Punches

I have had a lot of you e-mailing me and leaving me comments asking why I don't like the new Stampin' Up! border scallop punch. My answer is that it punches terribly. Yes, I know that I can punch it with wax paper and with foil but, honestly, you should not have to do that with a brand new punch. I LOVE the Fiskars Threading Water punch and have never had to do that with it. I know that I will get to love my SU punch after I do the necessary steps to make it better but until then it drives me crazy. I have used it many times and the oil marks from the factory are still showing up. That usually disappears after time but they are there.

Okay, those are my thoughts. Maybe I just got a bad punch. I hope that's just it.

Have a great day!

  1. I bet you did get a wonky punch. I haven't had any of those prolems with mine, but I also haven't used it very much yet either.Good luck with it! See if you can get a new one.

  3. You must have gotten a bad punch. I am a demo and have sold about 20 of them...not one complaint as of yet. I bought one and LOVE it!!! None of the problems you are having...cuts throught the cardstock like buttah!!!!
    I would get an exchange if I were you.

    I don't care for mine either for the same reasons. My threading water punch works much, much better.

  8. I am with you Robyn. My threading water is way better. My SU punch takes too much work.

  9. I was disappointed in mine as well. It's my first SU punch and it's awful! I kept reading how the SU punches are the best, not sure I will buy any more to find out if the others are any better.

  10. I am getting mine this afternoon, so I hope I don't have any trouble. I did use my demo's and it was awesome. So you may want to contact SU and get yours replaced.

  11. Robyn,
    Mine works perfectly. I'd get a new one! I have called DS before about a defective Perfect Layers set and they had no problems with replacing it, even though it was after the 90 days. But, you know SU better than most, so that is not news to you! :-)
    Cya!

  12. Robyn - glad to hear about the new SU punch. I am a FISKAR punch girl - I have tried a couple SU ones like the circle and ticket corner and havent had problems. I have tried several marvy ones and other BIG punches like punch-it company and they are AWFUL compared to Fiskars. You cant beat the fiskar brand. I LOVE their squeeze punches. They are so much easier to use than any other punch out there!!!

    I don't know about the stampin-up punch although I was hopeing that its better.??I bought the "FISKARS Punch" that I saw Carol using BUT ITS THE WORST PUNCH I OWN. I have about 30 punches,Carl ,MathaStewart,Marvy,stampin_up circles but I would never buy a Fiskars punch again..It just eats up the paper,Paper gets stuck in the punch its just one big trouble punch...Never again.
    Unlessthey send me a new one to try...Blessings to you Carol from australia...

  16. Hmmmm good to know that I'm not the only one having issues with this punch. I was soooo excited when it came out! I do love not being forced to have dots in my scallops like the fiskars on. I have just been sanding off the edges. Never even thought to contact SU! Will do now though! Since I'm signing on to become a demo tonight I will know who to call! I'm so excited! lol
