Every few months I go on a print & cut project spree. I almost always start with Adobe Illustrator and vector art. Each time I have to remember the best way to set up cut paths and print bleeds all over again. So I never waste this time again, here are some notes-to-self – I hope you find them helpful.
Graph paper with 1/8 inch, 1/4 inch, 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 0.5 cm, and 1 cm grids. Sized to print on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Great for homework & project planning. Print as much as you need. Print only what you need.
I do paper & knotting projects and have found lots of uses for these circular ‘pie slice’ guides – especially the odd numbers. Sized to print on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Outer circle is 7.5″.
While learning Adobe Illustrator, I made these for a friend who colors to relax. The designs are a medium size – small enough to make cool patterns & big enough to be relaxing. They’re made to print edge-to-edge on 8.5″ x 11″ paper. A great way to print just the patterns you want on the paper of your choice.
