Yes, you CAN make Pop Out Decals Stickers with FlexiPro and a Q Series Vinyl Cutter
If you sell printed, contour-cut decals, you know that printing and cutting the images is only the first step. Okay, the first two steps. If you’re selling decals, especially at an event like a race or festival, you still have to cut them from the sheet of vinyl to give to your customer.
This can be done manually, or with a trimmer. But wouldn’t it be nice if the vinyl cutter could do that for you?
If it’s a Q Series or Graphtec FC8000 plotter, it can. These advanced machines can perform a standard contour or “kiss cut” around the printed graphic, then cut through the vinyl in a perforated pattern so that you can then pop out the decal and hand it to your customer for them to apply whenever they choose. It’s called Perf cut and it’s pretty nifty option, especially for on demand decals. So how does it work?
GO UNO Troubleshooting Tips for White and Dark T Shirts
The GO UNO LED laser transfer printer has proven itself to be a versatile platform for digital decoration of garments and rigid substrates like mugs and mouse pads. Digital decorators with varying levels of experience are enjoying its ease of use and excellent print quality.
(If you want to see a video overview of the Go Uno process, click here.)
As with any digital transfer process, there are a few tips and tricks that can make the difference between a long learning curve and a quick start to success. When there are orders to fill and things are going right, a simple thing like a T-shirt transfer can seem like scaling Mount Everest.
To help you move those mountains, we offer these GO UNO troubleshooting tips.
T Shirt Vinyl – High Tack vs Low Tack Liner
One of the challenges in using T-shirt transfer film (aka, t shirt vinyl) for garment decoration is learning to adapt to different films. Not all heat transfer films are the same. Many garment decorators want to use the same plotter settings and processes for all their custom Tees. That’s a little like using the same recipe whether you’re cooking chili or lasagna.
Our new EnduraTex Flex T Shirt Vinyl is a film of a different flavor. It serves up very soft and durable graphic Tees and custom apparel; but you may have to change your recipe just a little to get the flavor just right. Like any good recipe, the secret is in the ingredients.
One of the ingredients that differentiates EnduraTEX Flex from our other offerings is the liner. It works a little differently than Easy Weed or Easy Weeding Sport. So is the new EnduraTex Flex better or worse? Like, food, it’s partly a matter of preference.
Here’s how to choose what’s right for you.
Variety is the spice of life.
We added variety to our extensive line of vinyl films a couple of years ago with the addition of MACtac 8900 Pro matte vinyl. MACtac 8900 supports our growing number of customers selling vinyl graphics for interior decor.
Variety is essential in this segment where people may actually use vinyl to decorate the shower stall or the spice rack. This market segment thrives on decorative images and inspirational messages applied to the walls of bedrooms, dens, and kitchens.
MACtac further spiced things up recently with the addition of “mustard” and 15 other new colors. Here’s how the MACtac Designer’s Series of new colors came about.
The GO UNO has been one of our most appealing products for garment decoration. Its quality, versatility, and affordability make it ideal for printing custom T-shirt transfers and decorating gift items.
The GO UNO can be used to print T-shirt transfer for shirts of all kinds and to customize mugs, mouse pads, magnetic sheeting, brushed chrome, Plexiglass and more. It also works with our DarkJet inkjet paper for intense color transfers on dark shirts.

The PrismJET DT has been a revolutionary product. As the only outdoor durable desktop small format printer, it has refocused the sign industry’s attention on the need for a smaller, more affordable way to create graphics that don’t require lamination for long-term outdoor use.
The PrismJET DT program is now in its third year and demand for this unique offering continues to be strong. Despite its success, our commitment to making it the best possible experience for our customers has resulted in continuous upgrades and enhancements. So this PrismJET DTx represents the third generation of this powerful workhorse.
We’re particularly excited about the newest raft of improvements, which have produced the PrismJET DTx. Here’s a brief summary of the updated features and benefits.
