CONTOUR CUTTING AND CUTTING TECHNOLOGY FILM
1. WHAT IS CONTOUR CUTTING?
Contour cutting – is the process of cutting out images, shapes or contours on vinyl film with high precision and detail. This method is widely used in the production of vinyl stickers and graphic elements such as logos, letters, images and other design elements. Contour cutting allows you to create stickers of different shapes and sizes, making it an indispensable tool for advertising, marketing and design.
The contour cutting process is done using special equipment such as a cutting plotter or cutting machine. These are equipped with a sharp blade or cutting tool that follows the contours of the image given in the design file. It is important to note that contour cutting is not limited to straight lines or simple shapes. It is capable of cutting complex curves and details, making it a versatile method of creating various graphic elements.
So, contour cutting is a key step in creating vinyl stickers and graphic elements, allowing you to achieve high quality and individuality in production.
Benefits of contour cutting include:
- Multiple sizes available: Contour cutting allows you to create stickers and graphics in a variety of sizes, from small labels to large banners.
- High precision and detail: This method provides precise material processing, even the most intricate and minute details on the vinyl film.
- Custom Design: Contour cutting allows you to create unique designs, which is especially important for personalizing products and promotional materials.
- Simplicity and speed: The contour cutting process is automated, this speeds up production and ensures high work efficiency.
- Wide selection of materials: You can use different types of vinyl film, including different colors, textures and types, to create different graphic elements.
So, contour cutting is a key step in the creation of vinyl stickers and graphic elements, allowing you to achieve high quality and individuality in production.

3. PRODUCTION OF FULL COLOR STICKERS FROM uaGraphix
After printing, the finished design is loaded onto our large format cutting plotter to further apply the cut line to the image along the contour. This process is performed with high precision, ensuring excellent quality full-color stickers.
The process of applying the cut line after printing:
- Material alignment: The material is initially aligned using optical positioning based on a laser level. This allows precise synchronization of the special marks that are applied to the edges of the printed design during printing.
- Scanning the material: The material is then scanned to determine possible misalignment. This ensures that the material is correctly positioned inside the plotter and is ready for accurate and even application of the cut line.
- Mark Scanning: The cutting plotter scans special marks located at the edges of the printed design. This allows you to determine the exact coordinates of the contour cut. The process is fully automated and eliminates possible inaccuracies resulting from scanning or other errors caused by human error.
- Applying the cut line: After scanning the marks, the contour cutting process begins. Our plotters work with great speed and precision to create a precise and professional contour cut, respecting the given coordinates.
