The vinyl cutter (also called a die cutter) is a simple machine that can cut precise shapes out of sticker material, paper, thin plastic, or even fabric. It is entry level and beginner friendly.
Create your design in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Express, Canva or any other design program.
The vinyl cutters are located in the Adobe Studio & Makerspace. There are two vinyl cutters: the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Silhouette Cameo. They are very similar. The Cricut is slightly easier and the Silhouette has a few more custom features. You can choose which vinyl cutter to use.
