- Ground-breaking Design: Unlike rotary scorers that can leave a cracked finish on some stocks, the channel score produced by the DocuCrease provides a clean, sharp score that doesn't damage the printed image. That's because the creasing action is achieved by embedding the fibers --- across the length of the document --- between a dye and an anvil?all in one action into the stock surface. The result is a superb crease without damage.
- Simple Operation: The DocuCrease contains a clearly marked table with an indicator scale for easy and accurate positioning of the creases. Two adjustable backstops allow for two creases in one pass on the same piece, or for easy set-up of multiple creasing jobs. And it is "ergonomically correct", making it easy to use for either right or left handed operation.
- The DocuCrease is great for adding creases to: Glossy cover stocks with the grain going in the wrong direction, Ink or toner-based stocks, Pamphlets/brochures, Greeting cards, and Covers used for booklets or perfect bound books
- Versatile: Available in two models, the DocuCrease channel scores up to 14" in length on the smaller unit, the DC35, and up to 20.5" in length on the larger unit, the DC52. Both models are ideal for a wide assortment of printed materials. Additional backstops can be added to either unit to increase the number of preset crease positions per pass that you can get from using the two standard backstops.
- Adjustable Backstops: Two standard adjustable stops allow for two preset creases in one pass. And they couldn't be easier to adjust: just lift and slide along measured table.
- AutoCreaser: For higher-volume creasing, step up to the Standard Morgan AutoCreaser, a fully automated suction feed scorer.

Standard Morgana DocuCrease 52 Manual Creaser Review
A creaser can make it easy to fold a number of different paper types for all of your creative and professional projects. One of the better ones is the Standard Morgana DocuCrease 52. Here's what makes it worth a look as well as how it rates on a 1-to-10 scale.
The DocuCrease 52 is a manual creaser that can work with paper that's up with 20.5" long. You can use this device to process letter- and legal-sized paper as well as larger sheets. Also, this device works with stocks of varying weights including 12 point cover stock. It can even be used with laminated documents, glossy stock, and items printed on an ink-jet printer.
When you use this creaser, you can create creases that are as short as 1" or as long as 20.5". This makes it ideal for both small and large items. No matter what you crease, you'll get great results without ending up with cracks in your materials.
This is a fantastic scorer to use for a variety of projects. Some of the things you can process with this device include newsletters, greeting cards and other craft projects, and so on. You can even use it to prepare covers for use with a perfect binding machine.
The DocuCrease 52 has not one but two adjustable backstops. The backstops' positions can be easily adjusted and will allow you to crease your paper repeatedly. If necessary, you can even add more backstops.
This device has both metric and standard measurements printed on the base for easy reference. It even has an ergonomically friendly handle that's great for both right- and left-handed users. Overall, the device is really easy to use even for beginners.
One thing you'll want to keep in mind about the DocuCrease 52 is that it's more suited for short-run jobs rather than long ones. That's because it's a manual device and thus, it can't process as much as an automated machine.
Since this device can work with paper that's up to 20.5" long, it almost goes without saying that it's a pretty large product. Its dimensions are 29.5" (length) x 21.75" (width) x 5" (height) so you'll need a rather large surface for it.
Standard has given this product their typical one-year warranty. (Please note that the warranty doesn't extend to the crease's wearable parts.)
Final rating: 9. The Standard Morgana DocuCrease 52 would be an excellent choice if you're looking for a manual scorer. This product is compatible with a lot of different sizes and weights of paper, so it's great for a wide variety of projects. It can even crease laminated documents which can be incredibly helpful. The two backstops will come in handy when you're doing a series of repeated creases. Also, you'll find that this crease is really easy to use and that it can help you out immensely. Overall, the DocuCrease 52 is a first-rate scorer, so take a look at it today.
