    What font?

    Anybody know what font this is ? https://images.app.goo.gl/7dQivExdCPfyd8UC9 Thanks
  2. Hi to get a bit of practice in ive grabbed some signs and tried to replicate them. This one looks great but when i try to cut it it cuts a red rectangle and then cuts the letters in white seperatly ? also its the same with the green rectangle? What im trying to do is have a red rectangle with the letters cut out and then two green strips with the letters cut out...the white will be the wall colour? thanks STAR CLUB.vDoc
  3. Many thanks will give it a go
  4. Sorted it! Its quite hard to select 2 objects before using the punch tool. Is there a way to select 2 objects using the object tool bar on the left of the main screen? instead of trying to put a box around the two objects? thanks
  5. I managed to punch out the letters on the green rectangles but the red rectangle wont allow me to punch out the letters?

    Multi layer vinyl?

    I cut a design out which has 4 colours, i wanted to stack them on top of each other they are very detailed with lots of small pieces. I cut the base layer and i wet the surface with a mist of water with a little soap and put the new layer on top, i could jiggle it about so it lined up perfect ( I had put registration marks on the design too) But it was a right job trying to remove the clear transfer paper and leave the small bits of the design on top of the base layer mainly due to the base layer been damp and the size of the new layer parts, i did squezee as much water as i could. Is there any tips on doing this? Would it be better to leave the second layer to dry completly before trying to remove the clear transfer paper? Any tips would be welcomed? Due to the actual size and small detail of the design, and some bits seemed a little off you need to jiggle it about a bit to get it to look right so doing it dry would be more of a nightmare thanks

    Multi layer vinyl?

    Ok thanks as i said i can not print because lots of the design is in free air its not just a block of stacked vinyl there are hundreds of tiny bits to the design which are away from the main part. Which in the end will be stuck to a piece of opal perspex with a light shining through..thanks

    Multi layer vinyl?

    Ok thanks, why do people layer from top down? It fries my brain a little thinking about doing it that way...

    Multi layer vinyl?

    It's a design where some of the parts are layered on top of another vinyl but lots of the different coloured layers are in a space and not touching another layer so printing would not be an option. Its worked doing the layers wet but it took some time to do....thanks

    Multi layer vinyl?

    Hi thanks so are you saying that only paper application tape is suitable for doing layers wet? The items are to be sent to a customer fully layered and for him to just fix the pre layered piece? Would it be easier to layer in the vertical position. I tried removing the full backing piece but found it impossible to line up on a desk when dry? Thanks

    vinyl on inside of a window?

    Hi all, How would normal vinyl look if you mirrored cut it and then stuck it to the inside of a window viewed from the outside ? So you would be viewing the adhesive side ? thanks

    vinyl on inside of a window?

    it would be used on a piece of perspex which is on a lightbox. I could stick it to the front of the perspex but was thinking ofsticking it to the inside of the perspex
  15. Hi I googled how to add extra weeding lines to a piece ready to be cut and found this from a few years ago... I sent file to cutter etc and can add a weedbox but can not find how you can double click on the edge to add more? Am i on the right track? thanks
  16. Hi all, I can add registration marks to my work in the final cut page, but wondered how i could add them earlier? I would prefer marks to be not so vinyl wasting so closer to my work piece? I can add some stars in my design to act as marks but when it goes to cut they are only on the colour you add them has? Is there an easy way to say add 4 stars and then for them to appear on each colour you are about to cut? thanks
  17. thanks that works a treat
  18. Hi many thanks I will have a look...I have the DSR version so should be on there?
  19. Trying to size the design to be as big as poss, If im using 610mm vinyl what size would the max be, leaving some room either side? Or can i nearly cut the full 610mm ? thanks
  20. Hi sorry there dont seem to be a Liyu brand in the list? Just had a play around with it and i ran a long piece through, it was ok but the biggest problem seems to be getting it in square with the machine? 1mm out of square and by the time it gets to the other end its drifted quite a bit. So i squared it up the other way and it was a lot better. Ive stuck a piece of tape between the edge of the machine and the vinyl so im not trying to square up a 2 inch gap with the tape its 1/2 gap now?
  21. It's the Liyu DF 631 cutter I have with servo motor thanks
  22. Do people usually cut a piece of vinyl a little longer than their logo etc, or leave full roll on rollers and pull some out so it's free from the roll and cut at end?
  23. Ok yes good idea so use the directional buttons to move it to the end of the piece. I remembered when I was looking at software I tried a few different free trial copies and one of them had lots choices of different ways how it cut I can not see anything on vinylmaster? Thanks
