Putting out the info for items I can vinyl cut

my current catalog is pictured here:

My catalog continues to grow, and I will post more as I make them - custom cuts can be done upon request

masks can be cut as well, just give me a pattern and I can cut them out to your requested size

only limitation I have is my cutter can only do items about 9.5 x 9.5 inches square, unless specially requested to do them longer

I have a rainbow of colors on hand, and custom colors/patterns can be ordered
(currently only available in black or white for large size - others will take longer to order vinyl)

Xen or fellow admin - feel free to move this to a correct area if needed

What formats do you need files in and do you have low tack materials for masks?

I can see vinyl as useful to say add feather detail to a D7 in 1/2500. Add the vinyl and over paint.

I use CorelDraw X6, but just about any vector file could be loaded into it for scaling it

as for the vinyl, the type I have is the semi-permanent type - they haven't given me any problems if not left on to long

I could get some low-tac - but some I got with the machine didn't stay on very good for me, and I've seen reviews on others that are not good

@loafr;

is this service a chargeable, freebie and/or both?

have you thought about making spray masks for kits?

I can make a 'services for offer' like i think they do on kotf , but i don't know if ast would need separate for freebies and chargeable.

I can charge, just like the decals I print, $10 per full page plus shipping (I use USPS which is $7)
and as the same with the decals - I can trade work for produts

I have done some before for MSgtUSAFRet, but they didn't get use because they were out of scale for his N.S.E.A. Protector Spaceship (I used the 537 refit for a template)

That works for me, get the word out for eveyone that can do work for others
