This is the only decent vinyl cutter capable under $300 capable of cutting 34” wide media. And it comes with a stand included. A single stand of a high-end GCC machine will probably cost more than $400. It is highly unlikely to find a quality cutter less expensive than this one. See More
A stepper motor controls the Z axis of this machine, and its cutting precision is much lower than the cutting precision of a digital servo motor (used in higher end machines). Only machines with a digital servo motor controlled Z Axis can cut ultra thin vinyl films. See More
Additionally to the cutter itself, you will also get multiple rolls of 24” vinyl, two massive rolls of application transfer tape, and a roll of paper application tape. This will be enough for you to ‘play around’ with the cutter and find the appropriate cutting parameters. See More
After the blade depth is initially calibrated, using the Silhouette Studio software, the cutter will automatically adjust it, if needed. This can significantly reduce the machine preparation time and also allows for fast switching between different materials. See More
This vinyl cutter comes with a free copy of Silhouette Studio software. This software is a great tool for taking the first steps in vinyl cutting. Its user interface is clear and simple. The main functions (shape drawing, exporting, and cutting) have their own separate toolbars. It's also very good for experimenting and trying out new cutting parameters. See More
You do not have to be an artist to work with this machine. You can easily buy artwork from the Silhouette design store. The prices are more than affordable: the majority of the shapes are priced between 50 cents and 3 dollars and several free shapes are also available. All the purchased forms are imported to your shape library automatically. See More
