I recently got a VE Lynx s-60 from a friend that could no longer find the time to do his part time sign business.. machine is in great working order . has the lxi expert 6.6 software. i already have Corel Draw 10 (although im not sure how to use it with the vinyl cutter). Is there any other software that i need?
i got lots of other stuff with the cutter ; ie several rolls of vinyl a corner rounder for making magnetic signs some clip art ect.
I am trying to make some "street signs" and cant figure out how to get a border around the edge of the 6 x 24 sign blank ? any direction would be greatly appreciated.

draw a 6 x 24 box, draw a 5.5 x 23.5 box, draw a 5 x 23 box, center them all, add the street name in the center of that & cut. Weed out between the letters and the inner box, & between the outer 2 boxes. You will have a 1/4" border that will fit 1/4" inside of the aluminum blank.
