Well, I will have to look around when I am there. That is not the part of the store I usually visit.

My first paper trimmer was a Carl. I didn't know anything about paper trimmer's then. It was a wonderful trimmer. I love it so much. They stopped making blades for it so I couldn't use it any more. I bought other trimmers over the years. I hated them. Never cut straight or were drama queen trimmer's. I found I was cutting better with my X-acto knife and a ruler. I gave up on trimmer's. I do think about a guillotine trimmer. I also think of my cat's tails in the trimmer too. Trust me with those two that would be a reality and not a silly worry.

I bought a paper trimmer by X-Acto years ago from Wally World and loved it, easy to use, small n portable, cut straight etc... I learned 2 important lessons though:

1 buy products needing replacements that are available thru multiple sources. W discontinued the cutter only a couple of years after I purchased it making it obsolete. That is why I settled on a Carl, it can be purchased thru office supply stores as well as an occasion craft or art store. Dahle is much the same but the office supply closest to me carried Carl so that was my pick.

2 Never depend on WM to carry something in their stores long term. They are more of a get a great price/deal once then move on. If a store could have a d d, they would be one.

Bookmarks are a great place to try out a technique or two. They are small and if you mess up, no great loss.

But guillotine trimmers don"t also score. I use my trimmer to score almost as much as I cut.
