If you were like I was you probably have no idea what the term weld even means! ha! :) So I’ll show you. When you type out a word using your Silhouette software you’ll notice that some of your letters will automatically overlap.

At each spot the letters overlap your Silhouette machine will cut. So instead of having one solid piece of vinyl or paper your word will be cut into much smaller segments. With vinyl that is usually not a huge deal, and you can hardly tell unless you look really close. Buuuut with paper that would be a totally different story. Your word would be in pieces & unusable.

To fix this & make this word one solid shape you will just click on the word, and then click on the weld button at the bottom left hand side of your screen. Then like magic all your overlapping lines are gone! Yay! :)

Now you have one solid shape to work with. Awesome! ;)image

Then you’ll send your design to your Silhouette to cut. That’s it! So easy!

  1. And then if you are feeling like a perfectionist you can edit the points to make the merge smoother. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.
