Hi everyone,

Here's the latest with Cuttle.

Retro Glam Cake Topper 🎂

Following up on our Retro Keychain from last week, this new Cake Topper template is perfect for a fabulous party!

Like our other cake toppers, you can change the text and customize other aspects of the design, including the placement of the two stakes.

The template generates a two-layered cut file.

To achieve the plastic fantastic look, we used 1/8” Metallic Hot Pink acrylic for the back and 1/16” White acrylic for the front.

I recommend applying 3M adhesive (look for 467MP, 468MP, or 300LSE) to the back of the text material before cutting. Then you can just peel and stick. This laser-safe double-sided tape forms a strong, clean, water-proof bond.

On the Layered Cut File, the background piece has inset reference lines which you can score to help align the letters. Here are a few tips:

Improved Connected Text 😻

Cuttle’s Connected Text feature automatically joins the dots on i’s and smooshes all the letters together so that you can cut out a word in a single piece, in any font.

This can save a lot of time if you are making hundreds of place cards for a wedding!

We made some tweaks to the algorithm to improve this feature. Before, on some thin script fonts, it would place the dots of i’s in a dubious position. It’s much better now! For example, here’s a before and after in the elegant but thin Meow Script:

New “Project Dashboard” design 🗂️

We updated the project dashboard — what you see when you log in. We now have a “Home” section that shows all of your recently opened projects and popular templates underneath that.

Other Improvements and Fixes 🐞

  • When you search in the Create Panel, multiple words now work (it will search for all of the words with “or” logic).
  • When you search in the Font Picker, it will now automatically search all fonts. Previously it would only search the selected category. You can still narrow your search by clicking a category after typing your search term.
  • Fixed an issue with the Font Picker where if you had chosen a complex font via search, the font would not be shown as selected the next time you opened the Font Picker.
  • Fixed a bug where custom modifier parameter folders were not saved.
  • Fixed the display of vector handles (like we use in Linear Repeat) in some situations.
