Nasco has "Soft-Cut" , really great stuff, but not an accepted material for
Speedball contests. They insist on Linolium block. ( Hate it) Too many

Really?! Could they tell the difference if you used softcut instead of lino
block? After using softcut, I wouldn't WANT to use anything else. Can't
understand why it would make a diff. to them as it's the SAME technique and
you can do really fine work with it and the product looks the same to me. I
think I'll probably never go back to lino ever again. I teach mid. school
and besides the pitfalls of lino and cutters, there is the time element.
Softcut is way faster. Toodles.....Bunki
