hi Jerri Kubota here sunshiny cows and in my previous video showed you the four steps that I take to create a wall decal what I want to do here is to take each of those steps and kind of break them down for you so in this video.
I’m going to take step number one which is to design the decal and so that’s what I’m going to do here start with step number one and we do that on the computer that if you watch my previous video.
you might have noticed that I did it rather quickly and that’s because I already have my templates for each of the designs in my Etsy store okay so let’s take for instance I let’s take this.
Jakub decal with the helicopter okay and the customer says wow I like that decal but with the name and so that’s that’s what I was gonna have to design the decal to reflect the name and you so.
I’m going to go into my Etsy folder right here which I created my desktop.
I have a few categories here but one little bit is decal templates fighting that’s where I would find that decal because I named each of my files based on the name that you see in the picture in the store so.
so I’m going to get a request okay so that’s the Jacob decal that’s the Jacob design so I’m gonna type in J jumps now to to the to the J’s in my list and there is Jacob so I’m going to open it up and there.
you go I open up my my design my template and I I use Adobe Illustrator it’s my it’s my tool of choice for designing my my decals now these this is this is the font and although this might look like a graphic this is actually also font from a collection of funds so it makes it
easier to work with you’re going to see how easy it is to create the outline so first of all I need to change the name so let’s start there let’s not go ahead of ourselves so they want like that did
Andrew of course I have to make appropriate adjustments because it’s going to fall off the page and it’s going to be a little to get so I have to keep it within the margins I already know that many decals going to be 22 inches wide and that’s the margins that I have here looks pretty centered that’s
it it’s that easy really so the next thing I’m going to do is to pull up my cut studio plugin which works with my rolling cutter it came with the roller cutter and ever since I’ve used it quite frankly it works just fine so that’s why these I want go to my Windows menu option go down to cut studio plugin and pull it up and I’ll show you how easy it is to create outlines for these fonts so.
let’s start with this one up here and create outline and there it is you see it around the screen there and Andrews want me to create the outlines so that the cutter recognizes the outline and there it is now all I have to do is open up my rolling cut studio plug-in and just click on this little button right here Bing and it’s often there is now I don’t know if you can see it but the design is there and basically
we’re ready to send to the cutter but now we have to go to step number two which is to load the vinyl cutter and send the design to cut so that’s what I’m going to do in the next video for more of my instructional videos visit my blog at wall decal business calm thanks for watching and I’ll see you in the next videoRead More »
