Cutting Plotters (Cricut & Cameo)
DIY equipment and software to design and cut materials—including sticky vinyl, heat transfer vinyl, and cardstock.
The project was made possible in part through a $25,000 grant from the Illinois State Library, thanks to the advocacy of State Representative La Shawn K. Ford.
