I have an Edge 1 using Graphix Advantage software, and an Envision 375 plotter.
I inherited this machine when we purchased the shop. I was not shown how to run this, so I had to learn on my own.
I use it, but not as much as I should to make it pay for itself. Mostly because I have to learn more about what I can do with it.
Since we are moving our shop, I thought about using some Gerber vision to put on our windows to show off what it can do.
I have 2 windows about 10 inches wide and approximately 6 feet tall. I thought it would be cool to create a scenic picture, like a waterfall or something. I could use the Gerber Vision and not have to worry about paneling pieces together.
My question is this: When I'm designing the picture, do I make it the size I'm going to use? I would think if I did that, It would take up a lot of MB. But I'm also afraid of making it smaller, then when I size it to print, it might come out all pixelated.
I see so many large vehicle graphics made with the Gerber, and am curious how they make the images so crisps. I mean the realistic pictures, not clipart. I know you can resize clipart and not lose any quality, but the photo type images is my question.
