Default how do i cut a glow in the dark vinyl Image? The original image is two colors. One color is the shirt color.

Hello. I am very new and have a million questions. I will only ask a few for now. Lol. I have a logo that is black and white that I want to put on a black shirt in glow in the dark vinyl. I have no I deal where to start. How do I cut the logo where the black of the shirt will fill the black spaces of the image? How do I separate the layers of black and white? Basically I need a total walk through. That will pretty much answer all the questions I have if I had a walk through. Please point me in the right direction.

Also the image is not a Vector file. I Believe it was created in Photo Shop. My husband and I are new to Corel Draw X7, but my husband is familiar with Photo Shop. How we convert the image into a vector file? I read something about a PNG file? Hows does that relate to creating a vector file?

I have Corel Draw X7, Photo Shop CS2, and Sure Cuts A Lot Pro 3 with a Laser Pointe II Cutter from US Cutter.

Thanks in advance for all help. This newbie definitely appreciates it.

Import the pic into cd redraw it with the biezier tool, delete the imported pic when done, export the completed file as a .eps export the file into your cutting software then weed the black away done...

Without a vector file you will have major issues. Some cutting SW will allow you to load a bitmap and it will extract the cutlines. You can then choose the areas you want to print. Load your GITD media - cut in reverse(mirror) then you good to go.

Actually you are making the project. Not everyone knows how to use the bezier tool. Why redraw, not sure of poster's program or design, but I can put it in CutStudio and get my cutlines. Your way could possibly have them waste a lot of vinyl if there is a lot of black, when it is only necessary to cut the white. But there is so many ways to get the same thing done.

the Bezier tool will take you a long time to perfect if your not familiar with it, or any of the drawing tools, never heard of a bitmap being able to cut, but if it works....just a little bit to get you started
