A few years ago I bought a box of thin scrapbooking paper from Costco. Very bright designs (not the nicest actually but some are ok). I no longer have the packaging so I don't know the name of the company. I have tried every combination of settings on my Expression and it either tears terribly or doesn't cut through. Any suggestions? Are some papers just impossible to cut?

I got these settings off some blog & they always work for me. I spend a lot of time reading several MB's & have never read of any paper being impossible to cut...


Dial Settings (blade, speed, pressure)


Thick Cardstock: 6,2,5
Regular Cardstock: 5,4,5
Patterned Paper: 4,4,4
Transparency: 6,3,4
Chipboard: 6,3,5 (cut 2 X)
Vinyl: 6,3,3
Vellum: 4,3,4

I have some thin "double sided" CS I got at Costco & I have had no trouble cutting it.

HTH!

You could try doing it on the setting that doesn't cut all the way through and use the multi cut feature.

I had the same problem with paper from Sam's. It was great paper solid on the back and a simple design on the front. Got so frustrated, then I decided to run some of it thru my Xron...it made it stiffer and therefore easier to cut. Good luck!
