    Large cuts are out of alignment

    I'm leaning software and he used a white stripe to separate them instead of leaving the space between transparent - the bottom image got shifted up on the thin strip. if you notice the letters are not in the middle on that one too about the same amount the big red stripe appears to be shifted up

    Question on copyright infringment

    but you slept in a holiday in express last night? female prisoners would target guys with pensions from quite a ways away because they knew for the mark to sue them they had to travel to our county - - - wasn't right but they got away with a lot because of it. it comes down to integrity and if that is one of your values

    Question on copyright infringment

    does he have any heirs, descendants, does that mean NO One has a legal claim to his work - if we go there and ask lawyers it could very well be taken off the server here. sometimes you don't ask the question you don't want the answer to something I learned at the prison

    Question on copyright infringment

    after an artist dies are you legally able to sell copies of their artwork? can I sell copies of singers songs after they die?
  7. In my case I would add registration marks with my RIP software versaworks (only available for Roland printers) and after lamination select cut only on second pass thru that software which would then scan the registration marks. Couldn’t have been easier than with a Roland as it uses big circles a and a small rectangle on one corner

    Graphtec CE7000 Push Rollers

    update - I am not going to do extensive testing until my fever goes down (3rd day and lower gi issues) but graphtec sent new "guides" with a 1/4" raised nylon strip that at first try seems to feed better

    Question on copyright infringment

    early on I did a stripe for my hemi truck with a tribal ram head that was never used by the company- I got a C&D - I questioned it because chevy also made a hemispherical engine. I was told again to C&D in no uncertain terms - my MIL as the time was an atty with the AG office and I asked her - she said for enough money I might win but the company will make it so expensive for me I will never recoup what I put into it. I chose to stop at that point. Getting cocky with a trademark/copyright owner seldom works out good in the long run - some even go looking for infringement thru 3rd parties like Harley -

    My cutter is cutting sloppy

    if it was blade offset your corners on the squares would not be sharp - there is something moving somewhere - start with what skeeter said, make sure the carriage is on track, make sure there are no cracks in the carriage blade holder, the cut stip is not grooved, and maybe a new blade holder. also make sure you are unrolling enough for the job and not making the plotter pull it off the roll
