When cards are packaged, they are surrounded by the pre-printed booster pack art foil that is then heat sealed around the proper quantity of cards to become a pack. Sometimes, this process can go wrong, and a card or cards can slip forward or backward and come in between the crimper’s heat-sealing mechanism.

When this happens, the intricate design of the crimping machine is imparted into the card. If only a portion of the crimp is seen on the card, it will earn the Partial Crimp designation. When the entire Crimp can be seen, the card is simply called Crimped. Lastly, the crimping machine can sometimes even cut a piece off the card. When this happens, CGC Trading Cards labels it Crimped & Cut
