Adhesive Vinyl Tips, Tricks & Pro World Products

Regardless if you are new to cutting machines or are a seasoned pro we thought it would be fun to round up all of our ADHESIVE VINYL TIPS & PRODUCTS in one place to help make your life easier! Just pin this post so you can find it in the future! 

adhesive vinyl

Let’s start with some basic tips, shall we? 

  • ALWAYS test cut your design to make sure that it is cutting as it should!
  • When it comes to cutting adhesive vinyl, you want to cut with the colored vinyl side up.
  • Want to cut multiple images of the same design with your Silhouette? Use the fill page button.

Now here are some adhesive vinyl tips that you may not know!

  • Place a rectangle around your image before cutting to help you weed your design.
  • If you have an intricate design slow down your cutting speed.
  • When cutting multiple types or colors of vinyl on our Silhouette Machine, you can cut by the color of your design fill instead of selecting & deselecting cut lines. 
  • When layering adhesive vinyl use guides to help line up where the vinyl goes. You can do this by adding small rectangles to the outside of your project. Line up the rectangles, and your image is as it should be.
  • Occasionally the adhesive vinyl won’t stick to a surface because of the way that it was treated. You can usually make it stick by spraying an adhesive spray onto the hard surface.

Cut an ear saver with your Silhouette

As I am sure you are already aware, the CDC recommends that all people wear a mask or cloth face covering while in a public setting when it is hard to practice social distancing. Which means a lot of us are starting to suffer from sore ears. While this is a small price to pay to keep ourselves and others safe, we figured it wouldn’t hurt to find a way to craft a solution. And guess what? It worked! 

In today’s blog post, we are showing you how we cut through a thin plastic book cover backing to make yourself an ear saver.

ear saver (1)

You will need:

  • a Thin but durable plastic material. We used the backing of a plastic book cover. 
  • Cutting Machine, we used the Silhouette Cameo 4.
  • Cutting Mat
  • Computer

Directions to make an ear saver:

Design your ear saver. 

mask 2

Cut the back page off of your book cover.

IMG_5474

Place it on the mat and insert it into your Silhouette Machine. 

IMG_5477

Go to the cut setting of your silhouette cameo 4 and look at the settings. If you use the plastic book cover backing, we used the shrinky dink cut setting.

Do a test cut. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP. If it cuts entirely through and you can lift it off just fine, you can move on to the next step. If it doesn’t cut, adjust your cut settings.

Click cut! 

Carefully lift off your ear saver and the remaining cut-up book cover. 

IMG_5479

Try it on.

IMG_5483

A few important notes:

  • Our employee that made the ear saver has only used it about 5-10 so far. So far, so good. But we have no way to know how long the plastic ear saver will hold for. If you are concerned about that, you could try cutting slightly thicker material. 
  • When trying to figure out the size, we measured the back of the ear to the other ear to get a feel for how big it needed to be.
  • We also cut a few different designs to see what angle would work best; we’d recommend you do the same or see if you can find a proven ear saver pattern to purchase.
