Setting Up For Vinyl Cutting

Recommended Posts


Hoping I can get some help/ direction with prepping Paint.net generated vinyl graphics for cutting.


We had some simple graphics made and should have specified they be printed to transparent matte


vinyl laminating stock. Instead, the print source put them on white and they are too small and detailed


to cut out with an Xacto knife.


I need some guidance on setting up a cut line path, on a separate layer, for these graphics we're playing with.


If more details required, please inform.


Appreciate any input- Thanks!

Hmmm... will the final black guide outline show up on the graphic, and what to do


about back/ drop shadowing?... do I just put the cutting guide outline on another 


layer and not flatten?... is there a tutorial here for vinyl cutting setup?...


I'm thinking I could use the white illustrated above as a temp layer and throw it


out after establishing cut line.


Thanks for your patience and help.
