How to Remove Sticker Residue To Prep for Vinyl Decals

I get asked all the time the how to remove stickers from 'blanks' so vinyl decals can be applied.

Do a Google or Pinterest search and you'll find countless ideas for how to take off stickers and remove sticker residue. Finally I think we can put this to rest!  Silhouette School monthly contributor Cat from Pocketful of Posies is here today to share the hands down best way to take off stickers. 

Custom Printed Vinyl Decals: Silhouette Pixscan Tutorial Hack

You guys this might be my best idea yet...and for those of you who sell, make lots of the color vinyl decals or layered htv design, or just don't care to layer lots and lots of vinyl and HTV decals - this Silhouette tutorial hack is going to leave you speechless.

I've figured out a way to print any design multiple times on a single sheet of Oracal 651 vinyl and then cut out each of the designs to create individual decals.  Whether you run a Silhouette business or not, this is a huge time, material, and money saver for anyone who needs to create multiple copies of the same custom vinyl decals.

Think about if you had a large order of tumblers, mugs, or shirts that all had the same decal design which required a lot of layering. Or perhaps you have a popular seller that slows you down because it's time consuming to cut and layer each one. With this hack you could have several custom vinyl decals printed on the same sheet of vinyl and then you could just cut them all at the same time and apply the personalization quickly.

Combining the power of Sparkle Berry Ink's Custom Design Upload tool to create custom printed vinyl, Pixscan, and Silhouette CAMEO or Portrait I think we can all agree this is a real game changer.

What is Kerning: Silhouette Studio Text Tutorial

In case you haven't noticed, there's an oft-overlooked tool hidden in the Text Style tool in Silhouette Studio. The Kerning feature helps adjust the spacing of text characters that might otherwise be too close together...but it's different than the character spacing tool.

So what is Kerning anyway? Good question.   I'm not even going to lie and try to act like this is a super interesting topic...but it is one that I get asked about from time to time, in regards to Silhouette Studio, so I figured I'd share.

Transferring Photos to Wood with Silhouette Temporary Tattoo Paper

A few weeks ago I shared a cool trick on using Silhouette Temporary Tattoo paper on stone tiles to make coasters...and I got a lot of questions about whether the same method would work on wood.

Am I the only Silhouette Mint Stamp Machine owner who is a little sad there is not a dust cover for the Mint?

I figured if Silhouette America isn't going to make one and offer it - I may as well do it myself.

Why Use Silhouette Sketch Pens Rather than Print?

I get asked quite a bit about why you could want to use Silhouette Sketch Pens rather than simply printing.

It's a fair question...and one that I often think about as I spend time laying out, fiddling with sketch fills, and then sketching a sketch pen design - when I could simply print it in a quarter of the time.
