I have been working on this project in my head for quite some time, but have finally gotten it done tonight. This is a car decal that I created using Photoshop, SCAL, and my Cricut. Now I know that SCAL is the "program that shall not be named", but I truely love that it expands the abilities of my Cricut machine. I am a true lover of all things ProvoCraft. I have a baby bug, expression, imagine, cricut cake machine, yudu, and yourstory along with about 100 cartridges and 2 gypsys. If that doesn't scream customer loyalty I don't know what does. That said, PC's products do not allow me to create my own projects, so when I need to I turn to SCAL
Here is the image in SCAL. I set it up to cut 4 logos on a sheet of 12 x 12 vinyl. For the vinyl I ordered some glossy white Orcal vinyl for outdoor use. According to the manufactur it should last 3-7 years when applied outdoors. I let my Cricut do the work from here. After it was cut I carefully cut into 4 seperate pieces so the images can be used individually. Then carefully weeded the image. I cleaned the window of my car with baby wipes to remove the dirt and grime then with rubbing alcohol to ensure it was really clean. I used transfer tape to apply the weeded image to my car. That's pretty much it. If you have any specific questions just let me know and I will be happy to answer them.
