Help Choosing the right cutter

2 posts in this topic

Hey guys New to the forum so I guess I will introduce myself! The name is Kasey I live in Ontario, Canada about 4 hours north of Toronto. I am a current small business owner and I run my business out of my house. Right now I specialise in custom signage and woodworking with the help of my CNC machine. Unfortunately I live in a small town and business hasn't been supper great due to all of my products ranging from 70$ and up! I've been working on expanding for a while now and have always wanted to get into vinyl cutting to make some signs for vehicles and vinyl decals. I've been doing quite a bit of research and am still unsure as to what route to go. Hoping you guys could help me get pointed in the right direction. my budget is 1000$-2500$.

My original research brought me to the roland gs-24, all of my research says that roland is a top brand and has some very good products.  So I guess my question is, should I go with this machine or should I look into something else? At 2450$ it is pretty expensive and is only 24" Do you guys know if 24" is very limiting? Should I be looking at 52" cutters at the same price range? I've spent a month or two now working on a very nice e-commerce site and I plan on doing fairly well with the vinyl cutting.  Just looking for suggestions and recommendations. I know there is allot of information out there but sometimes it's best to get a personalized answer that is geared to my situation.

Thanks guys!

not sure on where you was doing the research but in most forums the majority of the old timers have gone to the graphtecs - the ce6000-60 fits in your budget and is a very very solid performer.  that is what I use for my business and have had several roland and graphtecs - going back to the graphtec every time.   for me I had a 50" machine but it is difficult to weed that wide material, very hard to mask that wide without wrinkles and very hard to apply them.  I figured out that almost all of the designs I do even for 8-10 ft signs can be broken down into elements that can be done on the 24" wide machine and they are easier to handle, weed and mask.

Welcome aboard
