    751 Vinyl 15 inch

    Quick question, does 751 in the 15 inch size not come in the nice box that the 651 comes in? Just ordered a bunch and 1 roll came in a box, the others did not. Not that big of an issue because I am using most of it and have a few older boxes I can put the balance in. Just wondering if US Cutter is taking larger rolls and just cutting them down to the 10 yard roll. Thanks for reading.

  5. I don't think I have ever posted anything I have done. Here is a banner I did for my father in laws surprise birthday last year. He is a super huge The Doors fan.

    t-square it on sale

    Goes on sale after I just bought it (3 weeks ago). Seems like what ever I purchase here goes on sale a few weeks later........
  9. depends on what material you are using for one. "i figured almost $11 per sign in just material" but you think that charging $15 is too much? That is just $4 you would be making. It comes down to how much your time is worth (as others will say). But if you post what material you are using and how complex or simple the design is people will be able to let you know how much they would charge and you can base off of that.
  10. Just throwing this out there. How is the humidity in the room? I ran into this issue over the weekend, turned on the dehumidifier and all my cutting problems were solved (well not instantly, but when the humidity came down it started cutting perfect again).

    Running in Parallels?

    Well, I was able to go to Safari put in the address, put in my info and serial number and computer ID, got my registration code. Put it in and made a quick test cut. So I would chock this up to a success. I will update if I run into any issues.
  12. Put it simple, USB crapped out on my laptop. Fired up my old laptop but have to close out and restart the cutter and program due to a sending but not cutting issue, pretty sure it has to do with the computer being about 3 million years old. Would love to use my MacBook Pro. Running parallels I am running into a no internet, off line registration required. Is this typical? Went to the site listed on the bottom of the offline registration and says not found. I have another computer I can use, just figured it would be easier to use my mac in parallels. If this is a known issue and will not work I will dump this idea and not spend any more time than the 4 minutes I have so far.
  13. Long story short, a non profit group that I am heavily involved with has asked me if I would be able to get some shirts made. we would need 75 shirts, 100% cotton pretty sure blue, white logo on the front approx 1.5 x 3 on the back a bunch of local logos and people who donated approx 12 x 12. Sizes of shirts I am unsure so lets say a mixed bag, few small few med more large and extra large. You will have files provided how ever you like. Rather give the job to people who have helped me than the local screen printer here. Please PM me to keep it clean on this thread. Thanks guys and gals!
  14. @madhatter, they were done with a color laser printer.

    Need a bit of help going insane....

    This help? Dodge
  16. I just made my buddy a decal for his VW, just turned 400,000 miles....................... Not looking to ruffle feathers. Carry on. BUT, if I could add to this just a little, why not use a quality vinyl sheet and a laser printer? I have some stickers I printed out about 6 years ago on my car that look like the day I put them on, no laminate at all. Tried with a few different types of vinyl sheets, full color contour cut, laminated and not laminated. All are still holding up fine. I made some window clings when we first got into digital printing that are still being used.

    Transfer Carrier Sheet???

    I use acetate sheets that I cut to 15 x 25, spray them with some repositionable spray.

    Good Wood

    I have had luck with birch plywood. But on the other hand, I have basically an unlimited supply at work so I use it for everything.

    using a plotter to cut vinyl is NOT DIE CUTTING

    i don't call my printer a press, but Xerox does call it a press................

    Signblazer on Table Titan

    Just like dakota said. make sure you change the baud rate to match that of the cutter.

    Corner rounder and Misc

    That looks pretty interesting. I use a super old round corner machine at work for smaller jobs, like business cards. I HATE the thing. It is a hand operated thing and it sucks! But what you posted on the other hand looks pretty! I vote for you to buy it!

    Signblazer on Table Titan

    Signblazer on Table Titan

    it does work. have to select the port you wish to use, change the baud rate, I am not by the cutter computer now but i can look it up for you if needed edit: basically trial and error
  24. As the title states, I am looking for ideas on what people are using for roll holders on table top cutters. Been kicking around the idea of getting a smaller cutter for a few months. I was scrounging around at work knowing I have rollers from an old shrink wrap machine I was thinking about using (pending the finding of said rollers). If anyone would like to share their pics for ideas that would be great! Thanks girls and guys!
  25. That is pretty much exactly what I have here at work that I can not find! Little smaller, 21 inches. I also have very large ones, 60 inch we use for brown craft paper. They have been sitting for about 6 years now.
