Hi, Martin, My plotter is a 7 year old Ioline Classic 24, friction feed. I rarely have to cut more than an eight foot length, but even with that, alignment can be a problem. First fix was to acquire two additional pinch rollers---- the vinyl would occasionally "belly" up in the middle, and a rip wou...

Hi, Becky, I don't know about the "Ideal" setup, for what you want to do, but let me run off the specs for the computer I had built last November. Keep in mind that this is also used for Flight Simulator gaming, so it may be a bit of overkill. Also, I use Signlab5 and e6--both at "Assistant" level. ...

Hi, from the Colonies, Regarding overlaid, or MDO---this is a type of exterior plywood that has the top layer(s) made of some sort of resin loaded plastic for a surface. It looks a lot like the brown paper that grocery bags are made of. It works well as a sign substrate, but the edges have to be tho...

Hello from the Colonies Sally, On the question of CDs with fonts, I can't really help you. Most of the time I just use what was included with Signlab5. There are various websites here in the States that deal almost exclusively with fonts. A web search would probably be your best bet. Regarding the c...

Another opinion--this time from the Colonies. This topic came up some little time back on the Letterheads Bullboard, and not everyone agreed on what was "correct." I can't address the vehicles in England or the rest of Europe for that matter----many are not seen over here. With our domestic vans man...

Just one more opinion from the Colonies. I don't feel that just because a vehicle is washed, that it is clean. It may appear so, but one should keep in mind that wax will mess up an application of either paint or vinyl. Having said that, I feel it is safer to prep the vehicle right from the start---...

Hello. Tim, I had a similar problem several years ago, when I first got into the computer/plotter/corel5 scene. At the time I was using Corel5 and Signlab "shotcut"-- a bridge program that allowed the plotter to cut from Corel. The plotter was, and still is, an Ioline Classic 24, and it would not ac...

Hi from across the pond.

Just stopped by to say "Hello" from the breakaway colonies. Another old (really old) brushswinger that only in the last few years has gotten into computers/vinyl. Still using the hair on a stick some of the time. If I can help anyone out who might have questions regarding brush lettering, ...
