My Binding- Business Duo Trimmer Review

I have always wanted my own personal paper cutter so you can imagine my excitement when MyBinding.com reached out to me to review a product of theirs.  It didn't take me more than 30 seconds to let them know that I wanted to review their Business Duo Trimmer paper cutter. I was so excited to get this in the mail and I can tell you that I am certainly in love!!!


The awesome thing about this paper cutter is that it's two cutters in one!! A guillotine trimmer on one side, and flip it on over for the rotary trimmer, which has three blades in one! Straight, perforated and waved! SO cool!!!

Did I mention that it also has a round corner cutter!?
Well, it does!

So after I picked my jaw up off the ground, I got to work trimming my Halloween Games and Centers.
I started with the guillotine trimmer because that's the side I was most excited about!
It was very easy to use.

Then I did the fliparoo and attempted the rotary trimmer side. That one gave me some trouble!
See the clear plastic...that's where the cutting takes place. See where my apple is...yea, wasn't pretty!
But once I figured out where to actually place the paper, it worked perfectly!



Then I put the "paper monster" to the real test. How did it handle laminated paper?!

Worked like a charm!

Then I used the corner cutter to trim the corners of the laminated cards, since those can get pretty pokey. So easy!!!


Another feature that I really liked was the little "catch all" on the end of the guillotine side.

I got all of my Halloween themed games and centers cut and trimmed in less than an hour!
{all the erasers and containers were purchased in the Target dollar section!}

Then I put "Trimmy", as I like to call her, away in her cozy little spot.
Until next time!

  14. I want one! I have just a simple rotary cutter and use it for everything but that rounded corner feature is a selling point for me. Thanks for the info.

  15. I'm curious about the wave cutter thingy... what would you use that for? hmmm.
    Very handy that is has a rounded corner cutter.
    I've been needing a guillotine trimmer at home.
