  1. Yes, thank you, sorry for not Yes, they are Graphtec blades. I actually work in a different department and I own a CE5000 that I do my own stuff with at home. The guy that makes the signs at work asked me for help when he stared having issues. he tells me that he is doing the same thing he has done the whole time. I have never had any similar issues the double cut theory makes sense but I watched it cut and it only went around each letter once. maybe its like carving/pealing a strand instead of cutting, I'm not sure.
  2. We recently changed a blade on our Graphtec FC7000-100 with the same type that was in it before just a new one. We make a lot of street signs and use a lot of truculent vinyl. When we sen that job it starts out fine but as it goes it seems to have the effect of losing downforce and is just scoring the vinyl at the end of the cut and the last few letters are not weedable. Looking at the cutter knife after there is remnants of the vinyl on the knife like a very small strand wrapped around the blade. When I switch to regular vinyl there are no issues loosing pressure so that leased me to be leave it is and issued with the material getting stuck on the blade. Mat

    More Font Help

    Yes I have looked in those places, I can't seem to find a match, either they don't have it or I'm just missing it. I would assume "HOURS" would be a font other than the "O" and the graphic over the O and the rest of the word. But either way Hours isn't a huge deal I'm more interested in the "After" part.

    Font ID Help On a Logo

    I'm trying to figure out the font in thislogos with no luck yet. I appreciate any help.
  14. Haha ya speed isnt a huge factor for me as long as its accurate. So at this point I think the graphtec is the way to go.
  15. Well according to the buying guide on here the Roland is faster and has more downforce to cut different material. But I did more research on graphtec's web site and because I'm looking at the graphtec CE5000-120 (48") that particular model actually has more downforce than the Roland. I'm leaning more to that graphtec now I think.
