Why are There Different Kinds of Scissors in the Catalog?

 The Paper Snips (103579) are especially for detailed paper cutting.

The Craft and Paper Scissors (108360) are designed for clean cuts on ribbon, fabric & card stock.
The Craft & Rubber Scissors (103179) are for heavy-duty cutting like twine, rubber, wood sheets or wire.

To keep your scissors in excellent condition follow these tips:
  • If scissors are gummed up or dirty, clean them with dish soap or rubbing alcohol and dry thoroughly.  
  • When cutting wire cut the wire at the back of the blade, near the hinge, for greater leverage and to keep the tips of the blade sharper.
  • If your scissors become dull, cut through tin foil to sharpen them. 
  • If your scissors need additional sharpening, fabric stores have professional scissor sharpening services or can recommend a reputable company.

Stampin’ Up! scissors are useful for so many projects and can be used to cut many different types of materials. You’ll get the best results if you use the scissors for their intended purpose.  

With a little care your scissors will be around to help you create projects of all types for a long time! Please call (937) 416-0245 or email me if you have more questions about caring for any Stampin’ Up! products.
