A quality tool for every Circa Lover!
I use this beefy punch daily. I am a devoted Circa journal/notebook lover, and I print out photos, magazine articles and a host of other things just punch them and stick them in one of many Circa notebooks.

Singlehanded use, sturdy punch!
Purchased for my husband and myself, this punch has gone the distance! We were very impressed with the weight of the unit and the ease with which you can use it. If I can use it singlehanded, anyone can! (You may wish to put your name on it so others will have to get their own!)

I was a little skeptical at first to pay this much for a hole punch, but it is worth every penny. Don't hesitate! It is a very substantial piece and will last a lifetime. Levenger's customer service is also excellent!

totally worth it
This punch is pretty amazing. It is sturdy enough to punch through several pages. It has been very handy to have at work and has helped overfill my notebook in no time.

Exactly what I needed
I have a custom baseball scorebook that I print and construct each season. Because of the nature of the book, it needs a circular--rather than a spiral--binding, and finding an establishment that does such binding is always difficult.
This year, I decided to try the Circa binding and do it on my own. As you see, the finished product looks great, and despite wear-and-tear of a ballgame, the binding is holding up admirably.
I found the hole-punch easy to adjust, in order to punch holes evenly across an 8.5" edge. The punch worked well on the cardstock pages, tho the cardboard covers were a bit too thick to slide into this model. I may upgrade to the heavy-duty hole-punch for the next scorebook, but this time an exacto-knife served as a good backup.
Thank you for offering such a useful product. I wish its possibilities had occurred to me sooner.

New Use for Circa Punch
I'm a rubber stamper and paper crafter and was having a difficult time storing the plethora of fancy ribbons and trim I often use as embellishments for the cards and tags I make. The drawer I kept them in always seemed to be a tangled mess no matter how many times I straightened it, so I started putting the ribbons into small plastic reclosable bags. This worked well for the wider ribbons, but the narrow ones just wouldn't lie flat until I hit upon the solution of using my Circa desk punch. After cutting a 3" x 5" index card in half, I punched 3 notches along both sides of the card and wrapped the ribbons around it. The notches kept the ribbons from slipping, and a bit of paper tape on the back of the card held them in place. I could then insert them easily into the 3" x 4" plastic bags. Also, for wider ribbons, I just moved the punched card over slightly and punched again to make a wider notch. It's just another way my Circa system helped me get organized.

Must have for Circa users but wish for higher cap
I thing that everyone that starts using Circa needs a punch in order to take full advantage of the system. I love this punch and felt the price and quality were consistent with other items from Levenger.
My only issue with the product is that it processes too few pages at a time. I expected to be able to process more than 6 or so pages at once. Outside of that I'm very happy I got it.

Love the desk punch!
I finally succumbed to the Desk Punch while visiting the Chicago store recently. While it doesn't punch a lot of pages at once, it can easily handle card stock and it's great to be able to add meeting agendas and other documents to my Circa notebook that has become my portable brain! As others have noted, it's very heavy but I don't really need it for portability, and I'm satisfied it is sturdy enough that I can depend on it for years to come.
