The slightly textured scoring surface is 12" x 12", with a raised fence at the top (ruler markings) and on the left and right side. This aligns your paper for perfect scoring. No more crooked cards! Grooves are across the board at every half inch and there are specialty grooves at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8" for gate fold cards, at 4 1/4" for normal A2 cards, and at 3.666" and 7.333" for brochure folding (divides 11" paper into equal thirds).
When you place your card stock on the scoring surface, you are able to do multiple scores without moving the paper. Grid cards, accordion folds, boxes, etc. are scored in seconds. The score lines result in crisp, accurate folds! At the 0 to 1" mark and 11" to 12" mark there are 1/8" markings. By proper paper placement this will allow you to score odd measurements such as 1 7/8" The included scoring tool snaps into place at the top of the unit and is always at hand. It has been specially designed to fit the grooves so the card stock can not be torn while scoring.
The Scor-Tool is engineered to fit the grooves on the Scor-Pal scoring tablet. It fits into the snap-in storage area at the top right of the scoring tablet so no more searching for your scoring tool. The tool will *not* leave a shiny mark on your cardstock.
The translucent Scor-Mat fits exactly in the recessed area of your Scor-Pal. It is almost 12" x 12". On one side is a self-healing cutting mat with 1/8" increments in white and inch markings in black. These are perfect for aligning layers on cards. The other side is a shiny work surface perfect for stamping. Ink can be cleaned off. It has slight static so paper stays in place. After scoring, no need to put your Scor-Pal away, you can work on top of your Scor-Mat and have an instant work place. When you need to score a diagonal longer than 12 " you can align the mat with the bottom of the Scor-Pal and you will now be sure you have the opposite points are squared. Do *not *use a heat gun on the Scor-Mat.
Scor-Tape is an amazing product. It is a premium double sided adhesive, best on the market today, acid free, heat resistant and incredibly sticky. It can be used with embossing powders, foils, beads, glitter, ribbon etc. It is the perfect permanent adhesive for card making, boxes, books and Iris Folding. It is available in 1/8", 1/4", 1/2", 1 1/2", 2" & 2 1/2" sizes. See also our new 6" x 6" sheets which are perfect for making die cuts which you can then glitter or emboss.
This is a rotary piercer that runs perfectly up the groove of the Scor-Pal. Position a piece of cardstock on the Scor-Pal surface. Using firm pressure run the tool up the groove and over the cardstock. The result, a perfectly straight row of piercing. Turn the cardstock over and you have a row of pearl like little bumps. A Lattice Grid using the embossed side is beautiful and adds great texture to your card.
Scor-Pal is a scoring tool for paper measuring up to 12" x 12". It has scoring grooves at every 1/2" along with a few other card specific grooves like the 4 1/4" mark. It is lightweight and comes with scoring tool that has its own built-in storage place on the board. Scor-Mat is a two sided mat that fits perfectly in between the raised edges of the Scor-Pal. One side is a self-healing mat for cutting, the other side is a smooth surface for stamping. Scor-Tape comes in different widths and is strong, double-sided adhesive that is easily torn (no cutting required).
Scor-Pal in Action
From Skeptic to Believer
By Charmaine Ikach
When I first heard and read about the Scor-Pal scoring tool, I have to admit I was skeptical. I have always used the scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score things, so I couldn't imagine buying another tool for something I could already do with supplies I had on hand. That's what I thought before I actually owned a Scor-Pal!
One of the first things that made me so happy that I had purchased this item was the fact that I NEVER had to move the paper to score multiple lines. When I would use my scoring blade on my paper trimmer to score paper for 3D items, it seemed that the measurements were never completely accurate. Sometimes the score lines would be a tiny bit off, or worse, crooked. As much as I would line it up with my ruler and keep the paper straight, there were always times when I'd have to cut another piece of cardstock and start over. I have never had to do that with my Scor-Pal. The score lines are always straight and the measurements are always accurate. It’s also perfect for adding score lines as embellishments on your projects. . .something that isn’t as easy with the paper trimmer. Some other features I love about the Scor-Pal are the directions on the back of the box for 5 different types of cards and the handy storage place for the scoring tool. You'll never have to look through all of your drawers to find your bone folder.
The only thing I’m not crazy about with my Scor-Pal is when I have to score where there is no groove. There ARE directions on the back of the box explaining how to accommodate scores where there are no grooves, but I have to think too much, so I’ve never used that feature. This, of course, is just a personal preference kind of thing and I’m sure with more practice I would be more comfortable using that feature.
