Excerpt from How to Make Cutouts: A Handbook of Practical Methods of Cutting and Creasing for Advertising Novelties, Paper Boxes, on Platen, Cylinder and Rotary Presses
While it is possible for the printer to do all kinds of cutting and creasing on ordinary printing presses of the Colt’s Armory and Hartford type, yet if it is his intention to go in for cutting and creasing exten sively, it is advisable for him to have regular cutting and creasing presses put in. To produce this class of work under the best mechanical conditions, it would be well for the printer also to have installed a special steel-rule - bending machine, a special steel-rule-cutting device, and a jig saw. With these machines, along with special furniture racks, and a large work table, the printer, or any other skilled craftsman, would have a complete cutting and creasing plant.
