If you are going into the signage business, you might consider buying a vinyl cutter to create your signs, decals, t-shirts or any type of banners you wish to produce. Vinyl cutters are tools used to precisely trim vinyl, fabrics, foils, and plastics so they can be used to cut patterns for use with signs and banners.
This is seen as an alternative to printing the designs with ink and can be quite effective, but also very expensive depending on the size and type of vinyl cutter you choose. Nowadays, a fully automated digital sheet label cutter allows cutting a large variety of materials.

When you are looking to purchase a vinyl cutter, you really don't want to get a machine that is bigger than you need because it will create wasted materials in the form of overlaps and scraps that are otherwise worthless.
Smaller machines can be used for personal projects and banners, but larger machines are designed for commercial signage and if you intend to go into business, you might want to consider one of those. Vinyl and other materials typically come in 15-inch rolls, so it is best to choose a machine that cuts your projects at least that large to avoid waste.
There are also cutters that come with different purposes. For instance, if you intend to simply cut vinyl, a less powerful machine will do the trick, but cutting thick plastic and foil may require a heavy-duty model.
The more expensive the machine, the better control the user typically has over thickness, pressure, and location which creates a precise and clean cut that makes a professional impact and can be used with plenty of different materials.
