    Hi Folks.....I am a newbie here on this forum.

    I just purchased a Roland Stika STX-8 12" Vinyl Cutter and don't have a clue how the hell to use it. I own a Lawn Greeting biz and decided to purchase to personalize my signs for my customers and I also want to do some lettering on my car.

    Is there a place where I can take classes? Do they even offer classes on how to use Vinyl Cutters or how to make signs?

    I'd appreciate any help I could get here !!! Thanks and hope to hear some feedback on some help soon.

    Hello OldBess,

    Today is my first day here also. Please educate an old man...
    What is a Lawn Greeting Biz? Also do you know the Famous 5th St. Deli?

    Thanks!

    where did you get the cutter from? Maybe they can help you out. Do you know the difference between raster and vector objects? What software are you using for designing and cutting?

    Welcome from NJ.

    What types of problems are you having? Do you have the right printer cable? What software are you using?

    I started with a Stika 15" many years ago. I used Corel 8 and it worked fine.

    Let us know, thanks.
