Running self-adhesive vinyl through my Cricut for the first time. (I usually stick with cardstock/cardboard.)

If all goes well I'll have decals to hand out to members of my after school club.

If it doesn't go well, I'll have ruined a 12x12 sheet of vinyl, but I'll have learned something.

"But Aaron," you ask, "Why didn't you try a small scale test so you would waste hardly any vinyl at all?"

Because I didn't think about it until after I started the cutting process, that's why.


There were two settings for vinyl, but considering how cheap this 3rd party stuff was I was correct in assuming it was the thinner setting.
