Are you in the market for a paper cutter? If you are, you’re going to need to be clear on what features different models have. With an investment like a paper cutter, you don’t want to make a mistake and buy something that isn’t ideal for you. Below you’ll find a list of the different type of paper cutters.

Although many cutters are used as photo trimmers, some are specifically designed for cutting photos. The LiteCut photo trimmer is an example of a photo trimmer, being a standard arm cutter. This model has a built-in light that shines through the photographic paper making precise cutting easier.
Economic paper trimmers are the most recognizable paper trimmers. They’re usually used in schools and churches and consist of a metal cutting arm with a wood base. These cutters are good for occasional paper cutting and usually cut four to 10 sheets of paper at a time without fraying the edges.
Arm cutters look a lot like economic paper trimmers, except that they’re designed to be used more frequently and to cut more sheets of paper at the same time. The arm cutters can handle between 15-50 sheets of paper at a time.
Rotary paper trimmers are different from other cutter in the way that they cut. A rotary trimmer has a round blade that is encased in a cutting head, which slides along a metal bar. The blade cuts the paper when the cutting head slides across the bar. Rotary paper trimmers are widely used by photographers and are perfect for precision cutting.
Foam trimmers and rotary paper trimmers work a lot alike. Foam trimmers use a cutting head that slides along a metal bar. The foam is cut when the blade slides along the bar. These are designed to cut through Styrofoam and mounting board.
Guillotine cutters are high-end, high-volume paper cutters. These are for people who know what they’re doing. Guillotine cutters can cut entire stacks of paper into various sizes. You just place the paper on the cutter, lock the clamp into place and pull the handle, which brings the blade down through the paper. Some manual guillotine cutters can cut up to 800 sheets of paper at a time.
Electric semi-automatic cutters work like manual guillotine cutters. The greatest difference between them is that semi-automatic cutters have power-driven blades, which do not require any manual help. You put the paper on the cutter, lock the clamp into place and push a button to bring the blade down through the paper.
With a fully automatic guillotine cutter you can cut large amounts of paper. These cutters have a power-driven clamp and blade. Many of these cutters are capable of cutting a three-inch stack of paper. You can also choose a fully automatic digital cutter. The only difference between these two is the way you adjust the cut. The former is manual, and the latter, on a keypad.
The fully automatic digital guillotine cutters are capable of cutting large amounts of paper, having a power driven clamp and blade. Many of them are capable of cutting a three-inch stack of paper. The only difference between the fully automatic cutters and the fully automatic digital cutters is the way you adjust the cut. Again, it’s either manual, or digital.
