Having trouble cutting your images out with your Brother ScanNCut? It may be your settings. I am listing the settings that I personally use with my favorite cardstocks in my Brother ScanNCut2 machine.
My favorite cardstock by far is Gina K Designs 120lb Pure Luxury as well as her “layering weight” cardstock which is 80lb. Although that is the only cardstock I buy and use now, I still have TONS of cardstock left over from other companies so I’ll list those as well.
If you have a cardstock that you prefer that is not listed, please leave a comment and let me know which settings you use on which cardstock/papers, and I’ll be happy to add them to this list.
*Please note* Some people use different settings than what I use. I’m not sure why but results may vary so do a test cut before you cut your images out just to make sure these settings work for you. 🙂 If you would like a short tutorial showing how to do a test cut, leave a comment and let me know.
You might notice the change in this guide image. I used to use my machine on pressure setting 9, however I was told it could dull the blade and I wrote to Brother and asked them if it would indeed dull the blade. This was their response: So as a precaution, I changed my settings to 0 instead of 9!
Having trouble cutting? Try this:
Look into the end of the blade to make sure there are no paper particles stuck in there.
Next, use a can of compressed air to spray it clean.
If that doesn’t work, take the blade apart as if you were changing it just to double check there is nothing stuck in there.
Finally if you need a new blade, you can get one here.
I hope these tips help. If there is something you want to know that I haven’t covered on my blog, please leave a comment or use my contact page to contact me and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
