Default Scor-It vs. ScorPal line appearance

I am still torn about which of these to get. I have seen a close-up photo of the Scor-It score line, and it looks so clean and sharp. I can't find any close-up photos of the ScorPal line. Does it look the same as Scor-It's line? Or does it look just like the line from my teflon bone folder?

Thanks! By the way, neither of these are sold locally so I will have to order and can't compare them in a shop myself!

I have both but I really prefer the Scor-Pal over the Scor-it. I seem to tear my paper a lot with the Scor-it. And the Scor-Pal is cheaper!

I love the scor-it measurement guide (really easy) but hate the scoring tool. I think mine's defective. I have a hard time scoring, I think the wood part near the slit is *blunt* so it doesn't align with the metal on the center. The scor-pal's measurements leave me ??? - let's just say I have a really hard time with the measuring part but the scoring is great. Did I make sense?

Thank you for your input! I like the price of the ScorPal better, and ease of use is important. The photo of the Scor-It line is tempting, but I think I will hold out until I can try one myself!

I bought the scor pal because it was cheaper and I really didn't think I needed it anyhow!! I do get a good score,but like the other poster I have a problem with the measurement guide!!(I am math challenged!!!). I took a sharpie and went over the raised notches for the measurements and now I can see them better.....

I honestly get as nice of a score with the black attachment to the Fiskars cutter as I do with a scor-it or scor pal.

I also found that the wooden scoring tool sometimes gets "off the track" if I am not concentrating on keeping it just so. Could just be me though, I am not all that handy.

I just bought my Scor-It last night and I'm very excited about getting to use it. The only thing I notice is that you have to keep the scoring tool perfectly perpendicular so that it stays on track. Other than that, it's a great tool.

Thanks, CroppinJen! I love the look of the line it makes that I saw in a photo on Ellen Hutson's site. I don't have to do all that much scoring as I almost exclusively make cards, but I loved that professional looking score!

I had some difficulty at first with the Scor-It coming off the metal track while I was scoring cardstock. The site and directions suggest putting a tiny bit of petroleum jelly on the tip, but I thought that sounded too messy. Instead, I took a sheet of wax paper and scored it several times with the tool, moving the paper over with each new score. The tool now glides over the paper so much smoother and my hand hasn't fallen off the scoring track since.

I'm really glad I bought it now. The zero-center ruler is very handy. I've never tried the ScorPal, so can't comment as to how it works.

I just purchased one of the new mini Scor-it and so far I think I am going to really love it.

Where did you get it? I saw the neatest one on an English site but I have not seen one around these parts. I'm from Missouri.

The Score-Pal has been redesigned and now has very easy to read measurement guides. The older model is no longer available, so if you order now, you'll get the new one.
Mine came yesterday, and it's very easy to use. The thing that tickled me about it is the self storage for the scoring tool. You press a lever and it pops right out. (I know! It doesn't take much to amuse me! LOL!)

I got my Score-Pal last week and so far I am loving it!

The big difference between the Score-It and the Score-Pal is that with the Score-Pal you can make multiple score lines without moving the cardstock! I didn't think the Score-It would be much of an improvement over the scoring blade on my Fiskars, but the Score-Pal definitely IS. Also, I don't have to measure paper when I put it in to find the spot I need to put the left edge of the cardstock. Instead I plop my cardstock in the Scorepal and find the mark where I need to score...it doesn't sound like much, but really it makes it easier to score, even a standard card with the score at 4.25".

I have had my scor-pal for about a week and love it! I love that you can make multiple scores without moving the cardstock, I was concerned that the tool wouldn't stay in the track to score the cardstock without a guide on the top, but I have had no problem at all. It is a super tool, which came VERY quickly after ordering, which I consider a huge bonus!

I've owned both, and as soon as I used a Scor-Pal, the Scor-it was on the sale block! I LOVE my Scor-Pal and use it all the time.

My Scor-Pal arrived yesterday, and after reading the directions I decided to try doing a Nugget Box as a test. It worked great! Even my hubby was impressed with the difference between the "before" and "after" nugget boxes I showed him for comparison. I also bought the extra scoring tool, 1/4 inch sticky tape (great deal), the fine-point tweezers and the glitter magnet cloth, all fantastic paper-crafting products! Doing the Scor-Pal happy dance here!

I LUV my scor pal . I to have the fiskar scoring blade.What a pain to have to take it in or out or else move it up or down out of the way. Either way it is a pain for me. Now scor pal is set up on crafting table and it is ready to go. I just can not speak highly enough about this product. I would have liked to have added it my wish list. But could not wait until then thats like 70 days away tooooo long for me. I already had the old model, but being a lefty Diana made it more user friendly..... Just got my new one today and tried it out!!!

The only thing I don't really like about the scor-it is the weight! It's super heavy, but i'm inclined to buy that new mini scor-it. I'm still thinking about it. I don't know anything about the scor-pal except that it's a good price. I guess it's all just a matter of preference.

I have both and have noticed no difference in terms of the quality of the score, but the Scor-Pal has all the gridlines which makes it SO easy to use!

Well, I can't speak highly enough about my Score-Pal. I totally LOVE it! I've seen a sample of the Score-It's score lines, and I honestly don't see a difference.

The Score-Pal is SO lightweight, though, and it has the gridlines practically anywhere you'd want to put them! I wouldn't trade mine ever!

Absolutely love my Score-Pal!! I took quite awhile trying to decide which one I should buy and went with the S-Pal and do not regret it!! I cann't believe how fast I can do a plie of cards now and have a great score line. Wish I could justify buying the new model with larger numbers, but I'll manage with the one I have.

I don't have to decide between the two because the Scor-it is $85 over here, so there is no way I can justify that cost just to do a few lines. My bone scorer and metal ruler works just fine for me

Default Score it vs score pal

I received a Score it from my wonderful boyfriend last Xmas, I love it and use it all the time. Yes it is heavy and it has permanent place in my newly redesigned craft room (many thanks to my wonderful boyfriend), but I can cut and score tons of cards in just minutes. If I were going to a crop, workshop, etc. I would use the Fiskars scoring blade. I've never had any problem with the tool falling off of the blade or tearing the paper. As my WBF is graphic designer, he's always interested in the latest crafting gagets and often checks out what he is giving me first!
