Try the Graphtec CE5000-40 Craft Robo Pro with Funtime or ACS Studio.

Being in the UK you might have limited options...

But don't think for a second on this listing...!!

Foison C24 vinyl cutter with assorted Vinyl | eBay

CHEAP!!! If it works this would be a great paired with KNK Studio... www.digitalcuttersplus.com $139 US...

I would just tell you this... For starting out... You don't need to spend a ton of money... Honestly you should be able to get going for under 400 euro at the very most...

Can you spend more money for a fancy cutter... You can... But I would suggest starting out with a basic inexpensive cutter and then as you make money decide if you really need more... I've been cutting templates the last 3 days almost non stop on a cheap chinese cutter I bought for $25.00 US... I've had the really expensive cutters... The really cheap and the middle of the road... I have a middle of the road and cheap of the cheap... Honestly for vinyl and rhinestone templates they all perform the same for me...

I can't stress enough to you though if that cutter linked to above is still available and it works... BUY IT!... It would be all you need... That and I would recommend KNK Studio as that software works great for rhinestone templates... $139.00 US... I'm sure that cutter linked to above has some software with it but it doesn't specifically say...

Another option for you...Budget wise....

REDSAIL OPTICAL CRAFT VINYL CUTTER PLOTTER FREE STAND& SIGNCUT SOFTWARE | eBay

I've had this cutter for years and it works great... When paired with KNK Studio... Do I sell KNK Studio... NO... It may sound like I do but I don't... But KNK Studio is what I use and it's AWESOME for Rhinestone Cutting... I bought mine from www.digitalcuttersplus.com.

To get started either of the cutters I listed here I think would work great for you for a long time and be probably the least you could get started for...

Here are my cutters....

24 Inch
