About This Class

Take this class to learn to use the Hacker Lab's vinyl cutter.  This is a basic use and safety class.  You’ll learn all the basics of how to cut graphics out of adhesive vinyl, to use for signs, on posters and other uses.  Basic understanding of vector-based graphics is really helpful.  You can take our "Intro to Design for Laser Cutting" (Rocklin or Sacramento) to get more experience with 2-D graphics design software.

Learn to use the computer-controlled (CNC) vinyl cutter and heat press. Import vector (outline) designs from graphic software such as Inkscape or Corel Draw into the software used to control the vinyl cutter. Next, use the CNC vinyl cutter to cut an adhesive vinyl sheet into professional looking signage.  You'll be amazed at what you can create!
