Roland BN-20 printer/cutter - Instructions

Our Roland BN-20 is setup to print onto white vinyl (for stickers) or heat transfer material (for transferring onto fabrics using the heat press).

Basic steps involved in creating a sticker/heat transfer print:

1. Find/draw the image you want to use as an image file. Make sure it is a high resolution (not pixelated)

2. Import the image into an Adobe Illustrator document. Create .25mm cut lines using the CutContour spot colour - this tells the printer where to cut

3. Export the file as an ".eps" file format. Open the file in the VersaStudio printer software (only availible on the printer PC) and print your design
