This is something I've been thinking about doing for a while now just as a hobby. I'm just wondering what kind of hardware I need and what the process is.
I'd like to be able to make full colour die-cut stickers and also cut vinyl vehicle and window graphics.
I'm already handy with Photoshop and Illustrator so the design side is covered. I already have a good quality Canon printer. Can I use this normal inkjet printer to print onto transparent adhesive vinyl? Then will a vinyl cutter cut them out for me?
Does anyone know the step by step approach to making these things? Any hardware tips for suitable printers or cutters? They seem to range on ebay from very little to mega money.
I'm doing a lot of searching on forums and Youtube and trying to piece it together but surely you can't go wrong asking on STW as a back up
I'm not looking to start a sign writing business or anything. I'm surrounded by people who are into cars and bikes so if I could sell enough to pay for materials I'd be happy. It's just been on my mind for ages and I'd like to scratch the itch!
