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.

        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!

              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!

                    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.

                          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.

                                Purchased this item to enable me to make personalized sketchbooks with watercolour paper, thinking that one sheet at a time was no problem when making a book of only 10 pages or so. HOWEVER, it will not accept even thin watercolour paper, or any of the other art papers I had planned to use with it. Therefore not really useful for anything I had planned to do with it.

                                      I am a reluctant Circa user admittedly getting a little spooked by the price and hoping that I can really make effective use of the products. Once I had a few items, though, I figured "in for a penny, in for a pound" and purchased the smaller portable hole punch, not quite ready to commit to the big desk top variety. I have been very pleased with this purchase. It works very well although, as described, is limited to one or two pages depending on how thick. I have used it to Circa punch some tab dividers I already owned and it works great. Single sheets of paper are a breeze. For an intermittent user or someone who doesn't need to punch piles of pages this is a great product.

                                                  I am beyond happy with this punch due to its compact travel size as well as the ability to do what it says its supposed to do. I just recently bought a Happy planner and I needed to have some holes punched into my inspiration cards I wanted to place in between each week. Sure I can do the old slow method of getting a single whole puncher and punch them out, but who has time for that? I searched everywhere for the best punch and this one caught my eye. Not only is the price good, but its quality is simply the best. each punch is perfect.

                                                  I'm only able to punch 3-4 pages at a time, which is fine for occasional adds to my notebook. If you're planning to do a massive, custom print and inserting it into a disc planner, I would go for the larger punch option.

                                                        Love the concept of adding additional outside pages to my binder. Am disappointed that the pages have to be alligned "just so" or the punch is off. Works well with standard printer paper, not so well with thicker stock.
