The vinyl cutter uses a small knife to precisely cut the outline of a picture into a sheet or piece of vinyl. The knife moves side to side and turns, while the vinyl is moved beneath the knife. The results from the cut process is an image cut into the material. The material is then 'weeded' where the excess parts of the picture are removed. It is possible to remove the positive parts, which would give a negative sticker, or you could weed the negative parts, giving a positive sticker. This printing method then is used to transfer images onto the garment using heat or other printing methods. Cut and Print Technology provides excellent single piece application however in most cases is limited to a selective number of colors.
