I purchased the Martha Stewart Scoring Board and couldn't be happier with it. There are three items - a scoring tool which resembles a bone folder but with a sharper edge that can be used as a cutter with a little extra force. Be careful not to press too hard when scoring paper or you will cut it!
There is an envelope guide which I have not used yet but it looks cool. And also the board itself. The board is clearly numbered in 1/4 inch increments and scoring is a breeze. I even scored some laminated paper with good results. The board can also be used to edge up a ruler for marking straight lines and measuring on paper etc. A pleasant surprise for me.
I say "Buy this board!!!"
I never thought that I would need this until I wanted to make a tri fold card and tried to do it on my personal cutter using the scoring blade that it came with and thumbs down!
Then I started looking into getting a scoring board and I saw this but thought maybe it was too much. I looked around and was about to purchase another cheaper version and my computer crashed. The next day I googled scoring boards and came to a ladies blog who compared scoring boards and rated this one the one to get. So I got it and I love all the extras packed into it!
This is an AWESOME scoring board. I had purchased a different one that is difficult to use-I guess I can't figure out the instructions to use it! So I purchased this one and it is much easier to use--no confusing directions to mess with your head!
I'm thinking of getting another one, so I won't have to take it from one room to the next--or for a spare in case something happens to the first!
The product is great... it's Martha Stewart = would expect no less. PROBLEM... is it was shipped - loosely packed and lucky to have not been broken! NO reflection on the product.... just saying --- REVIEWS should not be ONLY about the product! I am recent 'newbbie' to Scrapbook.com - previous orders have been secured and protected much better. I will hope 'someone' just had an "off" day and luckily only the box was damaged and not the product. DO NOT BE STINGY with those little 'air bubble' packing aids....... THEY DO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE. Will be watching to see if this pattern continues..... or packaging ensures good product arrives safely. TY
I have used this board a lot. This is my 2nd board and I love it. I have recommended this to several of my friends and they are all using this board now.
The only thing I was disappointed with, was the length of time it took to receive my purchases. I live only an hour from Mesa and it took almost a week to have my purchases delivered. I went to the warehouse to see if I could just pick them up, but there was no way to gain entrance. I knocked on the door as I saw a lady going up and down the aisles with a cart, but no one took any notice. I think your delivery and/or pick up system could be much improved.
