What kind of die cut is this?
 
I bought several of these die cuts years ago off of eBay (the race cars)
sorry for the bad photo They are one-dimensional, they have no layers. It's just one shape that's colored.. So I'm not sure exactly if they're called a dicut or something else.

And is this something you make on a cricut or silhouette or just from your home printer I'm not even sure how they're made.

It is something that I might be interested in making for my scrapbooks. Just curious if they're easy to make and if you have to print them on your own printer I'm sure it uses a ton of ink. I really like them but I'm completely clueless on how to make them. LOL

It's hard to tell from the photo if they are a premade die cut from a company or a print and cut from an electronic die cutting machine.

Lots of scrapbooking companies make shaped images like this or you can use a Silhouette or Cricut with a printer at home for print and cut (which is really easy to make once you buy the image).

Thanks. From what I can remember, I believe the lady who sold them, actually made them. So I'm assuming the print/cut from a machine. Wouldn't that use a ton of ink though?

Looking at the image, there really isn't much colour to them, so it's not going to use a lot of ink. You'd use way more printing a photograph, and even that isn't a lot really. :)

I agree with Shazsilverwolf. Whether or not it seems like a lot of ink is, I guess, all relative, depending on how much printing you generally do.


Back when I used to only print out typed documents, printing anything coloured seemed extravagant to me! Then I went through a complete opposite phase where I was printing out digital patterned papers and photos. Now I'm somewhere in between.


It could also be that since now that there are things like cloud storage and online document systems, I mainly turn on the printer for crafting (who'd a thunk?) and haven't thought as much about ink use... Hmm, that's interesting!
