Thank you for this site. I have already learned so much about these products. I will become a regular, I know! I own a wedding invitation business and we are wanting to purchase a cutting machine...computer linked...I have it narrowed down to Wishblade, KNK and Craft ROBO II...and am looking for suggestions...price is only somewhat important. I want the machine that works for us. (it will also come in handy for scrapbooking hehehe)
I need a machine that can work fairly fast, with few glitches and preferably uses photoshop, illustrator or jpeg files. As well I really like the print and cut features but understand that this can be less than reliable.
I thank you in advance for any advice you can pass my way. and if there is already, as I assume there is, a thread about just this could someone point me in that direction.

I suggest you go here and view the comparison chart. It will hlep you to decide what will best suit you needs. Currently I only have experience with the Wishblade and have absolutely loved it. I have a KNK Element on order. One advantage to the KNK Element is that you have more cutting area and of course if you get the bigger KNK, you have lots more cutting area. Basically, it all comes down to what you needs are and I think the comparison form will help you decide which will work best for you!
We are happy to have you join us! This is a great bunch!

Welcome - I agree with Shirley - it all comes down to personal needs... but that chart will help you out greatly!!!

Here is the link for the machine comparison. My fellow designers didn't include it in their posts.
and here is an updated post
My only thought is Wishblade does not have a direct cut from Illustrator.
Craft Robo does. And the KNK studio software will open an illustrator file.
Just things that might interest you.

Oops, sorry that I didnt include the link!
I agree with Chris about the Craft Robo. If you might use Illustrator, the Craft Robo includes the ability to cut directly from Illustrator, which is an awesome way to cut! The software is no longer available with Wishblade.
