WKSCH016: Multi-Color and Contour Cutting on the Vinyl Cutter
Class Number 1819-108330

In the advanced vinyl cutter class you will learn two advanced techniques: cutting multiple colors and contour cutting.

First, you will learn about cutting multiple colors of vinyl with registration marks so that all the colors can be perfectly aligned, which is particularly handy when making large signs with a multicolored logo.

Next, we will show you how to take a very high 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. Have you 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? The contour cutting 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.
