The small vinyl cutters resemble desktop printers. Computers control the movement of a sharp blade over the surface of material much like printers do with nozzles. It is used for cutting shapes and letters out of thin sheets of self-adhesive plastic (vinyl). Vinyl can then be adhered to a multitude of surfaces depending on the adhesive and type of material.

Vinyl Cutter FAQs
What’s the difference between a vinyl cutter and a vinyl plotter?
All vinyl cutters are plotters, but not all plotters are cutters. Vinyl cutters use knives instead of pens on regular plotters, which is what makes them different from vinyl cutters. In vinyl cutters, the vinyl paper is cut instead of printed, so it is either printed before going through the vinyl cutter or retained as it is before printing.
What is the maximum thickness of material the vinyl cutter can cut?
Although the vinyl cutter’s blade extends to a maximum of 1mm, the thickness of the material shouldn’t be attempted to be cut using this blade. Too dense (i.e. thin metal), too abrasive (sandpaper), and too fibrous (felt) materials may damage the blade, and therefore are not recommended. The vinyl cutter is not capable of cutting foam.