A great addition to the Scor-Pal is the Scor-Mat. Not only is one side a self-healing cutting mat complete with measurements, but the flip side is a smooth surface perfect for stamping. The best feature of the Scor-Mat is that it fits inside the Scor-Pal. If your workspace is limited, you don’t have to move your Scor-Pal out of the way to stamp your project. Just insert the Scor-Mat into the Scor-Pal and use that as your work surface!
As much as I love my Scor-Pal and Scor-Mat, my favorite product is Scor-Tape. I used to use red line tape for any 3D projects I would make. I’d have to measure how big of a piece I needed and then cut that with my scissors. Scor-Tape eliminates the cutting step. You can rip Scor-Tape with your fingers, making it so easy and convenient to finish 3D projects more quickly. I have honestly started doing more 3D projects since finding Scor-Tape because I don’t have to deal with cutting the red line tape and having the red backing sticking to my fingers all the time. I’m sure that if you give Scor-Tape a try, you’ll never go back to your previous adhesive.
As you can tell, I’m very happy with all of my Scor-Pal products.
Love it! A must have tool!
By Angel Wilde
I absolutely love the Scor-Pal. After stamping for several years, I can't tell you how many little black scoring blades I've lost, or what a pain it was to have to keep switching it out. Before the Scor-pal I would usually have to trim my cards down to make them even on both sides. Scoring right down the middle was nearly an impossible task for me. Not anymore. With the Scor-Pal I score right down the center every time.
I've discovered that making boxes and cards with complicated folds is really so easy with this system. But it isn't just for card folds. Decorative scored lines and designs are where the Scor-Pal really shines!
The Scor-Pal is so easy to use and deceptively light weight. I really appreciate the fact that the tool stores right on board. I highly recommend this tool for every paper crafter!
Staples in my craft room
By Beate Johns
Before I had a Scor-Pal, I really didn't think I needed a scoring tool. I had my Fiskars cutter with scoring blade and was happy with that. Once I tried out the Scor-Pal though, I knew I couldn't be without it.
I love that you can make multiple score lines without moving the paper. Scoring lines for boxes is a matter of seconds now, prepping for multiple cards so easy!
The Scor-Pal is light weight and leans next to my stamping table, always ready to be used. The scoring tool has it's own little place in the scoring base itself, so it doesn't get lost. That's a great feature for me. Everything usually gets lost on my stamping table.
The only thing that is a little difficult is scoring at measurements that don't have a groove in the Scor-Pal. But with a little math and help from the instructions you figure out where to line up your cardstock on a different groove to make it work.
The Scor-Mat fits perfectly in the Scor-Pal. With one side being a cutting mat, the other a smooth surface for a stamping surface....it's the perfect addition to make the Scor-Pal the all around tool for cutting, scoring and stamping!
Another must have Scor-Pal product is their tape. I struggled with the red liner tape since starting to make 3D projects. That liner kept on clinging to me. The Scor-Tape liner does not cling. It's a very strong adhesive that holds any box in place. AND....as if that wasn't enough....you can RIP the tape. No need to cut it. Just tape it down rip the end of. I easy is that!
I would buy the new Scor-Bug for the "cute factor" alone. It's simply adorable. But not it is only that, it is also so handy. You can create paper pierced rows in a snap. It doesn't take longer then making a score. Another must have product from Diana!
I love all my Scor-Pal products and wouldn't want to be without them!
A “Must-Have” Tool for Any Crafter
By Ashley Newell
Having owned a Scor-Pal since last year, I was excited to try out more of their products. I have really enjoyed my Scor-Pal. and I take it with me anywhere I plan to craft. It is very lightweight and mobile. It has become a “must-have” tool for my craft creations.
The Scor-Pal is great for the everyday paper crafter. I use mine each time I make a card to score a line and to create a fold. It is very precise and offers various measurements for any project. If you like to create boxes or envelopes, the Scor-Pal is perfect because you can easily score even lines efficiently using the grid and measurements. To get a good score line, you have to apply pressure depending on the weight of the cardstock. What I like best is that you can always replace your Scor-Tool when it becomes dull or if you misplace it. The Scor-Tool is stored securely in the Scor-Pal where you can always find it.
I have always wanted a Scor-Mat since it came out, so I was excited about testing it out. I used to store my Scor-Pal directly under my craft table for easy access. Now, I can keep it on top of my craft table and place the Scor-Mat in the Scor-Pal and work directly on the surface. One side is perfect for aligning papers, using a craft knife, and also paper piercing. The opposite side worked great for stamping because you can wipe off any excess ink and also remove any sticky residue with ease.
In testing out the Scor-Tapes, I found them to be very user-friendly, and I highly recommend them when working with projects that must be secured tightly. The paper side of the Scor-Tape was easy to remove, which sometimes I find difficult in using double-sided tapes. I really like how they come in various sizes, so you can decide what works best for the project.
