    Tunneling when rolling up vinyl!

    what goose said with one note - climate makes a huge difference too in longevity - my basement in michigan with humidity control year round along with the temp control is more like the perfect storage area for vinyl products than say a garage in arizona or florida . . . some of the older app tape when I was buying other people out was great much longer than others had experienced. with the printer we always tried to keep the humidity just over 40 percent year round and temp high 60's down in the basement

    Preciso do drive de instalação

    The signpal ultra is made by GCC - uscutter does not sell gcc and doesn't have the drivers

    paper tape flexes - clear doesn't and why it tunnels much like metallic vinyls that don't give

    Your plotter will only cut vector images, the ones you are importing are Raster and would need traced into vector format.

    MH871 Problem Cutting

    I agree with skeeter on too much blade exposure, we see that a lot with the skipping along with broken tips and cutting strips in poor condition from use with too much blade exposure

    Never used that tape I use 4076rla but then again I don’t do walls. Hopefully someone the is still around that does walls will chime in. They seem to come and go quickly in that specialized area after being burned a few times

    not sure who is giving your advice but with about 95 percent certainty I can say it is your clear tape - never used clear app tape - leave it for the crafting group and not things you sell and ship. Wall decals are a tricky thing to sell - people will try to adhere it to easy clean paint, rough surface etc and blame your product when it doesn't adhere - seen way too many on here go thru that over the years

    Looking for a someone who prints banners

    Norton anti virus blocks site as unsafe. . . got to say I am suspicious to say the least of someone that signs up and advertises service as their first post on a thread from 2 years ago

    Curved name around object

    learning a new software is tough but once you get used to the new interface think you will really like it better. both uscutter and futurecorp that owns VM has LOTS of videos on youtube if that helps . . . .

    we all get snippy from time to time but now and then some friends remind me to be civil when I have an off day. I agree that with 4 years and a shop this is a simple everyday type item that a crafter might not know but we have to remain civil. with that said it shouldn't be long before I fall off the wagon after checking someone else :O

    Artwork Conversion

    remember that photoshop is for raster graphics and you need to redesign it in vector graphics - charge for your design time and make sure the project makes sense financially before starting. there are thousands of plotters in every corner of every state now and banners became so cheap by large scale printers that it didn't make sense for me to do them when I owned a printer. the amount we could charge 15 or even 8 years ago made it an easy choice - now with people willing to work (and design) for nothing it gets harder to take on these projects. I have sold on clean graphics for years and less and less people care about how clean it is as long as it is cheap :/

  20. for it to cut on your laptop you would need to install the usb emulation drivers on the laptop - when going back to the pc the port probably got changed in your device manager in whatever program you are using to an incorrect setting. Welcome from the usa the drivers are on the main uscutter site under support and legacy cutters
  21. we almost never see components fail - over the last 10 years maybe seen 3 mainboards as opposed to hundreds for the mh series. other than that the only thing they need is new blades, occasional cutting strip and keep them out of the rain

    Configuration conflict

    each program will have it's own section to select the port so same port can be selected in each program. but like skeeter said and I alluded to earlier I do not see a driver in signlab for the titan nor sega plotters so not sure how you are getting it to work at all in signlab

    Configuration conflict

    does it even support saga or uscutter plotters? looking on their web site I don't see them listed if it did cut in signlab before I would recheck which port it currently shows as that might have changed and no longer the correct port

    Replacement blades

    probably was the 60 degree cleancut brand blades, the majority (not all) of us old timers use those exclusively. for shipping internationally I would call them direct
