Here is a design on A4 paper size. Click this button to add the registration mark and cutting area mark. The cutting area is shown as a red square in which must place your design. Anything outside this area won't be cut.
The red square won't print and when you print, You will see a message saying "Visible but no-printable layers" at print window, it's by design.
Design your cutting line in hairline or in a solid fill area. Use either of these methods or else you will get a double cut.
Print your design on a normal home or office printer that is suitable to print your sticker paper. Now feed all of them face up into the ADF -- Auto Sheet Feeder in the back of the machine.

Since our V-Auto Label Cutter is based on our V-Auto Vinyl Cutter to perform contour cutting, the way of setting up the blade and blade holder is the same.As is pressure and speed adjustment. You can find videos about such tasks at sortit.co.za, Our training video website.
Now in CorelDRAW, select the lines you would like to cut, then press contour cutting button, btw, the button next to the contour cutting button is for normal cut, if you just want blank, non-printed sticker and then use this button.
If the preview is fine, press start. You will see the V-Auto Label Cutter start loading the first page and trying to locate the registration mark, which is the way machine knows where to cut. The registration mark is located at all four corners and this is to make sure all distortions have been picked up and considered during cutting. Once all registration marks are found, it will cut two lines outside the corner of first registration mark, not only to calibrate the accuracy, but also to adjust the blade angle for the cutting.
Here is the cutting process, simple and easy. Once the first page is finished, the label cutter will load the next page and repeat the process.
The paper we are cutting is normal sticker paper which can be purchased from most general stationary stores.
Lets try another.
Brown kraft sticker paper, load and cut. Perfect sticker for gift wrapping.
How about Glossy finish transparent film, load and cut.
Actually most "buy 2 get 1 free" stickers found in retail stores are made on this kind of media.
And lastly, let's try something difficult. This is a silver coated reflecting paper like a mirror. Many drink packaging companies use this kind of sticker.
If you feel that it is difficult to pickup the registration mark, use the the adjusting wheel for the laser, and pay attention to the lights, they will flicker when the registration marks are found. They remain on when marks are not found and off when they are found.
Make sure there is no prints below the eye, and turn the wheel counterclockwise until the light goes off. Then turn the wheel clockwise gently until lights is back on, then turn slightly a little more. Now press enter and the cutter will try the reading process again.
Now all registration marks have been found and the silver stickers cutting process is starting. See that? Isn't that remarkable?
