    For that matter you can just make a sign and hang it behind the door and let it show threw.

    Well best you can do is an outside application plus I'd cut white first and lay it down as a stroke or outline then apply your pink over top. Many other way you can go is put black down the same way as a stroke then apply gold letters and it will pop nicely and last as well as look classy. Other letter colors can be white, silver etc. anything that's going to make the lettering pop and be readable.

    I was just going to say the same thing, you might be lucky to get 2 or 3 months out of it. I done jobs in the past that were only up for 2 months and Uv Rays sure do a number rather quickly on the material. I'd advise the client of this and try to talk to something long term. Educate and sell.

    Your 100 percent correct, drives me batty seeing all the incorrect ones on public safety equipment. Only exception is if the flag is on a pole then it may fly either way but must be attached to a pole, Free standing always star and bars forward! Great reply Ez!

    As much as your area can bear, everyone is a bit different due to cost of living, shop hourly rate etc. I was going to say 95.00 plus gourmets or anything extra but If you 5 a sq. your at 90 so they were close either way.

    Window washer dude?

    Thought I had one on my Trades and Occupation cd but I was wrong, anyone have something that may help me out please?
  12. Glad flipping it over helped you out, couldn't be to many things and that was the next to check. Don't forget to mirror your image also for shirts etc. Also agree with the others that you can get way more detail out of an image with heat press material rather than normal vinyl. The is a small learning curve but not a bad one and also there are a few really good clips on utube for folks doing a walk threw step by step. You'll catch on hang in there.
  13. Are you sure your not trying to cut the wrong side? Perhaps trying to cut threw on the backing?

    Me too, I had pro outlines but much better to put a yard stick against it and take a picture and scale it out. Works real well.

    Forget a couple times and you never will again. Sorry to hear the news.
  18. Sounds reasonable to me. Big boy shirts do cost more.
  19. Hi folks, I'm trying to make a slow comeback and while I was off sick for the past years I was reading about this heat press material. Now for 20 years now I've been a sign maker but never messed with this stuff. I got a hold of some to try and it didn't bad job. Now I've also been in ems for 25 years and a director and my best friend wants to buy 20 or 30 "Job shirts" which are just work sweatshirts for work and wants me to do the back and a badge on the left breast. Him providing the garments what's a fair price to charge him? I'm out of my comfort zone, Signs I'd fire a number right out. So I'll cut it, weed it and heat press it on. Any advise on what a number should be? Friend or not I have to make something for my time

    Is this a good deal!

    I agree about the age, it's worthless if it sat on a shelve for years. If you can even cut it and apply it the dry glue will not hold the graphic for long. Plus I'd look and make sure your getting full rolls or partial rolls. Also easy enough to look up the material cost prices but I too would go a buck and a half. What's he going to do with it? Sit on it?

    What would justify a 16x20" press size?

    I agree, I have a 15 X 15 for years and it works just fine for my stuff.

    I had the same question, easy mistake to make but yep mine also cuts like butter.
  25. Hoping a could bother someone for a little help, I'm really looking for some really nice dragons if anyone would be kind enough to share if they happen to a couple. I'm looking to cut them as masks to do a few etched mirrors for a freind. Many thanks.
