      So I realize this might sound like a dumb question to a lot of you
      but I would rather look silly than screw up a bunch of beautifully
      printed material.

      What comes first scoring or cutting your project to size? I guess I
      am just wondering if the pressure of the cutter (mine doesn't adjust)
      would ruin the score.

      Thanks so much!

      On a side note if anyone is interested in sharing a warehouse space
      on the peninsula contact me off list. I found a great space but it is
      too large for just me at this time. I am itching to get out of my
      garage my two little monsters have way to much access to my sanctuary.

        It can be done both ways that you have mentioned. I
        score jobs for customers that run the job 2 up and
        then cut them down after I return the scored job.

        I also have customers that send me the job 1 up
        because their cutter is unreliable and they don't want
        to cut the piece and have a crooked edge from a
        crooked backstop.

        If it were my printed piece, I would score and fold
        after cutting as some corrections can be made when
        scoring.

        I also have some customers that send me blank stock
        and I score it as shells for them. When they need some
        scored stock, it's on the shelf. This is generally on
        a paper that can not be purchased from the paper store
        off the shelf like Die-o-Perf.
