    looking for tips and tricks on this vector

    i gave up flexi because it kept crashing. I wasn't the original owner of the purchased software so they would not help me one bit, And i truly understand that. ive been tweaking with different items and they dont come out the same, this picture was drew up by my tattoo artist. i have the graphtec software that came with the cutter but it keep wanting to update it everytime that i load it im guess they want me to buy the $699 cd because this one will only trace it and not good. im confused just spent 3k on stuff and seem to keep getting crapped on by buying a new cutter and the software that came with it. Will the mark ruben cd work with the graphtec or do i have to buy new software again??? for the 3rd dang time

    I have a client that would like me to sponsor his racecar. What would be the pros and cons of doing said job. Also what do you think the requirements of him if i did so? how many races he should attend, promotional items, sticker sales and maybe a contract? i have never really done something like this so it would be a first on my part to discuss to him what would be required of him for me to sponsor his car . thanks in advance

    i recently purchased a graphtec plotter, to my knowledge i was basically purchasing a newer version of flexi software. But im trying to trace a photo with multiple colors, when i try to trace it it all comes out black how does one redo it so it will come out the three colors needed? its like flexi a little but not understanding how to trace it like on flexi. i have read some of the instructions but to me its not clear because i can not find the right tools on the software

    sweet im glad you clarify this, because i told my wife that we needed the full version not just one that came with the cutter. she said oh i read up on it and we can use it and it has what we need. i would like to be right for once but guess what . As many of you all know thats a different ballpark

    legal reasons?? hmm ok but i had flexi 8.1 pro and its basically the same but i just want to be able to do my distort and all of that back like flexi had. for some reason i had issues with it crashing and no help from sai now they are say cause they make it but i have to talk with a graphtec rep. like this is getting so annoying going back and forth i just want to get my stuff back like it was without the hassle of having to buy everything else. when it comes with the download would i need to buy any other software?

    Need an idea for trailers

    try using some greenstar and putting it on some white rectangle then you can pull the entire logo off at once .but most of the time i get that they say its for a short time and they actually are looking for a CHEAP SIGN just to display their business for YEARSSSS!

    Cant cut any further

    As i bought this new cutter i thought it was pretty decent. But how can i actually use the whole sheet of vinyl? seems to me graphtec should figure this out instead of selling me a machine that i can not use the whole section to cut something. If there is a way how do i do this . when i align it (vinyl) and move it to location it basically tells me to move it to the blue section.

    Cant cut any further

    OH MY GOSH Been having a really bad off day today, SHALL I SAY! thank you very much. i just don't understand why the cant make the blue strip the entire way across, so it wont cause it to not cut and stop.

    why does this machine waste vinyl

    Does anyone know why this machine waste so much vinyl. and also it will hardly accept smaller pieces of cut vinyl it tells me to load media .. It acts ok on the small thing but when cutting long signs it gets off track EVEN WHEN i cut the vinyl straight across and set it correctly in the machine. my old pcut didnt have this much trouble when cutting a sign. it also bunches up on longer signs. I thought this was suppose to be a top of the line machine but yet it gets off track even with the sensors it has . it is being sold as a 24 inch cutter but cant not hardly cut up to 22inch wide because it gets off track so much. someone please help im about to return this thing,
