    Looking for a little help on this one.

    That’s better than what I could come up with. Much appreciated. I’ll see what I can do. Thanks.
  2. I'm doing some outdoor signs for our school that will have me lettering some .063 gauge reflective sign blanks. My question is, should I use 751 or 951 vinyl? I've only worked with 651 so I am unsure. These will be signs for the shelter house and the pick up/drop off area at school, so they are in for the long haul and will always be outside. In Iowa. is there good or bad things of either one I should be aware of? Just want to make sure and get what will last the longest. Thanks all
  3. Needing some help getting this vectorized. It is a lot more detail than I have ever dealt with and for the life of me can’t get it to where I like it. Anyone able to give it a go? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  4. No, nothing will be added to it. The shelter house is complete, and they just want a sign that lets people know the PTO donated the money for it. Ive attached a picture of the structure. Thinking I will attach it to one of the middle poles facing inward maybe.
  5. Looking for some of your ideas on this. I've had several running through my head and am not sure the best route to go. Our schools PTO used their funds to build a new shelter house. They have asked me to make some sort of sign they can post on it to show that. They have left it up to me on how to do it. I thought about engraving it on colored medal and sticking it on a piece of wood (like a plaque). I'm afraid something like that would not hold up to the elements though. I'm thinking my only option for longevity is going to be good ole oracal vinyl on a plain piece of metal. Just seeing if anyone might have another idea. I obviously want it to look as good as possible, but it will live outside in the brutal Iowa weather Thanks
  6. I’m beating my head against the wall trying to get these images to wear I can cut them. I’m making Cornhole boards for a local police officers cancer benefit and I’m running out of time. Any help is greatly appreciated. I use vinylmaster and have searched and searched and watched videos, etc. just can’t get them to look right. Thanks for any help. The second photo would only need to be the badge and “vinnie strong”. Don’t need the sponsors.

    Time for a new laptop

    I guess it’s probably getting slow due to every one of my files I’ve ever done is on the computer. Never thought of transferring files with a usb drive. But one of the USB ports doesn’t work, charge port sometimes doesn’t work, and sometimes you have to open and close it several times for the screen to come on. Lol. I just wasn’t sure if there was something specific I needed or just basic.

    Time for a new laptop

    Looking to get a new laptop that I will primarily use for my vinyl cutting. Any suggestions on things I should look for when buying. I currently have a toshiba satellite that has been awesome. It’s just older and getting slow so it’s time to replace it and I want to make sure I buy what I need. Any help is appreciated.
  10. Hey all, just throwing this out there to see if you guys have any ideas for me. Long story short, I made some shirts for a local cell phone company awhile back, boss loved them, decided to propose an agreement to me. He added my family cell plan onto their business account and they foot the bill, in return for merchandise for them to give away as promotions. Great deal for me, but I’m looking to find some different ideas for something new. I’ve done shirts, coozies, tumblers, and drawstring bags. Thanks in advance

    Ideas on this font?

    Hey all, really starting to get the hang of this vinyl stuff and loving it. Doing a lot of shirts for my baseball team and these forums are a huge help. I'm having trouble with this font I've attached. I've looked and looked and looked to No avail. Ideas? Thanks a million

    VINYL GLITTER CUTTING SEETINGS

    I have an SC cutter and it took me awhile before I got the glitter speed/pressure set right. At first I wouldn't even be able to peel it. Like they said, all cutters will be different, but for a reference point, if you would like, I cut regular HTV at 300 speed/30 pressure. The glitter I have found I have to take my speed down to 200, and the pressure to 150. Cuts and weeds perfect. I am fairly new to this but have done 5 glitter shirts in the last week and It worked perfect.

    New heat press help

    Awesome. Thanks guys. Much appreciated. That's what I thought, but wanted to make sure.
  15. Got my new 15x15 clamshell heat press this week. Gonna use it for the first time today. I can't find much info on it. My only question is the thick black pad that's in it. What's that for? It was stuck to the top platen originally, but I noticed it fell off. Is it supposed to be on the top? I'm thinking it was just stuck there and it's supposed to be on the bottom and that's what you set the shirt on. I just want to be sure. Thanks
