Re: Perforator



I am sure that there are sophisticated devices available, but here are
some low tech ways of making small runs:

1) Use a sewing machine to make the holes.  A jig can easily be made to
get straight (or curved) lines.

2) Fiskars makes a paper trimmer that has replaceable blades.  One of the
plades is for making perforations.  However, the cuts made are more like
dashes rather than holes.  It would work if you want "stamps" that could
be separated.  It would not work for making real circular holes.  The
best price I've seen on this has been at Staples (almost half of what
Quill charges).

3) I think that I saw a more typical perforation device in a Fiskars
catalog, but don't remember.

Good luck--
