Peppermint Creative’s Enhanced Commercial Vector Shapes for Vinyl Cutting Machines
Smooth, flawless vinyl cuts begin with professionally designed graphics specifically intended for vinyl plotters. Vinyl cutting machines employ advanced edge-tracing technology which can pick up on tiny imperfections and transmit them to the plotter as part of the design to be cut. The machine’s sensitivity to detail demands the utmost quality in artwork created with careful precision so curves, curls and corners will cut gorgeously clean.
Peppermint Creative is proud to offer vinyl cutter-ready Vector Shape products with graphics so crisp, even hobbyist craft cutting machines show significant output improvement compared to using regular fonts, dingbats and other digital images. Along with the commitment to offer the highest quality shapes and WordArt, Peppermint Creative is setting a new trend by providing crafters and small business owners the freedom to mix, match and customize their purchased graphic files.
PC’s Commercial EPS WordArt files are not entirely “flattened” and therefore do not limit the vinyl cut to just one color. Instead each component of the design is welded only where lines overlap for proper continuous cutting but accessories are left “loose” for easy moving, flipping and manipulation. Two, three and four-color vinyl cuts are now easy to achieve by simply importing the unwelded EPS file and deleting all but the components needing to be cut in that color. Afterwards the entire vinyl design comes together quickly since spacing has been preserved by using the exact same file for each color cut.
How Peppermint Creative’s Commercial Vector Shapes Benefit Small Business Users:
• WordArt is not simply typed in a font face. Each word and phrase is pieced letter by letter then delicately hand-edited to create a smooth-cutting design that is easy to weed and more visually appealing than what was typed from the original font. In fact, many of the Peppermint Creative word art files incorporate letter forms that do not exist in the parent font because they have been created by the designer especially for that piece of art.
• A three-process optimization technique reduces the number of points along the vector line and decreases the amount of time required to cut the image. Repositionable EPS files have this enhancement on each individual component so speed is not lost, even when cutting in multiple colors.
• Vector based shapes can be endlessly resized while retaining their high image quality. Designers have kept scale in mind so professional vinyl plotters can cut most products in smaller sizes without the cut lines becoming thread-thin. This is not attainable with other unenhanced digital products.
• Commercial Vector Shape packs also include JPG, PNG and Photoshop Vector Shape set files to meet additional business needs. JPGs can be used to instantly view purchased designs and the print-ready PNGs can be added to existing product catalogs quickly and easily. To protect your investment, please save your images for the web at a lower resolution (72 ppi). Many of your competitor’s machines can accept the high resolution JPGs included in your commercial pack if you post them directly online.
