Circa 123 Portable Punch
Great on-the-go punch
I bought this punch as a second punch to keep at my office. It is absolutely perfect for this as I can now happily punch the one or two things a day I need to add to my book instead of collecting them to punch at home. I don't think I could ever use this as my only punch, but for my purposes it is perfect. I also love how lightweight and compact the punch is - it will be perfect for travel as well. Highly recommended.

Hole punching on the go...
I am glad to have such a lightweight hole punch, however, it took a few times to make it work easily.

one sheet at a time
The punch is easy to use, but can only accommodate one sheet at a time. The punch had a difficult time accommodating a single thickness of manila folder (cardstock).

Great concept, poor execution
I purchased this portable punch for several reasons. I love the compact design and the ability to lock the punch when not in use. I was super excited when my punch arrived. I opened it, read the instructions, and was ready to use my portable punch. Unfortunately, within the first 2 minutes of use (as I was punching a custom size file folder) the first hand grip came off twice. Needless to say I'm disappointed. The only reason I didn't reason the product was because I discarded the shipping box and packing slip. I would not recommend this product.

A must have
This punch is a must have for all circa users. It is small, light weight and easy to use. I find I like this better than my big big punch for most jobs. You can only punch one piece at a time, but adjustments between letter and junior are easy which makes this ideal.

Perfect Little Hole Punch
This hole punch is perfect to put in my small desk drawer or throw in my bag when I'm on the move! It's not great at thick paper or multiple sheets but otherwise is great! Highly recommended!

I have the larger punch but wanted a more portable one to travel from home to work. I can now punch a few papers at work to add to my notebook as needed.

I purchased this mini hole puncher to accommodate new pages during the school/work day. It fits perfectly in my briefcase and is light weight. It's a great addition to my Levenger set.

I just bought a second Circa portable punch. I used to tote the one I had back and forth between home and work, for which it is well-suited. But it's an inexpensive enough item to have one at each location, a great convenience. It's a sturdy and well-made product. After two years, one of the punches gets stuck very occasionally. But overall I'm very happy with the punch.

Great for travel and small spaces
If you are trying to decide between the desk punch and this portable punch, let this help you:
If you want something lightweight (plastic), small, and inexpensive, get the portable punch.
If you want it to last longer, punch multiple pages at once, and faster to use, and do not mind weight, get the desk punch. If you want to make your own Circa covers, get the heavy duty punch. Each has its purpose.
