    Clear Acrylic Keychains

    I've been looking and haven't been able to find them either. My solution? I'm making a mold at work, then gonna cast my own. acrylic is relatively cheap and you can do a lot of keychains with a gallon of resin

    Registration Mark?

    make one that doesn't match any color, then cut it with each color, that way you know its in the same place every time

  4. I'd be right there too, 25 RTA, another 20-25 to install. it really won't take just a few minutes, and if you're worried about messing it up, cut two of it just in case. If I have something simple like that and am doinga mobile install, I'll cut double, then give them a deal if they want the second one.
  5. I'll get you something tonite, gotta go to work for a while
  6. for that quantity I'd probably go $1 each for the 4 inch and $1.50 for the 8 inch. you could look at getting them printed (James does excellent work), sell them for that and put money in your pocket without having cut anything
  7. not quite understanding what you mean by this but if you'll send me the eps or an SB file I'll be glad to take a look at it for you
  8. yes you have to change the blade offset, this is what compensates for the blade not being centered in the holder. start out at .25 and adjust in .05 increments until your cuts are closing good.

    how do i scan an image and cut?

    there are several inkscape tutorials on this forum, just do a search and you'll find everything you need. that said, here's it all in a nutshell for auto-tracing 1: select object (Bitmap picture) 2:from the path menu up top, choose trace bitmap 3: by trying each option and tweeking the settings, use the update to get the best preview for your image. 4: hit ok, the new image will show up superimposed over hte old bitmap 5: select the bitmap and delete it 6: save the new image as a *.eps 7: a little node editing will get the image looking good and ready to cut!!!

    hadn't thought about that, cool idea.

    how do i scan an image and cut?

    when you scan an image you have to convert it by tracing to make it a vector image. you can do this in SB by monochroming then vectorising, but you'll get much better results with Inkscape, and its free!

    Received my 3rd cutter and still problems

    your blade does look like its out a little far, if I look at mine like that I can't even see the blade hardly. course that doesn't explain the problem when plotting. like bannerjohn said, Ican't even make mine do that.
  13. if you have a grand for just the cutter, go with a copam for 7-800, they are professional grade but not quite all the bells and whistles of the graphtecs. If you don't want to spend that much, a refine is a good cutter for the price, mine has lasted very well and I work it every day

    Trouble Pricing

    James had posted that he was going on vacation, but I don't remember the exact days. if he hasn't responded then that's why, normally he's on the ball with everything.

    Great boards

    I can honestly say I've learned most of what I know about the sign business from this forum.
