Paper Scoring Service | Easily Make Your Own Custom Sized Folding Cards

At LCI Paper we stock dozens of standard size bi-fold cards and tri-fold cards and papers to make your own greeting cards, programs, brochures, marketing materials and more. But sometimes you need a pre-made folder that’s more unique, so we offer custom scoring (pre-creasing on cards and papers) too!

Pre-scored folding cards for greeting cards, programs, invitations

Why do I Need to Score Paper Before Folding It?

Scoring (making a crease, or indentation) in paper or cardstock prior to folding it comes in handy for multiple reasons:

  1. A pre-existing crease serves as a folding guideline and makes it easy to cleanly, accurately, and consistently fold your cards or papers every time. This saves time and allows for a polished, professional appearance.
  2. Though lightweight text paper can be folded without cracking along the fold, heavyweight cardstock cannot. Adding a score in the cardstock prevents this cracking in addition to the benefit of super simple, straight folding every time.

Though you can score cards and papers on your own using a scoring tool such as a bone folder or rotary scorer, this is time consuming when it comes to creating hundreds of cards. At LCI Paper, we use an industrial scoring machine to quickly create custom, pre-creased cards and papers for you.

Looking for a custom scored, perforated, and/or cut shape as opposed to just a plain score? Check out our Digital Laser Cutting Service page!
