if you plan on dyeing a lot a big one is neccessary. plus you can use it a lot more. the larger ones are meant to do more work and longer. try us cutter. you can get a larger one in your price range.

us cutter has a 24" for $250 I believe. I got the small one for crafting and wish I would have spent the extra $50 to get the larger one.

This is correct sir... My "24' inch plotter can accept material up to 30 inches wide, but only cut 24 inches of it. the extra space is for the head clearance.

I know is this a dead thread, but I need a little bit of help in choosing the right vinyl cutting machine.

I've been reading opinions on forums and amazon reviews and because I will use it mostly to cut vinyl and a little bit of paper the Cameo seems to be the best budget cutter (max $200).
Some people are saying the Brother ScannCut could be a good choice too.
This article compares the 2 machines:

The only big issue I could find about the Cameo is that the software is a bit hard to use and bluetooth is not the best.
Is the Cameo the right machine for a newbie?

I just picked up a Silhouette Cameo 3. They just came out with a 4 so you can find the 3 for cheaper now. I found mine on wall world for $150 looks like it's back up to $200 now. I have used a Cricut and it was fine, but I didn't need all the other stuff it did. The Cameo is supposed to cut directly from a roll w/o the cutting mat but it doesn't do as much other stuff.

The major difference between the Cricut and the Silhoutte is that the Cricut uses pregenerated images and files to buy from the manufacturer.

If you want to export and use the Illustrator for cutting, silhouette is the one you want.

You can cut with them paper, vinyl and fabric. You can use special pen inserts instead of blades to draw with them too.
