A question I have been asked quite often is what do I use to score my card bases. It depends on what style card I am making. When I'm using a hot dog fold card, cards folded on the short side, I use a Scor-Buddy and bone folder. I score the paper at 5 1/2", fold it in half, then use the bone folder to add a nice crease.
I use something quite different for hamburger fold cards, which are cards folded on the longer side. For several years, I donated cards to a non-profit organization. Their preferred cards were hamburger fold cards. I made A LOT of cards every year for this organization, so I would buy a full case of heavy weight quality card stock from a local paper store. (I use Accent Opaque Digital 100# cover weight paper.) I would have the paper store cut the entire case in half for card bases, which saved me so much time. My little Scor-Buddy just wasn't enough to handle the large quantity of cards I made.
So I searched the internet for a more efficient tool. This is what I bought. It is a manual paper creasing/scoring machine.
I made a quick video on my YouTube channel to show how it works. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it on YouTube.
Yes, it is HUGE! And a little pricey. I realize this isn't the appropriate tool for everyone. But I've had mine for several years now and still just love it. I use it every week. Prepping all the card bases for my 6x6 videos takes me only minutes. I don't remember where I bought it, but I've included a few links to similar machines I found.
