Cutting Corners (literally!)...

Postby Kurgan » Saturday July 6th, 2019 5:15pm

So up until now I've been printing a lot of my custom cards out in rectangle format (which is fine as I mostly just slip them into sleeves with a bit of card stock, not even bothering to glue them...),
but a few have these nice rounded corners that I carefully cut with a scissors.

So then I heard about the corner cutters, which are these cheap little stamps. There's more expensive tools out there that do a better job, so I went with a mid-grade option, the Corner Chomper.

This isn't meant as an advert, just for informational purposes. Who here has used one, and do you have any better suggestions (that won't break the bank)?

I was amazed too upon discovering the elusively wonderful tool known as a Corner Cutter. However, mine is completely different from that.

Yeah, I passed it up because they say this is better when you have more to do. There's another step beyond all these that is that one that looks like a press, that has the joystick handle and sits on a table. Now that thing is hard core!

I got one of these, and am not at all impressed. I don't think they make the cut clean enough :|

Now comparing to the real thing, the actual corners on the HQ cards (NA style) must be 1/8th or maybe even 1/16th...
