  1. I need to vent! I made a two sided 2' x 3' coroplast sign to encourage residents & passersby in this corona virus pandemic. I put it out in front of our business yesterday at 2 PM and it was stolen during the night! REALLY PEOPLE???? Hard to believe someone would be so crass as to steal this attitude lifter. So, now I am printing window signs that will be mounted inside . . . it's not the same visually but it will have to do...I don't have extra cash to waste on another outside sign. Sue2

    Authorization to Keep Business Open

    Great idea.... I've been trying to come up with a humorous t-shirt concerning the virus....THAT could work! I'm wearing my "Patience Tested" t-shirt today....it's appropriate as business is near nil!
  5. How small? I have a Graphtec 6000 and was impressed how well my machine cut this swirly floral design that my sister picked out. That's the tip of an X-acto blade. Of course, the cutter blade was nice and sharp and I used Siser EW. But this was still a job to weed! 1/4 inch is about as small as I want to cut lettering.

    Which software do I buy?

    I would say no one program can cover everything perfectly. The more "tools" you have in your toolbox, the more options you have. I regularly use CorelDraw for layouts, flyers, vectors and so forth. But for photo editing I prefer Photoshop over Corel's PhotoPaint. And for brochures InDesign is ideal. Publisher is good for newsletters....but has no graphic editing. So, plan on eventually having several programs to cover all you do. Start with one that covers most of your needs and learn it well.

    jpeg to svg..free site?

    I tried that site on a couple of easy traces and the vectors were coarse. They would need a lot of cleaning up... I could trace it myself with better detail.

    Design software

    My "go to" program is CorelDraw. It's quite versatile as you can create both raster and vector designs, flyers, etc.... I have Illustrator but have never been comfortable with it...too intricate for what I do. PLUS, I don't like their new "rental" only program... At least you can still buy a disk for Corel.

    Help identifying this font

    Find My Font says: Becka Script Com (Regular)
  10. Need some advice...I have a customer that wants his company name LARGE on the long sleeves of hoodies.....PIA! Do you all charge extra for this type of imprint? Is there a good & easy insert around that will go all the way down the sleeve to cover the sleeve seam? TIA, Sue2

    font matches

    Yes! Find My Font is a great investment......BUT, it can't help if your photos are not sharp, straight and good contrast. Your photos are too fuzzy...and you need more contrast. There are plenty of FREE font sites...find a similar font and make your own design.

    Plotter/Cutter Type

    Yup...looks pretty much like my old Laserpoint 2.

    ISO Distressed Flag

    Study several flags similar to what you need online and then make your own to work for your project .....that's what I usually do.

    Design Space in Cricut

    Not many of us have any experience using the home craft cutters ( Cricut, Silhouette, Brother) or their programs so it's hard to answer your question.
