  5. Magnetic Panels

    So we're trying to do a job for the city. They want their message board to be magnetic instead of cork board, and they want it to look like stainless steel. Now, I don't believe that the way my boss is wanting me to do this will work. His plan is to take our magnet roll and cut pieces to then...

  8. Blade advice needed!

    Hey y'all hope all is well in the signage world. Pretty basic question today. What type of blades do you guys use for your xacto? Or a different knife all together? We have utility blades and all that, those I'm not as worried about those. We have x-life #11 and I swear they chip as soon as I...

  10. Lettering a trailer -- Need advice

    I was trying to avoid going through all the specifics of the job and so on. I was mostly looking for general tips about dealing with trailers. Tips like the Rollie pro for rivets, what edges I should use for measuring, cut at the seams, that kind of advice. I got exactly what I was looking for!

  13. Jagged lines from the cutter

    Thanks for the responses, I knew I could count on you guys. So, our blade is relatively new and I believe my boss went name brand. It still looks to be in great condition. I cleaned out the head, there was a little bit of gunk in there. Looking at the design more closely I can see that the...
  14. Jagged lines from the cutter

    Hey y'all, another query here. I'm using the CE7000-60 to cut with graphtec pro studio and I'm getting some jagged lines off of it. Sometimes it will happen when the quality of the image I have is too low. That's understandable. I've never had it with typed text before however. This ampersand...

  17. Need Help CE7000-60 Having trouble with getting files to cut correctly

    Thank you for the replies, that helps me out a ton! Now, on to my next question, are you familiar with graphtec pro studio? If you are, is this something I can do myself or do I need AI or Photoshop or the like to do that? Referring to rasterizing an image. I'm not sure if I'm just blind and...
  18. Need Help CE7000-60 Having trouble with getting files to cut correctly

    So I'm using a ce7000-60 with graphtec pro studio. I'm relatively new to sign making and most of the experience I have is from trial and error or forums/videos. We've had decent success so far with some designs, while others load in with lines that aren't straight or so many hidden paths to go...
