  1. If skeeter said it works, trust me. (and her) IT WORKS!
  2. Missed that part about the controller not working. But ya. Like skeeter said. It has to be ready to go. Messed me up at first, but works very well.
  3. You should have "cutting plotter controller" installed. Work the cutter with the PC instead of the pad.
  4. Cobra has some good videos on clogged heads. But ya, the WF will clog if not used a lot.
  5. I really like the pigment ink. Seems so much more durable.
  6. You can as a last resort, put invisible scotch tape over the marks to take the shine out. Has been known to work.
  7. From what I have seen, laser prints are a bit on the shiny side. The optic in a graphtec don't like that very much. You can play with the thickness of the marks and see if that helps. Thinner, probably better.
  8. I have an older epson wf7520 that has been great. Got a cobra cis on it and aside from head cleaning if I don't use it for months, prints great every time. And with pigment ink, the prints last!

    Okay I can't find it.

    Not a VM user, but it should be called contour cut.

    Step one. Or not, but it is the best start you can have.

    vinylmaster cut v4.0

    From the look of that, I hope you clean it up a lot before you try to cut it. And before you make copies for the color change.
  13. Over center setting. Should be on the handle near the top platen.

    641 Economy Oracal vinyl doesn't release to transfer tape

    Both in stock. Could be weight since the 41 is a tiny bit thicker and ship by weight? Don't really know.

    641 Economy Oracal vinyl doesn't release to transfer tape

    Believe it or not, up here in Canada, 641 is a LOT more expensive than 651. Like around 40% more. Ok, not as bad as I thought. Realized it was comparing 15 inch to 24 inch.

    Sublimation Problem - Black Ink Trash / Spotting

    Maybe clean the print head? Just throwing that out there.
  18. And, (maybe) in your situation if you call you get the forum discount and he "may" work out an e-transfer for you. (remember, I said "may". Don't know myself)

    Layering vinyl questions

    Even if you perfect layering, the buyer would probably get bubbles installing it due to the varying thickness. Personally, I would sell them as separate pieces with instructions and let them do it right. (if they read the instructions)
  20. Cleancut is the best you are going to get. You could maybe give them a call and see what you can work out with him. He is a great guy to work with. http://www.cleancutblade.com/

    Layering vinyl questions

    You can stack to make 1, but it takes a lot of practice. Always better to assemble at the final resting place.

    Change Job names in Spooler

    If you have all the files saved, why care about the spool files. Delete them all and use the saved files. I don't think you need instant access to files you may never cut again.
