The Cameo 3 Vinyl Cutter is currently the single most popular piece of maker equipment available through PVD-Young Makers. Not only is the Cameo 3 smaller and much easier to use than its predecessors, it also costs quite a bit less. A vinyl cutter uses a small knife to precisely cut the outline of your designs into a sheet or piece of vinyl, but not deep enough to release the liner. The blade 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. Depending on the type of vinyl used, the resulting design cut from the vinyl can either be used to make stickers or, using a heat press, applied to fabric or clothing! In addition to the basic vinyl cutting capabilities, the Cameo can also cut other materials such as card-stock & fabric; and, the dual tool ports allow you to run tracing markers for computer controlled drawing/tracing, while the blade is installed. Finally, unlike traditional vinyl cutters that need either rolls or large sheets to pull through the machine, the Cameo uses a 1′ square semi-adhesive sheet as the backing for whatever material is being cut. This allows for a much wider array of materials that can be cut (card stock, fabric, vellum, etc.). In addition, the fact that we can use any material & size, without it having to be as wide as the guide rollers, makes utilizing scrap pieces and reducing waste material a piece of cake!
