      Can cut 13x19

          Comments about Dahle Vantage Trimmer - 18":

          So far I really like this. Seems sturdy and I can (despite the 18" limit to a single cut) cut/trim 13x19" prints with very little trouble (and a lot less expensive that a larger cutter). Since I purchased it for cutting photo prints, I would not use it for any other purpose as I don't want to put undue stress on this device (but others may find that they can use it for cutting other types of paper).

            Comments about Dahle Vantage Trimmer - 18":

            Began cutting with a crisp edges and less than a 100 cuts it did show some tearing instead of cutting tendencies. While the arm blade and trimmer side edge are straight the rubber flap created an allusion that the photo is not getting cut straight due to the washer that makes the flap not align to edge in a straight manner. I also wish it had inch markers on the trimmer as well as the current ruler guidelines.

                For an amature photographer with a limited amount of money to spend on my hobby, this has been one of my best purchases for the price.

                    What I like:
                    - Sturdy
                    - I can cut up to 18 inches sheets
                    - I can cut between 5 and 10 regular papers

                    What I dislike:
                    - Can't cut over 10 regular sheets or 3 100 lb card stock papers
                    - The paper stopper, the black plastic piece, does not stop paper from slipping therefore I had to stop and press the paper with my hand which is annoying in cutting big quantities.

                    Worry free clean cuts for masterpieces

                    Comments about Dahle Vantage Trimmer - 18":

                    With high Demand for professional fine artwork cuts, this slicer is incredibly economical for what it can pull off.

                    Whether you're a photographer, giclee production artist, or scrapbook mommie; this device will certainly do the job asked for.

                    It fits on a small work desk just fine. It's definitely a good starting point for intermediate/professional enterprises until a company can get buck-willy and enter very large format processing.

                    It's not meant to be something to wrestle with, since it's a combination of springs, plastic, rubber, and metal; so treat it with finesse and it'll last forever.
