Technocopia's computer-controlled (CNC) vinyl cutter can be used to make laptop stickers, car decals, art pieces, and professional signage. It’s also a great tool for making screens for screenprinting t-shirts. In this 1 hour hands-on class, you'll learn how to use Technocopia’s Roland GS-24 vinyl cutter safely and effectively. Participants will learn how to import a design from vector graphic software and send it to the machine. Next, you’ll use the machine to cut an adhesive vinyl sheet into professional looking signage or ready-to-apply paint mask. This class will focus on basic usage of the vinyl cutter machine and only will briefly touch on design techniques.


This tool is available for family use! Any youth between the ages of 12-17 may take this class with a participating adult. Learn more at Technocopia.org!
