Scoring & Creasing

Twin Loop will advise the best way to score or crease your digitally printed material for an attractive and long-lasting finish.

 

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, there is a difference in scoring and creasing processes.

Many folding projects are vulnerable to cracking or splitting of the sheet. Unfortunately, the most beautifully designed and printed brochure can be ruined instantly if the wrong folding technique is chosen.

Scoring creates a single stress point for the paper to fold. A score is a term given to the process of cutting stock partway through to facilitate an easy fold.  This is also called ‘top cutting’.  Scoring is a trendy and economical option for printed items that will not be handled regularly or intended for short-term use.

Creasing is a process that prepares the paper for bending by creating two parallel folding points, which minimise stress on the paper. Rather than ‘cutting’ into the stock, creasing creates a ‘dent’ along the length of the desired fold (for example, Half Canadian covers).  Creating a ‘paperboard hinge’ reduces or removes the likelihood of print work and stock cracking or breaking at the fold point.

Benefits

Often the document design determines the fold style selected; however, Twin Loop will guide you to make the better decision for your folded item to ensure a sturdy, professional finish.
