    There you go, too many bad blade depth instructions out there that we can't get rid of. Your welcome.

    MHMK2 Jagged cuts

    Not too many old timers on here use the MH cutter. I am giving you the basic settings to set up any vinyl cutter. I think some have the baud rate at 9600. Start slow until you learn your cutter. Your force is determined after you set your blade depth correctly. Is there tape over over the teflon cutting strip? I have heard that some cutters come with tape over them , that must be removed before cutting.

    How did you set your blade depth? That is the first thing that has to be correct. Don't use instructions that have to do with using a credit card thickness or post it notes. Make sure tip on blade isn't broken. Are there scratches and gouges in the cutting strip? This is correct way to set your blade depth. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and in your hand, firmly cut across a piece of scrap vinyl, you will be cutting. You should only be cutting the vinyl and barely a mark on wax paper backing, Adjust blade to get there, Then put the blade holder back in machine, and use the force of the machine to get there, same results, only cutting the vinyl and barely a mark in wax paper backing. You should just barely see and feel your blade tip out of the blade holder.

    Shelf life of wall decals with application tape applied?

    As I stated before, I don't do wall decals, which are mostly matte vinyl. Ask your manufacturer what they use for their vinyl on walls. We don't have that brand here that I know of. I use Oracal 651 vinyl. with Main medium/ and high tack paper tape. The only matte vinyl that I use is matte black/ not for walls.

    HELP. CUTTER STOPS MID CUT

    Does it do the same thing if you use the pen tool on paper? If not, then yes, probably static from the vinyl.. If it still does it, then take a look at your design, for stray nodes. Or a different USB cable.

    You stated you are using Matte vinyl. Not all transfer tape works well with matte vinyl. Oracal has transfer tape just for inside matte vinyl. And it is high tack. Also, You don't pick the vinyl off of the backing. You should squeegee the top transfer tape real good. Turn the decal face down on the transfer tape and peel away the wax paper backing, It makes a big difference. If you try lifting the vinyl off the backing, the transfer tape can just lift off, and you lose the sticky of the tape, as well as the vinyl can just lift up the wax paper backing. Then you will have paper stuck to the decal. Trying to pick up vinyl, may lose some of the design to the backing paper. It will be stuck.

  8. I imported that same kash222.eps into Vinylmaster demo and got the same picture as I posted above. I can see a dotted line box going above the top and to below the bottom of that design that you have posted. That is your extra space. I would just start over and make a new file.
  9. I don't know what your doing, this is what is on the file that you sent. That's it. I have to leave,,,
  10. can you post an .eps of this file?
  11. Take your select tool and only select around the text. Why are you picking up all of that extra space?
  12. The Bottom text doesn't look like it is on wire frame. It looks like solid text. And your screen shots are pretty small.
  13. wireframe is showing the outlines. Showing the nodes. Your vinyl cutter cuts outlines. At the top of the layout screen choose> View> Dropdown box shows up, choose wireframe. Or wireframe modes. You want to look at the outline of the text, and make sure there is nothing else outside the outlines of the text.

    You will have to contact the manufacturer. Most of us keep our supplies in our houses/ or businesses, in temperature controlled, as well as humidity controlled buildings.

    I have over 1000 designs for sale and make them as they are sold. Designs bigger than yours. Not knowing what you are selling, but you will only have a few popular designs that will sell. (Unless you are giving them away). There is a ton of people selling also. You have to create your own niche' to sell, or you will have what everyone else is selling. Vinyl needs to remain at room temps. Look up the specs for your vinyl. You cannot have your vinyl sitting around in cold weather on rolls or after cut. The transfer tape also needs room temps. The warmer the temps the more pliable the vinyl is. The adhesive becomes brittle and won't stick in cold temps.. Paper transfer tape is the way to go. You cannot roll up decals with clear tape, the tape pulls away from the vinyl. Clear tape will not conform to any curves. And you cannot apply clear tape with wet application. I stayed away from wall decals, as there are too many variables with paint and wall surfaces to cause problems and complaints. I don't pre make or pre mask vinyl designs. My vinyl graphics are fresh, With experience it doesn't take long to make them.
  17. I don't know what you are doing, but there is no space around that font. I downloaded the font. Here is the pic in my software. Can you even put it on wireframe?
  18. I am only showing an example. Because I don't have time to price check. All of this time is VERY expensive. Maybe someone else can help you. Goodnight
  19. Here is my old 2006 Toshiba Laptop with XP Here is the slot
  20. Old laptops have them right on the side of the case. It has a door, you just slide it in.
  21. My XP laptops have a slot just for that or a serial card. Because they no longer have serial ports.
  22. You can purchase parallel cards also for laptops. If it has a slot for it. https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-ExpressCard-Laptop-Parallel-Adapter/dp/B001Q7X0W6
  23. It doesn't fit what? What is this cable and where did it come from.
