I'm a freelance copyeditor, and the Circa system makes my work life much easier. I've been using the Circa system for years, and I've used the business-card punch from time to time, but it's impractical to use for larger sheets since getting the spacing right is difficult.

As an editor, I have several clients, each of whom has numerous ongoing projects, so I've recently started doing much more customization with my notebooks. Printing custom title pages on colored cardstock, then using the punch to put them in my notebooks, lets me assign a color to each client, making it easy to ID my work at a glance. For a recent project I had hundreds of pages of research documents that I printed out for easy note-taking and cross-referencing, and with the desk punch I was able to punch numerous sheets at once for inclusion in a large notebook.

The desk punch is an invaluable tool for anyone who uses the Circa system with any regularity, and I recommend it highly.

I thought my punch was defective and exchanged it. But the second one is no better. No matter how hard I try, how much time I spend carefully feeding a page or two into the punch, it will not go in all the way. As a result, half of each page I punch has holes too close to the edge and it will not hook onto the circa discs. It is very frustrating as I think highly of Levenger. I've tried everything to help it along. I really don't want to buy the bulky super size punch - but I may have too. It is that or go back to 3-ring binders. This is not working.

I love this punch!

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

I started off with the 1-2-3 punch, and while I still love that punch, I realized that I would need to upgrade to the desk punch for how often I use it! I love my circa planner, and I punch EVERYTHING so I can keep it all in one place. The desk punch is perfect! I can't imagine my circa without it!

Great product

By 

from MD

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

This is a great punch. I started using the circa products and quickly realized that the punch could provide me with endless possibilities. I love it! I use it at the office and am able to add my own pages like meeting agendas, drawings, schedules, emails, anything. I use it at home to create recipe books, craft inventory books etc. At the office, at home or on the go with the circa notebooks and this punch will keep you organized.

Decent punch - room for improvement

By 

from Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

Use to gather recurring project updates into a Circa folder. The punch has a nice design and finish, however, punch jams up with just a few papers and it can be difficult to insure paper is evenly inserted along the full length of the punch because punched paper can jam up on inner most part of paper insertion. I really like the Circa system, but would like to see a heavy duty punch for larger grouping of paper - similar to my 3 hole punch which can easily punch 30-40 pages....

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

I recently began utilizing a disc bound planner system. Knowing I would eventually require a punch to add my own pages to the planner, I spent a lot of time researching various ones on the market. All of the reviews I found recommended the Levenger Circa punch for quality and for the larger circular part of the punched hole vs. the competition. I am very happy with my Circa Universal Desk Punch and have already been putting it to good use!

Perfect compliment for my Circa notebooks!

By

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

Do I wish it could punch more pages at a time? Yeah I do. The paper I use (thick artist paper), I can do maybe 4 sheets at a time. Would this prevent me from recommending it? Heck no. This thing is awesome/perfect for anyone wanting to insert their own type of 'special' paper into any circa notebook. I personally have one notebook dedicated to drawings, but I do all of my drawing on an art desk free from any notebooks. When I have a finished piece I wish to keep, I use this punch to insert it into the notebook, perfecto :)

Beauty And Function Meet

By

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

The Universal Desk Punch exceeded my expectations. I purchased the punch in 2008, and it functions like new. Since 2008 I have punched approximately ten pages weekly. The quality is outstanding.

It sits on my ultra-modern, glass-top desk and adds a sleek retro feel. Simply beautiful! Highly recommended.

Works like a charm

I haven't had time to use the punch extensively, but it is easier to use than my 3-hole punch and the cuts are crisp and fit perfectly.

Great purchase

By 

from SF Bay Area

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

Not much of an explanation needed here. I love having the option to add pages to my Circa notebooks. Now that the dot grid paper has been discontinued I'll probably start printing my own (I wish this wasn't the case. Levenger, please start producing it again!).
This punch is going to get a lot of use.

Quality paper punch

By 

from Lima, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about Levenger Circa Universal Desk Punch:

I am self employed in the art/architecture restoration field. I have found that Circa notebooks are great for project planning and client presentation. With the Universal Desk Punch, I can now move from loose leaf notes and sketchbooks to action planning notebooks, to a presentation folder without loosing the creativity and spontaneity of the initial planning stages. The client loves the original drawings that I punch to fit into the Circa system and the presentation looks very professional. The client then has the ability to participate even more by reorganizing the sections in the notebook and I see new perspectives from their point of view. Final presentations are a documentary keepsake, as we restore, update and modernize their homes. The Universal Desk Punch is simple to use and sturdy. It even punches cardstock for the cover pages.
