Create your writing with a vector-based graphics software such as Adobe Illustrator® and convert to paths. And there you go! The file created will be ready to be attached to your order in PDF format.

Pay attention to sizeDon’t forget that, in order for your pre-spaced writings and logos to be reproduced and cut, all the characters shall be at least 2cm high and 4mm thick. Moreover, the space between two graphic elements shall be at least 2mm.
