    welcome, I see that the material is 7mil, and reflective can be demanding long term on machines.. I think you are correct to go the servo route. If these are for vehicles, long lengths etc in reflective- the certainly a used (checked) Graphtec FC or other similar Roland Camm-1 would be suited/ made for those jobs.. you want the long cuts to be clean, tracked well and closed.

    I have had success with ecrater stores- limited layouts- but darn near free to use.

    Mark, that is actually a very nice trace for first round -- I looked at in CS6 and Omega...I would thermal print spot white and the tan color on clear for smaller decals. But for a large window, layered vinyl onsite would work best, or eco-solvent print. Primal I will run a sample for small ones if you are interested.

    Here you go - this would be a first trace of the numbers on the outline. - It could use some node editing. 26 First Trace.svg 26 First Trace.eps 26 First Trace.ai

    yes- nice angle-- If I have a chance tonight I can give it a shot-- - unless someone beats me to it. FYI Inkscape ( A free vector software download) would probably give good results, with minimal node cleanup.

    someone may be able to but the issue is the angle of the photo- it would be distorted... Also...there is a name of a vinyl and graphics company just above the number?

    VEVOR nightmare

    Boy, that really looks like an MH series cutter. You can try and download signblazer, ( links on this site) - and / or see if an MH series driver will run it. maybe someone else can chime in, who has experience.

    Vinyl lifting while cutting

    yes-- the roland you mentioned should be able to handle that project with clean results-- also for fine detail you will find Cast vinyl -751-- cuts and weeds much nicer than 651. while dialing in, practice on scrap with a few small square shapes, and Arial bold letters like TEST for offset. Be sure the cutting strip doesn't have gouges in it.

    751 Vinyl 15 inch

    My experience, the 15 inch 751 that I order comes in its own box - its punched vinyl. Sometimes the box is an oracal one- other times its in a plain brown box.
  21. Ok then-- make black layer, and include the crop marks as black vinyl-- weed and then apply whole thing to white vinyl. - Place in machine then cut the next layer, which would read the crop marks and then cut the squares. verify that your software has this capability-- reading crop marks, and transferring a "bank" of decals to the white will be the hardest parts--i.e. The other solution may be to have them printed ( thermal / eco-solvent) if they are for outdoor. try and install the finished product yourself also - see if end result would be acceptable to your customers.
  22. Would this be for a couple of designs for yourself on your vehicle, or would you wish to offer for sale? If its your own vehicle - you can just layer it on the bumper / window-- easiest. If you want to layer them in your shop, t--o ship out you can try with the parchment paper method -- search forum (by member Wildgoose). If you want to cut and weed a grid of decals - overlay them all on say 24 inch white at once--THEN contour cut 3 x 11--- that will be tricky - Can your cutter and software read "Crop" marks? If you try and guess on the origin for final finish cut - the alignment for the squares wont be precise.
