How do I prepare my
dater for cut-plotting?

Oh boy were do I start?! The machine only works with CS5 .ai or .eps files. Your font size should’t be smaller than 30pt. So in this case bigger is better.

Your content should be converted to vector dater and get ungrouped.
By the way, will Photoshop also work? No, unlike Illustrator, Photoshop renders pixel graphics. This type of dater is lacking the X and Y axis coordinates needed by the cut-plotter.

For calculating the width of the plott use this simple formula. Document width: max. 580mm if: the plotter
foil width equals 630mm. If not: individual foil width minus 50mm!

Do I have to buy my own foil?
Yes! Plotterinsel is a good source. On request the shop offers express shipping within 48 hours What about transfer foil? We usually stock both 60cm and 30cm wide foil.

How much is it
going to set me back?

1,50 Euro base price plus material.
One meter of transfer foil (60cm)
costs 3,00 Euro. A meter of transfer
foil (30cm) costs 1,00 Euro.
