Welcome to August! Silhouette has a new promotion for us, but first, I have a fun project to show you.
I had my logo on my rear car window for quite a while, but I wasn’t thrilled with the font, and it had .net instead of .com. I figured it was time to remedy that when Silhouette sent me some great Premium Vinyl. (for indoor/outdoor use)
My car had been sitting in the sun, so I moved it to the shade and washed the back window. ewwww it was pretty dirty!
While the car was cooling off, I got busy designing my project in the Designer Edition software. You can see that I have the rulers visible.
I cut the vinyl and weeded the oodles and boodles.
I placed the transfer paper on top of the vinyl letters and found the center and marked it.
It was time to find the center of the window. I marked it with some painter’s tape.
You can see that it was lined up perfectly on the center, but I needed to adjust it to make sure it was level.
To make sure it was level, I used the lines of my defroster.
I burnished my transfer paper to make sure it had a good hold of the vinyl.
I carefully removed the slick backing and allowed the transfer paper to hang by the hinge that I made with the painter’s tape.
I then carefully laid the transfer paper up on the window and burnished it down.
When I remove transfer paper, I like to fold it back on itself. I think it helps to not pull the letters off.
Slowly, I continue to remove the transfer paper.
voila! doesn’t it look great? It’s the same font as my header logo.
I started to crop myself out of this picture, but keeping it real, I decided to leave it. It was hot, and I had my hair off my face and neck to try to stay cool.
I really do love it!
