    First, this is great! Got my prints done and about to get started.

    Second, regarding the scoring of fold lines, do you score the outside or inside of the fold?

      To be honest, I don’t care much about the fold direction when scoring, I simply score everything from the same side, namely the printed one, because it’s easier to make out the lines that way. Never had any problems with that.

    I just found your website and had to commend you for making these great game aids available. been using the micro hangars for while and couldn’t be happier. Can’t wait to make the special card holder boxes for game play. Well done and thank you!

    On one of the forums you linked the punches you used for the circle portions. Could you add that to the how do I cut this section?

    The boxes are great. Now I really want something similar for Star Trek Attack Wing and DnD ATTACK Wing but dread designing myself.
