Shopping for a vinyl cutter? Do your research

We all know finding the right vinyl cutter is an important — and stressful — decision. There are so many to choose from, all of which offer differences in performance, quality, and reliability.

Everyone who makes or sells a vinyl cutter will work very hard to convince you that theirs, and not anyone else’s, is the right choice. You probably don’t have time to research every option nor really shop around all that much, but the last thing you want to do is make a rash decision that ends up costing you even more down the road.

Rather than make you search the entire internet (it’s a pretty big place that’s easy to get lost in), we’ve put together a Vinyl Cutter Buying Guide that should help guide you through the process.

You will find plenty of great information in it, including what you will want to focus on before making a decision.

For instance, finding a vinyl cutter with the right drive type is very important. There are two different types of motor drive systems — Stepper and Servo — and they each control the movement of the cutting head a bit differently.

The guide also highlights the difference in tracking and with accuracy, as well as downforce (pressure), overcut, material thickness and the all-important speed.

There are other things you will want to consider, with price, of course, being one of them. But when making a purchase like this it is imperative to have as much information as possible, and if nothing else we think our buying guide will answer plenty of your questions.
