Cutting vinyl letters in Silhoutte Cameo is an easy and efficient way to make custom decals, signs, and other decorations. Using the Cameo’s automatic cutting feature, you can quickly and accurately cut out any shape or design you want. You can also use it to cut out letters for custom t-shirts, mugs, and other projects. Here’s how to do it:
The first step is to prepare your design.
If you are cutting letters, you’ll need to have a vector file of them available either on your computer or in the Silhouette library. If you are creating your own lettering, use the text tool in the Silhouette software to type out your words or phrases. Then use the line tools to draw a box around each letter.
Once your design is ready, load your vinyl onto the cutting mat and insert it into the machine. Make sure that you select “vinyl” as the material type in the software so that it will adjust blade depth and speed appropriately.
Now it’s time to cut! Select the “cut” option from the menu bar at the top of the screen and your letters will begin to be cut out of your vinyl sheet.
When the machine has finished cutting, carefully remove all of your letters from the cutting mat. You may want to use tweezers for this as some of them may be very small.
Finally, apply transfer tape over each letter and use a squeegee or credit card to press down firmly. This will help ensure that all of your letters stick securely when transferred onto their final surface.
Cutting vinyl letters in Silhoutte Cameo is a great way to create custom designs for any project or occasion! With just a few simple steps, you can quickly create beautiful decals, signs, t-shirts, mugs and more.
Conclusion:Cutting vinyl letters with a Silhouette Cameo is easy with just a few simple steps. First prepare your design by creating vector files or typing out words with the text tool.
Load up vinyl onto a cutting mat then select “vinyl” as material type before initiating the cut option. Once finished remove each letter carefully then apply transfer tape over each one before pressing down firmly with a squeegee or credit card.
