.918 for cutting. 912 for scoring with matrix

Thank you very much Ted.

.918 is what most on this forum use it keeps the adjustment from print to cut at a minimum However .937 is the most common die cutting rule height in the industry. I suggest you get first die made with .918 cut rule.

Hi Ted 918 cut and 912 crease on a cut and crease die is okay for .005 stock like a bond or are you referring to separate operations? I make a lot of greeting card, folding carton and presentation folder dies and for 10-12 pt cover 918cut and 900 vrease is most common.
