I could have also printed each layer separately but I didn't feel like it. It's kinda like screen printing. Note: Had I printed out each layer individually I would have been able to combine the two post-cutting onto the same backing with a tricky application of transfer tape.
I preferred to combine the two on the actual surface itself because it is easier Cut a piece of vinyl about a half-inch bigger than the design. Since I had a remarkably curvy piece of vinyl, I taped it to my cutting surface. The aforementioned benefit of having a small portable cutting surface. If the vinyl isn't too curly I usually don't tape it down as it allows for easier manipulation of the project when cutting. Tape the template to the vinyl as flush and in as many places as you can.
If you have big empty spaces in the middle of your design, cut a hole in it and tape the middle too. As you start cutting you'll find the paper moving a lot. The more anchor points, the less this happens.
Small pieces of tape make it easier to remove the template afterwards. This is the tedious part. This is what gives you the hand cramps and finger calluses. If you get a headache from straining the eyes or focusing too much, take a break. You don't have to finish it all at once.
I've had more than one sticker take several days the Pirate Bay logo on my truck was a nightmare to cut! All those sail ropes and wooden slats on the hull! Opposite what most people think, it's actually the smaller decals that are harder to cut and take more time than the big ones. The larger ones are trickier to put on, but that's later Tips for cutting: - This step is where you have freedom of interpretation.
When doing a detailed work, you may want to round corners, ignore small details or straighten edges. This is the last step for creative input on the design. If you cut the border first you'll have to tape it back to cut the inside part. Also, better to overlap cut-lines on corners for example than to leave a gap.
Re-tracing cuts when you're picking and the template is off is a pain. If you cut through the paper, you can fix it by taping the back see pic description when you're done.
After a while and depending on the thickness of the vinyl and template paper you'll find the right depth. Until the blade dulls, that is, and you replace it with a new one. Then you're cutting all the way to the table until you adjust all over again. However, it's important not to get complacent and forget where you are in the cutting.
Take glimpses at the whole picture occasionally to make sure you're on the right track. It's easy to get tunnel vision when you're just looking at the lines. The paper gets in the way and your repair cuts won't be as clean. This part used to daunt me in the beginning because I was afraid I wouldn't know which parts to pick out and which to leave. As long as you made your cuts right, pick a negative space or outside piece to start from and the rest solves itself as there should be no adjacent pieces.
Start by cutting the border into sections to make removal easier if you have a design with a complex edge. If your design is a circle or something, obviously you don't have to do this although you still may. Then just pick a piece with the tweezers and begin.
I find the corners are usually the easiest places to grab from. Once you have the design picked, you can go over it and trim edges or line up straight lines.
When applying the tape, make sure the decal is flat tape it down if you must or else it will distort. Start at one end and slowly roll it down, following the tape with your fingers to make sure it is completely flush and there are no creases or bubbles. Bubbles aren't too big a deal on transfer tape, but wrinkles are. They are hard to fix once the tape touches the vinyl, especially if you have a detailed decal. If the decal is larger or has big spacious pieces, then it may be easier to fix on the spot.
Very happy with my results! The website was easy to use, the team was friendly and quick to respond, the shipping was very fast came early , and my vinyl looked and sounded amazing! Gorgeous record and incredible customer service when I came across any issues. Jon Abbas 08 Aug Just want to share the joy and excitement I received from the process of creating my own Vinyl for someone special. What you and your Team has provided is an amazing way to keep in contact with people we care about and when they will listen to the music, it will help us connect on many different levels.
Lizzy Fox 22 Feb One of the songs ends kind of early on Side B but apart from there it seems okay. I was very happy that our Vinylify records were here in the USA in only a fortnight! So much quicker than ever expected! The records arrived safe and sound!
Speaking of sound; WOW. The records sound just wonderful. Thank you again for so prompt service! Paul Douglas Roadhouse Strangers. Fantastic company, they regularly checked in to make sure my record has arrived and was doing well, they notified me when it was running a bit late. If you're looking for a personalised record this is the place to get it. Raf Russell 11 Oct Never heard of Vinylify before, having looked at a few places to get a record of my own material pressed, this was definitely the most streamlined and easy to understand process.
It also allowed more song time per side than any other online record pressing site I had seen, which was important as we play proggy stuff.
I bought one record as a gift for the other musician who worked on the album and it arrived with the proper formatting within about a week and a half of ordering and it sounds great! Even better than the CD version. My only criticism is that the price can be prohibitive if you are looking to press a large amount of vinyl but that seems to be the case no matter where you go. I definitely recommend.
Chris Bauer 10 Aug Item was shipped by seller very quickly but was delayed somewhere along the shipping process Vinylify customer service was very quick to respond and the vinyl did eventually make it here Will definitely buy again. I know nothing about mixing music or making records. I found out about them only several weeks before my boyfriend's birthday and I explained that I wanted to make a vinyl with our favorite songs and that I was concerned I wouldn't receive it in time I live in the US.
They responded right away and gave me my options and were very helpful, letting me know the status of my vinyl every step of the way. I had to shorten some of the songs and make transitions because I wanted more songs than would fit onto the vinyl. As I said, I have no experience in that area. I got the vinyl and listened to it and it sounded SO great.
I was more than thrilled with the result. Amanda Estes 01 Aug Great customer service and the record was great quality! I'm very happy with my purchase. Junyan Pan 28 Jul The customized vinyl that they make are in really good quality, will consider making more in future.
Steven turrell 19 May I am very pleased with the record vinylify made for me which was a gift for my dads 60th. A great service quick and easy to use website I would highly recommend to anyone. Great job. Anton Bal 07 Jul
