Test Cutting Mats to Ensure Excellent Custom Lettering
What is the old adage? Measure twice, cut once? Today we were incorporating a newer technique–using our computerized mat cutter to draw letters upon a frame design. In order to make sure that the final product was exactly right, tried out a couple of sizes and fonts before cutting the real deal.
This video is a demonstration of our Wizard 9000 pen tool. We were able to design and direct the machine to add a Bible verse to the bottom of a mat that was used in to frame a hockey jersey from Miami of Ohio. The framed jersey was a gift from his parents and the Bible verse is sort of a family motto.
At Frame Minnesota:
Hey, it’s Tami at Frame Minnesota, here in Eagan, Minnesota. And right now, I am using a computerized mat cutter, we have got the Wizard 9000Z. And what I’m doing is a test cut, just to make sure I like all the lettering and the spacing that I’m going to be incorporating into a jersey project later today.
There’s a good story behind this quote, but I’ll share that another time.
We can cut five or six different- We can cut a whole bunch of different kinds of lettering on a mat, but now I can do drawing right on the mat with different types of lettering. This is a scrap mat just so that I can get everything exactly the way I want it.
That’s all for now, Tami at Frame Minnesota.
