Metamark Digital Vinyl offers a very high level of performance and is effectively used of flat or curved surfaces and has a durability of 5 years. Our eco solvent ink has a 3 to 5 year UV rating. Making it suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Cutting Vinyl with your cutting machine

  1. Place vinyl liner side down onto cutting mat.
  2. Select images and size and load the mat into the machine.
  3. Refer to Machine Kiss Cut Guide below to adjust machine settings.
  4. We recommend doing a small test cut before starting any new project to make sure your cut settings are correct.

Preparation with Transfer Tape

  1. Remove the negative pieces from each of the images leaving the liner intact. This process is called weeding. Using a weeding tool can make this process faster and easier.
  2. Gently place the Transfer Tape (adhesive side down) over your images. To prevent bubbles, start in the centre and move out toward the edges. Use a craft stick or a vinyl scraper to burnish (rub or polish) the tape onto the vinyl.
  3. Peel away the vinyl liner at a 45-degree angle. If the vinyl does not separate from the liner, simply burnish the Transfer Tape onto the vinyl and peel away again.

Application

  1. Make sure your project surface is clean dry. Carefully place the Transfer Tape with vinyl images onto your surface as you would like them to appear.
  2. Now burnish Transfer Tape onto the surface, starting in the centre and moving out toward the edges. Use a craft stick or scraper.
  3. Peel the Transfer Tape away from the vinyl at a 45-degree angle. If the vinyl sticks to the Transfer Tape, simply burnish the vinyl onto the surface again. Then continue to peel the Transfer Tape away from the vinyl.
