    Reverse Vinyl

    Most all of your VINYLS are UV protected...the problem is the adhesive which would be facing the outside/sun. The adhesive would have to be specially made to stand up to the UV...I don't know of any. Sue2

    "Would any one have a good high res image of this eagle? I need to print it out in large format on my versacamm. Thanks" Wait...you did originally ask for a copy of the file to print....not how to locate the copyright owner. Sue2

    Time to Upgrade Cutter

    If you are seriously looking at long-term...then Graphtec is your best choice. None of us like to learn the ins & outs of new equipment. We are all faster and more comfortable with equipment we have used for a while... so looking at another upgrade 2 years down the road isn't practical. Invest in your TIME .......spend the extra now and be done with it Sue2

    Any help getting these able to be cut?

    Someone may happen to have this badge already in vector...but there are many variations of it...here is one variation: https://www.vecteezy.com/vector-art/143568-police-department-badges Also SeekLogo.com has several badges available in vector. As for the font...Intrique Script is very close...you would need to adjust the "B"

    Except for the last "s" LydianOpti Cursive (Regular *Oblique) Is very close.... The connecting (spacing & welding) YOU have to do in your graphics program.

    Design alignment.

    I too get overly intent on the centering & straightness of a shirt graphic. BUT, take a minute to put that shirt on after it's pressed.... the body beneath the shirt affects how the shirt hangs....and what the graphic looks like......no two bodies are alike either! SO, unless you are WAY off on the placement, most customers will not notice a slight shift one way or another. Just my experience.....but, I happen to have a good eye for straight and centered....others may not. Sue2

    Hi and thank you

    As above...Siser EasyWeed is by far the easiest HTV to deal with and a good "feel". I was lucky, many years ago I found a used Hotronix 16 x 20 heat press & Cap Press locally... Then, someone on this forum was going out of business and selling their stock of HTV. What a bounty! Multitude of colors and brands.... I haven't had to buy anything but black & white for quite a while. Sue2

    Hi and thank you

    It's already in your blood.....you will do fine. Now you need a good heat press! T-shirts are REALLY fun! Sue2
  22. Actually, I primarily run a small print & copy shop...(cut vinyl & HTV are add-ons) and we have both Corel & Illustrator available to use. But the need to be able to create scalable vectors is necessary in printing also for logos, banners, garments...etc. Like Dave, I use Corel mostly because of speed and ease of use. I especially appreciate the fact that all graphics/photos used in a file are actually a part of that file and not linked to outside sources. I have noticed that Vinyl Master has very similar commands & actions as Corel.....that MAY be a good reason to try Corel first. Sue2
  23. You don't need the newest...I can use CorelDraw X4 on my Windows 7 machine. But I also have X7 on my laptop.
  24. "Easy to use" depends on the user. Everyone will have their favorite programs. No matter what programs you choose for designing & cutting you will have to spend time learning the "Ins & Outs" of how to create and cut your vectors. This learning curve takes time and effort. It doesn't come without it. For myself, I prefer CorelDraw over Illustrator for creating my vectors. SignBlazer is a nice cut program but I fear its life is limited with advancing technology. VM Cut works fine for cutting my Corel files. Just my 2 cents. Sue2
