This punch was the best deal I could find anyplace. I wanted to try the Circa system but did not have the cash to add a $80 punch to go with it. This punch will handle 1-2 papers at a time. No big deal. I am not working on stacks of papers. This little punch is sturdy though. I laminated a piece of card stock and not thinking tried to punch it as a half page checklist insert. It got stuck. Took me an hour of pushing on it and I could have sworn I was going to break it. It finally punched so I could pull it free. the punch is still perfect. :) so note to the wise. Dont try to use this to punch laminated sheets. Its tough though.

I should start by saying that when I purchased this, I could swear that I read it was made to punch up to 3 sheets at one time. I see now the description says 1 sheet. I never would have purchased it if I saw that.

Quality: I understand plastic makes for a lightweight travel option (one of the reasons I bought this), but this is terrible quality. Part of this actually broke while trying to punch three sheets of regular print paper (the cheap, thin, recycled kind). This is not the quality I've grown to expect from Levenger.

Design: It's broken down into three different punching sections. So not only do you need to punch ONE page at a time, but now you need to punch each page THREE TIMES if you're using letter sized paper! There's no way to lock them together - you have to press each of the three sections down to punch the full page. This makes no sense. It has a sizer, and the other punches don't have this. Just terrible design.

This is the most inconvenient, poorly designed office tool I have ever purchased. Very disappointing to have this come from Levenger when everything else I've ever ordered (my professional and personal life are run on the circa system) has been top notch.

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

An excellent punch for a few pages at a time. It is light but accurate, slim profile so it can be on the desk and still out of the way. Nicely made.

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

I have the original CIRCA portable punch - the two piece deal, but having recently introduced a cousin to CIRCA, my punch kept getting borrowed and I didn't always want to wait until it found it's way back home to punch my own papers. While this updated one piece version doesn't quite feel as sturdy in the hand as the original, but it does get the job done with ease. Compared to the original, it's spectacularly simple to line up the paper to be punched against the slide guide. Love how compact it is, too.

Great entry level punch

By 

from Lakewood, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

Since I'm brand new to Levenger, this is a great entry level punch - affordable, portable and flexible to punch different sized papers. Downside is that it only punches single sheets - but I'm not into volume. Perfect to punch the paper from the Inklings Freeleaf Pads that I just purchased. I plan to punch as I go! I used my $40 gift card to purchase this on sale.

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

This was my first time venturing into the world of Circa, and I wasn't really sure if I was going to like it. So the portable punch was a good low price investment just in case. After my first punch, I am hooked! Good for any size project you are working on. Love it!

Works well

By 

from South Dakota

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

I purchased this punch to add the leave her notecards and any other piece of stray paper I wind up taking notes on into my circa notebook. It works perfectly for this use. It's thin enough to put in my bag and I really appreciate the guidelines for each notebook size that make the punch spots accurate every time. It punches the thick Levenger index card paper fine--you do have to be sure to press down hard enough. if there was a way for it to fold in half, it would travel more easily, but that's just a minor complaint--it goes along way towards helping me keep my chaotic note-taking style organized and I use it almost every day. I'm very happy with it!

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

I use this for all of my custom sheets for my circa Jr notebook. I love to create and label my own custom tabs and then use the punch to add my own maps, company information, or personal information to my notebook. The punch works great, but you should only do one page at a time.

Comments about Levenger Circa 1-2-3 Portable Punch:

This product was perfect! It is exactly what I needed. It is easy to slip into my scrapbook bag without worrying about using too much extra space. Its not good for multiple thick cardstock pages, but it does work for individual pages.
