    Got a used Envisions 375 and Edge II. Need to relplace the 45 degree blade in the plotter and order a roll of Oracal printable for the Edge. What blade do I order and what is everyone printing on for general printing. I use 3651G for my SP540V and would like to stick with Oracal.
    Thanks Folks

    You can use any standard vinyl in the Edge. I use Gerber(3M) and Arlon, both cast and calendered.
    I have local suppliers for the blades
    so I don't know where you can buy them in your area, but plenty of suppliers sell online.

    I use 651 for short term; 751 and Gerber 220 when I need cast.

    I get Gerber Blades from Hyatt's.
    I did get the clean cut blades, and they are great, but too short for my 4B. I have to kind of Jerry-rig them into the cutter head.
    I can also get them from Gerber or Super Sharp (not that great) from Pioneer Supply Co. in Pittsburgh.
    Love....Jill

    The blade you need for the enVision plotter for normal 2-4 mil vinyl is the 45 degree blade. Comes in a pack of 2 - Part # P63679B.

    The equivalent Oracal vinyl to use for the Gerber Edge II is 651. It comes in 15" punched format.
