I have a job to put graphics on 3 Astro vans. Here is a sketch I made based on the clients ideas. There will be more added such as a phone number and a URL. On the back of the van will be a list of what they do (home theater/automation). I have not done a job this size but my idea is to cut the large logo in 4 peices in each color. Each Green outline shows each a section of vinyl. The design will fit within 24" rolls. I have a few ideas... #1 - Cut the larger black (solid not outlines) shapes and apply them wet, then apply the red shapes on top wet. #2 - Cut the red shapes and apply them wet. Then apply the black outlines, cut in parts with transfer tape, dry or wet. #4 - Cut the large black shapes then the red shapes. Weed both colors then use transfer tape on the red and apply to the black when still on the backer. Apply this two-color graphic to the van wet. #5 - Better ideas? Any thoughts? There are pro's and con's to each but I have never done a large install like this in two colors. The only critical allignment is where the two peices come together, or rather 4 if you count each color on the left side of the large logo. The other sections of the logo are seperate so the allignment will not be as critical. The vinyl is Oracal 751 on 24" rolls. The template for the van if anyone wants to know came from BadWraps.com and allows you to slide your graphics underneith the highlights and shadows of the van and already has a mask cut in the layered Photoshop .TIF file to make desinging easy. The cutter is a USCutter SC 50". I will make the sections of the vinyl designs in Illustrator before sending to SignCut Pro. thanks -david
