For many people, a smaller substrate cutter is best. Your projects don't require long cuts, so why have a cutter that takes up more space than you need? Here you'll find not only the most affordable substrate cutters, but the lengths that work best for most users. You should always get a cutter that is long enough for the work you do. Having too short a cutter means you are limiting your work. So if you have a limit already set, and sticking to it, buy the cutter that works best for you!
