Creaser / Folder?

    I have had a Morgana Autocrease 35 and looking to upgrade to a creaser/ folder.

    I am looking at the Morgana Digi Fold Pro and the Duplo Foldmaster.

    I would love to hear the good and the bad.  We have issues with creaser lighter papers under 100# text on the Morgana Autocrease 35.

    Shawn, we have had a Digifold Pro for around 5 years and I think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. If you do a lot of text weight folding on it, I would suggest you spring for the third score die, I believe they call it the "ultra", it is a narrower score made for light stock. We have had a few issues pop up at the 5 year mark that our service tech has said seem to be common to all the machines but they weren't to expensive to fix, since then we had no more issues. Our tech did mention something about changes made by the company that builds them as far as tech support within the US. Apparently all tech support now comes out of England so you have a big time difference. Overall, it's a great machine, we use it pretty much every day.
    As far as the Duplo, we have a lot of Duplo equipment and it all works well. We have no experience with any of the Duplo score/slit/fold machines but I would guess it's a quality product also.
