I was using this punch to round the corners of laminated photos, but after a few photos it stopped punching through and now only bends the corner and jams. I think the cutting die may be slightly bent. Maybe I was trying to use the punch for something it wasn't intended, but I don't think 5 mil laminated photos are particularly heavy duty. It still works for plain paper.
This punch lets you remove the plastic clip so you can punch the straight side of a piece of paper to make a scalloped edge, but to do this would be so tedious I don't know why anyone would choose this method over scalloped-edge scissors.
One other thing I wanted to point out: Another reviewer said this punch was the one to use for playing cards. However, the radius of this punch is 1/4", and the corner radius of standard playing cards is 1/8" (the same as a credit card corner). You can still use this punch for playing cards, but be aware the corners will be larger than a standard deck. Unfortunately there does not appear to be a consumer-grade scrapbooking corner rounder smaller than 1/4" (I found 1/8" punchers but they were much more expensive).
The other corner punch I tried and kept was the Aidox Angle 5mm Eater Corner Rounder Small. It has its own shortcomings (it struggles with a laminated photo and can't round very small pieces of paper), but it seemed to make consistent clean corners better than the Paper Shapers punch.
Also, you have to be really careful to get the corner you're punching lined up and inserted correctly or you can easily ruin it. This may also be true of other corner punches, though.
I like that it has the corner guide to make sure you line everything up properly but this isn't a warrant to fly through your work. Make sure you take the time to fit the corners in properly to get the best results.
As for the radius, it was perfect for my project but, as some people said, this isn't going to match the radius on business cards or playing cards. The radius is closer to that of an AA battery.
After quite a few mistakes, I finally discovered a trick with this product. First hold it in your hand, top facing up. Now, invert it, so that the blade (underside) is visible. Insert your sheet of paper into the cutter, making sure that the corner of the paper is positioned *exactly* into the "V" of the cutter blade. Then, depress the lever gently, and you will have a cleanly rounded corner without the "step" you'd have if you couldn't see what was happening. I've cut literally 100's of sheets this way. After each cut, tap out the cutoff bit of paper, and it will never have a jam.

I completely believe EK Success would replace my corner rounder if I called and asked. I have not called yet. But I was a bit cranky when this corner rounder broke so soon.Published on September 18, 2013 by Skyeisle
