  1. I have been charging per square inch, but if I do not have a small piece of vinyl, I end up having to cut it off a wide roll. This has created scrap pieces (which I do not throw out). It's just that my scrap pile has grown and I am looking at it as lost money. what does everyone else do? For example.....customer wants a 6"x6" decal in bright pink. I do not have a small piece in my basket. I have to cut it off a 24" roll. this leaves me with a 7" x 18" piece of scrap and who know when I will ever use it again? A 6" decal will cost my customer $8, but I have a big piece left over, that hopefully I will use, but no promises. Just need a little advice on how to handle this, or is this just something that you have to deal with.

    SIGNBLAZER HOTSHOT.... do you want it?

    I also would like to know more about this. I lost my complete computer and setup, so now I am back to having to watch the trial countdown again. I lost over 10K graphics, along with all my t-shirt designs and customer files. Had to start over from scratch. Still re-drawing all my graphics.....
  3. I have lost EVERYTHING on my computer. I have no clue where my disk is for my LP24. Does anyone have it? I am desperate and have orders that have to get out.

    Whats your workspace look like?

    I am stuffed in a 10 x 12 room, with three tables, a cutter, a heat press, four milk cartons of vinyl, a wireless printer, two chairs, a light table and two dogs.............

    T-shirt experiment

    Very nice idea. Isn't is weird how accidents turn into great ideas?!

    couple things

    Dan, was that anywhere near Sophia? I used to live in Sophia and much of my family is still there. My grandfather helped organize the unions in the mines before he moved up here to work.

    How do you know how much to outline or inline

    I start out with a 0.125 and work my way up from there. If I want something thicker, I just Ctrl-Z and re-do it with a larger outline. 0.125 is a 1/8 outline, so work from there. Be careful though, too much outline really take away from the pic. Good Luck!!

    Your install method was interesting. It doesn't matter how we all install the products. As long as the end result is the same. I have to use a step stool to do windshield installs. I split the backer paper in half before I install so I can do one side, then the other. I am only 5ft6in, so I'm too short to work on them without that little step ladder.
  9. I have a spreadsheet that I have created that calculates using their multipliers. If you want a copy, send me a message with your email address and I will send you the excel file. I can't post it here.
  10. I have a folder named graphics. In there I have about a dozen sub folders, such as animals, logos, vehicles, hunting/fishing, racing, tribal, etc..... Then, my graphics are numbered from there. That way, when someone orders from the catalog, they can tell me animal #27 and there's no problem. I also have a folder for t-shirt sayings, they just tell me the number of the t-shirt saying.

    Those look absolutely incredible. I went to study with a guy called The Wizard from Florida. He works with Mike Lavallee. He taught me true fire and the eight layer method. I have only done it a few times, but it keeps getting better every time. YOUR work is absolutely incredible!!!!!!!!!

  15. Dakota, You almost forgot one thing....... the hat made from tinfoil....... FBI------pffft Let's just exaggerate the entire incident. USC (Levi) has been in my computer more than a few times and it's always had a good turn out. Maybe, just maybe, the computer the tech was working on had a windows3.1 op sys and the tech wasn't born when that dinosaur was out.......LMAO
