    Changing text

    if you created it you should be able to change the text... Make sure you check on the big A (text mode) then hi light the text you want to change. you should see the Font type up in the left hand upper corner.. you should be able to click on it and change it.. it took me a while to figure that out also.
  2. you paid for the sign, I would had charged about $20-25 yeah its bigger, but i enjoy bigger stuff rather then tiny stuff, were making magnets for my womans family reunion and it is so tiny. trying to weed out something the size of business cards Glad she had patience to do them.
  3. expensive for me, but most on here would say its cheap im sure. I just paid $200 for a 15x15 feel i got a good deal. if it last 2 yrs and makes me money i might go to something lil more expensive next time.
  4. For that kinda money I sure hope its a great one.. I watched the video pretty neat how you can slide from one side to other.
  5. Okay so i got my shirts and HTV for the family reunion shirts and have been working yesterday and today on them, got my new 15x15 press and loving it. so nice to be able to have the timer built in and the temp and for it to tell me the temp on display but ive been double checking for now with my temp gun. anyhow today I've had 2 letters that tried to lift up with me when i went to peel the clear off after took off the press. im confused to why just a couple these random letters have done this. Right now i have a bottom part of a E that is lifted it didn't stay stuck at all its in the middle of the shirt and there is 2018 date below it and words above there all seem fine. I had the L on another shirt do same thing but it seemed to stay down. I did re press it for a few seconds when i noticed. Not really sure what I should do when this happens. I almost thought the press was to hot but i was at 315 and doing it for 15 seconds Thanks
  6. Oh, alright , well i dont know why those 2 shirts did that then.. maybe it wasn't hot enough along the whole thing. but i did fix the shirts after and my new shirt i made yesterday did fine.
  7. Ive never read anything like that Most people say it will outlast your shirt. i know I have t shirts with sayings on them and the shirts have holes and are stretched out and pretty much rags now but the saying while faded is still on the shirt. Not any ive personally done as ive just gotten into this hobby about 2 months ago. I totally forgot about the heating the htv up before you weed it ive got to try that next time i do a shirt
  8. Thanks, I had forgot why people pre pressed for. I don't know why some people on utube videos dont pre press Thanks for the info, I did notice that some spots on the press is different temps one spot be 305 another only 300. So Yeah.. Ive done a few more shirts and they all turned out better. I think i might had it to hot for a couple of those. I ended up taking a Heat iron a small one and pressed those messed up words they look perfect now. New press and not sure how much pressure is needed think i will turn the knob a lil to get a lil more pressure.

    Small order pricing.

    its a friend. actually a girl i kinda dated and i know she wears XL cause she wore my shirts before. didn't ever think she would want a 2XL shirt. but i will be clear to Everyone else anything over a XL is $5 more

    Small order pricing.

    I don't know who your buying from or how many of what size of what you need but I so far order all my shirts from one place and its $5.95 for shipping. I would think it be easy enough just to add $6 more to the total and let them pay it. I did just get kinda messed over when i told a customer her shirt would cost $15 then she says of btw i need a 2xl.. and i know 2xl are going to cost like $5.00 just for the shirt now she doesn't want to pay the $5 extra.
  14. well i just looked online and the easyweed pdf i found showed 305 temp so maybe a lil to hot guess i will try it there with next one and see how it goes. My older Press i was using i dont think it was keeping temp well.
  15. I did notice the white shirt is Fruit of loom Heavy HD Cotton the Youth is Glidan heavy cotton and the other shirts ive done all have been Fruit of loom just Regular HD cotton not sure any of that matters?
  16. I totally just realized i posted in the wrong spot can u move it to the t shirt area? I was before theses shirts always doing the pre press but ive been folding these in half and press for couple seconds to make a cress, as i seen a tip on utube and so not been doing the regular press the HOLT looks the worse would you say to much heat or not enough? Here are pictures, There from jiffyshirts. Ive not had a issue only one youth shirt and one adult one out of the 5 i've done so far in this order.

    that sounds right. I remember a guy wasted about a roll of vinyl once trying to do my old 97 Blazer windshield he never got it 100% correct ended up giving me the words i wanted split for me to just put it on. I don't think he was happy cause his wife told me he would do it for the practice and not charge me anything, I had been talking to her a while online this was back in the early 2000's
  21. Thanks for the info. Good to know how others are doing it. Gives us small folks ideas and or something to look at. I didn't know Ebay offered anything like that. I guess that is the driffrence between personal and business Ebay.

    Good luck, Those curves can be a headache. I thought i never was going to get the banner across the front of my windshield
  23. Guess that's not to bad. I have shipped a few items, for people who live far away done two things for my Cousin so far. I guess i have felt like in person exchanging the items and money is better. For me the post office is 15 mile round trip i live in a small town.
  24. Sure would love to, but so far ive just sold to friends, local folks. So far its not expanded to others. I have a personal Ebay I have had it for years, only sold a few things over the years just electronic type items.. Selling on ebay don't you get hit hard in Fees that Ebay takes? That is why I stopped selling on ebay years ago. So do you just do random items and put on your store to sell? Im sure you have in each ad you can do custom things also. biggest job ive done was 2) kid t shirts and 2 decals 910 inch long x3 tall it think that was $50 for being shipped to them. I did just get paid for a t shirt order tho this is my largest yet. new press be here Monday shirts on Tuesday i will be busy next week got 15 shirts to make front and back full logos. I would love one of those orders each week.
  25. You sound just like me, I got my First Cutter on Valentines day of this year and before that I hardly seen anyone around Facebook groups doing this stuff, well it seem like the first week i get my stuff that now everyone is doing it, Every time i see a "Can someone make me this " there are already 20 replies with everyone either giving out there facebook page or tagging a friend or someone they know who has a small cutter and does logos.. I try to put out there that i use good , new well made vinyl that will last unlike others. If people want to get me to do there stuff great.... So far Honestly i've not made what i thought i would but its been only 2 months, So I guess honestly Ive not done bad. All of what i have done have been 95% decals. I just ordered me a 15x15 heat press and Going to try pushing more for t shirts. It is amazing how many people don't understand about Vinyl shirts one of my FB friends asked if they held up being wash. I let him know he probably has Vinyl made shirts at home and doesn't even realize it. I have kinda become friends with a local Vinyl shops and they make all there money on T shirts. I hope I can make some. Right now i'm doing Family Reunion Shirts for my women's fathers side and i'm charging $15-25 depending on size. Not sure if others charge more for the shirts per size but I have to since i have no money up to just supply the shirts. Good luck hope you figure out what works for you.. I been charging $8 for up to a 6x6 decal and prices go up after that size and or if more then one color..
