The Printer:

Use the highest quality matte paper setting available.

The Cricut:

Cut Settings:

     – Paper Stickers use 300 with multi-cut off

     – Vinyl Stickers use 307 with multi-cut at 2x

The Cricut Mat:

You don’t want your mat to be too clean, and therefore too sticky;  but you also don’t want a mat that is too dirty as it won’t stick well enough. 

The Ruler & Felt Strip:

 Use glue or tape to attach your strip of felt to the ruler so that it covers one edge. You will use this DIY Tool for laminating vinyl stickers.
