    Default Getting Cuts

    I'm looking into getting a big guillotine cutter and I was wondering how you all cut your paper. Right now I just have a 30" mat cutter that can add an inch on one end if the cut isn't perfectly straight: lots of trapezoids, few rectangles.

    Thanks.

    I take all my paper to a local print shop and they cut it for $5.

    i've always brought my to another print shop. luckily there's one downstairs from me so it's a short trip in the freight elevator. cutters are mucho $$$ and a bitch to move.

    9000 lbs Seybold 1950 papercutter. Works great but we needed a crane to get it in.

    crazy coincidence...i was just at a local art store who was having a back to school 40% off sale, and considered buying an 18" cutter. it would have been pretty cheap after the discount, but i chickened out and didn't buy it because i wasn't sure how it would hold up. seemed kind of disposable. i'd probably do what all of you do and take my paper to a shop to get it cut, but after taking a class at the local public college, i realized how nice it is to have a cutter at all times (not just when a job is finished). i guess i could still take my shit to school, but it would be nice to be able to cut whatever i want whenever i want from home. hmmm...

    Guillotine cutters wont really cut straight all of the time either...I would find someone with heavy duty machinery.
