hand cut help
needing to hand cut cards for the first time -- read several threads, bought mat, exacto knife, metal ruler, and set to work. have about two dozen examples of what i'm extracting. after four very poor to poor efforts, i got my eye in, and have two that look ok, with straight edges and clean corners.
i'm wondering if i'm doing this all wrong -- i'm about to buy an $80-$100 x-acto paper cutter (guillotine, as i've seen it called here)
i have newfound respect for all the old-timers who've done this and done it well.
i'm happy to hear / looking for any advice on the best way to extract a 'hand-cut' card, before i touch another one in my stack.
