  1. I searched and actually found a post where this exact question was asked, both the poster and another person thanked someone for answering, but the answer was missing from the post. Go figure? I found some other posts that had multiple questions including this and the "What is contour cutting?" question was never answered. Somebody enlighten me.

    Fonts free for commercial use...

    Not all free for commercial use but has a no BS or popups download for each font displayed. The original link in this thread is junk!

    Looking for lost font

    I had this on on my old system and it still shows in the SBD file but I can't find it to duplicate. SB brings up another font and says closest match. Anybody recognize or know the name of it?

    Reflective Vinyl Cutting/Weeding Tips

    I have some 3M reflective vinyl and cut it on an old P-cut. I have to expose my blade a little deeper and set my press to 150 on that machine. I have to reset my depth and press for the different materials all the time. I usually use 100 to 120 press on regular products.
  6. Any way to stop this confounded "Do you want to receive notifications" from popping up on every click? I have tried to answer it not at this time and tried to just close it but I refuse to click yes as I do not want to receive notifications from this or any other web site. Using Firefox 47.0 on Windows 7 Pro

    Receive Notifications popup

    I don't think that option was there or it didn't work when I started the topic. It became available or functional after I turned off all the notification settings in the forum menu and my Firefox also updated itself to version 48 so one of those actions could have made it happen. ORRRRRR a forum admin could have changed a setting so we could stop it. In the case of the latter I say THANKS!

    Receive Notifications popup

    Just had it pop up but this time it had an option to always block notifications. Clicking on that seems to have it gone.

    No change! Turned off all notification settings available.

    using the pen tool with signblazer

    I've done a little drawing with Sign Blazer. I use freezer paper and draw on the non waxed side. Did a long banner once for my wife's Sunday school class to color in the letters. It's good for testing projects before cutting too.

    U.S.Cutter, Ebay, HT55 tape

    Bought my Creation P-cut from ebay auction. I set a budget for myself and kept bidding on different sales till I won one at the price I wanted to pay. Not sure if they even sell cutters at auction any more but they did when I got mine and I saved.

    Got My Cutter In Today Titan 2 28"

    Great looking first cut! I run my old P-Cut through a 10' USB cable I bought at Big Lots years ago. I think I paid < 5 bucks for it.

    Fixing other sign shops mess

    Curious that they would contract someone else a week later. Did they ask the other shop to fix it and get rufused or are they planning to pay them AND you? How much did they pay for the job to start with?

    Signblazer Fonts

    Jaybird, Does that version start and run in full mode now or is it still run in trial mode? PS, I had the wrong link to that above. I went back and fixed it I think.

    a few misc items

    Nice looking work. Yeah I was thinking Anheiser Bush would probably pay them for the ad rather than complain about any copywrite.
  17. Those look really nice. Care to explain the rust removal process you used?

    Signblazer Fonts

    This is kind of the same stuff we have talked about but worth reading to see if it helps. What version of Signblazer are you running on the laptop? I recently installed the cracked version on a windows 7 machine that uses all the SB fonts and sees them from their native sbfonts folder. You might try uninstalling the program and try that one if you aren't already running it to see if that works. You can get to it from this link. I just read where the US Cutter version no longer has nags too but I haven't tried it.

    Signblazer Fonts

    I don't know how windows 8 works. In XP sometimes you had to use the font installation from the toolbar. I added a font to my Windows 7 the other day and tried to drag it from the opened zip file and it wouldn't work. I drug it from the zip file to the desktop and then in to the windows font folder and it popped up a little window telling me it was installing it and then it worked. It seems like they should work from the sbfonts folder they were installed to. Windows is funny like that. Sometimes you can just drag fonts into the folder and get them to work and other times not. Try dragging one of them to a folder on the C drive then drag it into the font folder and see if that works. Wish I could be more help but it may just be trial and error.

    Signblazer Fonts

    I magine the difference here is how windows 8 works as opposed to 7 but that is just a guess since it seems to be the primary variable.

    Signblazer Fonts

    SB font names are not shown in the file folder but the file name is shown after the font name in the dropdown list in the program. Shelly Advant is file SBF_S040 Slogan is file SBF_S015 Reporter is file SBF_R043 Roys Tango is file SBF_R017 Murry Hill Bold is file SBF_M026 All should be in C:\Program Files\Cutting Technologies\SignBlazer Elements\sbfonts on a standard install. Don't know why they would show on one system and not another. I would just copy the sbfonts folder from the PC on a flash drive and copy it to your laptop in the apropriate location. You should be able to copy and paste the path I put above in the address bar of windows explorer and get to it. Or you can search for sbfonts and it will find the location for you in case one got installed to a different drive location or something.

    Wax over vinyl?

    I did lemans stripes on one of my Mustangs and a detail shop ruined them with some black wax. Don't know what the guy was thinking putting black wax on gold stripes but it destroyed them. Can't remember the brand vinyl but it was 7 year cast I bought from Beacon. I think 3M specifically warns against using colored wax on any of their vinyl.
