    When you make the score line. Do you fold the paper so the score line is on the inside of the paper or the outside of the paper?

    The bump side of the score line should be on the inside of the paper when folded.

    Thanks, that was very helpful. I make a lot of cards on my computer and when I fold the cardstock paper by hand, I get wrinkles. I going to get me a bone folder asap. (:

    But what do you mean by "the bump side"? I did a google search specifically to find out which side of the page you PLACE the score line on … and this did video did not address that.

    See the video description. We added another link to a video that may better explain your question.

    when you score the paper the side you press down on gets an indent, the other side gets a bump. The bump goes inside the fold.

    Do you score card stock before or after put in the printer pc ?

  • Reply Sarah October 16, 2013 at 11:33 pm

    pfft, im still using my fingers to score my paper i dont care if its "crisp"

  • Reply Almir Sahinovic November 5, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    It would make more sense to do it after it comes out of the printer just so everything is aligned correctly. But it shouldn't really matter

    LCI, how do I score for quarter fold? I'm thinking use the tool down the 11" side of the stock, but NOT through the original score?

  • Reply Zource C.S September 3, 2015 at 11:22 pm

    where can I get those kind of cards? I couldn't find a perfect one so far.

  • Reply Les G. December 4, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    Thank you. I was not sure what side to keep inside or outside. Now I know.

  • Reply Carl Hammill December 6, 2015 at 11:26 am

    we find bone folders don't really give a professional score. You need straight metal edge and compression to deliver desired results.

  • Reply 525Lines December 7, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    You should also run down the folded outer edge of the card with the bone folder to further sharpen that crease.

  • Reply Tattoo3d Cowboy December 21, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    what I find best is instead of a bone folder, use the tips of an rca cable (the yellow, white red cables to plug into TVs, dvds etc). The little metal tips make perfect creases and do not tear or smudge the cardstock even if its already pre printed.

    Thank you for sharing! This method will help much.

    Hi! I was wondering if it would be the same process if you were folding, say, 10 pages at once? To make something like a small pamphlet? Thanks for the video by the way!

  • Reply Nancy Edelstein May 8, 2017 at 2:37 am

    do you fold the already scored paper away from the score, or into it?

    with the heavier down you gotta bone down hard

    I could see a "thumbs down" for a stupid video about road rage or something, but what is there to "thumbs down" about this? Lol! I'm sending a "thumbs up" just to spite those weirdos.

    use a glass cutter. has a metal wheel that wont push around ink like a bone folder
