When selecting a font for exact cut graphics avoid fonts with really intricate cut paths. Since this type of graphic is cut exactly to the graphic element and/or lettering. Therefore, leaving no outline to make the sticker one piece. We require a minimum width of .07″ for stokes & fine lines in your graphics. Also, any gaps between letters and shapes must be at least .07″ thick.
Fonts with Distressed, Chalkboard, Thin handwriting or sketch type are not appropriate for this type of graphic. These styles usually create very erratic shapes and thicknesses. For best results try to make more solid shapes when setting up files for exact cut graphics. If you are creating an outlined sticker as one piece. You can skip this guideline.
If you choose to add sharp thin elements to your artwork. We cannot guarantee the quality for your decal. For best results, we suggest rounding your shapes or making thick solid lines that are greater than .125″.
If elements in your design have sharp points, small cuts, or really fine lines unexpected results may occur. Also, files setup for an exact cut may not contain any clipping masks.
We also try to stay away from tight lined patterns. If you are looking to have a pattern cut that has multiple lines less than 1/4 inch we could experience problems. As you can see in the pattern above these lines would be very difficult to install from transfer tape, because they are so thin.
If you absolutely need it smaller or don’t know how to check. Please send your file to us, and a professional graphic designer will take a look to see if we can make it happen.
