    Yes it was on the curves of the smaller letters.With a little very thin oil like WD/40 Or 3n1 oil Worked into the little bearings works well.We havent had any trouble since I hope this helps It was very frustrating and made it impossible to do perfect work.

    Question about coffee mugs

    Ink sublimation is the only way I know that you can get a fade free print or picture on a mug or whatever you transfer too. Sublimation products do have a special coating to transfer ink to.Its a great way to start a business we make good money on promotional items and such.hope this helps some........ Dan svsignworks

    I didnt have WD-40 but i had some Abu-Garcia fishing reel lube which is like 3-n-1 Oil ..... so i took my holder apart and put a drop of lube in the tiny bearing.cleaned the pin and blade with alcohol.I also set my blade pressure and depth as outlined in the video and help section in this forum.My wife says that the cutter works better now.It will work even better when the new needle blades get here tommorrow.Thanks for all of your help Dan & Dawn

    Graphic Charges

    We have run into this on occasion with a sign shop in our small town.We now tell the person up front that its our artwork and make them payfor it before it leaves.we are at 45.00 and hour.If you gave him a disc of the artwork you can copy and paste the us copyright. laws to it.I stopped the guy in out town in his tracks with this.It is kind of an unwritten thing between companies not to produce anything from anoter companies artwork.I hope this helps Dan @ svsignworks
