ROLAND Stika Desktop Vinyl Cutter

Roland Stika

Signs, displays and labels play an important role in our everyday lives. Whether you need storefront signage, vehicle decals or labels for your store, office, school or home, the Roland Stika range of design cutters enable you to quickly and easily create durable graphics.

The Roland Stika vinyl cutter range has three models: the compact SX-8 which can accommodate 215mmwide (8-7/16”) vinyl; the STIKA SX-12, for 305mm-wide (12”) vinyl; and the versatile STIKA SX-15, which cuts both 305mm- (12”) and 381mm-wide (15”) vinyl more than 2.5 times faster than the SX-8 or SX-12.

Complete Package
The Roland Stika series of vinyl cutters offer the quality, durability and versatility necessary to meet the needs of everyone from the first-time user to the professional. The Stika vinyl cutters come complete with cutting blades and 2D design software.

The Roland Stika vinyl cutters come complete wiith Dr. STIKA PLUS and Roland CutChoice™ software.

Dr. Stika Plus software provides graphic design capability, allowing users to design with text as well as lines. Dr. STIKA lets users create beautifully contoured graphics using TrueType fonts, as well as outline illustrations imported as TWAIN scanned or BMP files. You can enlarge or reduce, mirror, rotate, and make larger graphics by cutting two halves separately.

Roland CutChoice™ software allows users to link in Adobe Illustrator and CorelDraw designs for easy cutting.

Easy to Use

Stika process

With the supplied software and cutter, everything you need to get started is included. Just connect the Roland Stika to your computer like a normal paper printer and away you go! The included software is very easy to use, so easy that home users, students as well as professionals can get started in a very short period of time.

Standard vinyl as well as fluorescent vinyl can be used with the Roland Stika.

Just like a desktop printer, the STIKA includes a Windows driver that allows users to output directly from vector-based design software. It also comes with Dr. STIKA and CutChoice™ software, which allow even first-time users to create attractive, professional-looking signs and graphics.

Education Users
Education users can use the supplied software in their school computer labs on the same site at no additional cost. This capability provides significant cost savings for schools as separate 2D design software is not required. Whether you have 10 computers or 500, so long as you have a Roland Stika machine on-site, you can install the supplied software on all computers at your school.
