I am looking for a cutter primarily for vinyl. Something that has low upkeep (good quality blades and/or cheaper blades)and versatile that won't necessarily break the bank. I want to to decals for my kids rooms, and some small outdoor decals (automotive, hardhats, etc) I've never done any cutting myself but I have seen it done and watched as someone did some of the picture editing to make the images more "cutter friendly".
I am currently looking at either the silhouette cameo or the zing. I'd also rather avoid having to purchase additional software.
Any advice here would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to be a crafty dad and make some cool things for my kids.
