  1. Is anyone aware of a decent wordpress or jooomla plugin that could be used for decal design? specifically looking for something similar to what the boat name websites use to design / order custom boat names? just something that allows you to pick from some fonts, and basic colors/outline etc and show a preview and then purchase it based on size. i've been looking with no luck and am surprised not to find several things. the only one i did find so far is almost too complicated and has too many features for different products.. need something simple!!!!!!! hoping maybe someone here can point me in the right direction. thanks!
  2. Hey y'all, It's Sarah again. Right now I'm cutting with the MH871-MK2, and it's done well for what I was doing. Now I'm getting into contour cutting (I have a designjet z6100 for printing) and need something with laser/optic eye for contouring... I found a greeeat deal for a USC LaserPoint2 that somes WITH VinylMaster.. It's 379.00. Now, I have a huge order coming due where I'm going to need contour cutting in small letters. Will that machine work and work well? I want to get a Graphtec, but until I get this order DONE, the money isn't available... so should I go for the good deal and get the LP2? I've read a little about the Titan 2 and 3 and honestly wasn't impressed... Also, is the LP2 stepper or servo?? Thanks! Sarah

    Favorite Chrome Vinyl

    Hi Everyone, I have had a couple of customers express their interest in chrome decals. One in particular was looking into possibly getting couple of 3"x14" decals cut in chrome. I have worked with Avery Conform Chrome in the past but only with wrapping. Could I cut the decals out of that? If not, what Chrome vinyl recommendations do you all have? Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi all Long time lurker, first time poster. Looking at the possibility of a vinyl decal on a standard PVC card (like an ID card). I want to be able to protect the vinyl from getting nicked or peeling off as this would need to be a relatively durable outdoor use- basically disc golf league membership cards that hang on members golf bags. Am I wrong in thinking a couple layers of a decent clear coat would do a sufficient job for this application? And if this is an OK route to go, what are your recommendations for types/ brands of clear coats?
  5. Hello everyone I would like to organize my jobs easier now and I would like to do it by job number in vinyl spooler is there a way to rest the job numbers? thank you

    Printing window decals.

    Hi. First of, forgive by bad english as it is not my 1st language. Im completely new to printing, well, except for A4 paper I am an engineering student with an eye for design, at least thats what people tell me. I like designing things for some reason I design webpages, gift cards, manuals, ads, brochures, signs, billboards, posters etc and I love it. Now I want to take it one step further and start to make som money but I have no idea how to start. I dont know what machines are used If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it. I tried googling it and came over huge machines, bigger than my apartment that costs 200K+ and lost all hope but then I found something called: Epson Stylus Pro 9450. Its quite affordable, I can get a used one for about 1K. Is this the right printer for me? My main priority is to print store window decals/logo. Will this machine print on transparent adhesive paper? Do I need some special ink to counter rain and UV damage? Thanks

    Back Side Cutting

    I find it necessary to cut the paper backing in order to more readily apply the vinyl once section at a time. Has anyone ever done this? Or similar to this? I can cut the paper backing but the vinyl itself on the bottom for the last cut stretches and tears. Are there any remedies someone can recommend?

