    Search for "USCutter" on ebay. They have a 34" cutter for $279 shipped. I've used there machines in the past when I was first getting started. Only problem I had was after about a year of use was that the start and stop spots wouldn't match up. So it would leave like a millimeter gap that wasn't cut. Not even an issues with big lettering but for something small I would have to go back in with an X-ACTO and connect the cuts by hand. They ebay machines are more then enough to get you going. I eventually upgraded to a roland machine and love it.

    Hope this helps some.

    If you want it to last and to work when you need it most go with Roland or Graphtec. Ive seen them work in the harshest conditions and they work well. The software for the Graphtec is easy to find and also free and the roland software and updates are free as well. I would find a good used one of the two. I have a client that still uses his almost daily and he's had his for about 6 years.
