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.
