2.0 out of 5 stars A design flaw, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this about a year ago. It lasted about 7 months, but the grey rubber ended up separating from the black plastic. For some reason, the phone kept popping out of the bumper in my pocket, which might have caused the wear. Contacted Poetic who sent out a replacement (if going down this route, make sure you ask them to put the value of the item as whatever you paid for it, as when they first sent the replacement they set the cost as $25 and Royal Mail then asked for £3.34 in import fees plus £8 handling, when I originally paid £9.95). The replacement popped out constantly, and lasted about 4 weeks before suffering the same problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Docrafts 5 mm Corner Punch (Misc.)
Well made corner punch - I used it to punch out ~4000 corners in one (very long) sitting, and it did so with no deterioration at all, and without destroying my thumb or hand. Has no problem cutting through 300gsm cardstock or laminated plastic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some drawbacks, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The good:
Sturdy card, good weight, works in the printers I've used it. The seller let me know when there was a delay without prompting, and as others have pointed out there is a single delivery charge for multiple items.

The bad:
It doesn't absorb as much ink/toner as card this weight printers expect. When setting the paper type to cardstock, I would typically get excess ink, or "ghosting" on lasers for subsequent pages. I got best results when setting the paper type to heavy (100-160gsm).

The ugly:
This is not A4. It is cardstock cut to approximate A4 size. I had huge variation in the width - A4 should be 210mm, and I had some as narrow as 207mm and some as wide as 213mm. Particularly irritating was when the paper tapered - it meant the printer did not pick up the card straight, and the print was therefore slightly angled. My use of the card involved trimming anyway, but this made using a guillotine much more painful. If you're thinking of using this for card making you might end up with some rather wonky results.
