Now that we have laser cutting, do we also have a bit of leeway with the borders? Meaning, can we move the main images past the blue dotted outlines of the templates?
I want to make small circle chits, but the safe zone (blue outlines) seems too small for my liking. Can I somewhat safely have the image passed that point.
No, you should continue to follow the design recommendations on our site. Variance can still happen with laser cutting, because it's not caused entirely by the cutting process. I would recommend reviewing the information and tutorial videos at http://help.thegamecrafter.com/article/39-templates
