My birthday is this Sunday. Paul bought me a new silhouette cameo 3! I am beyond excited. I already had vinyl ordered for this sign, so I thought I would make it this morning.
Paul cut a 2×2 board into 4 pieces and painted with black chalkboard paint. I let them dry for a full day before adding the vinyl. I wanted to use chalkboard paint for this sign, so it could be used for many years.
With the old machine I had to manually load the paper myself, so I never knew exactly where the first cut would be, or if it would be slightly off. The new one loads itself. It is very nice. I had all 5 colors of vinyl on my mat and hit cut one time. It is very nice to know where the cuts will be exactly. It was faster cutting out the vinyl.
I ran into a couple of issues, but were user error. The machine is very nice to work with.
I was running out of time this morning, so I packed it up and headed to work. I leave early for work so I don’t get stuck in traffic. I finished the sign before I started work.
I think it turned out well. Everything is saved, so going forward this sign will be a lot easier to make in the future.
Make today great,
