    I saw the post on Gizmodo. Awesome deal if you don't need the latest and greatest. Gizmodo Article
  2. Looks great. Don't over analyze things, I'm learning to just relax and not over think it. I was never a great designer and part of that is because I don't just let things flow, I nit pick. One thing that helped me was looking at other signs, you notice that all you're doing is glancing at them. If you really looked you probably could nit pick them too, but why.

    contour w/ flexi

    This is great. I was just talking to my brother about doing some contour cutting of some graphics for his company but wasn't sure how. Thanks!

    Screenprinting vs Vinyl

    I did some youth basketball T-shirts with white Siser Easyweed. It's not glossy at all. If you like screen printing you could use cut/weeded vinyl in your screen instead of emulsion. I've seen it done on youtube and I'm about to start trying that out.

    Vinyl won't come off transfer tape

    If you're using the AT-60 then it's the app tape.

    RTape Clear Choice AT60 HELP!

    Me and others have had the same issue with AT60. I think its a bad batch or horrible new formula.

    Thanks, Love the celebrity silhouettes.
  19. Thanks Towman, I'll make sure I pay your kindness forward to the forum.
  20. VM, definitely true. My problem was different because I bought it used and abused. I wasn't sure if BobbyD bought his new or used, because if you're buying it used you may be dealing with other peoples neglect or ignorance for machine care.
  21. I bought my CE5000-60 used. It really disapointed me at first with all the poor cuts. THEN, I went and bought a Clean Cut blade! Fixed all my problems. I sound like a commercial, but it's true. I really thought I bought an expensive "lemon" and then I replaced the blade and all was good. I can't explain the relief I felt. It was so much of a relief I always will speak awesome about their blades. No doubt, the best.

    Sign I finished Today

    To be honest, I didn't notice the "i" problem. Looks good from my "mostly inexperienced, but still a general public" point of view. In total, it's a simple sign for a simple and small organization. Not gonna get too many remarks on it. Nice work.

    hey trying to upgrade

    Graphtec........Look on craigslist, that's where I found my CE5000-60 for $700. You just gotta be looking at the right time. I'm still new to this whole thing but I've never been limited by my cutter, just me.
