    Reflective

    This may have been asked before but I am going to cut some reflective vinyl for the first time. I am using 3M 5100 and cutting with a Laserpoint 3, i have the 60 degree blade in my machine but I'm not sure about pressure. Any advice? Thanks...

    Layering vinyl

    Still green when it comes to layering. I wanted to ask about application fluid. Can I use that to layer a design that is still on backing paper? Trying to do it dry but I just don't have the technique down yet. I though about trying application fluid, or soap and water to layer the different colors. Recommendations...?

    Light Grey 651

    A customer wants some decals done in a light grey matte vinyl for an auto decal. I can't find any 651, is there something else that someone could recommend? Thanks...
  4. I have to say I hate the registration marks that come with VinyMaster. What can I do to have better registration marks, the little diamond shape pieces move and come off. I saw someone once use just plain squares and everything lined up perfectly. Do I have to do that for each layer of color or...? Thanks...

    Talking with my cousin this morning, she bought the jpg only from a site called "canva". She never got it from shutterstock. She even sent me the email of the receipt showing that she paid for the image in jpg format. I'm sorry if I got a little hostile, but being in the screen printing business for over a decade, I know these laws and how they work. I wasn't trying to skirt copyrights/trademarks, I was simply asking for recommendations on how to make this image cut ready. I fully understand where skeeter is coming from, but I felt like i was being lectured. I will make sure moving forward that I will clearly state that any image I post is owned by me or that i have paid for it. Wildgoose, I also have had issues with Harley Davidson, their legal team is very tough to deal with, but it got resolved in the end and we were able to come to an understanding.

    Ok, first of all, I didn't ask anyone to vector it for me. I simply asked for recommendations, not a lecture from you about what's legal and what isn't. So do me a favor and just stop responding. Admin, please delete this thread since it's been hijacked by a copyright/trademark expert...thank you...

    Calm down ok, she did by the license to use the image after all. So, thanks for the lecture, someone else gave me some pointers on how to do it. Yes I do know what copyrights and trademarks are and how they work, I have one. Good day sir...

    I understand copyrights, I didn't know that she got it from there.

    Oh wow...ok, I didn't realize it was a shutterstock file. My cousin actually sent it to me and wanted it cut. Thanks for the heads up. Sorry about that... If the admin need to delete this post, feel free...!

    How would you cut this image? It's a jpg file, about 96 DPI. I run it though the image trace on Illustrator but when I expand it, it's a mess of paths. Anyone have a recommendation on how to get this cut ready so I can layer it? Thanks,

    Yea, I'm the same way, but that's their design. All the shirts that they do with that design have it. Also, I would have rounded all the claws at the bottom like the middle one. I don't know, maybe it was done that way for a reason. Still think it's cool though, definitely tested my rookie status...

    Well, luckily the customer was willing to remove the font and like we did with the even smaller decals. I searched for more YouTube university videos for help fine tuning the LP3, there just isn't much out there. I changed out my blade, set up the offset and re-calibrated the cutter and everything worked great. This one was a challenge for sure but I think they came out nice...!

    I did just like you said, the blade barely coming out of the holder. Used a scrap piece and it cut the vinyl and everything looks good. I was wondering if that lettering is just too small for the cutter to handle. I'm cutting it at 11 x 11 inches and the font is just under a 1/4 inch.

    Using a Laserpoint 3, with the speed at 100 and the pressure at 64.
