See what our customers have to say...
I have never had so much fun or been so enthusiastic about a program in my life as I am with Inkscape. I'm doing things I would never have dreamed of tackling before, all be it at the baby stage lol!
Inkscape is a powerful and complex program and with the help of excellent tutorials from Black Cat members and on the internet, I have never struggled to use it.
The ease with which you can make designs that are unique, instead of having to resort to using other peoples' or built-in designs, you can truly call yourself a designer!
I would say that it is a 'grown up' piece of software.
Much to my surprise I have really enjoyed learning what a powerful and versatile program Inkscape, is under Dawns guidance and with the pooling of knowledge from the members. We are rapidly building up what will be an extensive resource which will enable us all to get the best from our cutters
The combination of a Black Cat Cougar and Inkscape truly gives one unlimited options for designing cutting templates. As a lover of Photoshop and Illustrator other designing software has left me disappointed in its limitations. Not with Inkscape, a very potent and flexible software for both the beginner and the more advanced user, and of course not forgetting the superb support and video tutorials from Dawn and her team. They will take Inkscape to a realm that is a crafters dream!
Inkscape has proved very successful indeed. Inkscape is powerful and I feel as though I have only touched on what is available to me but, nonetheless, already it has enabled me to do everything I have asked of it. With all the help available on the forum from Dawn and other members it has made the learning process very easy.
Blackcat & Inkscape, GREAT, go get them now!!
Quite a number of crafters know me as a designer of templates and know that I would not give praise if I did not believe it truly deserved. The fantastic Black Cat Cougar Cutter that I purchased from Thyme Graphics is fantastic, both in its appearance and in its cutting strength. It truly is one beautiful machine, well built and beautifully designed. As well the incredible support given by both Dawn and Colin is second to none, never impatient, always there if you need them. The video tutorials produced by Dawn are so beautifully uncomplicated to follow that a beginner can start immediately on receiving their cutter. I cannot recall when I have received such personal support actually, thinking about it, I never have. Purchasing a cutter from Thyme Graphics guarantees that you too can create wonders and if you are into selling either templates or die-cuts then you will produce items that buyers will come back for again and again. Moreover, another bonus is the marvellous templates created by both Dawn and other fantastic designers, freely shared both in the Black Cat forum and in the Thyme Graphics Forum.
Help is always there guaranteed!
Thank you Dawn
