Simple Shape Stringbeans vs Full-Color Stringbeans Cut its
There are 3 great Stringbean bundles that are currently on sale now but which one should you get? Let's take a look at the differences:
1. Stringbeans Simple Shape Bundle $29.00 (reg. $114.00)
2. Full Color Stringbeans GRAPHICS $29.00 (reg. $152.00)
3. Full Color Stringbeans Cut Its (SVG) $36.00 (reg. $152.00)
Bundle 1 and 3 are both Cut Its. This means that they are cutting files. Several formats (SVG, DXF, GSD, EPS, AI) are included in the downloads and they can be used with the cutting softwares and cutting machines. The images in these 2 bundles already have cutting lines so you do not have to trace them with your cutting software(s).
The images in Bundle 1 are Simple Shapes. There is only 1 layer in each of the images. The Simple Shape Stringbean bundle would be great for vinyl decals or heat-transfer vinyl projects.
On the other hand, the designs in the Bundle 3 come with multi-layers. These are what you would use for your paper-layering projects.
The photo above shows the difference between the files in Bundle 1 and Bundle 3. The image on the left is from the Full-Color Stringbean Cut Its (bundle 3) while the vinyl decal on the right was cut out using the Simple Shape Stringbeans (Bundle 1).
The other bundle that is on sale is the Full Color Stringbeans GRAPHICS. These do not have cutting lines and you must trace them in order to cut them out with your cutting machine. Get these if you intend to use them for your digital projects but if you are looking to use the Stringbeans with your cutting machines, I would recommend getting Bundle 1 or 3 instead.
