If your plotter is set up correctly within the prod. manager and you are working in vector format you just hit the plot icon. If you are saving the file you save it as a flexisign8.5 or whatever it asks you in the drop down window. A gif is a raster image and not a vector file. Plotters dont cut raster files.

As Motoskin said you need a vector file. I download from your link and it's a Photoshop brush. Not a vector file. Any type of bitmap will need to be recreated as a vector format for you to plot in vinyl.
