    Thanks for all of the responses. I have found the font and no longer need it. -Chase

    To everyone here on this forum, by all means, suspect any unsolicited requests for 'sponsor decals'. The corporate customer/product relations departments within companies will send out ....yes, for free, ....decals to anyone who asks. When I built a desert runner from a 70 Bronco, I had inquired to many, many different parts and other sponsors for decals since I told them I was completing a custom build on my truck, they ALL gladly sent me decals...and not just one, either. Do it for your own or closely held friends/acquaintances, but be very cautious, indeed of unsolicited requests. The anti-piracy thugs want your money, and the system wants a pound of flesh. There are too many ideas out there to make a living from, no need to risk it all for a $10 job.

    This grunge/grafitti font

    I have this from an old image I did, and cannot find the font anymore. Does anyone know the name of this font? It was/is a common font found in many font packs. Or perhaps someone could email the file to share. Thanks.

    More Free Vinyl

    Has anyone had luck getting usable samples from FDC? The samples I recieved are little 5"x5" squares.
  8. Who knows of a good supply house that ships free over $75-$100? I just received my shipment from mumpowersupply for 30 18x24 coroplast and the shipping came in @ 12.25, which was about 40% of the invoice. I can see how the added costs of shipping can break a startup. The closest (known) supply house is Fellers in Baton Rouge, but I've crossed them from my list because of the attitude of the phone order taker. My next order will be for 751-851, some banner blanks, and a few sealit pens. How is Beacon Graphics on shipping? Any imput is appreciated. Thanks. -Chase

    Free shipping supply house?

    Thanks. I had already registered with Gregory. I think I'm going to use these guys till another might come along. As for Fellers, the lady(?) I spoke to was quite rude and uncaring. She managed to send me a catalogue which is overpriced in many areas I checked...oracal, r-tape, blades, sealit, pens, ect. Perhaps that's how they offer free shipping over $75. Since they are about 125 miles away in Baton Rouge, I might stop in one day while over in NO. Otherwise, I won't use them. Does mumpowersupply offer free shipping over a set amount?

    NOOB Banner Q's?

    I have a pending request for a banner that my landlady (may) want for a birthday party. I asked her to give me a weeks notice in order to get supplies and design cut for application. Since I've had other inquiries, I want to order some banner supplies. I need help with this. Thanks. *Since the banner mentioned is for a party, I believe a 10 oz would work. I have lots of BGS vinyl that I can (?) use on this....recommended? *Are raw vinyl rolls hemmed and grommeted? How are the bandana 14oz reviews from the forum members? *Gregory Graphics has 164' rolls of 38" 13oz single sided banner material for $85.99. Good price? 2'x6' finished 13oz = $12.19. *Aren't all banners double sided? What is the difference? *Is banner tape used for temporary hems? *How about using the old fashioned mallet and grommet tool to fasten grommets. I'd be curious as to how many people use this method. Any imput is desired. Thanks. -Chase *

    NOOB Banner Q's?

    Thanks BannerJohn for the reply. Is your banner supply private, or could anyone order from them @ $6.?

    US Cutter Grommet Press

    What size are the small grommets that you speak of? I'm finding some on ebay with 7/16 ID. Good?

    punched and unpunched vinyl?

    Does the punch strip take away from the cutting area?

    Type of vinyl to use on boats?

    Others here are saying to use Oracal 851/951 or equivalent. I need to order some good marine vinyl tomorrow, but am still undecided on which color to get because of the expense of marine type cast.

    Free shipping supply house?

    Thanks for all of your imput. I found Gregory Graphics that has free shipping over $100. Scanning the catalog. the prices seem decent....much better than Fellers or even Beacon. I'll give em a call on Monday. Thanks again. -Chase
  17. Kimmy, I tried this same concept while living in my motorhome in San Diego. This is what I've learned from that experience. -Be very organized! As you know RV living can be quite pleasant, however, space must be maintained and organized because of the general lack of it. My set-up was custom; I removed the bench seating on one side and replaced the table with another that extended to the wall. With that, I had much more storage for shop materials and equipment. Even so, the space always 'seemed' cluttered. I managed to run a 24" PCut, 16x20 heat press, Epson 1400 printer, and all of the necessary tools, ect. Most of my work was vintage sci-fi related, so I targeted Roswell, San Jose Bay Area UFO Expo, Inernational UFO Congess @ Laughlin, NV.I had a great time doing it! Sadly, I never made it to Bonneville for the land speed records! Maybe this year. Good luck.....you've got a great idea! -Chase

    For a Noob starting out in the craft, is the shinerite 3 mil a cost effective product coming from the ebay sellers? I bought too much of the BGS from USCutter when I originally bought a PCut. I've been using it for practice; some on my car, others all over the shop. RTape doesn't want to stick to BGS at all. Could this be a bad roll of RTape, or the character of BGS? Since I plan on alot of motorcycle helmet graphics, I'm considering Oracal 751. Your comments would be greatly appreciated. -Chase
  19. Hello everyone! I'm reading great posts about the clarity of CleanCut blades. Which supplier do you guys get them from? The MH series uses Roland type blades, I'm sure they are interchangable, aren't they?
  20. orbitgrfx


    If you're a little worried about paying Fellers list price on the Oracal 651, you can fax them a page from another catalog with a cheaper price, and they will match the price. They will also keep that price on file for you, so you get that price each time. Ordway Sign Supply(www.signsupply.com) has Oracal 651 (15"x10yards) in color for $14.95, fax that baby over to Fellers! I just checked Ordway, and their prices are higher than US Cutter by about a dollar a roll for 15" x 10 yd.

    Free 3M Sample rolls

    A great big thanks to 3M! I just recieved two 54" x 5' sample rolls from 3M. Now, to get them cut to size for the MH871.....How does a guy cut these to size? Any suggestions?

    Where to buy CleanCut blades

    Great!!! Thanks for the super fast response. This is why I've come to love this forum!
  23. What is the vinyl of choice for cutting fine detail pinstriping for retail? Easy weeding is a consideration, also. As for flame graphics on motorcycles and helmets, cast is needed, but which is your preference? As a noob, I'm doing a vinyl order and need advice and direction..... Thanks -Chase
  24. I'm miffed! After all of the searches, I can't seem to locate matte finish cast and calendered vinyl for outdoor/permanent use. Not interested in 631, rather 651/751 quality with a good selection of colors. Any ideas??? Thanks -Chase

    pinstripe request

    Thanks. I needed one like that for my wall.
