   to "cut out" your design

  a polished look

Tips for cutting Shimmer
Slow down the blade for Graphtec users.  When we cut Shimmer I use force 17 and slow down to 3.
For Roland GX users, use the "Two Pass" setting under cutting options.
Mimaki CJV users, set speed to 30 centimeters per second, pressure at 67 grams and offset to .5 millimeters.


As we continue to learn more about different cutters, I will post it here.  Please let us know if you have any advise you'd like to share here.

Because of variations in monitors, color samples may appear different on different monitors. Computer monitors differ from screen to screen. Since it is not possible to guarantee our online colors will look the same on all computers, we do not guarantee that what you see accurately portrays the color of the actual product. We do our very best to make sure Monkey Grip examples are as close to the exact product as possible, but cannot guarantee that what you see is an exact sample.
