AuthorSubject: Trimming inkjet prints   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Fabrice Grover
Posted on Fri Dec 26, 2003 5:59 PM

Any suggestions on the best way to trim inkjet prints?

I bought an inexpensive plastic roll cutter with an X-acto blade to trim down 4 X 5 inch prints made on 8.5 X 11" paper, but the X-acto blade runs above a recessed plastic groove: push down too hard and the blade catches on the bottom of the groove, dulling the blade's edge; apply too little pressure and the paper shifts, leaving an uneven cut.

What are the best tools for trimming off unwanted borders, or for creating borders of precisely even width? I have tried using an X-acto knife and a ruler, but this is a slow process and I never know when to switch blades. I generally discover it's time to switch when the edge being cut turns out ragged, effectively ruining the print I'm attempting to trim.

Are the expensive metal roll cuters the only way to go? If so, who makes the best ones and what's the best kind? And is there an inexpensive alternative?

I'm mostly making letter sized prints on Epson Enhanced Matte with an Epson 2200, but I would like to find a solution that could trim larger paper sizes as well.
