7 calendars I make and cut late each year for church staff and friends. Also make 40+ 8 x 11 inch laminated yearly calendars, all of which require two cuts after laminating.

  • Boy I sure could use this Carl Cutter and would love to win it.

  • Crystal

    where have you been all my life carl

    WoW! This would be so neat to have. I currently use a very old cutting board and have to line up the paper ‘just right’ or it comes out crooked.

  • I own a craft business and am a paper freak. Over seven years ago, I bought the least expensive Carl rotary trimmer I could find, have used it A LOT and it still works great! I am however ready for a newer upgraded modle and this one is perfect!!!

  • Christine

  • Jason Brown

    I really would love this. I am tired of using scissors

  • KCMo

    This would be the bomb compared to the little Fiskers I’ve been using. My daughter is at college and quite active in leadership so she left with my Fiskers. She just had me look at this very trimmer on a web she sent to me. This would help immensely. I told her to wait it out for Santa!

  • Riz Momin

    This would be great for my kids School Project..

  • Valerie

    This is just what I need to cut the hundreds of papers that I have to send to more than 700 students weekly. This would be beneficial and would make my job a great deal easier!–I was typing too fast on my first post. That happens at school when every minute counts! Break is over…
