Here is a very simple but priceless tip: How many times have you had that one perfectly coordinated piece of paper only to miss cut it and render it useless because of all of the tiny little lines on your straight cutter? It used to happen to me pretty often. Those darned rule lines can be hard to see sometimes. I find myself using a pretty standard set of measurements for most of my cards, so I came up with a simple solution. I marked the cut sizes I use most often along the forward edge of my alignment ruler. Now instead of trying to find 5 3/4” I just look for the red B, 5 3/8” red C, 2 13/16” black B and so on. Don’t want to mark on your cutter? Lay a piece of tape down first!
A simple solution for a very frustrating problem. If this tip helps you…please post a comment! Thanks! True
