  1. I gave up on inkjet printers because I never used them enough to keep the heads from clogging. I switched to this and LOVE it. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/canon-color-imageclass-mf632cdw-wireless-color-all-in-one-printer/5746102.p?skuId=5746102&ref=212&loc=1&extStoreId=1763&ds_rl=1266837&ref=212&loc=1&ds_rl=1266837&gclid=CjwKCAiAo8jgBRAVEiwAJUXKqAmLTMBs7HBBTDWrGQ8EREgrqahnKC2IFA9Qhp-ZtHuAWRs06Nw26hoCN9cQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds I never have to worry about clogged heads again. It can sit for months and still works great. Yea toner is more expensive but at my current rate it's going to be another few years before I need to buy toner.

    I could use some help

    I'm trying to vector this logo and I have NO idea what the font is for Inspired. I've been ask to do vehicle magnets for the whole company but the Marketing director is a big pain to work with. She has no idea what the fonts are. Also how did they do the line under it in the brushed stroke? Thanks for any help.

    Thanks Nero. I ended up just getting a good trace and sent it off to get printed. The customer loved it.

    Need an idea for trailers

    I have a company that needs temporary signs for their trailers. Something along the lines of a car magnet but the problem is the of course the trailer is aluminium. Does anyone have any ideas what could work? I don't think coloplast signs and suction cups would last very long because they'll be driving around with them on. They just need something with their logo, phone #, and CRC #.

    Help needed! Applying transfer tape to large vinyl

    I've learned to do it a different way without the need for extra tools. I have my transfer tape setup so it unrolls with the sticky side up. I roll the long graphics up and only stick about 1-2' down onto the transfer tape and squeegee it down from the back of the graphic. from there I just have to pull more tape out, roll the graphic out, and squeegee the back. Doing it this way you don't need a crazy wide table. I've done a 12' long graphic this way and it was so easy. After I'm done I'll flip everything over so the transfer tape is up and I'll squeegee it again just for good measures.
  7. After searching here it's been awhile since Etsy has been mentioned. Alot has changed with how etsy works. I'm going into month 2 of my etsy store and I'm not sure I've got things set up right. I'm only getting about 3-5 views a day and I'm paying for about half of those views by promoting listings. I know it's a bit early to be expecting anything big but I was hoping for alittle more traffic and maybe 1 order for father's day. Would anyone be willing to coach me and give me some advice? Here's my store www.etsy.com/shop/GoCCreations Any other selling platforms I should be thinking about? I was thinking about maybe a website but I'm not sure I want to spend $30/month for one if I can't even get a single order on etsy.

    A few more cell phone stands

    I'm getting close to buying a Shapeoko soon. Once I sell a few more signs. It'll be so nice to do all the routing for the signs with a CNC.

    Who's selling on Etsy

    Any suggestions for other selling platforms. Do you see my signs selling on Ebay? I'm just not sure which way to go. That's always been my problem. I can make pretty cool products and everyone loves them. I just can't figure out how to sell them. Yep just saw that email. They jumped from 3.5% to 5%. that's a pretty big jump and they tried to sugarcoat it by saying they're adding all these new features. But they didn't go into detail that these new features would require a monthly subscription. Fun.

    Remembering our friend, MR 300

    I'm sorry I never made the time to take a drive down there to meet him and his beloved mustang. We talked about it. I missing seeing all the work he did for his veteran group. I remember seeing an article about the story of him getting wounded. Anyone remember where that was?

    Color Match

    If your customers are going to be that picky then you should really invest in color guides from each manufacture. It's the only way to truly get as close of a match as possible.

    Shameless plug but I finally set up a selling platform. I'm on etsy. I'm adding new listings everyday. Lets see where this goes. https://www.etsy.com/shop/GoCCreations

    where is my vectorizer button at?

    Click the little arrow that's pointing to the right in the toolbar. That should expand the and give you more options in the menu.

    Cutting Oulined words

    Just uncheck the box that says "Keep Holes". This will give you just an outline of the letters without the inside holes.

    Graphtech CE lite-50

    I don't see your reasoning.............. Why waste your time with 2 cutters. If you want to upgrade "UPGRADE" to a cutter you're going to be happy with. 1 that'll do everything you want. Small -> Large vinyl. I hear they you want to upgrade but you don't really want to upgrade if you're still planning on using the titan. You're going to get the baby graphtec and see how well it works and wish you had just bitten the bullet and bought the CE6000-60. Trust me.

    Graphtech CE lite-50

    The only problem I see with it is the fact that it has a max wide of 20". That pretty much means your only option is 15" vinyl. That's not worth $900 to me.
