Roland GS-24 Vinyl Cutter
The Roland GS-24 Vinyl Cutter is an easy to use, versatile machine capable of quickly producing custom vinyl signs, stencils, logos, or decals. Create a design using Corel Draw, or using any vector art package such as Adobe Illustrator that can be imported into Corel Draw. Bring your own materials, or use Catylator’s stocked vinyl rolls. Customized vinyl designs give your project a finished, polished look.
How to Start
Prepare your design:
Read the first few sections of the Tutorial for instructions on how to prepare your design. Use your home computer or Catylator work shop computers to get your idea sketched out, then use the PC next to the GS-24 to finalize your design and run your cut job.
When you are ready, finish the Tutorial and cut, transfer, and apply your design.
Vector Art files – Corel Draw, Adobe Illustrator, or equivalent.
