Introduction

The Roland GX-24 Vinyl Cutter is an easy to use, versatile machine capable of quickly producing custom vinyl signs, stencils, logos, or decals.  Create a design using Corel Draw, or using any vector art package such as Adobe Illustrator that can be imported into Corel Draw. Choose a color from amongst think[box]'s more than 15 different stocked vinyl rolls.  Customized vinyl designs  give your project a finished, polished look.

Read the first few sections of the Tutorial for instructions on how to prepare your design.  Use your home computer, Nord Lab, Reinberger Lab, or another lab on campus to prepare your design.  There are only a small number of computers at think[box], they are to be used for running machines, not preparing your design.
     
  2. Come to think[box] when your design is complete and you are ready to finish the Tutorial and cut, transfer, and apply your design.
