    Vinyl Printer/Cutter

    Not to interupt. Oh, and HNY everyone! If you were starting out today with limited income. What vinyl printer would you buy? For say signs, decals, etc. Thanks in advance. And yes, I have read above.

    Wyn, 67 year old newbe.

    Hello, Im a New Englander, semi retired in Ocala FL.. I have a new MH871 and am enjoying the VinylMaster learning curve. Have actually managed within my first few days, to make a custom decal for my car, and now all my friends want one. Interesting. I know some of you may be helping me in the future. So thank you in advance! Wyn
  3. Probably right in front of my face. I am using Vinylmaster CUT. I have a piece of artwork and I just want to cut the perimeter. Can't figure out how to do that. Thanks in advance.

    Building a road

    Thanks in advance. Trying to build a road. An Ariel view using a capitol S, as the road. Want to put a yellow line in the center . Only way I've figured out so far is to freehand draw the yellow line. Na! Is there a way to duplicate the S and make it very skinny and place on the road?

    Registration marks

    Question. Made a 3 layer piece. Had reg. marks on them but they came proportional to cut. Is there a way to make them the same as the base so I could have lined them up? Ended up eye balling it. A little off but still usable.

    Vinyl on vinyl.

    Thanks in advance. When layering vinyl on vinyl I'm finding the transfer tape adhesive is stronger than the vinyl stuck to the paper and vinyl base. Thus having a heck of a time pulling off the transfer tape without pulling up the base layer. Is there, or should I use, perhaps a different transfer tape for vinyl on vinyl?

    Oh yeah, wet is the best bet! Especially with lots of little tiny intricate vinyl pieces.

    Doing just that, Wild Man. Some of the cuts have pointy cuts and that's what comes up. I try and hold it down with my squeegee or pic. Which works but it sure adds time to the work. Not to mention much cursing!

    Temprature

    Thanks in advance. I live in central Florida. My studio is in my Florida room and faces east. At night it gets around 50 degrees. When the sun comes up it bounces up to 70 + in about 2 hours. I keep all my vinyl in the house but I had left the cuts and TransferRite in the Florida room. Today I weeded it and was transferring one color to another. Did my squeege routine and applied it to the other color. You guessed it, had one hell of a time trying to peel it off. The vinyl kept coming up. My guess is perhaps with the temperature change it effected it somewhat. Any thought's?

    Temprature

    Thanks MZ. I figured it might be temperature. What do you mean " the vinyl will heal itself?" How's the weather up there? Gonna be sunny and 75 today here. Haha!

  15. Posting some of my stuff. Try not to laugh. I've only been doing this for about 8 weeks. From just being an email web surfer. I know, the Vinyl Stuff is out of proportion, etc. Perhaps this takes you back to your early days? lol... Please feel free to critique the hell out of it!

    Send your children out of the room.

    Thanks DS. Yeah, I'm finding that out. But, being a newbie, gotta master CUT then move on.

    Nice sale, you are busy. Would you mind if I sent it to you for your opinion? Would I need something special to duplicate a high resolution picture? It would probably have to be on a polo type shirt 50 50 cotton and poly. Just the front.

    Send your children out of the room.

    Yeah, been thinking about shirts myself Wild Man. Do I just need a press 15 x 15 and some heat vinyl? In fact, I have designed a shirt for my boss. Would you like to make them for me? I'm waiting for a picture that a guy I work with is going to take for me. Would be two shirts only at the start. I truly believe that that would turn into perhaps 10/20 a month if he goes for it. Two would be the bait. If you want I'll email what I have so far, for you to look at. You are welcome to change it anyway you see fit.

    Perhaps Hilary reading a book with her dogs on the other side? Yeah, way small, Just using up the remnants of the vinyl that came with my cutter. Just ordered a bunch more and a few other items. Nice hobby. My guess there is no money in decals. My idea was to start off small work my way into signs etc.. Thanks.

    Building a road

    Perhaps easier if I show you. My thought is I should be able to make an S, duplicate it, make it yellow and very skinny, insert it in the black S and viola, or as I like to say Viola I have a curvy road.

    They did, it works a bit but as you draw it together to make a line it starts to disappear.

    Building a road

    Thanks MZ. Can I save it as a PDF or something and transfer it to VM CUT, Then continue working on it there? Any thought on my yellow line in the middle of my ariel road view?
