How To Create A Decal
Let’s get started: Open up a design in Silhouette Studio (from library or import a design).
1
With the design, click “Send” (located top right). Type of material is “vinyl glossy.” Action should be cut (cutting the vinyl).
2
Make sure “cut” is selected. This will bold the red cut lines (indicating where the cutter will cut the vinyl). TIP: Create a weeding box.
3
Waittt...we need materials and tools!! Items needed: Cutting mat, adhesive vinyl, squeegee, transfer tape/paper, weeding tool.
4
Ok, continue on..ha! Check the blade and line up the mat with the white line.
5
Press “load” on the control panel. The machine will pull the mat under rollers.
6
Are we done yet? Nope, but the hard part is over.
7
“Unload” the mat and remove the vinyl from the cutting mat.
8
Remove the excess vinyl from the design using the weeding tool. Remember that TIP from earlier, it will save you vinyl and time. (You’re welcome)
9
Peel and apply the application tape/paper to the design.
10
Use the squeegee to burnish the vinyl into the surface. Its helpful for working out air bubbles and wrinkles.
11
Make sure your design will transfer to the tape/paper. (Hence the name)
12
Apply to the surface and remove the application tape/paper. Use the squeegee again...Hold on...Hold on..GOO!
