    Arty-RC - batten down the hatches and stay safe

    Very anticlimactic. Nothing more then some short heavy thunder storms. The rest of the time the weather has been beautiful.

    Arty-RC - batten down the hatches and stay safe

    Same here. People are going crazy. gas stations without gas, and empty grocery store shelves. I messed up 2 years ago and wasn't prepared for Irma. NOT this time. I have a generator now that plugs directly into the side of the house and I can power most everything. Flashlights are ready, power banks are charged, food in the pantry with plenty of propane to cook. unfortunately I happen to be on call at the hospital this week so that means I have to stay there during the storm. But again I'm prepared and have an air mattress ready for my wife, son, and myself as well as anything else we need. It's funny because the last time we went through this my wife was 8 months pregnant with my son. Now he gets to join in on the fun.

    Friendly Reminder

    Everything I have is backed up in real time to multiple places using a program called All-sync. I just added a 10TB external hard drive to the mix also.

  6. Wait........... 2-10 cars a month. Why are you even bothering getting a plotter. For that volume of cars you should be keeping it old school and just cut by hand. It makes way better business sense to do that. There's a reason tint plotters cost so much. It's for high volume shops that need to knock cars out fast because they have 15-20 cars a day to do. It's going to take you 1-2 years to pay off, and it's a used plotter of all things. I've helped run my brother's window tint shop and after 25 years of window tinting he's still cutting by hand because it makes a much better install. Tighter edges, more tucked into the window jam, and the rear windows come out better. When you shrink the rear window it's alittle unpredictable and if it's already cut you're likely to shrink it too much in the wrong areas and have to start over. Yea it's "cool" to have a plotter but a complete waste for 2-10 cars a month.

    Best Transfer Tape

    Here's what I use. RTape Conform Series 4076-RLA It's a high tack paper transfer paper.

    First Video I've made

    I just got a gopro camera setup because I wanted to start making videos. I had a trailer install yesterday and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to use it. It's nothing crazy. I'm a SUPER newbie and just starting off. Let me know what you think? https://youtu.be/I38Hl1U7Sb8

    First Video I've made

    I'm using RTape 4076-RLA. I spray it mostly out of habit when I use to apply wet with rapid-tack. It would take forever to dry and wetting the outside of the tape helped release it. Now, as you can see, I apply everything dry. since the tape is a high tack and it helps alittle.

    Yep. I want to start vlogging my car repairs also. My 1st project is replacing the transmission in the SRT8 300. I decided to trash itself a few weeks ago.
  12. I don't know what's going on but I have a order for Heather: Red, Blue, Green, pink, and purple. I've been looking at all 3 of my vendors and they either don't have a color in any sizes or they don't have certain size. Preferred vendor is Sanmar or S&S. Preferred brands are Port and company or anvil. Does anyone have a good lead on these heather shirts?

    How is this made? CNC Router?

    No way it's done on a laser. It's made with a CNC and a V-bit. there's no way a laser can create that much of a ramp on the letters.

    Hi Everyone!

    This is my personal opinion. You're starting off with WAY too much. For example why do you need 15" and 24" paint mask? Going down the list...... - Drop the cutting strips until you need them. Graphtec is a super nice machine and you won't be cutting into the strip if you leave the sensors on. - Just get the 24" roll of paint mask if you're really going to use it. It sounds like you're most interested in shirts. I'd stick with vinyl and shirt tell you learn the trade then dive into paint mask. - Drop the Poli-flex and just stick with the tried and true siser easyweed. - Drop the Orafol plotter sample pack, Oracal 631, and all the transfer tape you have in your cart. -I'd get a 24" roll of Oracal 751 in black and white, Few colors in 651, Rtape 4076-RLA transfer tape (I like 30" wide rolls). Learn on the basics: good vinyl, good paper transfer tape Those would be my suggestions. You'll get overwhelmed with all you've got going on. It might look easy but just trying to apply transfer tape can be hard for a beginner.

    It's the 1st of the month..

    Allways Sync is a kick ass program. You can schedule backups to ANYTHING. You can also backup in real time. It'll completely sync an drives or folders. I use it to sync everything business with my harddrive, dropbox, USB drive, and backup network drive.

    Who doesn't have a window tint guy? Mine just happens to be my brother who's been tinting for 22 years.

    It's been OK. I really haven't been putting much effort into it. I've made about 18 sales on my 28 listings. The more I look at it the more I think these types of signs are really only going to sell during the Christmas holiday. I may pickup a sale from someone looking to give a birthday present but that's about it. It's a great platform but you really have to do your homework and you HAVE to have a niche. Etsy has grown too much for you to be selling the same things as everyone else. Yep....... what he said.

    What do you use?

    So far Vinyl Master has been the best auto trace software that I've used. It's just as good or better than Vector Magic and beats inkscape hands down.

    A Quick Reminder

    I have windows do a backup every night to a WD 6tb external hard-drive. I also subscribe to dropbox. Everything I do is saved on the computer and dropbox cloud in realtime.

    And here are a few 3d lettering signs I made for family members. All hand finished by myself. I'm going to work on creating a line of these signs for anniversaries and weddings.
