Contour Cut Decals (Print & Cut)

Artwork should be created at actual size in Illustrator. Create a layer, separate from the artwork consisting of only the cutting path. Name this layer "CUT LAYER". This layer should be the top most layer, consisting of a .025" magenta stroke [or any color not used in the document] with no color fill. Only the path on that "CUT LAYER" will be cut to the contour. All fills, stroke widths, gradients etc. will be ignored by the cutting device. Avoid exporting paths from Photoshop to create your cutting path as this will likely be too complex (too many nodes) and may result in an unclean or jagged cut. The smallest area should be no less than .25" to allow for adequate surface adhesion. This applies mainly to type or graphics with thin strokes.

Our art department will review the file prior to production. Any art submitted which may require any substantial amount of art time will be subject to a re-quote and possible delays in the promised delivery date.
