URGENT HELP REQUIRED FOR EMBOSSING WEDDING INVITATIONS
My friend has asked me to emboss her wedding invitations. This is a budget wedding taking place April 15/17. She had her nephew print the invitation on the cardstock and then wants me to emboss the other end making it a 4.25 by 5.50 card.
Has anyone ever used an embossing folder to make 80 cards at one time? I only make a couple of cards at a time so it doesn't matter which way I run the folder through. I vaguely recall reading that you should put the folded side through first but I don't remember why. Since the folder needs to be on one end of the card when I put it through my machine running the folded end through first is not an option. I have a Grand Calibur. Can I make all 80 cards in one shot or should I just run the folder through making the cards in lots of maybe 10 at a time? My concern is damaging the folder before the project is finished!
All help/advice today would be kindly appreciated.
I am sorry if I am posting this in the wrong thread but I really do need Urgent help!
The summary appears to be the hinge will wear out first, you can tape it back together if that happens, but you should get away with making 80 cards....but read the rest of the thread because it is interesting.

we did 250 embossed thank you cards. no the folder wont wear out. we used the long base plate and cutting pads and had two folders so were able to run thru two at the same time, but it was a fun project a sister of the bride and brides mother helped. we had fun doing it.
