Wal Mart Plotter

I've seen these things at WalMart a couple times now. I've been buying the vinyl sheets that go into these machines and it works flawlessly.

Anyone every tried one? I've not done a lot of research on plotters, but I'm looking for a smaller, inexpensive one. I don't want a big thing taking up a corner of my home office.

As far as I know, with a Cricut you can only cut the preselected stuff that's on the cartridges.

There is software out there that you can buy to be able to use your own images, but for the price of all that you can get a uscutter. The 12" mh-365 is on sale for 220 and comes with cutting software

Here's what I use. And as a plus, it doesn't look gay

If you have a Cricut then you can use this program to cut your own custom graphics. You are no longer limited to the Cricut cartridges. I have used the program and it is easy to use. I have never used a Cricut for vinyl work.
Having said that, I would recommend the style plotter that DGDave mentioned.
