Preparing Printer

  • Turn on the printer (The Switch is located on the bottom left side of the printer where the power plug is located)
  • Lift the lever, it is located behind of the printer on the right and slide in the vinyl paper.
  • You should hear the printer “turn on” when the vinyl is inserted and covering the sensor.
  • Adjust the wheels making sure they are under the white line markers and on each end of the vinyl paper.
  • The wheels can only be moved from the back of the printer, to do so lift lever, then move wheels from behind (sliding motion).
  • Warning moving from the front will damage the wheel
  • Now Lower the lever
  • Hit the Down arrow on the printer
  • The printer will size the paper and take notes.
  • Gently hold the vinyl from the back (NOT from the front) as it is moves backwards and forwards.
  • Use the arrows (up, down, left, right) to individually adjust the “origin” of the needles. ( This allows you to be able too determined a particular spot you want to print)
  • The origin is the bottom-left most point in the image (The origin can be moved for account for tears in the vinyl or cut sections of the vinyl)
  • Lastly don't forget to plug the the cord to the computer. This way when you hit print on the laptop it will inform the printer.


  • Vinyl Paper can be located on a rack located next to the Laser Etching, if you can't find it ask a staff member!
