Default How to cut the Clay from a Hemmets panel?

So I have a full panel graded VG. It's hard to tell, but I think the Clay is in nicer condition than the panel as a whole (a crease elsewhere could explain the grade) and I thought maybe I should try to cut the Clay and submit it individually as there seems to be some potential upside and not much downside to doing that. But it looks to be a delicate daunting task with very little margin for error if any. Does anyone have any suggestions? I am not sure a printer is the right answer, the one time I took something there they didn't do a very good job. Thanks.

He is awesome at cutting cards. I saw one he recently cut and it looked great. I would contact him or perhaps he will see this thread.

Printers do not have the equipment to cut a random single piece.

Go to a person that does framing and matting. They have the proper tools. Now if you can get one to do it is another question.

Thanks for the compliment, what is funny is that I think he is referencing an item that I made an offer on yesterday.... :-)

Good luck!

Correct. And I told you that I was rethinking selling it outright because I wanted to look into whether I should cut the single. I'll probably end up just selling it unless I can find someone to partner with because I don't want to cut it myself.

Yes, not too long ago we discussed your PSA 5 as I recall.

Thanks Rob I appreciate that. Obviously I'm hoping to entice someone to go higher than that but I won't give it too long.
