    Hi guys

    My cutter requires multiple passes if you want to do a standard cut and then do a flex/perf cut. I'm looking at the new 54" or 64" SummaCut series which will do both a standard cut and a flex cut in the same pass.

    I fabricate for a sign company who is really just a marketing department and sources out their jobs to people like me.

    I was wondering have you used perf or flex cutting to make stickers etc? Is it a feature you could live without?

    Thanks!

    I've been cutting vinyl since 1983 and doing print and cut since 1998. I can honestly say that I have never lost a job because of not being able to provide this kind of finishing. I can also count on the fingers of one hand the times it has been requested.

    Thanks much Fred. That makes my decision a little easier.

    On the other side, it's nice if you have the ability to do that kind of stuff.
    Recently I did a repeated job of oval decal's and this time I used perf cut options to get oval finished product instead of the usual rectangle. The costumer liked it and slightly raised price of the decal was not a problem.

    If you don't mind me asking, what is your current cutter?
