This is one of the hardest decisions to make! Which vinyl cutter should I buy? Most people only hear about the Cricut Explore Air or the Silhouette Cameo and possibly the Brother Scan and Cut. I am going to attempt to list all the different vinyl cutters sold on Amazon. Then you can go and read the reviews for yourself. We also have an awesome facebook group that is happy to help you get started with your new machine! Don’t be nervous! You can do this! You are not alone and I am happy to help you as much as I can… Our group is also great at inspiring creativity with their projects! I encourage you to join us! (I’m really proud of them! They are Kind, Loving, Inspiring, Helpful, Creative and more!)
Ok, let’s get started. We’ve heard enough about the Cricut and Silhouette for a bit. Let’s start off with a machine that I’m hearing lots of good things about. It’s called the US Cutter. I personally recommend if you are just starting out to get the bundle package with any machine you purchase. You will save money by getting the bundle because it will already include tools, mats, etc. (make sure you check to make sure it comes with everything you need to make your first cut) machine, mat, vinyl etc…. I will make a supply checklist of things I used to get started. 🙂 Supply List
