  1. What is your blade offset? Do you have gouges and scratches in your cutting strip?
  2. Instructions are above this post. And it works, follow them.
  3. why are you using 1 mm for blade depth? Follow my blade depth instructions, that I have posted many times. It does work. Others have told you that also. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and 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 the blade tip out of the blade holder.

    It looks like they don't have their blade offset set either. That cheap cutter wouldn't have blade offset on the cutter.

    Vinyl colors

    Colors depend on what your business is going to be or what is it leaning towards. . Only you know that. My biggest colors are Black, silver, white, red.

    Who "owns" designs?

    The Original logo is the clients. They have that design already. Fishbone statement. " Over the years he wanted some new designs and I made up a bunch". Those designs belong to FishBone, not the client according to the PM I sent.
  7. PM sent. I have sent others there also. and they are very happy with the blades
  8. I buy all of my Graphtec blades from Seiki, and I have never had problems, been using them for 8 years and they last me around 9 months, 5 blades for around $22-24 Free ship. They are out of Sparks NV.
  9. It does not look like it is cutting smooth, just by the vinyl sticking up, it looks like too much blade. You need to get spare blades. Another way that Graphtec told me to set blade depth. Turn the blade all the way in, Get down eye level with the blade. Turn the blade out just until you see daylight between holder and the cutting strip. That is all you need. You should be able to see the angle of the blade to see which you are using. Nothing else I know to help.
  10. I hope your using a 60 degree blade.
  11. There is nothing more that I can help you with.
  12. follow my instructions for setting the blade depth. It works. I have posted it hundreds of times.
  13. How did you set your blade depth? That material may need a new blade, because it looks pretty stretchy.
  14. You did not place your weed lines thru the text, you put them around it.
  15. This is in Graphtec Pro Studio. After you get to the CUT/PLOT screen, go up to the upper left hand corner under The cutter name. and under Properties. Click the Icon that looks like a Blade. There you will find your weedline choices. When you click it, you will see red lines going thru your design showing where it is going to place the weedlines. The cutter will cut those weed lines and make weeding much more easier. Pic enclosed

    Blade Depth

    This is the 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 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 the blade tip out of the blade holder. You should only be cutting with the very tip of the blade. Most vinyl is only 2-3 mil thick. so it only takes the very tip of the blade to cut.
  17. Start with your blade depth. To start with, you should set your blade depth correctly, by taking the blade holder out of the machine, and 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.

Most vinyl is only 2-3 mil thick. so it only takes the very tip of the blade to cut. Blade offset is ZERO on a Graphtec, Cut small text slow. Why not use weed lines thru that text? It makes it a lot easier to weed. And what brand of vinyl is that? And if your not doing it, you need to weed your designs right away. As vinyl will self heal its self. Weeding is a 2 handed job, It may take holding letters down while your pulling the vinyl away. I would not be trying to weed all 3 of those rows at 1 time.

    Signblazer is not supposed to show up in device manager. What is the com port number for the Tripplite Keyspan Adapter? that is what your looking for in device manager. . Take that number and go into the cutter set up in Signblazer and put it on that com port number. Those numbers have to match.
  19. Youtube has a good video for the FC and Cutting Master 3, The same would apply to the CE, Graphtec has several different videos on youtube Check for a video for the CE. Are you putting your paper on a cutting mat? Just wondering, as if you don't, you will be cutting up your teflon cutting strip cutting paper like that. Practice with the pen tool instead of the blade.

    There is only 1 brand of Keyspan adapter and it is called Tripp-lite. Is that what you have? Other cheap usb to serial adapters will not work with a vinyl cutter. Then you connect the null modem cable that came with your cutter to the Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter and to your vinyl cutter. It is not a printer. It is a vinyl cutter/plottter. This is a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter, Is this what you have? Go into your device manager and click on the com port that shows for it and make sure there is not a ? beside it. If there is the driver is not installed. There are videos on youtube on how to install a Tripp-lite Keyspan Adapter to your computer. Do searches. Restart your computer after you install it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tripp-Lite-USA-19HS-USB-Serial-Adapter-by-KEYSPAN-DB9-RS-232/163866962211?epid=2069831655&hash=item26273b6923:g:3~UAAOSwmsJdgLIL

    Plotter Software

    Check around for used Gerber vinyl cutters, if that could be an option. There is a couple used Gerber Envision 750 vinyl cutters up on Ebay right now. $1950 plus ship

    No mention of cutting software. Match the com port number in computer device manager, with com port number in your cutting software.
