Vinyl Cutting

The vinyl cutter uses a computer-controlled knife to cut designs into thin vinyl films. The machine is driven by vector (line) data created in software programs such as Adobe Illustrator. After removing excess material in a manual process called weeding, adhesive graphics can be applied to smooth surfaces, and heat transfer graphics can be applied with a heat press to fabrics.
