    SummaCut D60 loading 6 inch width vinyl help?

    Wild Goose I just marked up the OP's photo. I went over to my Summa D60 and tried to replicate the same photo. I used a piece of paper so it could be seen better. The pinch rollers are all the way down, the one on the right is in the detent, the left one isn't in the detent. The carriage is pushed all the way to the carriage (right) and you can't see the downward pointing white arrow on the right side like you can in the OP's photo. The only way I could get the far right white arrow to show in the photo was to, lift the pinch rollers and slide the carriage over to the right, which drug the pinch roller off of the white paper and grit roller. The white paper is positioned to cover the right end of the grit roller. You'll also notice the gap between the edge of the paper and the knife holder is further apart than my photo above but the same as the OP's photo. I added the OP's photo just so it would be close to my post. There is no way my Summa's carriage will go that far past the right pinch roller. That's the only reason I mentioned it in my post. Maybe the newer Summa plotters will.

    SummaCut D60 loading 6 inch width vinyl help?

    I'm really not sure since I don't use Summa Cut or GoSign. I'm a Flexisign user. There is one thing that I noticed on your D60. The knife head is on the right of the right pinch roller. I went back to my summa D60 which is an older 24" cut plotter and my knife head is in between the left and right pinch rollers. I don't know if Summa made a change in the D60's over time. Can you push the knife head past the pinch rollers? I can't push the knife head past either of the pinch rollers on my D60. Does your D60 have 3 pinch rollers? If it does that explains the reason it can pass the center pinch roller.

    I have no problem cutting vinyl that's only 2" wide on my Summa D60. You need both pinch rollers on the vinyl and the brass roller below. Hows the blade depth?

    Another new guy to vinyl

    Hello and Welcome from Florida.
  10. I've used this on flat black and it really stands out. darcshadow is correct it does fade faster than other colors. The color is not all the way through the vinyl like 951 cor 751 either it's a coating on white vinyl.

    App Tape holder/dispenser

    Yeah I got a metal roller and it will hold a roll up to 27" , I don't know of one that is wider. Good idea making your own. I lowered my rollers down 2.5" to keep the tape closer to the vinyl.

    Any tips on application tape, fixing? wide stuff!

    Yup I use 2 C-clamps to hold it to the table. You sure can, you just got to keep it tight. clamp it to the table, lay the decal on the table in front of the rollers and pull off enough tape to cover the whole decal. keeping the Tape tight lay one end of it past the decal and stick it to the table. Start squeegeeing just be careful because the app tape and decal can pull back up off of the table and when you go back to make another pass with the squeegee you can get wrinkles. Use your other hand to help hold the app tape and decal on the table where you have squeegeed. It can take some practice.

    Tee Shirt or Decal

    Thanks Slice and Dice, I was wondering what file format could be used. Whenever I do a job that needs to be printed I design in Flexi and save as an AI file to send to the printer. I Think the wholesale printer I use prints from AI files. But I'm in Florida and my friend is across the country. he'll bring the file to his print source. Thanks Wild Goose, I won't be cutting this one in Vinyl. It's going to be used for Tee shirts and full color decals printed on white vinyl. Something I know very little about is screen printing, I do know that each color is applied individually and a different screen is needed for each color. I didn't know if my friend would consider Screen Printing and just wanted to be prepared in case he asked. I would think that Screen Printing would need a vector file. I could pair down the colors Like you mention and see if I could make it work. Thanks again for everyone's help.
