  1. Hello, im just starting to use CorelDraw for designing graphics, I have ve lxi expert software that I have been using. im designing race car graphics and I can make them using a template in draw, but I want to bring the design into my software to cut the different graphics, i'll attach a picture of a simple design of a flame decal, it is a larger decal I placed where I wanted, but there is some of the design that runs off the car and is hidden due to the template. I only want to cut what shows on the car, not all the extra of the design, or if I can possibly cut a few inches extra to help when installing them. Would it be best to powerclip the flame into the outline of the car, then just export it? not sure what works best, im sure it would be easier if I were printing the design but don't have the capabilities for that yet, just cut vinyl. Thank you for any advice and help.
  2. I'm a designer with some sign shop experience from college and we've been having a ton of small decal jobs come in for a restaurant that we've just launched. So I've convinced my boss to looking into purchasing a plotter for our office so we don't have to continuously bother printers for these little odd jobs. Are there any recommendations for plotters on the cheaper side that produce decent work? We're not looking to purchase a $1,000+ plotter or anything. Just one that can get some simple tasks done. Do you think that it's worth it to purchase a cheaper plotter? Thanks in advance -CJ

    Font help

    I used this font on a customers design but computer crashed looking for help identifying it its a rather common one. ignore the star in the top as i had to add that myself.
  4. Hi, ok so i have a refine mh721 bought second hand but not overly used before i had it. Now i have been using propely cutting various wall stickers and garment vinyls etc for about a month. Not had a single issue. Until last night Half way through a larger cut the blade got caught or some mishap that led to the blade being dragged of its track, i reset the blade on the track etc and then it seemed to be working finished the order and then went to start the next. Then the problem happened, it stopped cutting mid design and just had some funky stuff on the lcd display. So i switched the plotter on/off, on reboot, the display is now blank and all three lights are lit (red-reset, amber-online/offine, green-setup) I am gutted. I am new to plotters but have some technical knowledge that i have picked up along the way. So i have check the 'simple things' or so i believe. Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks in advance
  5. The right side of my image will not stay clean even if its the same points as the left. This is hard to explain in text but easy to see in the pictures. When mirroring the image and uploading them at the same time the left side is perfect but the right side is bad has any one ever seen this before. perfect in illustrator, bad in SCA

    Course vs. Fine etched vinyl

    What is the better looking etched vinyl in your eyes? course or fine silver etched ? Thanks
  7. I am using the 14" MH series to cut stencils no bigger than 8" by 8" out of vinyl. My SCALP version is 3.052. I used the trace function to create a cutable file from a .jpg. The first file I cut turned out perfect. It was not very complicated and only a few small shapes. The second file I tried was more intricate, but in the same size range. Approx 6" x 6". . The first attempt with the second image resulted in an orientation shift of a small portion of the image. One foot was rotated 90 degrees on the axis and was cut along the left side wing area. Small small straight lines were also left, almost as though it was attempting to finish the cut prior to the orientation change. The second attempt had the same issue, only with a different small portion of the image. If I remember correctly, one the wing sections was shifted 90 degrees on the axis and a long cut was made to get the cutter to that point. On both there were cuts, not in the file, across the image. It appears the cutter was not lifted between movements. The image below is the base image to the file I created in SCALP, for reference to the above descriptions. I can post the SCAL file if it would help. My questions are: Is there a way to stop this from happening? Is the file too intricate for this cutter? Is this a cutter problem, rather than software? My assumption was maybe the program is sending incorrect information or is set incorrectly.

    Carolina Panthers Vectorizing

    I am looking for a vector eps file of the new Carolina Panthers logo (with the words). Thank you in advance for your help, Rachael
  9. Well I just don't understand what I am doing wrong. I have as of yet had zero luck selling anything online. I am not sure what I am doing wrong or not doing but something isn't right. I have merchandise listed on two facebook pages, ebay, etsy, and craigslist. I get about one call a week from my many craigslist adds and so far one has actually bought something. The only vinyl product I have sold on Ebay was for an auction I started at $5 and there was only one bid. Just wondering if anyone would be willing to shoot a tip or two my way about what they have had good results with. I have shirts, wall art, and vehicle graphics listed for sale.

    Problems getting an Activation code

    I use a mac but since SignBlazer Elements/US Cutter won't work with mac a friend gave me an old Windows XP desktop to run my US Cutter. But it cannot conect to the internet and as such I cannot 'register' SignBlazer. I just need an Activation code. Can anyone please please tell me what to do? I'm about to sell the bloody cutter but it would be an awful shame. I'm really at the end of my rope with this thing.

