Scoring/ Perforation

Thicker card stock normally cracks when folded. In order to give a professional look it needs to score. Scoring does not damage the ink or paper but it leaves a creased impression on paper, this can be done through a machine only. Scoring makes an easy and accurate fold. Scoring is generally composed of straight lines (in one direction only)

A business reply sheet, with a reply card, generally has perforation (dotted lines) on a sheet. Thin needles within our machine penetrate the stock paper or card enabling them to be tear out cards easily for mailing. Perforation can be used on all kinds of mailings, forms, tickets and reply cards. Some prefer to print dotted lines with a scissor icon, which is easy way to save money. However, when asking for just dotted lines the product must be cut by hand.
