I was skeptical about buying this because I had read a lot of mixed reviews on other sites. However, needing to see exactly what I am punching out of paper or cardstock, especially when it comes to images, trumped those who said this was junk. They, I'm very pleased to say, were wrong! This punch gives me a clear view of an image. It takes very little effort to squeeze and the handle grip is ergonomically awesome! I have punched through up to 4 sheets of regular paper without any problems. 5 sheets is a little difficult for me, but it could be fine for someone else. With cardstock, I can punch through 3 sheets. Each circle pops out great and with no fraying or sticking in the punch. The description says this is a 1" punch, but I think it's a tad less, but it's not a noticeable difference to me. This should never be used to punch through tape or anything laminated due to sticky residue that will mess up the punch. I've not tried to punch through fabric. (Don't plan to.) I waited several weeks after receiving this to write a review because I wanted to use it often to see if it held up. I've been punching like crazy (I have a gift shop) and so has an employee. I'm definitely going to buy another one in a different size. :)
This punch is made of the best materials and made in the best way, as this is a "folding" punch. This punch folds down -- flat! It's super for storing and stacking one on top the other!!! But better yet, it punches a very clean nice square every time. So fast, so easy, and so fun to use.
