Used with Prayer Card Pouches for Name Badges
by Julietteo -
We purchased this slot punch along with the prayer card pouches to make name badges for our 50th year high school reunion. It was perfect. The price was right! And it was more economical that trying to find pouches with slot already punched. It was better constructed than I thought it would be - for the price, I expected it might be flimsy...but it was not at all. Easy to set the depth of the slot and easy to use rather than a hand held punch.

MY DAUGHTERS MAKES LETTER CARDS AND THE PUNCH HELPS WITH DISPLAY.
Sturdy and customizable
by SReynolds -
We are using this to punch slots in our ID badges and it works great. You can customize both the vertical and horizontal position, and it seems to be quite sturdy.

Why pay to have slots punched when you can do it yourself? It's the best of both worlds, and much cleaner-looking than using a regular round hole punch which we had previously tried.
Unusable numbers on side guide
by jer -
I would consider this product excellent except for one extremely frustrating aspect and that is the side guide. The side guide is needed to be able to accurately center the punches. I use laminating pouches that are measured in inches and eighths of an inch. Thus, I need a guide that is measured likewise. But this punch uses some other system that I have yet to figure out. The numbers on it (7, 10, 15, and 20)are useless. The distance from the numbers 10-15 and 15-20 is one inch with the distance between the numbers being marked off in tenths. After doing some measuring and calculating of my own, I was able to roughly determine where the guide should be set; although it was never precise since I needed measurements in eighths instead of tenths. On the plus side, the guide doesn't move easily once it's set. The numbering system on the side guide is my only complaint, although I consider that a serious fault. The ability to set the depth margin can be useful although I found the default setting to my liking. I found the punch to be well constructed and I would recommend it to people who only punch items of the same size or to people who aren't concerned too much about centering the punch. I would not recommend it to people who punch items of various sizes and who therefore have a need to constantly reset the side quide.
Not sharp enough to punch hole slot out
by Human Resources -
Cant punch the hole out from a single sheet or multiple sheets at one time. Punches half the hole out and you end up ripping the laminate trying to tear the punch off. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
