How Decals Are Made

After designing the logos as a vector using adobe illustrator, the files are transferred to sign blazer as an eps file, this allows me to change the size of the logo without distorting it.

Here's a Relentless logo ready to send to the vinyl cutter.

This picture shows the vinyl cutter which can cut decals up to 600mm wide.

After the vinyl is cut, we start a process called weeding, this is the process to remove the excess vinyl so that the logo is left.

The vinyl is carefully peeled back.

Any small parts of vinyl are removed using a sharp knife, below the centre of the d is being removed.
