Product personalisation with a vinyl cutter machine

Thanks to the many advantages offered by a vinyl cutter, you can work with a wide variety of products like the following:

  • Heat transfer vinyl: HTV is used for printing solid-colour designs on garments. Among other items, you may use this material on T-shirts, caps or tote bags.
  • Sign vinyl: It is used to create decorative designs or lettering to place on different surfaces such as walls, doors, glass, cars, and many more.
  • Transfer paper: When preparing this material with a cutting plotter, the objective is to remove the background to keep the paper’s printed parts. This will prevent the garment from shining in areas where nothing is printed.
  • Printable vinyl: With this material, you can cut designs to create products such as tags, stickers, and posters.

OUR SELECTION

You will find different vinyl cutters on our online store, and it’s important for you to know that they are classified into two categories:

  • Desktop vinyl cutters: They are usually used for low-volume productions, start-up businesses or as a hobby for arts and crafts.
  • Professional vinyl cutters: Designed for businesses with medium to high-volume production that need faster, wider cutting and greater precision.

MACHINE MECHANISM

  • Speed: Professional vinyl cutters cut faster than desktop machines. These vinyl cutting machines can reach a speed between 705 mm/s and 1,000 mm/s, depending on the model.
  • Cutting width: Desktop cutters usually have a maximum cutting width of 30 cm, while professional ones start at a minimum width of 60 cm. Using machines with larger cutting widths allows you to work on bigger designs, perfect for example, when working with sign vinyl. You can also batch produce designs of the same project.
  • Maximum media thickness:

-Professional vinyl cutters: They are mainly designed to work with vinyl and paper materials, which is why it offers a maximum media thickness of 0.25 mm.
-Desktop vinyl cutters: These cutters let you cut up to a thickness of 3 mm. Fabric, EVA foam, cardboard, leather, and balsa wood are all common materials used with these machines. Thinner media such as vinyl, cardstock, or paper can also be cut using desktop cutters.

  • Optical reader: This is a key feature for print and cut. Both desktop and professional machines are equipped with it, and its primary function is to cut the design along the contour previously set in the cutter’s software.
  • Precision: When working with small lettering designs with many details or cutting very long designs, a professional vinyl cutter is the best choice, given its accuracy. It avoids bending the designs while cutting them.

WHICH VINYL CUTTER SHOULD I CHOOSE?

To correctly choose the cutter that best fits your production needs, you should consider the characteristics mentioned in the previous point.

We recommend getting a professional vinyl cutter if your production volume is medium or high, if you need cutting speed, if you primarily work with vinyl, or if you batch produce your designs. If, on the other hand, you have a low-volume production and/or work with thicker materials, the desktop vinyl cutter should be the best fit for you.
