Tips and Tricks: Cutting Vinyl

Cutting vinyl with our electronic cutting machine is simple if you set your blades correctly. Remember you do not want to cut through the bottom white sheet, only “kiss cut” the vinyl to that white sheet.

To successfully cut vinyl adjust your machine to:

  • Craftwell e-Craft – pressure 4
  • Silhouette Cameo® – blade thickness 2
  • Silhouette SD® – blue blad insert
  • Cricut Create®- pressure setting #2 and blade setting 5
  • Cricut Expression®- pressure 3, speed 3 and blade setting 3
  • Craft Robo®- blue blade insert
  • Pazzles Inspiration®- before cutting choose media setting to “vinyl”
Here’s a great resource on that compares different electronic cutting machines.
Please note: We found the information for cutting vinyl using each of the above electronic cutters on each respective manufacturer’s websites. If you have found a different setting works better, please leave a comment.
