For your pre-spaced writings and logos you will have to provide us with one file only where the cut path is on a different layer from the graphic designs.

Once your graphic design has been created and the shape that it shall have has been designed, remember to place the graphic design(s) 5mm over the entered Cut and to place one cut line at least 3mm away from the other one so as to have a perfect cut.
Remember to set the colour named CutContour, that you will use to design the cut, as SpotColor.Download the example file
