One of my newer discoveries on Expressions Vinyl is their Printable Vinyl!
Their printable vinyl is printable with nearly any printer, yes, including your at-home inkjet printer! How exciting!
There are many times when I have wanted to create custom stickers for birthday parties, gift bags and I have managed to use regular vinyl for so many different uses, however, the ability to create my digital design on my computer, print it on vinyl and then cut around it using my Silhouette!
I am in love!
I recently made some homemade Black Raspberry Jam and I wanted a way to label these that wasn’t a sharpie! So I created a simple design in my Silhouette Software.
First I found a border that I liked, and offset the exterior border so that I could cut around the label.
Next I made sure that the exterior border was set to “cut” and the interior border design was set to “no cut.”
I filled in the interior border and added my lettering. Again, be sure that the lettering is set to “no cut” and fill the lettering in as well.
Add registration marks.
And then I cut my design out!
How cute are these!?
