    Some work for family brewery

    Welcome aboard. Nice work, looks like you are off to a great start. Hope the brewery does well too!
  3. I do not understand the part about "drive from AI CS5.1". From the ECS site you linked to it looks like you plan to design in AI, import the design to ECS and then cut. You can do this with some of the machines sold by USCutter like the SC2 using the Sure Cuts A Lot program with a Mac. Welcome aboard by the way,

    Welcome aboard Derril. And what did you fix on the Graphtec?

    How will this cut?

    Not to mention the install of a graphic of 20 feet compared to 3-4'

    How will this cut?

    That is interesting s&d, what cutting program are you using and where is this command located? btw, I am using scalp 3. don't know if it is in that one or not. Thanks

    Anyone can shop at Goodwill/Salvation Army.
  8. Are the new blades the same degree angle as the old one?

    Very cool Soren. If it weren't so far I would come, with my Mopar of course.

    Were you wearing a mask when you did this Arty?
  11. KDM - I agree with haumana, that you are to be commended for giving AI a shot. Regarding the cut of that design, though, gets back to what Mz Skeeter was trying to help you with. AI does not tell your machine how to cut, or how deep to cut - or anything other than where to cut, from this point to that point. If you have a second layer in your design, the machine is still only being told to cut from point A to point B a second or third time. If your blade depth is set correctly, a second cut or even a third cut on the same path will not cut through the backing paper. That is from the voice of experience... I usually always do designs with the pen tool first, and that is one of the reasons why.

    Hello to the both of you, and welcome aboard.

    how are they selling so cheap?

    Not just the vinyl world, any business operated as a "sole proprietorship".

    Small Lettering

    Shane, that is a huge difference. Did you have to adjust your offset or overcut when you switched blades?
