    When using prepared paper with one colored side, be sure to attach the paper with the white side facing up.

  2. Adjust the blade extension according to the paper.
    Adjust the blade extension according to the thickness of the prepared paper, such as a setting of 3.5 for 150 g/m2 paper and a setting of 4 for 200 g/m2 paper.
    (1)Turn to the left to decrease the blade extension.

    (2) Turn to the right to increase the blade extension.
    If too much of the blade is extended, the blade may break or the mat may be cut. When increasing the blade extension, adjust it in increments of half a marking, and then perform trial cutting.

  3. Insert the holder into the carriage, and push down on the holder lock lever.

  4. Adjust the cutting pressure.
    When using 150 g/m2 to 200 g/m2 paper, set the cutting pressure to 0.


  5. Touch the "OK" key.

  6. Press image to load the mat with the thick paper, and press Start/Stop button.

  7. Touch the "OK" key if the sheet is cut cleanly.



    If the paper is not cut cleanly, touch the "Cancel" key.
    Repeatedly perform trial cutting and adjust the blade extension until the material is cut cleanly.
