2848: Can the LED strip be cut lengthwise

I realize that the neopixel strips can be cut at the recommended "cut joints" along the strip. But if we desired to make the strip narrower, could we also cut along the sides? Is this a multi-layer board? Thanks, in advance.

No. The power and ground traces run up the sides of the strip. Trimming those would cut off or seriously restrict power to pixels down the strip.
