Heather Grimstead's Profile
I first fell in love with digital cutters (vinyl cutters) while visiting museums. While other visitors studied the exhibits, I studied the explanations in beautiful fonts on the wall. A graphic designer at the time, it didn't take much research to discover that museums use vinyl cutters to create that text. Now, wall decals are super popular and can be found in lots of options.
I finally broke down and bought a digital cutter while working on annual banquet decorations with my mom and sister. Rather than using vinyl, I primarily cut cardstock shapes to create decorations, favors, and letters. I was so disappointed when the project ended that I opened my Etsy shop so that I could create new paper decorations year-round.
Most designs begin as drawings in Adobe Illustrator, a companion program to Adobe Photoshop. The layers and colors of the design are pulled apart…