    3D Text

    I searched for this in Vinyl Master Users on Facebook, but there's not enough people there to be a good support team. And VM's tech support is non existent. So maybe someone here can help. I have VM Cut(US Cutter) at this time. What I want to do is maybe manipulate an outline or just make my font 3 dimensional. Similar to pics. Thanks in advance. 3CkPeJy5
  9. Hi All, I was going to take a crack at cutting some signage for my truck, are there any particular do's and don'ts? Something like: no goofy comic sans fonts only easy to read fonts only 'opposite colors' at least 3 forms of contact Telephone Number Email Address Website at least 2" high letters If my truck is ' Red Rock Metallic ' what would be a good 'opposing color' to make the lettering stand out? Last question Is matte or shiny preferred for vehicle signage? Thanks
  10. Help! I can not get the vinyl to come off of the transfer paper. I am using cricut transfer paper. It is doing it with glitter vinyl and normal. With the glitter I am using the transfer paper that came with it. I just mailed 20 decals to go on wine glasses any tips of how they can get them off?
  11. Completely new to the vinyl world. ive had my cutter for about a month and I am absolutely loving it. ive ventured into the heat transfer vinyl a little and made a couple shirts for me and my daughter. I just used an iron and it has worked fine. I'm starting to get interest from my baseball team and my daughters softball team for shirt orders. im not mass producing shirts with an iron. lol. so ive started looking at presses. im completely clueless on them. what are some things to look for/have to have/stay away from, etc? this wont be a full time business type deal. more of a side hobby for me and make a few shirts for friends and family type deal so I obviously just need a low budget one. I searched ebay and amazon tonight and checked out several different ones, but im not even sure what I am looking for. I saw several that were less than $100. seems like a no brainer, but didn't want to get one that cheap and it not have something I need or wrong size, etc. any help is appreciated, as I know there will be. this forum is a great asset, especially to a newbie. lol. another thing, what does everyone use for shirts? my first couple I did I just ran to the local fabric/craft store and paid astronomical prices just to try it out and was pretty happy with it. nice to have something local if I was ever in a pinch. ordered some siser easyweed and am in the process of making some work shirts for my dad with that. just didn't know if there was something else out there that was a little cheaper and still worked good or not. we all know even if its not a business, the more profit the better . so what does everyone else use or stay away from? just trying to get a little background on this stuff so I can at least pretend I know what im doing thanks again everyone!
  12. Question for anyone doing banners, only place I can find to order banner blanks that are already made to size is uscutter is there any other companies out there selling pre sized and finished blanks?
  13. Hello everyone! I am not sure if this is the right place to post this, I was trying to find the correct subcategory for the MH871. I need some help. My cutter will not cut anything small and detailed. I am trying to print two sugar skulls, around 2.5-"3" wide and 3-3.5" in length but the pics below is what it's doing. I am also trying to cut text that's around 4" wide and 2.5" long and it messes up every time. The cut speed is 330, press is 150. I've tried on cut press 130 up to 170 and it won't work either. I've also tried slowing down the speed, down to 120. AND also tried it on two different brands of vinyl. Please help me!

    Need help...

    Hey y'all, My name is Sarah, and I've been cutting with the MH871-MK2 for about 1.5 years now. I love it, I really do, and it's done awesome work for me. I do vinyl decals, etc., for business and personal use, and it's never let me down once I figured it out! Until recently... I added heat transfer vinyl to my business for t-shirts and things of that ilk. I did a couple large designs, and my cutter did as expected, but when I try to do smaller things, especially letters, it literally chews them up. Edges don't meet, shapes are skewed, and the letters end up looking terrible. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I'm using Jet Pro Soft Stretch, so I know the vinyl is not a poor or low quality... And I've tried every combination of force, overcut, velocity, everything that I can think of. I would really appreciate ANY help at all, and suggestions, anything!! I'm at a loss for what to do... Thanks in advance, Sarah
  15. Question for everyone, looking to order new vinyl cutter. I like the titan 3 was torn between the 28" and 68" like the 28" price but don't want to be limited in the future on design sizes. anyways I saw on ebay they have a 54" cutter for sale for a really good price and that would be a good size for the me. question is was there anything wrong with the 54s and should I purchase a cutter that has no warranty like the one on ebay. Thanks for the help. http://www.ebay.com/itm/162057826790
  16. We are adding handmade SIGNS to our Home Decor and Gift products SOLD On-Line. Looking at Vinyl material and mixed media design options for Fall and Christmas products. Can anyone suggest sources of Fonts for lettering, and vinyl materials worth using in a Circut Create machine. Should we investigate other die-cur machines for better SIGN making options? Any start-up kindness, help or suggestions would be really appreciated. Nancy and I are both newbies as cutters, but have been in crafts since 1988. www.CottageComforts.net and www.Rose-CoveredCottage.com since 2012 for Home Decor and Gifts that make memories ... !

