    Thanks in advance. I have a creation I'm going to cut. Consists of 3 colors (see pic). I know how to separate them to send to the cutter. I think my question is, do I cut the yellow, the red, and the black, then put them on top of each other? If not how do I cut them so they fit inside each other? Does that make sense? Sorry for the dumb question? As a newbie I am progressing quite nicely, thank you. Just get stuck on occasion. By the way, really digging this.

    The yella' contour part is a little big for my liking, but if that's what you wanted to achieve you did it! It just takes time...

    The more you do the better you will get. I think that looks great. You probably notice that your brown layer is not where you were planning but no one else will except us over critical fanatics. Do you understand registration marks? Most programs will add them for you or you can add your own. Basically a set of points around or in line with the design in each color all stacked up so as you place each layer you align the marks and the design will be aligned. I generally make a diamond or something and place a few around the design then copy and paste them in place again for each color layer so when you cut by color they are all in the same spot. I usually install with them included then peel them off the window or substrate. There are also videos of multi-layered work done on the workbench prior to install and then just one time on the final substrate. Depending on the job that's often a good way to go. I have a design for my day job that has very critical alignment or it looks bad and I generally stack them at home so I only have to worry about getting them straight on the truck and not fight the curve or doors making things go awry.

    A big thank you from USCutter and VinylMaster to everyone who attended the USCutter Expo on November 9 and 10 in Memphis. We all enjoyed ourselves and everyone went away with a big smile!

    For general sign vinyl you would typically build it so that each layer is solid and install the yellow followed by the orange then topped by the black/brown top layer. You don't want any "inner" holes to try and match up with they will just give you trouble. Getting perfect registration on all the layers takes some practice and will be made a little harder with budget cutters due to their lack of pristine accuracy but this design looks like it will lend itself to a little inaccuracy without looking off. Some designs with HTV vinyl applied by heat press might be done in a different order but not this one.
