Default A Cutter for a phrase and logo?

I am looking for a cutter to cut out a phrase as well as a logo in white vinyl. What is a decent cutter for this task. Thanks I read about GCC 24" Expert 24 Vinyl Cutter but it might be too much.

It will cut whatever you send it to cut.

Depending on the material and complexity you can have issues with small items; IE: Small fonts with serifs, etc.

That is true with all cutters but the more expensive cutters will perform better.

In my mind is hard to find "inexpensive" and good in the same machine......While I have an Expert 24 (450.00) and it has made me money, however, it is no where near as good as my Cut-3000 (900.00).....The latter has a servo motor and it quieter and cuts smoother and does a way better job on small letters and details.....But if I want real "good" I would be looking at a Summa with tangential cutting.....

IMHO the Expert series is probably one of the better "inexpensive" cutters.

I plan to use my cutter for such. But if I started to realize decent demand, I'd be using it more as a proofer and get a number of plastisol transfers made up. Weeding will not be fun if you're doing it over and over and over...

I can tell you for $300.00 with software... My Red Sail cutter... Cuts like a dream! I couldn't ask anymore of it... It cuts EVERYTHING... and it cuts great! For $300 I honestl'y don't think I would find a better cutter... I bought it from Signwarehouse.com

I used to have an "expensive" cutter from Signwarehouse $2,500 and then got out of the business and sold it and then really missed my cutter... So I bought this as it was the cheapest thing going at the time and all the reviews were positive for the most part... So I took the chance on the "cheap" cutter and it's been awesome... I actually like it better than my previous "professional" cutter....

I also just bought me a little desktop KNK Zing... I like it too for it's portability.
