Q: My die cutting machine plates are warped and is causing my dies to warp.  Is that a problem?

Q: Sometimes when I use my paper trimmer I still manage to cut crooked.  How can I make sure that doesn’t happen?

A: Often it’s just a matter of making sure the paper is correctly lined up in the trimmer.  One easy way to make the perfect cut is to use a scoring board and score a small line at the top and bottom of your paper at the inch mark you will be cutting.  Place the paper in your trimmer, lining up the score marks in the blade groove and your good to go.  No more crooked cuts!
