The back of the paper is scored, creating an indentation—the score is elevated on the front. You score paper by pressing the tip of a knife or other pointed object against the paper and moving it across the page in a straight line, making shallow dents in the surface. The object that you use to score the paper is called a scoring tool.
The purpose of scoring paper is to make folding it easier. When you fold paper with indents in the surface, the edges of those shapes help hold the page together. As you can see in the image below, scoring also creates more space within the paper when you roll it up later. That makes it easier to wrap things like letters or packages without breaking the wrapping process down into smaller steps.
Paper scores easily. Use a sharp knife to make deep cuts. Then press the tip of the knife into the paper to create the indentations.
You should score all the paper you plan to fold, even if you're only planning on folding one sheet. Once you start folding, you may want to keep going!
Score one side only of each piece of paper. Crop photos, remove stickers, etc.. Before scoring any material that will be mailed.
How to Fold Scored Paper Correctly A score line or channel line divides a card into two different sides. On one side, there is a recess or depression, while on the other, there is a bump or elevation. The correct method is to fold into the elevated side. When cards are folded correctly, they have a cleaner, more equal fold with less possibility of shattering.
Place the printed side face up, with the leading edge (top) of the paper in first. To print on the second side, place the paper face down with the leading edge (top) facing up. If using letterhead paper, insert it with the heading facing down and first. Then use a pencil to mark a diagonal line from corner to corner on each page. On one side only, fold along the lines until you reach the back side where you can unfold them.
This method is easier than flipping it over manually and works well for printing multiple copies on both sides of the paper.
If you don't want to use pencil or pen, then simply mark the diagonal line on one side only and turn the paper over when reaching the other side.
This method is easy to remember and does not require any additional equipment.
It may be helpful to refer to a print instruction sheet available from most companies that provide this service. These sheets usually have the opposite direction written in big letters at the top of the page to help you print single-sided and double-sided papers.
They are also helpful to note which paper type requires what orientation when printing from computer files.
Companies that provide this service often charge by the page or by the number of copies required. They may even have special rates for college students or those who work for them.

A score is typically composed of musical notation, with each instrumental or vocal component aligned vertically (meaning that concurrent events in the notation for each part are orthographically arranged). Sheet music produced for only one performer has sometimes been referred to as a "score." However, this usage is now rare.
Sheet music produced for multiple performers is called an "orchestration." The word comes from the Greek organistrum, which means "instrument used to play in accompaniment of dancing" and refers to the fact that such music was often played at social gatherings. Early examples of orchestral music date back to the 16th century. By the 18th century, several terms were used to describe this type of music: "symphony," "sonata," "partita," and "march." Today, these terms are mostly applied to individual pieces rather than to entire compositions.
Scores and Orchestrations may include graphic symbols and markings on the page as well as notes written out explicitly. These include bar lines, time signatures, and other indications of rhythmic structure. Textual marks include cues, directions, reminders, and any other information that does not fit naturally into the music itself but might be helpful to someone performing or listening to the music.
The term "score" also applies to the document that contains all the information necessary to perform or record an arrangement or composition.
