There was a time when I spent many hours in front of a die cut machine with those heavy levers. There was so much time spent lining up paper, finding the right die, just to realize that what you cut out isn’t exactly what you wanted. Now a days, I have a Cricut that pushes die cutting to a whole new world. With the Cricut I’m able to design anything and then get it cut out for me. Here are some tips.
- Use vector images.
- Make sure the image has high resolution (do not use stuff you find on the web).
- Keep your mat clean.
- Replace your blade.
