After you selected your design and material, all that is left is setting up the machine.
Before beginning to cut, there are three final steps.
A cut too weak will prevent weeding (peeling away excess vinyl), or at least make it much more difficult. A cut too strong will cut through both the vinyl and the backing, create debris and possibly making marks on the cutting mat if it is way too deep. In either case, adjust power in small increments (depth too if the cutting mat is being cut or if the cut is not making it through the vinyl). Try to cut with the lowest possible settings to ensure the greatest chance for success. After you are satisfied with the parameters, send the file to be cut!
Cuts with the vinyl cutter usually do not take very long.
Heat transfer is the process of applying vinyl to clothing. Much of the process up until the application remains the same except for using different vinyl types and putting the tape on. To begin with, the vinyl should be placed shiny side down as it is applied in reverse. Special transfer tape is also needed as well. Other than that, it is the same process as before
