Vinyl Cutter


Description & Location

The vinyl cutter can be used to cut out vinyl designs that can be used for wall murals or for iron-on vinyl transfer designs that you have created to for a T-Shirt. These vinyl designs can be created using the Cricut Maker stations at our ORL Makerspaces locations.

 Available at Downtown Kelowna Library Branch.

Help & Training

The Vinyl Cutter is similar to, but not the same as, the Cricut Maker. While Cricut certification will provide you with the fundamentals for creating your designs and preparing them for cutting, we will provide you with a brief introduction on how to specifically set up the Vinyl Cutter for your use on your first visit.
