What is a “Die-Cut” Decal?
The process when the razor blade (from a vinyl cutter) traces and cuts out a vector image. The excess vinyl is then weeded and discarded (by hand) to reveal the image while still retained to its backing. In other words a “Kiss Cut”, where the blade is pressure-sensitive and only cuts the top layer.
The bottom layer is the carrier backing paper that holds the vinyl in place. When the blade is set to the proper pressure, The backing paper won’t be perforated. Too much pressure and you risk cutting through both layers, rendering the piece useless. An adhesive backing paper is then applied to the top of the vinyl, in order to be transferred to the appropriate substrate.
Why are your designs different?
Even though there’s a lot of competition out there, my designs are usually developed by experience and inspiration.
I pay close attention to detail and quality materials.
Do you make full color stickers?
Unfortunately, not at this time. Maybe in the near future. Will make an announcement when available.
I am NOT a big fan of these. They tend to have a shorter lifespan than vinyl decals.
Do you “Screen Print”?
Unfortunately, not at this time. Even though I’ve been contemplating it, its too messy and the process is long. Screens can take up a lot of real state. I rather have the flexibility of heat-transfer vinyl and its specialty color selection. If my working space gets bigger I might consider it.
