The key is in the ordering from the cutter as the words come ready spaced so you need to know the size of the finished words both height and length. The other options available are numerous so you need to pick font, colours,shading etc. I looked carefully at the Silber on Automatix and got as near as I could to the original. The cost for both words was only £6 and they arrived in five days.
You need, masking tape,a measure,a fine water spray and an old credit card as a spatula
clean the surface you are going to work on removing all grease,dust etc
measure the position of the word both height and length and mark with tape add a thin strip of masking tape to the top of the word and apply it to the machine ,folding it back to form a hinge spray the surface your going to use with soapy water
peel back the backing paper leaving the letters attached to the front paper, note;- the letters are individual and not joined together,if one moves the others will not Make sure to keep the hinged front paper clear of the machine at this stage, its an idea to use something to hold it back,Ive simply used a pair of scissors.
Starting in the middle use your spatula to press down the letters onto the case smoothing out the water and air at the same time Once this is done to your satisfaction you can start to slowly peel back the front paper,remember,the letters are NOT joined together,treat each one separately when removing the paper. NOTE:- using this,safer WET method it may be best to allow the word to dry before removing the front paper,on small words and with practice this is not always the case.
Air bubbles can be removed with a pin and a certain amount of re-positioning can be done when using the WET method.(at this point BP will make a rude comment ) On this Rotomint there was not a single air bubble and all the letters went on in the correct place.
Once the word is complete use the spatula to press the letters down firmly and your done
