    I know I'm way ahead of myself here as I don't even have my VersaCamm yet, but when I do get it up & running, I'd like to make a bunch of contour-cut decals (3" x 6"?) as samples to give to existing and potential customers.

    So what would be a really nice, wild, impressive, high quality image to print which doesn't infringe on any copyright issues?

    I know, I know......."Design one yourself" you're thinking, and I may, but I'm just wondering if anything else fits the bill.

    Maybe an image/design/graphic which has carbon fiber, engine turn, flames, etc etc etc fills.

    I guess I was thinking of something that had some shape to it in the contour cut. Something "signy" or logo-like, if that makes sense.

    Lightening would be another cool component.



    hmmmm

    Colin,
    I did this years ago when I got my first digital printer (Roland PC-600, yes it still works perfect, door stop boat anchor my ***!). When I would design a sign, truck doors, etc. I would print, laminate & contour cut a small sample decal along with the job. These would generally sell themselves, contractors & tow companies ate em up, all you had to do was provide the sample and suggest some uses such as tool boxes, equipement, etc. Here is a sample of the first one I did.

    colin, we got our vp540i in summer and it comes with some samples that you can print off. some of the samples are really very nice and we have used these ourselves over the past months to show off what the vp can do.
