How to Score Pages with Your Bone Folder

When doing a bookbinding project that requires book signatures (such as a case binding project), you would often need to score the pages. This is done to ensure a nice fold which can be easily marked and stitched. We often use a bone folder (aka bone scorer) to score the pages. Alternatively, you can use a ruler or anything with a flat edge.
