    Here's a quick, 2 color redraw... Perhaps it can Help you. It's far from perfect but the Price is Right ! NFDA_02b.svg NFDA_02b.eps edit: "Norwich Family Dental Associates" that appears below your posted image looks to be either Times New Roman (bold italic) or the similar, Adobe Caslon ?

    Yup... Figuring out what works best for one's Workflow & Budget is a big deal for a shop. What may work perfect for one may be disaster for another. I print just a few Positives a week to burn Screens with and the OEM Epson pigment inks Print fine, solid Transparencies for the Halftone work, without breaking the Bank. Also have no issues with Chip Reset Workarounds & Schemes.

    Agreed... Wise to stick with the Quality Products and Workmanship. The Graphics Industry has been swept the way of so many other Products and Services these days. Our World is flush with Walmart Mentality and Confusion of Low Price / Good Value.

    There must be a large number of shops using poor quality inks and substrate then. I see a lot of Printed Vinyl that's faded and/or cracked. (or perhaps the Custy's aren't taking proper care of it?)

    I'm with you there, Dakota. I stick to OEM inks in my Epsons as well.

    Sorry, admittedly, I just scanned the Headings. I have to agree with you though Bevins... from what I know about desktop inkjet inks and PU and PolyVinyls, doesn't seem likely that the inks would adhere well or for very long. Seems like they haven't even really perfected the ecosolvent vinyl printing from the amount of it I see fading and peeling.

    It does exist... Here are a few ads for "Inkjet Printable HTV";

    Technical answer to that is, HTV is not Vinyl... It's Polyurethane. Here's a short article that calls out a few of the differences; And I also saw an ad for Inkjet Printable HTV a while back. I can't imagine it holding up but so well.

    Help with Importing Fonts

    Standard Workflow for me is just Drag & Drop Vector files onto a New Document in VinylMaster. My Font files (around 14000 of them Organized into sub-folders) are kept in a Folder on my Hard Drive that I point the Font Manager in Vm to to Browse and/or Add to the Vm Library thru the Font Manager ('Add to Lib' Button). Also, I have had a smoother ride in Vm with ttf (True Type Fonts) than otf (Open Type Fonts). Don't know which Version of Vm you have but, Check the flollowing Vids for more info;

    vectorize logo question

    QUOTE > "if i cant vectorize white colors how do i add white colors where there is no color`?" Take your image into Pixel/Raster based Software such as Photoshop or Gimp and Color the area you are having trouble with to a different Color than the Background. (Inside the white 'Text', in your Example). Re-Vector the adjusted image.
