Youth Hub - Introduction to Vinyl Cutter & Heat Press

In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn all the basics of using the CNC Vinyl Cutter and the  Heat Press to add your own graphic designs to shirts, blankets, flags, bags and more!

Import vector (outline) designs from graphic software such as CorelDRAW or Adobe Illustrator into FlexiStarter, the software used to control the vinyl cutter. Next, use the CNC vinyl cutter to cut an adhesive vinyl sheet into professional looking signage or ready-to-apply paint masking as well as heat transfer vinyl for heat pressed shirts. This is a great tool for making screens for silkscreen printing, too!
