If you wish to cut your design to a specific shape a cutline must be supplied with the print file. We can show you how to set this up correctly in the design software available in our computer lab.


The cost of each vinyl print (including ink) is:

  • Sticker vinyl - $15 per metre
  • Heat transfer vinyl (for heat pressing onto fabric) - $35 per metre
  • Wall decal vinyl - $25 per metre
