The Genesis Paper Trimmer

A precision Genesis Paper Trimmer is the perfect gift 
for an artist, photographer or paper crafter -- or anyone who wants perfect cuts on cardstock, paper, photographs or film.

Why?  Because it will be used every day for precision cuts on every project, and because it is made by hand in the USA and will last a lifetime.

If Santa didn't leave a Genesis Trimmer under your Christmas tree, 
you can do something special for yourself after the holiday!  Genesis Trimmers orders usually ship within 24 to 48 hours, and transit time to most U.S. locations is five business days or fewer!




Genesis Trimmer with Edgelight & Guide Bar
Genesis Trimmers are made in the USA!


The Genesis Trimmer is a precision paper trimmer that offers a unique accessory:  a light that shines through paper, cardstock and photos to illuminate the exact cutting line.  The Genesis is made in the USA and for more than 40 years, it has long been the favorite paper trimmer for professional photographers, newspapers, architects and film companies.  

Over the last 13 years, the Genesis Trimmer has been discovered and embraced by professional crafters and artists, and this new market has sent demand for Genesis Trimmers through the roof.  Because the original manufacturing company was very small,  a long waiting list for Genesis Trimmers developed, but we purchased the company in 2007, caught up on the waiting list orders and we've increased production in order to get Genesis Trimmers out more quickly for new customers.

Genesis 16" Trimmer 
with Edgelight


Hands down, the most popular Genesis Trimmer
 is the 16" model with edgelight.  This versatile trimmer has been our best-seller for more than a decade.  The 16" size is the best choice for those who cut 12"x12" paper because it will cut that size paper in both directions.

Genesis Edgelight Demonstration

The Genesis edgelight attaches directly to the 16" trimmer, and it shines upward through paper, cardstock or photos to show you your exact cutting line. The edgelight is particularly valuable when cropping photos, cutting along a diagonal line (as in the example above), and creating an even margin around a rubberstamped image.  The Genesis Edgelight can be shipped with the 16" Genesis Trimmer, but to avoid breakage, it is not attached to the trimmer before shipping.  Attaching the edgelight takes less than 10 minutes, start to finish, and directions are included with each edgelight.

Genesis 16" Trimmer 
without Edgelight
The Genesis edgelight is an amazingly effective accessory, but it does not have to be ordered at the same time as the trimmer. Some customers order the trimmer first, and add the edgelight later.

Ships via UPS only.

Genesis 12" Trimmer
(no edgelight option)

For those who are tight on space, and who cut mostly 8-1/2" x 11" paper, the 12" Genesis is a good option. The 12" Genesis will cut 12"x12" paper, but only in one direction. The 16" size is best for cutting 12"x12" paper.

Ships via UPS only.

Genesis Guide Bar

The Genesis guide bar is an adjustable metal guide you can set for repetitive cutting projects. The guide bar is tightened against the trimmer to create a "wall" against which you put your paper in order to cut at the exact same width each time, without having to look at the ruler.  The removable guide bar can be stored underneath the trimmer when not in use.

 

Genesis cutter wheel 
with gear

Genesis Trimmers use a unique gear-driven rotary cutting system.  Genesis cutter wheels stay sharp for an extraordinarily long time, but after years of use (or constant daily use over time), the sharpened edge will begin to wear away.  When cuts are no longer crisp and even, it is time to replace the cutter wheel. 

Replacement cutter wheels come with a new brass gear attached. You'll  need an Allen wrench to remove the old cutter wheel and install the new one.

Genesis cutter wheels are universal and can be used with all sizes of Genesis Trimmers.

Genesis Carriage Assembly

Companies and individuals who use Genesis Trimmers five days a week, 52 weeks a year, for YEARS may eventually need to replace a trimmer's cutter wheel, idler gear and/or nylon bearing.  The Genesis carriage assembly includes all of these essential parts already assembled by expert Genesis technicians and tested by quality control.  To replace the carriage, you'll just unscrew the ends of the slide bar, slide the old carriage off,  slide the new one on and re-attach the original handle.  The installation process is simple, quick and foolproof -- and the result is almost like getting a brand new trimmer!

A new Genesis carriage assembly replaces 10 essential trimmer parts at once, including the carriage itself, the cutter wheel, gear, bushing and axle; idler gear and screw; nylon bearing; and a new washer and nut for the handle. (Handle is not included, but is available separately.)

Genesis carriage assembly $69.00
