I have come to a bit of a cross roads in my little business. I am having trouble keeping up with my orders using my current combination of crummy little rotary cutter and exacto knife, and I am having panic attacks about getting ready for the Christmas markets, so I have a big decision to make. I need to buy some new equipment. I have sourced these two machines on ebay. The one above I would use for cutting large sheets of cardstock and Japanese paper, and the one below I would use for cutting my bookboard.
Since I am so terrible at making decisions, I am putting this out in the blogosphere - has anyone used these particular machines? Do you have any feedback? The large rotary trimmer is made by a company called Trio, and the guillotine is made by Kutrimmer. Any feeback or suggestions at all would be a great help. Like I said, a big decision (and investment) for such a little business!
