    Post Vinyl Cutter

    Hi,
    I am a newbie here but I have been a graphics designer and print practitir for almost a decade. I would just like to ask if any is familiar with using a Vinyl cutter particularly those that can be bought from Hong Kong - ie. Creation P Cut. Our office is expanding into large format stickers and we are currently canvassing and comparing machines.
    We are primarily mac- osx environment.

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Mods, if this is posted in the wrong folder, please change. Thank you for your patience.

    I personally, have the Graphtek FC7000-36....a 4-5 year old cutter/plotter. It is of the Tangential Emulation variety, but very accurate and dependable. More bang for the buck so to speak versus Tangential type cutters.

    i like the cotek brand cutters, they are great they work fine, they are cheap if you campare them to grapthec or roland s (but these s have a sensor so its really great to use), but the cotek s are good and if you use them right it will get you out of any work, and they also come with the software flexisign and its dongle and the artcut software(i hate this software i preffer flexi).

    Graphtec or Roland will do the job.

    Roland is good. Redsail is cheaper but not as good.

    If its going to be your first cutter/plotter, dont go the whole hog and fork out loads of cash for a piece of equipment you may not need. I know some guys who wanted to do this and then decided that they were not interested in cutting vinyl etc and had then wasted around £700+. I started with a cheapo cutter from China that was on fleabay for £120 including SignGo Pro FD. So far I have been very satisfied with it and it does an excellent job. Even though it has an LED that states it can do contour cutting from the software... it cant!.... but it is very easy to set up by eye to do the contour cutting. If you want the details of the cutter and software, feel free to PM me. BTW, I now have a Graphtec CE6000-120E...... I use the cheapo for small signs, car decals and t-shirt vinyl.
