    I just got my first job for my Roand SP540V. I have to print and cut 200 stickers. I am having problems creating a cutting path around the logo in Coreldraw. Can anyone help?

    You need to create a cut conture. Make a custom outline color and name it cutcontour. Then anything you want cut use this on it. In versaworks it will look like "marching ants"

    I am at the farm, so I think this is how you spell it! Do a search on here I am sure this will be answered. Bottoms up!

    Then this should solve the problem. In versa, make sure you have the cutting turned on in the set-up. Or if you are printing then laming then cutting be sure to turn on the algin marks, print only lam then cut only. SIMPLE!

    Let's reveiw. Load film, print only (with aliagn marks), laminate, re-load film, cut. Weed, tape apply. Be sure to let the print air out for an hour or 24 before laminating and cutting. 1-24 hours, this is a hot debate. I have done both, the more ink coverage, the longer I wait. Of course if you are in a hurry.....

    Moosher OUT!

    Here is another tip. If you shoot a coon in your yard be sure it is dead. Last night I shot a racoon off my porch and tossed it out in the waterway. Well that SOB crawled up under my deck and yelped all night. Finish the job, or you will be kept up by a coon all night!

    My father in law shot a lynx and threw it in the back seat of the car. You can imagine what happened when it awoke. Ooops.
