SCORING

Paper fibers can be a problem when folding thicker stock. Paper fibers do not always bend causing cracking on the fold. There is a solution. We will first place a score where the fold line is. This will assist the paper fibers to bind and give your paper a nice clean fold. We also score our thicker covers on saddle stitch booklets which give you a cleaner edge. If you prefer to receive your cards flat and would like to fold them after you write in them, we can score them which will help you have a professional fold even doing it by hand. We can also apply multiple scores on your project with our state of the art machine.
