This is a vinyl cutter made for those who want to start a small domestic factory. Meaning that, if you want to start a large volume production, but have enough space for only one machine, this is the right option. Provided with the correct attachments, the GCC Jaguar can cut twice as fast as some of its competitors.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Excellent for large productions runs
This machine features the highest maximum cutting speed among professional vinyl cutters. It can cut at the speed of 60 inches per second. This is almost twice the speed competitors (Graphtec, Roland, or USCutter) can offer. Due to its very fast cutting speed, this machine is perfectly suitable for large volume production runs.
Pro Can handle any vinyl
Due to the high precision blade control mechanism and 5.9 N of maximum downforce, this machine can cut any 24" sheet vinyl available on the market.
Pro Simple workflow
The software this cutter comes with can import design files from Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw. After you have the design file, simply import it to GreatCut 3 and set the simple cut parameters. The machine will take care of the rest of the work.
Pro No need to purchase software separately
This machine comes with a free copy of GreatCut 3 software.
This is one of the most expensive 24” vinyl cutters available, being priced at $2090. On top of that, your expenses will not stop there as the machine, by default, comes without a stand. The problem is that this 60 inches/s machine is useless without it (as you will not be able to cut long vinyl rolls). Getting the stand will add another $400 to your expenses.
Con Requires CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator software
The GreatCut 3 is only capable of receiving design files from either Adobe Illustrator or CorelDraw. There are two main reasons why this may be problematic. First, both of the programs are quite expensive. Second, the transition to either of those programs can be time-consuming if you already have a massive design library in any other design software.