Working with the Scor-Bug is really easy when used along with the Scor-Pal. The grooves help you keep a straight line. The versatility of the Scor-Bug is great, allowing you to paper pierce holes or create an interesting embossed dotted line. When coupled with the Scor-Pal, you get perfect results, which for me is a benefit because I’m not too good at creating my own straight lines without a guide.
Overall, Scor-Pal products are user-friendly, versatile, and necessary for any crafter. I’m very happy to use them every day I create.
Beautiful, soft scored lines
By Silke Ledlow
I have the privilege of owning a Scor-Pal a little over a year now. I'm very excited to tell you what I think of this tool.
If you're like me and you like to add a little embossed pizazz to your cards, create boxes or love to create folded cards/projects, you definitely need to own a good scoring tool. I must admit I own a couple different scoring tools, but what I have found out for myself is that I use each and every tool on different projects. My absolute favorite projects I like to use the Scor-Pal. When I create my Grid Cards, dry emboss my cards and make boxes the Scor-Pal doesn't score as deep and leaves softer lines.
Another thing I really like about the Scor-Pal is that I basically just place my paper into the board, and all I need to do is select a groove on where I want my scored line to run. Next I take my little plastic scoring tool and score down the groove which runs from top to bottom. I have a perfect embossed straight line every time. How easy is that? I also liked that the plastic scoring tool is part of the main board and it snaps into the frame for safekeeping.
I must admit when it came to measuring I was a bit confused at first, you have a groove every 1/2" and then some additional grooves with 1/4" increments, but once I worked on a couple of projects it became very clear to me on how to adjust my cardstock to the perfect setting.
Next, I had the pleasure of trying the new Scor-Mat. All I can say I'm so happy to own this awesome mat now - super sturdy quality! Not only does it fit perfectly into the the Scor-Pal, but it also has a gridded and self-healing front. I was able to use my craft knife without worrying that I ruin my desk top again and it doesn't leave the ugly marks like my other cutting mat products.
The front of the Scor-Mat is marked every 1/8". Now I don't have to fiddle around with a ruler anymore, and I was able to finish my project faster. Also, I love the diagonal markings. Even though I have not used them yet, it's so handy to have. I have not had a chance to use the reverse side of the mat yet, but I'm sure I love it too.
The last item I was able to try is the Scor-Tape. I'm not a big fan of glue on my projects, and I'm really not so crazy about the Sticky Strips either - I think they are not flat enough. Well, I found the perfect solution now - the Scor-Tape. It's perfect - flat, the protective cover on top is easy to remove and most of all, it does it's job by holding the project, even the heavier items, together. I love it! Plus, it comes in very convenient sizes. What I also found out by visiting the website is that it's heat resistant, plus I can use with many other products - like beads, embossing powder and my favorite, glitter.
All in all, I'm very happy to be the proud owner of the Scor-Pal, and I know it will always have a permanent place on my desk with my new Scor-Mat inside.
Scor-Pal is YOUR Pal
By Mary Brown
This month we had the opportunity to review the Scor-Pal. Let me begin by saying I've owned the Scor-Pal for a while now and do use it on a regular basis. There's a lot to like about this tool. This tool is EXCELLENT for when making multiple scores in a single piece of cardstock for a project (i.e. a box). It is designed to easily and securely hold a 12 x 12 piece of paper. It is also designed to hold the scoring tool at the top which makes it great so there is less of a chance you will lose it. If you choose to use their scoring tool, you might want to get more then one as it does wear down. I've worn through two and have switched to using my bone folder which I honestly like better with the Scor-Pal especially when scoring acetate. I find that even the 'new' tool did not really score the acetate to the point that it was easy to fold. So don't be afraid to pull out your bone folder and use it with this tool.
Another nice feature of the Scor-Pal is that the grooves are at 1/2" and 1" intervals and at some of the standard lengths such as 2 1/8", 4 1/4". Now this does not mean you can't do 1/4" but you need to be able to figure out how to move your paper to get that to work. For myself, that is not a problem although I have had some customers that doing that kind of 'math' is difficult. It is easy enough to do though - you just have to think it through.
Although I did not have the opportunity to really test out the mat I must say it is such a GREAT idea! One of the problems I have with large accessories is that I have VERY limited room on my desk (and since I have a difficult time always keeping that area neat and clean - LOL - I typically have even less room) I do believe that this makes SO much sense. You can keep your Scor-Pal in your stamping area and then just put the mat in the Scor-Pal with one side up when you want to stamp and the other side up when you want to cut. I do think this is a GREAT way to help us better utilize our space.
