|Rotary paper trimmers are great for working with paper, crafts, laminating pouches, photographs and much more. While you could use scissors to get the job done, a rotary trimmer is going to give you the perfect straight edge that hand holding a pair of scissors will never duplicate. Rotary trimmers come in a variety of "flavors," from small home use models to larger commercial ones. Manufacturers of quality trimmers include Akiles, Fiskars, Swingline, Fellowes, and Martin Yale.
Most rotary trimmers have built in safety features, and some models allow for interchangeable blades, offering crafting enthusiasts options for pretty decorative edges on the photographs and in their scrapbooks. Rotary cutters, also called rolling trimmers, generally offer the cutting blades encased in a plastic housing, that virtually eliminates the chance of personal injury. The rotary action allows the blade to cut in either direction and sharpen itself as it cuts. This self-sharpening action helps to produces a clean burr-free cut, time after time, and guarantees many years of smooth precision cutting.
