Cutting Multiple Layer Designs Using CutStudio

For applications such as team numbers and vehicle graphics, using two or more layers of color is a great way to enhance your vinyl decal. In order to easily design and create this type of graphic, follow these easy steps.

  1. Create registration marks in the bottom corners of your design.
  2. Next use the select tool to choose both registration marks plus the layer of your design you want to cut first.
  3. Then open the cutting window and check the “selection” box before hitting OK. Only the layer selected will be cut at this time.
  4. Repeat the process with all other layers in the design using the registration marks to line each layer up for perfect registration of your finished piece.

Voila! You now have your multi-layered decal for your garment or sign.
