Strip-cut, cross-cut and Shred size
When inquiring about vendors capabilities an important item to consider in your final selection is the size that your document will be shredded down to. There are many different sizes and every vendors capability is different from the other vendor. One vendor may only do a “Strip-cut” and another a “Confetti-cut” or also known as “Cross-cut” and the size of each may vary. Documents that are shredded to a “Strip-Cut” are very easy to piece together the information where as a Confetti-cut or Cross-cut will be shredded into a variety of different sizes which is more difficult to piece together the information. Ask your vendor for the dimension that they will shred your documents as well a sample and compare that sample to the material that has been shredded for your project. It should be identical in size to your sample or the dimension that they indicated. If you received a Cross-cut sample from your representative and your shredded material resembles a Strip-Cut, then you have not received the higher level of secure shredding. Size matters and is it is important to compare apples to apples. Learn more >
