You might want to get your hands dirty with some tint to make sure it's the right field for you before buying a plotter.

Even with a plotter you will still need to know how to hand cut.

Besides, mobil and plotters don't mix, I doubt there are many mobil guys that use plotters, unless they are cutting the film before they get there. So what happens if you screw up a piece? Back to the shop to cut another.

Just my 2 cents.

having the film cut is one think...now applying it to satisfy your customers is another...its not easy to make a yard look like :krazy ..but very easy to make a tint job look like :lol6 if you dont know what you are doing.

dont think a tinting business is just buying a plotter and slapping some paper up on some glass..its not that easy

This tells me you are off to a bad start none of this stuff will help you you must no how to hand cut first it like being a pilot and flying on auto pilot but not knowing how to take off and land :krazy

Computer cut patterns are already cut for your specific car. THE HARD PART IS DONE FOR YOU!! this came off a computer cut site but the truth is cutting film is the easy part :lol6
