    Just for your reference --- there is a substantial Library of vector graphics available right within SignBlazerElements. Animals, Flourishes, Arrows, Ampersands, Stars, etc etc.

    change the save location

    Hi there, cubby. This one is easy ---- using the 'SAVE AS' dialogue box (File menu) choose an existing folder or make a new folder, and place the VM file there. Next time you open the program, it will remember that.

    Getting involved with garment transfers is a major financial investment, not in the hundreds, but several thousands of $$$. Not to mention the amount of physical space it would require, and you probably are in a condo that has limited room (even squeezing in that MH cutter was likely a challenge). You would be well-advised to outsource this type of work.

    Need carriage mh 871 ( us cutter back order)

    " I have a lady who is supposed to ship me one tomorrow. " Hopefully it arrives as promised. Wishing you good luck, as we all know that having a cutter not working is a very frustrating thing, as customers are lined up and you can't deliver their work. Let us know the outcome.

    Need carriage mh 871 ( us cutter back order)

    (I searched eBay and there are no MH units listed non-working, and since craigslist is for local transactions only, I feel it's unlikely Chris will be able to find a broken machine nearby to him, wherever that happens to be). What exactly happened that led you to require replacing the carriage?

    Hi guys I'm new to all this

    You purchased a cutter from someone, and saw it running OK before you took it, right? Since you're seeking assistance from random people on the internet, it might be worthwhile to give some more information beyond "It ain't working..."

    You should also be already downloading and experimenting with VinylMaster (free trial).
  9. Dunkin' is throwing away the ‘Donuts' in their name brand. Dunkin' Brands Group Inc. announced Tuesday that it will officially change the chain's name from "Dunkin' Donuts" to simply "Dunkin.'" The change will be effective January 2019, and will be reflected on all packaging, as well as the company's advertising and website. All new and remodeled stores in the U.S. will use the new 'Dunkin' logo on interior and exterior signage. (Boston Business Journal)

    Unable to cut .eps

    To directly answer Brandi's specific question --- IrfanView is free and can be used as a 'canopener' for these types of files and then transferred into SBE.

    Unable to cut .eps

    I assume that dakota opened this file in Adobe Illustrator and saved it as a legacy version (v.8 and prior)? (and provided you with that Back_saved file) SignBlazer chokes on current versions of .eps files -- the program has not been updated in many years, so it doesn't have the code to import stuff created more recently.

    Help New to Cutting

    Constance -- do what I suggested, please. I have no idea what was just said by darcshadow, it just got me confused and I'm not a fresh newbie! I'm sure he is correct but really, it seems like a lot of hoops to jump through when SBE does it in a jiffy with a single command and that is just PunchThrough, within the Arrange menu /Weld/ --> PunchThrough. You DO NOT weld. (EDITED: After you achieve the punch-through, you can then select JUST the script text, which apparently requires welding to connect the individual letters, but that is a completely different issue than what is being asked here) Once you have installed SBE, you'll be able to do this without breaking a sweat. And, if anyone using VMCut can chime in, perhaps there is a way in that program, I just couldn't spend my time searching. (it is not listed in the HELP search)
