How to make a two colour decal in silhouette studio

Posted on 6th January 2019
1- Open your silhouette studio, open your files.

2- Layer the 2 designs you want to create on top of each over.

3- With the top layer (text) selected, click on the offset tool.

4- Create a very small offset, no more than 0.04

5- With the offset still selected, also select the bottom part of the design, then go to Modify and click subtract.

6- There is now a very fine gap between the bottom and top layer. This way you can lay the vinyl and not have the bulk.

7- Select everything, right click and group.

8- When you cut your vinyl you need to line it up. To do this we need to create our own registration marks. Select the rectangle tool.

9- Create a small rectangle.

10- Right click on the rectangle and duplicate it.

11- Select the 2nd rectangle.

12- Move the rectangle to the other side of the design and align. Select both, right click and group.

13- Fill the rectangles with colour.

14- Go to the send screen. Click fill colour option. Then tick one colour and the black registration rectangle we created. Send to the silhouette.

15- Repeat the above step, this time select the 2nd colour and the registration rectangles.

Send to the silhouette.

16- Your 2 pieces will cut as below.

17- Line up the registration rectangles and then layer your design.
