Rolla/Circa desk punch - how long?

Hi all,

New guy, first post, etc...

Can someone please tell me (a couple of days of searching hasn't helped me with this) is the Rolla/Circa desk punch long enough to punch A4 paper - say to add sheets into a Clairing notebook?

Also, is anyone familiar with a UK or Europe (preferably English-language) source for the punch? I've a funny feeling shipping from the US will be quite a lot...

Thanks all,

Mark..

Sure. It will work

The big punch has 12 punches

A4 paper is about 8.3 × 11.7 inches

The smurfs are an inch apart, so you get 11 discs in 10 inches with 0.85 inches at the top and bottom
or
You can get 12 discs in 11 inches with 0.35 inches top and bottom.

Either way, it works.

I don't think anybody has mentioned it, but the Rollabind punch, at least, has, on its sliding guide, a mark for A4 paper, so they have definitely thought about us Euro-dwellers. :-)

Actually, the big punch

Actually, the big punch (Circa) has 11 punches. But the answer is still yes, it will work. Clairfontaine paper in A4 has 11 punches along its length.

Hmmm... 11 or 12 ?

The link to Wilde-Ideas says 12
The pix I have found of the Levenger punch appear to have 11.
I have a Rollabind Big-Punch at home.
Must count the smurferators >:D

It goes up to 11

My punch from Levenger has 11 smurfers, just counted.

That will do

Hi,

I now own a Rollapunch (thanks jonglass !) and as I live in France, we use mostly A4 paper around here.
I have to say that it works like a charm this way. It uses all the smurfs so yes it will fit for Claring notebooks.

Back to paper from PDAs that sucked.

Hey !! Jonglass !! Any left ?

Also, is anyone familiar with a UK or Europe (preferably English-language) source for the punch?

Funny you should ask...

Jon found some and is funnelling them to European DIY-ers.

So, some deeper rooting

So, some deeper rooting around online has revealed a number of small craft/scrapbooking ecommerce sites based in the UK that sell the desk punch.

Unforunately, the standard price here tends to be GBP60 - as opposed to Levenger's USD60 :-/

That said, shipping of a 2 kilo monster, plus customs/VAT means that GBP60 is probably as good as it'll get. Oh well...

/reaches for credit card

At least my wife reckoned it was a 'reasonable expenditure'! (Don't know how I pulled that one.)
