WKSCH016: Multi Color and Contour Cutting on the Vinyl Cutter
Class Number 1819-112919

In the advanced vinyl cutter class you will learn two advanced techniques. The first of which is cutting multiple colors of vinyl with registration marks so that all the colors can be perfectly aligned. This can make for even more interesting multi-color decals. This is particularly handy when making large signs with a multicolored logo.

The second is contour cutting. With this technique we will show you how to take a very large resolution image and print it to the wide format printer (with registration marks), then take that printout to the vinyl cutter and precisely cut around the image. If you've ever seen a fathead commercial where a cutout of a sports star or character from a movie is cut out along the contour of the character. This method will show you how to do that. Many of our members also use this technique to create large sheets of full color stickers to apply directly onto their product.
