I want to address something pretty simple today, but worthwhile! Several people have asked me about how to make really long vinyl cuts, so why not do a tutorial…..
You’ll want to make things long like quotes and sayings where you don’t want to be limited to the size of your cutting mat. You can cut vinyl without the mat! So however long your roll of vinyl is, that’s how long you can make your image. For example, here I’m using a piece of vinyl that’s 24 inches long to make a decal for a car:
See how the template is much larger than the cutting mat – it’s easy to adjust. Over on the right-hand side you ‘ll see a place to set your height and width – - change those to match the size of the vinyl you are using. It’s that simple!!
I have used this to put up a quote by our treadmill – here it is sitting in the corner:
And when you’re on it, you have this on the wall looking back at you, urging you to keep going:
I LOVE to be able to cut things the length of the vinyl I’m using – it opens up the vinyl cutting to so many possibilities. Enjoy!!
