    Good morning everyone!

    I am looking for a hand scoring machine for my greeting cards. What machines or methods are you using? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, Andrea

     I use a Carl’s paper trimmer with a scoring blade. I swap out the blades depending on whether I’m cutting or scoring.

    I don’t do a whole lot of scoring, but when I do, I lock some 2 point rule into the chase and  use my press. I’ve also tried string scoring, by locking up two lengths of rule separated by 2 point lead and taping a string on the platen so that the string falls between the two rules. Works really well, but a bit trickier to set up.

    Has anyone used anything like this?

    on the cheap for small amounts, I’ve found the Martha Stewart scoring board great to use. Just a bone folder needed. Michael’s with a coupon….$12.

    I have used a carl paper trimmer but now I use a score board I bought off ebay.

    Manual table top Professional Scoring Creasing / Creaser Machine – 14¨capacity was the title. And I really like it. It has guides that are not just magnetic – you screw them down with hand screws and it keeps them more stable! I paid around $170usd

    And its a one motion score not like the carl which you had to lock down and then run the wheel across. 

    So far the only annoyance is I wish that it had a little more space to slide the paper in (and for me I wish it was much smaller! it is HUGE!)
