Making Decals Using a Plotter - plotter
 

Steps:

  1. I had to get the design, put it through a program that controls the plotter machine.
  2. Once added into the system, I made the image more clear.
  3. After that I put the vinyl film into the plotter and allowed the program to cut the designs out of the film.

  5. Once complete, I pulled/cut the excess pieces of film out of the original design using a thin handled OLFA razor knife.
  6. Then I applied the masking tape over the cut out designs using 12" medium stick masking tape, and used a hard card to flatten and seal the decals.