    Copam Help!! (please :) )

    So I recently posted about going from an MH to something else I ended up with Copam 3050. I came into the forums read around got it set right cut a good 10 decals turned it off for the night. Come back on today and now it either says it's cutting and it's not doing anything or I have been trying to cut something 15x30 and it's jumbling it (cutting it ontop of what it's already cut) on a 12x12 portion of the vinyl. I slowed down my speed, lowered everything like some forums suggested to get it going that's how I got it running today. Now i'm confused. I run Sure Cuts A Lot Pro never had an issue like this....
  13. This is all very new to me. I just retired and would like a hobby. I recently attended a wrestling tournament and they were selling decals to adhere to wrestlers head gear. Can anyone tell me how I can get started? What I saw was them applying decals that I'm sure they made to the gear with a hair dryer. First how can I make or copy the decals (Best program). Should I use a vinyl plotter? Like I said this is all new. If anyone can help I would really appreciate it. See sample attached. Bruiser

    JPSS and 3G Opaque HELP!!!

    Hey guys, I haven't spent much time playing with my print transfer materials I bought awhile back because I really haven't had much luck when trying. For the dark shirts, I have done a couple of the opaque transfers. The color is great but the edges around the image are white and look bad. I tried to trim as close as possible to the image I printed (by hand) but there was still white after I transfered it. For the JPSS I realized it is really only good for white shirts because the color of the shirt will show through the image but I have a similar problem with it as well. I did a shirt with sisser easy weed text and a small portrait of patrick swayze next to it. I removed the background from the image but there is still some sharp edges at the bottom where his shirt was. it just doesn't look right to me. is there a way to feather the edges or soften it?
  16. this is my first vinyl cutter and I'm very confused. I've done the design in illustrator, created registration marks, sent to cutting master3 and sent to printer: graphtec ce6000. I've selected outdoor vinyl and it keeps saying mark scan error. have I missed a step? am I meant to print on the vinyl? does the ce6000 print? please help!!!

  18. Hey all, Hubby & I jumped in blind with Both feet, we had no other options. The research we did made everything look so simple. Now we are having trouble even getting started. We have only been able to cut various wording stickers. Is SignCut the best comunication program? How do we get it to import images? Does it communicate with Corel Draw x5? We also bought the Clipart design Ultimate Ornaments Mega pack.How does that fit in? Please anyone willing to help you would be very appreciated.
  19. Hey everyone, I ordered a refurbished is cutter sc1 a couple of days ago. It arrived today and needless to say I was pretty stoked. The only problem is that it doesn't turn on. I emailed them around 2 and haven't heard anything back yet. Just seeing if you guys had any insights. To eliminate the normal questions: it's plugged in, tried multiple plugs, and checked the fuse.

  23. Just thought I would post this for all the people who were just like me.................dreaming, researching and trying to decide on a cutter to buy, the company to buy from, etc. I'm a newbie and just got started 2 days ago so I don't know much yet. The one thing I can attest to is that THIS company and the people in this forum have been GREAT so far. After reading, watching videos, etc I decided on the Graphtec CE5000 package deal $1695.00. I was amazed at all that I recieved with this package: Great plotter/cutter, 12 rolls of vinyl, Corel x3, clipart design software, x-acto knife, extra blades, 10 squeegees, application tape, application solution & spray bottle, weeding tool, another type of cutting tool. It is a sign shop in a box or 3 boxes! And....the FREE downloads from this site, Inkscape, Signblazer are amazing. As for support, I've had multiple people from this forum welcome me and offer help. Really made me feel great. And.....I called Customer Support at UScutter and actually got a human! Dave, I think was his name. He answered my question quickly and professionally. I may not get this dream off the ground but I do know I chose the right place to get started! Thank you UScutter and those that have helped me so far and those who will in the future. Jeff Bristol, Va.
  24. Hi I'm Jude and have been drawing vector files since 2000 for the sign, engraving and print industries. If you have a vector graphic but can't cut the right objects, I can make it cut-ready. Raster to vector conversion is what I do. If you need a bitmap image "cleaned" up and redrawn in vector format I can help. Even if you don't have the actual graphic (e.g. if you only have a photo of a truck with the graphic sign on the truck) I can reproduce the vector art. I can be your online "fix this graphic" person.

  25. I purchased a couple months ago a USCutter refine mh721-mk2 cutter, had lots of stupid problems at first, took a couple weeks to iron them out. Finally got it working correctly and finished the few small vinyl jobs. Been catching up on the silk screening end and got another simple vinyl job, changed no settings(new sign same as last) and now it just spits out the whole roll. I went in and everything is set the same as last job from a while ago that worked, vinyl size type size and all. can't figure it out and the manual has no trouble shooting what so ever.... If anyone can help it would be greatly apreciated. I would rather not uninstall & reinstall to start over again. Thanks Rick from
