Customizing your class project:

Our project for the evening will be a small 4”x4” acrylic sign, all materials are included.  Part of the class includes preparing your logo for cutting so please bring a laptop with you and install the free vector editing software: Inkscape.  You can download this here: https://inkscape.org/release/inkscape-0.92.4/   For Mac users, please follow this tutorial on installing Inkscape: https://www.651vinyl.com/how-to-install-inkscape-windows-or-mac.html

If you have a specific logo or image in mind, please be sure it is in .ai, .svg, or .dxf format.  You may also download a logo (in one of the formats mentioned) for the internet; A good, free site for these images is www.vecteezy.com. Occasionally, we can work with other file types. We will demonstrate how to convert files into the above formats during class but try to have a backup image or two in case we are unable to convert your logo.