    Oil slick vinyl

    Good morning, I've been having some issues with my oil slick vinyl. I've ordered from two different companies and no avail. The vinyl is sticking to the backing paper. I've tried the depth of the blade but I am leaving no impression on the backing paper. I've noticed when I Try to separate the vinyl from the backing paper(fresh roll) It doesn't peel off smoothly it stops every 3 cm or so. I am clueless on what to do. Thank you for the help.
  18. Ok.....I finally got my CT630 working! Now the question is how do I set it so that I'm not wasting a lot of vinyl for small designs??? Is it possible to rotate the image so that it cuts lengthwise and not vertically on the vinyl? And can I set it up were it will cut the same image side by side....in case I have to continue to cut vertically. Thanks!
  19. Hoping to chat with some folks about vinyl choices for caps in particular but in general as well
  20. Hey guys! My names Axyl and I run a small vinyl sticker business in Western Australia. Refine Pro-24 & Signcut Pro Last weekend my cutter started malfunctioning mid-cut. The screen is stuck on "Thank you for cutting!" And the actual cutting module keeps repeatedly bashing up against the side of the machine as soon as I flick the power on. I'm stressing out like crazy because I have a lot of people relying on me for business stickers and car vinyls etc. If anyone has any idea on how to fix this error, or perhaps anyone in WA, or even Australia can fix it. Even Refines contact details would be greatly appreciated. Thanks heaps guys! Axyl

    Which Vinyl Do I Need?

    Hello everyone! I am wanting to make a monogram tote bag for myself. I found the the faux leather tote bag at Hobby Lobby on clearance for $11. Everyone on etsy selling these for $25 or more. I have a uscutter plotter. The problem is I don't know which heat transfer vinyl works on this type of material. Everywhere I have read says this material is a pvc not leather. Please if anyone has made these and know which vinyl works I would appreciate them letting me know. Thanks
  23. Hi, I’m new to the community and would appreciate your honest feedback. Does anyone know if it’s possible to make 50k+ selling small vinyl decals that are less than 15” online via. Etsy, Ebay, and/or Amazon? Thanks!
  24. Hi. Does anyone know where I can find/order removable / Temporary wall vinyl in neon (flourescent) colors or glow-in-the-dark (photoluminescent). Thanks.
  25. When I was in IKEA sourcing out my media basket parts for another DIY I'm stumbling through, I saw they had stands all over the store with hanging meter stick rulers that are IKEA branded digitally printed on paper. Customers are free to use them to measure items in their showroom when cruising around their store. They're free for the taking - I asked. I wouldn't take a whole pile of them in one go or anything but two here and there are perfectly acceptable according to the sales rep I was talking to and he encouraged it. It dawned on me that I could use two of these freebies taped onto my vinyl cutter (one on the front of the cutter and one on the back - upside down so the numbers and measurements could be read easily while facing the front of the cutter, both properly measured and aligned of course) to assist in lining up vinyl on the cutter for consistent tracking. Simply align the front most part of the vinyl from the roll or scrap piece to the same ruler line on the back of the cutter's ruler line (both left edge and right edge) and you're more than likely going to be tracking straight. Do some feed tests to see just how accurate or far off your alignment is and adjust accordingly. If you wear these rulers out over time, just replace as needed. They're also handy to quickly see if a scrap piece of vinyl you're wishing to use will fit a design you plan to be cut before you go through the hassle of setting it up. Checking the net, people do make an adhesive tape or transparent film type ruler too though for a more permanent and professional look for your cutter. A Bing Images Search shows adhesive ruler tape (Safe for work). An example of this is also attached to this thread. I don't know exactly where to buy this stuff but with some more Google searching, I'm sure one could obtain it.
