Re: Tiled printing in x5

Freddie, I am totally a novice to this stuff as well but I've done A LOT of multi-tiled items, some as wide as 8-50" sections on the side of trailers. I normally design my work at 10% of the actual size and set my machine (a DC-4) to 1000% output. That makes the whole design process easier on my PC....

Re: COREL and FLEXI

As a member that has benefited from the usual Muts "send it to me" reply, I want to remind you that your help, and everyone else's, is greatly apprec...

Re: LED signs play key role in building brand

This is the trend in the amusement industry... It's by far the most impressive piece of equipment fitted with LED lighting.

Just an fyi... the light package was about $175,000 to install.

Blurring edges of a curve

How do I blur the edges of a shape (curve) in Corel? I want to take an image and create a larger, white boundry around it that is faded into the background design, kind of like done in photos. I've tried the transparency feature, however, it only does it in the 6 or so styles availabe (radial, conic...

Re: Another food trailer

This is the completed trailer... I will post a video of the lighted sign at some point this weekend; the letters are white LED and the outer border is a multi-color LED.

Re: Scratches in print on Clear and Static

Check to see if there is oil on the threaded rod that moves the print head from side to side. Every now and then, a drop of oil will fall off the rod onto the printed surface; as the head moves across, the oil prevents the transfer to the media. With the machine open, try taking a rag and rubbing th...

Another food trailer

This is the top marquee for a food trailer we're redoing... 24' long by 8' high. CMY on the 3M premium vinyl done in Corel X4 and covered, thanks to a quick call to Muts, in Arlon's 3220 laminate... I will be working on the base portion of the trailer some time next week... http://img21.imageshack.u...
