Some of the more streamlined variants of the vinyl cutter plotter can be connected to a computer device. These variations are affordable and useful for schools, clubs, small businesses, churches, and even for use at home. Signs, displays, posters, and wall lettering can be created by typing in verbiage or using images. Instead of paying big bucks to decorate or advertise your venture, lettering and images can be made in house, avoiding the dreaded stencil and spray paint signs that often appear amateurish.
There are also commercial available vinyl cutter plotters too. A few of these machines are quite big and can cut lettering big enough to letter whole walls of big buildings or be applied to enormous billboards. Commercial plotters often cut immediately, and of course accurately, and allow for simple adjustments that enhance spacing. Various typefaces, or letter designs, may not space certain letters correctly, and this can be fixed with a technique called kerning.
