It could be that the font was to intricate, any ideas for elegant fonts that will cut nicely,using mtc, I think i was using edwardian script.Mind you being that it is a new blade i may have had too much pressure.
The more intricate, the larger the size you need to make the letters/design in order for it to turn out well.
Which is why a lot of people have purchased the Jasmine font cartridge and complained about it... Because you just canNOT cut it small while keeping it whole.
How large/small were you trying to make your letters? Edwardian is very intricate for the uppercase letters, so I just can't see it cutting well for a height of less than probably 1.5" or more (that is, if you're constraining the proportions and not enlongating or shortening the letters).
I concur (love that word!) CMLeach. Blackladder is 1 in and up. any smaller and issues arise! A new mat sometimes works as well if you need it smaller. Trial and error, I hate to say it! If you are using a pricey cardstock you may want to consider the bigger font size and leave it at that.
