Guide to Common Cutting Sizes


The $5 cutting charge is for the first pack and an additional $2 for multiple packs of the same product (SKU). So, if you need vellum cut to 5" x 7", the cutting cost would be only $5 for 100 sheets or $9 for 300 sheets. We package the paper after cutting for safe shipping.

Please note that we have changed the way the Cutting Service is submitted for your paper. 

Kindly select the paper AND the cutting at the SAME time. If you are selecting multiple packs of the same paper and only having one cut or each cut to a different dimension, please place each pack and the cutting in your cart as one item and add the other uncut pack(s) to your cart separately. If you add the paper to your cart and go back to add the cutting, another pack will be added to your order. Please check that the correct number of packs has been added. 


How to order custom cutting

Example: To have the paper cut to 5 1/4" x 7 1/2", you would select the following

Width 1 5"   Width 2 1/4"
Length 1 7"   Length 2 1/2"

Smallest size possible is 4" X 4"

Multiple Cuts - Same Size

You will receive more than one set if the cut size allows for it. For example, a 5" x 7" cut from 100 sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" paper results in 200 total sheets of 5" x 7". Please follow this chart to see how many sheets can be generated from 1 pack of 100 Sheets. Multiply be the number of packs if multiple packs need to be cut.

Example: Net Total Sheets from 100 Sheets of 8 1/2" x 11" Paper

Greater than 5 1/2" Greater than 4" 100 Sheets
Greater than 5 1/2" 4" 200 Sheets
5 1/2" or Less Greater than 4" 200 Sheets
5 1/2" or Less 4" 400 Sheets

Multiple Cuts - Different Size

To have multiple packs cut to a special size each, select the cut size and add to cart for each cut you would like. Iindicate in the Comments Box (on the Payment page during Checkout) which pack goes to which size. Be sure to add a corresponding pack of paper for each cut added.

If ordering more than one pack of paper and only 1 needs to be cut, please indicate so in the Comments Box.

Additional Notes

Please note that the following guidelines apply for any cutting

  • Tolerance of plus or minus 1/16" on all cutting
  • Same packs (SKU) of paper cut to the same size can be combined for a discount. These packs can cut together for $5 + $2 for additional packs as long as the size is the same on all of them.
  • Only a single size per pack; i.e. a 5" x 5" and a 6" x 4" cut from 1 pack of paper is not allowed.
  • We do not currently have folding or scoring options
  • Once cut, the paper is not returnable. Please order samples beforehand. 8 1/2 x 11 individual sheets can be ordered on the bottom of each product page.
  • The remaining scraps cannot be included with shipment
  • Only full packs can be cut. i.e. we cannot cut only 30 sheets in a 100 sheet pack.
  • Smallest size possible for cutting for either width or length is 4".
  • If your paper will be printed by a print shop, please check to see if they would prefer the paper uncut.
