Vinyl settings [EDIT: Not recommended!]

My wife wants to make vinyl stickers on the Glowforge, but understands that it is not safe to cut. I just ordered some of this PVC-free laser-safe vinyl (linked below) to test out. I have no idea if it’ll work, but figured it would be worth a try. Wish me luck!


@lampert did you ever test out this alternative from EcoFriendlyCrafts? I was thinking of getting some myself, and am wondering how your experience was with it. Do you have GF setting recommendations for it? Thanks!

just a note about PVC free vinyl

Is there PVC free vinyl?
Are they Glowforge Friendly, I am sure others will chime in! :slight_smile:

Alternative materials to phthalated vinyl include: virgin PET; PET from recycled plastic bottles; polyolefin and polypropylene materials; acrylic polymers; ethylene- vinyl acetate; and polyurethane made from soy-based resins. Each of these PVC - free thermoplastics creates its own set of performance circumstances.
