In general when I buy anything for the office, its always a case of spend as much as you can afford to and try not to get carried away buying something full of features that I would never use. That is just a total waste of money.
One of those pieces of office equipment that is always on hand is my paper trimmer. I create a lot of presentations and display items so for me a good trimmer is very important. I could opt for a cheap run of the mill trimmer. Let’s face it, how long would it really last. One thing I can’t abide is false economy and buying a cheap paper trimmer was never going to happen.
In the end I opted for a good heavy duty cutter, the Dahle 554. Its quite big, A2 size but for me it fits the bill. Most of my presentations are in A3 size, and very occasionally I will take it up to A2.
So why did I choose such a large trimmer?
The truth of the matter is, on those VERY odd occasions when I do need A2 what would I have to do to get the job done? The answer would be to pay a local stationery / print shop to do it for me.
So as you can see, even if you don’t use the larger trimmer size that often it will soon pay for itself in not much time at all.
