Re: Moving from Vinyl Master to Illustrator & Winplot

Double cuts are the one thing I keep getting.
The first time I used shapebuilder to add my own speed weed lines in Illustrator the cutter almost shredded the vinyl, it took me a while to realise that somehow I had added additional lines in the process.
Life's all about learning I guess!

Re: Moving from VinylMaster to Illustrator & Winplot

Rob,
I've always assumed that SignLab is going to be the uber expensive solution but in fairness I've never checked, so that will be todays task!

Bly,
if you use WinPlot to cut with your Summa cutter what software do you do the design in??

thanks,
John....

The only 'slow' payer I've had so far (I'm sure theres lots more to come...) was for a 'honour board'. I mentioned that I would start removing one gold vinyl letter from the board every day and that seemed to do the trick!
