    The 'blade holder' logo is no more

    Plus, wasn't it at a pretty severe angle for some weird reason?
  2. FYI, on my SC2 I run my cutter set to 400 speed, and 57 pressure. I go down to like 100-200 on very small or detailed parts.
  3. I've had an SC2 for about 3 years now and have had no problems with it. I don't cut a lot of small stuff with it but here's an anchor that has some pretty small detail and I had no problems with it. I haven't cut anything yet that was too small for my cutter. It sounds like it could be a blade depth issue like Mz Skeeter says.

    Where else to get blank signs?

    USCutter finally stepped up and shipped them out with rush shipping.theyre not here yet, but should be tomorrow. I'll check out Grimco though, it's good to have options.

    Where else to get blank signs?

    I just checked out their website and while they're site was very unimpressive, they're prices weren't. I asked for 50 each of the blank signs and stakes and they had to call me back on shipping... They called back and said shipping alone would be 85.00-90.00!?!?!?! USCutter charges 11.99? You buy regularly from these guys Dakota?

    Where else to get blank signs?

    I ordered a bunch of blank, 18x24, short flute, signs from USCutter last week. They sent me long flutes which I can't use for my order. I called them right when they opened the next day, sent them pictures, and they said they'd send it to their claims department and that I should expect an email with instructions on what will happen next. It's been 3 days now and I hear the same thing from them every time I call. I've had great luck with USCutter in the past but I need these signs and am looking for somewhere else to buy from. Any suggestions?

    Got any tips for me?

    I made one and I really like the idea, but it's a little pain to use so I went back to my normal method. I may try it again, who knows...

    Stop wasting apptape on Coro Signs!

    You don't still have pics of your DIY Speedpress do you? The pics in your post are all gone.

    Never heard of this! Too bad the pics of his build are all gone. I did watch the video though and I like it! thanks!

    Got any tips for me?

    I have a whole bunch of yard signs to make. I think I've gotten a pretty good system down but I'm not a professional, and I know there are a bunch of you with some tips that could help me out, so I had a friend record my process and I'm posting the video here so you can critique it. Before you say anything, I'll answer a couple questions: 1. Yes, the camera is annoying, has a very noisy focus, and keeps going out of focus. It's all I had at the time. 2. Yes I'm using clear packing tape at 3:08. I get it for free and have tons of it. Free tape is cheaper than painters tape. 3. Don't say "Don't rip the transfer tape when unrolling it at 1:26". My bad there. 4. Since the vinyl is exactly the same width as the sign, I have to spend the time lining it up at 2:51, then I don't have to trim the ends. 5. I peel off the transfer tape in 2 pieces at 5:05, so it's easier. That's a big chunk of tape! Let me know if you have any tips for me please. https://youtu.be/txCfoDIecwQ

    Transfer Tape Suggestions?

    Thanks, what are your thoughts on medium vs high tack?

    Transfer Tape Suggestions?

    I've been using Greenstar layflat classic paper tape for most of my stuff, but have also used Transfer Rite 1310G Ultra clear when I really need to line things up. I need to order some more of the standard paper tape, but USCutter is out of the 24". Does anyone have any suggestions for cheap transfer tape or where to get it? Also wondering if I should go to a high tack tape. I've never used it, but often when I'm pulling the paper backing off the vinyl, I start lifting some of the small parts of vinyl off the transfer tape. Whci do you all use more, medium or high tack transfer tape? (BTW, I'm using mostly Oracal 651)

    Grad yard signs

    Nice sign! I charge 20.00, single color, single sided, 18X24 with stake. Would love to know what others charge for similar stuff.

    Grad yard signs

    It's that time of the year again! I made a metric ton of these last year for the 2020 grads. Someone who bought one last year from me also has a graduate this year and wanted the exact same one (with a different hashtag and year) so I made them one. I posted it on Facebook this morning and by 10 pm I have 15 more orders! I expect many more orders once more people see them. Already placed an order with USCutter for more vinyl, blank signs and stakes. I hope I have enough transfer tape to last, they were out of the 24" Greenstar I usually use... These things sell themselves!
  15. I have a 28" SC2. The widest I can cut is 23.6". I even wrote it on a piece of tape and stuck it to the machine so I won't forget it. I just account for that in all my designs and am ok with it.
