Design and create your own 2D vinyl graphics with our new vinyl cutter.
What can I print on the vinyl cutter?
You can design and cut your own stickers, decals or other adhesive decorations! Personalize your stuff or prototype a logo - the possibilities are endless. Start simple or try something complex and new.
Is there a charge for using the vinyl cutter?
It depends on the size of vinyl that you'll be printing. There are three standard sizes of pressure sensitive sign vinyl rectangles to choose from:
- 6"x6" is $1.00
- 12"x12" is $3.00
- 12"x24" is $5.00
Transfer tape is included. Customers can pay for this material at the main Customer Service desk in our new home at Enterprise Square starting on January 3rd, 2017.
How long does it take to cut something?
It depends on your design – simple designs take seconds, a very intricate design may take just under an hour.
Can I make the sticker myself?
Yes! We can help you load the media and setup the cut, as well as show you how to weed away excess vinyl and prepare the sticker for application elsewhere (your tablet, furniture at home, your skateboard, who knows!). Over time, you might become a pro! We can also help you get started creating your own simple designs with software in the makerspace.
Are there any tips for my first vinyl cut?
If you have a design ready and would like to use the vinyl cutter, contact the makerspace by phone or email and we can reserve a time for you! Note that we might take up to a day to respond by email. Otherwise, simple designs are a lot of fun and a great way to learn how to design for stickers or other adhesive applications.
