Cutlines are a critical factor in sticker production. They act as a road map for our plotters to follow as they cut out your stickers.
Imagine for a second that you’re driving a car and you start driving on a winding road. Smooth curves allow you make accurate, controlled turns and stay on course. What happens when you come across sharp turns? You lose a certain amount of control and overcompensate, you go off course, and there’s even the potential for errors that might result in a crash.
On a plotter, the circumstances remain the same. In order to cut stickers in a clean, accurate way we need smooth paths to navigate. Sharp turns result in mis-cut stickers, slower production, and sloppy results. Check out the above examples for reference.
