    I got a vinyl cutter so I could add fine details to my plasma cut metalwork. I've had the vinyl cutter for about a year now and still haven't combined the use of metalwork and vinyl...But a friend of mine is holding a Rib Fest and invited me to come, so I told him I'd make some sort of award like a plaque or something. I originally thought I'd simply cut out a piece of metal in the shape of a rack of ribs and decorate it with vinyl lettering so the winner could hang a plaque on their wall. Then this 30" tall thing happened... Can't wait to eat!

    If I were you, I'd install it dry. There are too many thin strips in that decal and the wet method could cause problems if the glass is wet. Use the hinge method by putting a strip of masking tape on the top edge. Tape it to the window by the masking tape on the top, making sure the decal is positioned where you want it. Lift the decal up from the bottom, start peeling the backing paper off of the top but don't take it all the way off. Fold the backing paper down to the bottom edge , holding the decal off of the window with one hand. Start squeegeeing the decal down from the top with the other hand. As you get closer to where the backing is folded, pull it down some more and squeegee more. Once you have the backing pulled down to a comfortable level you can pull it off the rest of the way and finish squeegieeing the decal.

    Yeah, cutters are not like other electronics where a new/upgrade model comes out every year. There have been guys on the forums using the same cutter for decades.

    This ain't rocket science to create a similar design! Where's peoples' graphics skills? How come if humans are in contact with advanced alien civilization we have gotten dumber?!!!

    I like the 15" rolls because it gives you a little wiggle room for large designs. Shirt designs are usually no bigger than 11" but occasionally I've done some that are right at 12". And I can usually fit other items/designs in the extra space so I rarely waste the extra few inches. Buying by the foot is good for colors/designs you don't plan to use often, but I would get one of the longer rolls for the big colors you'll use. White and Black are good colors for buying a 10 yrd or longer roll. Siser Easyweed is a great all around HTV. Siser also has several more specialized HTVs that are quite good as well.

    we all get snippy from time to time but now and then some friends remind me to be civil when I have an off day. I agree that with 4 years and a shop this is a simple everyday type item that a crafter might not know but we have to remain civil. with that said it shouldn't be long before I fall off the wagon after checking someone else :O

    Here is a screen shot after fixing the perspective. You won't likely find the font for the CHIEF, it's probably custom or so old they didn't have computers back then. You can hand trace this out and get good results. Very few auto trace result look good enough on fonts.

    My daughter is on our towns royal court this year, and does parades during the warmer months. Another towns festival is during October and they have a huge Halloween parade. The visiting royalty and their families usually transform their normal float into some fun theme just for that parade. Our court decided to go with the Toy Story theme. I had a bunch of 4x8 choroplast sheets that the city gave me after an election one time so I donated them to the float. We painted them and used them to make the sides of this wagon, Al's Toy Barn, the toybox, some ABC blocks, monkeys, and some other various signs. I used my vinyl cutter to make the Toy Story signs, the Radio Flyer logo, the Al's Toy Barn sign, ABC blocks and the Play-Dough buckets. It turned out awesome! Too bad it was all for one parade. Here are some pics!

    The Original logo is the clients. They have that design already. Fishbone statement. " Over the years he wanted some new designs and I made up a bunch". Those designs belong to FishBone, not the client according to the PM I sent.

    Yes, my cutter is 11 years old and I am still using it on an XP laptop. I have never had a problem with my cutter in 11 years.

    Here's an old Indy Car from the 70's that my uncle and cousin painted and stripped, and another from 1980. That's my Uncle on the far right & his son in the cowboy hat. I used to love watching them paint and the smell of turps and paint, oh..and a few beers and shots were consumed while doing so. My cousin is still doing it at the ripe young age of 76. And all was done freehand, no masking tapes involved

    Work around is to put non glossy tape (scotch invisible) over the part to scan.
