    MAC not compatible? Plz help

    You're fairly limited as to which cutter you can get from USC with your budget. I'd recommend the SC 2 28". It's dual platform friendly, and it's better than the MH. Cutters will only cut vector. Like Skeeter said, you can download the trials on the PC platform and see if that'll work for you. I think SCAL might also have a trial version for your Mac. Either way, the cutter has pretty low system requirements, so you don't need anything state-of-the-art to run the software or machine. Totally free is Sign Blazer Elements for PC. Another alternative is to Bootcamp/VM Fusion/Parallels the Mac if you prefer the PC software, but need to run it on your Mac machine. It will work.

    thankfully, no canoe club has done that here ... and hopefully won't.

    ORACAL 651 15" Vinyl now comes unpunched.

    Great! Now they just need to increase the width of their app tape to match .... and i would need my local shop here to carry the vinyl and wider app tape
  5. typically people just post the file to the forum thread, so that many volunteers can take a stab at problem solving it. if you feel more comfortable just sending it to me, that works too - just click on my profile name, then click Message. you can attach files and shot me a message at the same time. no one else will see the communication or attachment.

    Didn't find the exact, but it's pretty darn close. Gulya Script. You can find it on dafont.com
  8. I might be one of the very few who has both a Graphtec and Graphtec Studio. Hence, the file request. But if you'd rather just tell me what you issue is, without me being able to recreate it on my side, then I cannot help you. Send the file or not, but I'm just going to say, that most times, sending the file helps us volunteers to troubleshoot a lot faster and more thoroughly.
  9. Does the whole roll have warpy vinyl, or just the edge? If it's just the edge, then I'd recommend you cut it off before feeding it into the cutter.
  10. My Graphtec doesn't have the 2nd page in the Advance menu. It goes from 1/3 to 3/3

    Vinyl master ltr

    type your text. select your text. Effects > Distortion > Arc Keep in mind if you're wanting to arc it so it's a bottom rocker, but the text isn't upside down, then rotate it (so it is upside down) prior to arcing it to the bottom.

    Cutting Issues

    Another possibility ... check your x.y and make sure you reset your point of origin prior to cutting. Other than that ... all of what Skeeter said. Maybe it should be a sticky.

    Convert SBD files to EPS

    I still work in SBE at times, and the only thing I will save as an SBD file is the layout. Every element in the SBD file will have been imported from an .eps file, or is straight-up TTF text. Only if necessary, do I bother to export the SBD file to .eps
