    Best Vinyl to use for Polypropylene Bags

    Thank you! You solved my problem. I went to http://www.siserna.com/heat-apply-htv-heat-sensitive-material/ and found the answer in the comments. She said that the Siser Easy Weed would work. So I did a test on one of the bags and it worked great! I did 12 seconds at 270 and it didn't stick so I raised it to 280 for 12 seconds and it worked great!
  2. I'm needing to cut and press 50 polypropylene bags and not sure which vinyl I need to use.
  3. I spent a day trying to add that bow when I can go online and buy it for $1.50. I'm trying to do the jeep with the bow. Thanks again for all of your help!
  4. I looked on etsy and found where I can just buy the file. They come in SVG, DXF and PNG. Will the uscutterMH 871-MK2 , using the Vinylmaster ltr program cut it?
  5. Thanks Sue, I was able to print what I needed by changing the color. A new problem that I have is I am trying to add a pink bow to an object. But the only bow that I can find is just white with a color outline. I need it solid so I can show my customer what it will look like. I have broke it up but still cant color the inside. any suggestions.
  6. Thank you, I will save two copies everytime on things that I may need to make changes to and see if this will help. One to print and one to make changes too.
  7. I have everything broke apart. As long as it says artistic text it will let me change anything or see the font but somehow after I group it, save it and cut it, it says curve and the nodes. Then I cant do anything to it but delete it and redo that part. Sue I did change the color just now and was able to cut separate. I messed up on weeding a logo and needed two letters so this helped a lot. Just have to figure out how to change the type. I am working on a project that the header is all the same but the text at the bottom is different on each one. So it would be easier if I could just go in and save it as a duplicate and then just change the words on each one instead of having to redo it every time. Any suggestions. Thanks a lot guys, you help me tremendously.
  8. Thanks again for all of your help! I have my cutter cutting great, my press is perfect for what I need and I was really surprised on how heavy and well built that the press was. I have made a few of our company shirts and they all turned out great except for a few of the first ones. I washed them inside out and the problem with them is that when they came out of the wash, the vinyl was wrinkled looking. I hung them to dry and then decided what did I have to loose but to throw them in the dryer and just see what the outcome would be and they actually turned out good. I'm not sure if you know anything about the program vinylmaster ltr but I have posted in the program area and no one has commented. It may be a crazy question but I'm stuck and can't move forward. I created some projects and cut and saved them but when I went back into the program later and wanted to make some changes to the text. It won't let me. The text shows as curve instead of artistic text now. It will let me delete it and retype it but I have to match the fonts up the sizes up and everything again and try to guess what the font was that I used because it wont show me anything. Maybe you can help me or tell me which direction to go to get help.
  9. I saved a project after I cut it in vinylmaster LTR. When I weeded it one of my letters messed up so I was going to go back in and just print that word but it will not let me make any changes to my words except delete it and then it comes back as a different font and size. I need the exact so I can fix the work that I messed up originally.
  10. Thanks again for your help. I'm going to order the recommended 15" X 15" digital swing arm heat press. I have researched all weekend and this seems to be the best unless I have a lot more to invest. I am going to get the one with the HTV Bundle. It is a better deal than ordering them separate and I can make all of the colors work. I see where a lot of people use the non stick sheets. Will I need them or do you recommend them for most of the time?
  11. mfatty500, you have any suggestions for a starter heat press?
  12. Thank you Wildgoose, Your a lot of help. Do you have a good place to buy wholesale shirts.
  13. I checked that one out and they have one that bundles with 5 15" X 5 yds of the Easy Weed vinyl. Is that a good vinyl? Is it worth paying the extra $50.00.
  14. The customer brought me the shirt and I typed up 5 words and applied it. It was a joke for a friend of his. I told him 15.00 and he insisted on me taking $40.00 so i came out really good on this shirt. And got the practice.
