The Basics

The vinyl cutter uses a very small, sharp knife to cut through only one layer of a self-adhesive vinyl/protective backing sandwich. It can be used to create artwork for use on the heat press, as stencils for spray painting and etch masks for electro-etching, amongst other things.

It is also possible to swap out the knife for a plotting pen so that it can be used to draw patterns for sewing.

The hackspace keeps a stock of sticker adhesive / sign vinyl which will last well outside in the elements. We also keep a stock of vinyl for making sticking designs onto t-shirts or other textiles, the heat press is useful for this.
