Tips and info on getting started!
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:23:24 AM »
Hey guys New to the forum so I guess I will introduce myself! The name is Kasey I live in Ontario, Canada about 4 hours north of Toronto. I am a current small business owner and I run my business out of my house. Right now I specialise in custom signage and woodworking with the help of my CNC machine. Unfortunately I live in a small town and business hasn't been supper great due to all of my products ranging from 70$ and up! I've been working on expanding for a while now and have always wanted to get into vinyl cutting to make some signs for vehicles and vinyl decals. I've been doing quite a bit of research and am still unsure as to what route to go. Hoping you guys could help me get pointed in the right direction. my budget is 1000$-2500$.

My original research brought me to the roland gs-24, all of my research says that roland is a top brand and has some very good products.  So I guess my question is, should I go with this machine or should I look into something else? At 2450$ it is pretty expensive and is only 24" Do you guys know if 24" is very limiting? Should I be looking at 52" cutters at the same price range? I've spent a month or two now working on a very nice e-commerce site and I plan on doing fairly well with the vinyl cutting.  Just looking for suggestions and recommendations. I know there is allot of information out there but sometimes it's best to get a personalized answer that is geared to my situation.

Thanks guys!

Hey bud. I did the same research as your are doing and i did it hard lol....    .  Check out uscutter website.   http://www.uscutter.com/TITAN-2-Vinyl-Cutter-28-53-68-inch    .I bought a titan2 24'' ( Known as the 28")  and i have made amazing money on it..Its cuts are precise and accurate. I will send you a link to my website so you can see what ive done with it. No complaints as at all. .I know roland and graphtec etc is the top of the line cutters but titan 2 are very very close . It is not a low end cutter,It will do you good.I ve had mine for 2 1/2 years now and i just changed my first blade out.   Anyway if you have any questions drop me a message .   I have done 40"x40" designs all the way up to a 4'x8' doubled sided sign with my cutter..You just have no know how to do things... The titan2 is way cheaper as well but performs the same as the spendy ones...  Dwayne  and check your messages.
