Ok, I'm ready to cut my first vinyl lettering for my wall art.

Question: I have a Cricut Expression, I'm using "Cricut Cuttables Adhesive-Backed 3 mil Vinyl"
What Pressure (Low, Med, High) and what cutting blade number (I'm guessing "4"? ) Thanks for your help!!

I mainly use my expression for vinyl cuts and I would normally use 3, 3, and 3. But I recently have been purchasing a different type of vinyl and have had to change my settings around.... I used old scrap vinyl that (color I would normally never use) and tested out small parts of it... I hope this helps.... Good luck!

I had to alter by vinyl settings for my Gypsy, as well. Are you going through either DS or Gypsy?

You might also try <aboverubiesstudio>, I've read that she has a chart for settings for cutting all different kinds of materials. She has a lot of tutorials, etc, for those of us starting out, too. I'm going there someday, if I could just get off this board!!

HTH!
