1) Do a test cut of all your fonts. You don't want to have everything all planned out and then realized the silhouette doesn't cut one of your fonts very easily. Hint 1A would be don't use a thin serif font! Save yourself! The fonts I used (in order) are: Calibri, Arial Black, Rockwell, Century Gothic (bold), and Palatino Lintoype.
2) The brayer is your friend. Use it all over the vinyl before you weed, use it to apply the transfer tape, use it to apply the vinyl. Also your friend is painter's tape and your husband's t-square for easy straight lines.
3) Don't try to use metallic spray paint to cover MDF!!!
