I have both the mini (a gift from a good friend who found it as an early release) and full
size Scor-it. I made over 350 wedding invites on the full size SI that were heavy felt
paper that had been die cut and partially scored by the paper company. The SI was the
only tool that made good scores without cracking the paper and were also the same depth
as the commercial score.
My experience with scoring tools that push paper down into a groove have not been bad,
but the scores just are not deep enough to make a hinge that won't crack on heavy and/or
textured papers (especially the "Stack" paper brand from DCWV that has a white core.)
The SI also makes really nice embossed designs of windows, diamonds, and lines that
make some great looking cards.
The new mini is really good for A2 cards as it is much easier to fit in that last few square
inches we stampers leave ourselves as a workspace! Seriously though, the new mini is just
right for A2 cards (and smaller) --- they line up fast on the centering ruler and it fits in
my class bag much easier than the full size SI.
The only drawback to the SI in either size is that I have big hands and the scoring tool is
just a bit short so when scoring hundreds of cards the end would dig into my palm. As a
fix, I wrapped the non-grooved end with the soft side of self stick velcro. I keep the tool
attached to the SI with velcro dots rather than the chain it comes with. The new mini has a
recessed back side which provides a nice place to attach the score tool.
I don't work for the company or a store. I just like the results the Scor It provides.

but I kept reaching for my full size scor-it because I kept "running off the end of the
page"... I just got the scor pal and find it easier than the scor-it to use. You score "down
into a groove" instead of trying to stay on top of the metal scoring edge with the tool. Just
my opinion. If someone near you has both.. try them out before you buy.
