Plotter vs. Cutter
Graphic Professionals and Sign Makers might refer to a Large Format Vinyl Cutter as a Plotter. Using the same technology as the orginal Pen Plotters were created with, manufactures have replaced the pens with a cutting blade and is now used for contour cutting of shapes and text from a roll of vinyl to produce signage. Large format Graphic Printers can also be referred to as Inkjet Graphic Plotters.
