ANyone know where on the web u can order a door hanger hole puncher? I tried Office max and they didin't have any. I got a drill bit but It's meant for wood and thus just shredded my stack of paper I tested it on ( an old phone book). Office max charges $450+ for 1,000 colored flyers. However, I have a nice printer and can do the same for about $50 or less! Just need to find the right puncher. I did searches for about 1/2 an hour on the internet but found nothing but standard 1,2,3 hole puchers.;)

I wonder if you check out your local craft store if they might have something in their scrapbooking section that would get it done. It would probably take you longer, but if you've got a few kids or a sweet wife, maybe they'd give you a hand.

They cut them for me too. I saw more than one machine for cutting so I might check that out. See if they can do that.

In my opinion its cheaper just to order from somewhere and have them shipperd right to your house/office. Ijust ordered 3000 door hangers and 3000flyers for $230 from www.3000doorhangers.com. I will let you know how they turn out when they get here.

You can't go by the results of a phonebook, because of the thickness of the pages. It is entirely different. A wholesay would work, but you have to compress the hangers together where they are going to be cut. 2 C clamps with small wood slats (to distribute the compression) would work. You just have to plunge the saw slow. If you have a drill press, that would be the best thing.

craftstores have punches usually in the stamp/scrapbooking sections, or maybe just buy the doorhangers blank and print them yourself. Blank doorhangers come with a whole prepunched you just have to print and then cut them in 1/2 or 1/3's depending on the style you buy. google search blank doorhangers and you will find many companies sell them. They go for like $25/1000. Punching holes seems like alot of work to me.

Heh, is 1" big enough of a hole to go around most door knobs ( w/slit on side too of course)??? I'm about to order one of these punchers but just want to make sure it will do the trick first!

Thanks for showing me this!

I've been using it with no problems, but you do need the slit in the side.

I ordred a 1" single hole punch a while back to make my own doorhangers. I made a few, but in the end it is sssooooo much easier and I believe economical to order "real" doorhangers from a company such as 3000doorhangers.com.
But the 1" size hole fit doorknobs quite well.
It takes a lot of time to punch the holes and then cut the slits.

It is a pain the the butt, but it really only takes about 2 hours to do 750 door hangers (punch holes and cut.) if you have nothing else to do it's worth it, considering the cardstock paper is only 12 bucks per 250 sheets (1 sheet=3 door hangers)

I bought a 1" hole punch at a local scrap booking store. It cost about $10. I didn't take me too long to punch the holes and cut the slits, especially with my wife helping. I has worked well for me. Good Luck!!

I just bought a pack of blanks from a print supply store to print myself. They're already punched but need to be cut into thirds with a paper cutter after printing. (1000 cards for $29).
