    Brother Scan n Cut CM300 or Silhouette Cameo 4

    Hi,

    I'm looking to add a vinyl cutter to my setup now that I am restarting printing after a number of years. I used to have the Litu sc631e and it did what I needed but now looking T the Silhouette Cameo 4 and the Brother Scan n Cut Cm300.

    Please can someone advise which would be the best to go for?

    Thanks

    Both are only entry level and both will limit you to 30cm sheets which ar very wasteful.
    If it were me and on a limited budget I would go for the cheaper one with a view of earning enough to buy a 60cm cutter, either a pro level Graphtec ce7000 or the prosumer/hobbyist level Siser Romeo.

    A lot will be down to your budget and how much you intend to use it. If your budget is limited than maybe go spend more on the heatpress and less on the cutter.
    The Graphtec is professional quality machine that should last you for years of heavy use. If you are only using a cutter for half an hour a day the Siser might fill your needs.

    Another 60cm machine to consider for low volume use would be the Silhouette Cameo Pro 4, which at less than £360 with software upgrade and two year warranty will get you started. Cheap enough to use and abuse until you can afford an upgrade. https://www.mdpsupplies.co.uk/silhouette-cameo-4pro

    Graphtec has some file versatility. There is a plug in for CorelDraw or Illustrator, or you can import .eps files into the Cutting Master software provided.

    Sadly my Graphtec is the CE6000-60 mk1 and has no optical sensor, so is a pia in some regards.
