Over the weekend I needed to print and cut about two dozen 5 x 7 prints from 8.5 by 11 sheets of photo paper.
Normally I used a cheap hobby shop plastic plate to cut photo paper to size. Most of the time I end up tarring some of the edges, because I need to cut back and forth, but they do get covered up by the mat board.

I was looking on line for something better, maybe a guillotine cutting board, but I see that a matt board cutters can also be used to make a clean cut a single sheets of photo paper.

My current mat board cutter can only cut 29'' 3/4 wide and obviously could not cut a full standard sheet of 40 x 32" mat board. There has only been a few times that I needed matting greater than 30 inches and then I use the local framing shops to help me with the larger size. BUT cutting photo paper is getting to be a pain.

my question regarding cutting larger sheets of photo paper 13 x 19, would it better to use a guillotine type of handle held single sheet cutter for the rare 13x19 photo paper or invest in a better 40" mat cutter (or larger) ? Then Logan or Rototrim brand name?

Thanks as always
Don
