Default Start a glass etching or vinyl sign making business.

We've always wanted a cutter/plotter to make our own custom glass etching stencils and signs for our cars, but I over did it. Feel free to click on this link to see how much this machine usually sells for.
http://www.desaypc.com/phcutter.html

I did an oops over the Christmas holidays, and both my husband and I bought a plotter while prices were low. We've only opened and set up one of them, so the other one is still for sale. So if anyone wants a cheap cutter/plotter, this might work out for you. (The manual is poorly written, but I've included some notes to clarify things.)

32" Master 380 Cutter/Plotter, never opened, with flexi-starter and a seperate vectorising software package. $800.00 with free US shipping or deliverey within 300 miles of Duluth, MN. Or pick it up for $700.00. Comes in 2 heavy boxes, so it's UPS or pickup only. We're in Duluth, MN. 55810 If you are within 300 miles of me and you want it delivered, I can also assemble it for another $50.00. After all, I just assembled the other one a month or so ago, so I can do it quickly. The manual is vague and printed back to front, so you may want to have me do it.



If you wanted a full shop, the other package deal is as follows.
$1,500.00 with free US shipping or delivery within 300 miles of Duluth,MN. Or $1,400.00 picked up. If you are within 300 miles of me and you want it delivered, I can also assemble it for another $50.00.
This package deal includes:

1- Master XY-380 32" (800 mm) Cutter/plotter http://www.desaypc.com/phcutter.html

1- FlexiStarter Plotter Software by Scanvec Amiable http://www.graphicdiscount.co.uk/acatalog/Flexi.html
1- Vehicle oulines 2005 Software (A CD with vehicle outlines on it, so you can scale your graphics to a car or van.) Original, not a copy.
1- Vector Clipart & common sayings - 2 CD set Original, not a copy.
1- Inktopia vectorization program on CD. (Turns pictures into cuttable .eps formats.) The flexi-starter that comes with many machines doesn't do this.

1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of black vinyl
1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of green vinyl
1- 21 inch by 20 yards roll of blue vinyl
1- 30 inch by 20 yards roll of dark red vinyl
1- 30 inch by 20 yards roll of purple vinyl
1- 30 inch by 20 yards roll of transparent blue vinyl
1- 12 inch by 10 yards roll of chrome vinyl.
10- 15 inch by 10 foot rolls of vinyl one small roll of each of these colors - Silver, Gold, Black, White, Magenta Pink, Lime Green, Intense Blue, Red, Bright Yellow, and Orange

1- pdf version and printed document on basic vinyl application.
1- Squeegee for installing the vinyl letters, see the above document for how to use it.
1- Bottle of RapidTac application fluid.
1- 12 inch by 50 yards roll of transfer tape.

If there is just one or two colors you need, or just the smaller width vinyl, or you don't want the clipart, let me know and we can talk the price down. Let me know what city/country to ship it to, and I'll give you an international shipping estimate. I'd only accept PayPal for shipped orders, and it wouldn't ship 'til after payment is made.

Money orders or cash would be fine with pickup or delivery.

Default Re: Start a glass etching or vinyl sign making business.

Have been looking recently for a machine to do the vinlyl lettering and don't know exactly what we would need any info or insight into this would be greatly appreciated, I use to live up in Chisholm, and am now down in New Richland MN, we are in the middle of race car alley, and have wanted to get into doing the numbers and names for local racers, and also my husband's car. So was wondering if you still had your machine and if it would be one that I could do those types of lettering projects. Thanks

I still have the extra cutter, but the vinyl package has changed. I had some big projects in purple and blue, so almost everything now is 24 inch, and I've bought more rolls of other colors. This is a list of what's currently in the offer:

This sale includes:
1- Master XY-380 32" (800 mm) Cutter/plotter http://www.desaypc.com/phcutter.html

1- FlexiStarter Plotter Software by Scanvec Amiable http://www.graphicdiscount.co.uk/acatalog/Flexi.html
1- Vehicle oulines 2005 Software (A DVD with vehicle outlines on it, so you can scale your graphics to a car or van.)
1- Vector Clipart & common sayings - 2 CD set
1- Inktopia vectorization software CD (Flexi-starter doesn't have the ability to trace a vector path on anything other than text, so this way you can vector out clipart and photos. This CD also has over 8,000 free clipart objects, many already vectorized, and several free trial versions of software that you may like to experiment with.

1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of black vinyl
1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of green vinyl
1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of red vinyl
1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of yellow vinyl
1- 21 inch by 20 yards roll of blue vinyl
1- 24 inch by 20 yards roll of dark red vinyl
1- 12 inch by maybe 10 yards of chrome silver holographic diamond plate.

1- Squeegee for installing the vinyl letters, see the attached document for how to use it.
1- 12 inch by 50 yards roll of transfer tape.
1- quart bottle of rapidtac solution.

A pdf guide to vinyl igraphics nstallation, a list of links for suppliers and manufacturers who offer free samples, and a list of tips and tricks on setting up and using this particular cutter. I made a few mistakes, including one that meant I had to replace the knife and cutting strip. Oh, well, no damage was done exept that I lost some time and money. The manual may be english, but it's a pretty awful translation, and it's written back to front.
