    Vinyl Decal Cutter

    There have been a couple of posts lately of people using the CRICUT cutting machines.
    I have just got a CRICUT Joy (smart cutting machine). It seems like an economical way of making your own vinyl stickers. I picked up a machine for $200 and the vinyl was about $10 for a 13 cm x 120 cm roll. Lots of different vinyl colours available.

    And no, I'm not getting a commission from this!

    The machine connects via bluetooth to a computer or smart phone. It uses a program called Cricut Design Space. I have uploaded my black TJD logo , originally a jpg file. Used a jpg to svg online converter (https://convertio.co/jpg-svg/). Uploaded the svg image to the design space. It was easy to adjust the logo size and number of copies. Ran the Cricut machine. Within a minute I had a (3) gold coloured logos.

    It was quite easy to pick off the unwanted sections of the vinyl. Then used some transfer tape to move the logo onto the headstock. Did not take long at all. Not sure how many coats of tru-oil I will need to cover it (but probably no worse than packing tape)!

    Than also did a white SG sticker to put on the truss rod cover of my AG-2.

    Anyway , I was impressed, so I thought I would share.

    I am trying to negotiate similar use of the brides silhouette machine (like your cricut, but does 300x300 sheets of vinyl)
    no joy so far😢
