Bring your designs to life with a vinyl plotter! This is the perfect tool for simple, single colour designs in small quantities. Vinyl plotters can cut logos, text, or custom shapes out of vinyl using a tiny blade controlled by a computer.
Vinyl is a single colour roll of sticker paper material. It is durable, waterproof, and comes with a removable backing. After cutting, you separate the excess material from the backing, and your design can then be applied onto walls, clothes, cars, and more!
Project: Custom t-shirt and bonus custom car decal
Duration: 3 hours
Prerequisite: None. Though 2D CAD experience, drawing with vector programs like Illustrator or Inkscape is a plus!
