Well since you offered lol........ I would like to get a small vinyl cutter what is a decent brand with out breaking the bank? I am new to these but I have had to go to the local sign shop to get stuff made for masking up different designs. would be nice to have a small unit here to do some of my own.

Thanks in advance

have a look at the ones by Roland The ones I know of are the Stika models. The gx 24 or the Camm 1 models are very good to but they are up there in the price. Be care of the US Cutters they are made in china and nearly impossible to get parts for.

Thanks looks like they are between 1700.00-3400.00 for the GX-24 also what about a good printer to compliment this plotter?

the gx 24 is an awesome machine. By color printer do you mean one for printing on vinyl. Those are not cheap.
The gx 24 comes with software, plus a plug in that runs and cuts from corel draw or photoshop. But then so do the Stikas.

Just thought I would follow up as to what I ended up buying. For a plotter I got a Graphtec FC7000-130 and for the printer I got an HP L25500 60" latex unit

@Brian Dee can you recommend me a good vinyl cutter?

I'm looking for an electric cutter for some time now and can't make up my mind.

I mean I was looking through the net and read a bunch of reviews and didn't get smarter. It's like those reviews were written by people who have only read about the cutters.

I came across a different blog. The blogger is criticizing the brands. Maybe it's too much for my taste. Anyways I've read this best vinyl cutter review and got me thinking. More like I have a bunch of questions.

Which one would you get? Do I have to spend big bucks for a decent machine?

Any input is highly appreciated
