Somewhat Comprehensive Testing of Settings for Cutting Paper and Cardstock

No worse than “medium” or “thick” PG materials… :smiley:


I’m happy that medium and thick don’t claim to be exact - because they know they’re not - something like Xlb paper makes it sounds like someone did some actual measuring :-/

Except, they provide “exact” settings.

I have tried so many different tests and by far your results are the best.! Thank you. That is so helpful to all of us here on GF.


Thank you so much for creating this. Saved me a lot of brain cells. :rofl:

Hello…was wondering if anyone figured out how to prevent the burn flash when cutting paper? I am trying to cut 65lb card stock and getting the burn flash. I tried some of the setting above and still getting flash marks.

@Vicki… wow this come out really nice. I don’t see and burn/flash marks. What settings did you use? My card stock is 65lb.

@danielhertz. Did it cut all the way…or did you have to do another cut pass?

I found this to be beyond helpful!!! Thank you so much for posting. Greatly Appreciated.
