Ideal for smaller design projects CHPL's cutting machines can cut a variety of materials including vinyl and cardstock. Design your own shapes, or use pre-designed ones. Cut out vinyl decals, customize apparel, or make stickers.

Visit the Downtown Main Library to use a Cricut Maker 3 and the Loveland and St. Bernard Branches to use a Silhouette Cameo Machine.


  • Images can be imported in other formats (JPG, BMP, PNG, TIFF, and GIF), traced over with the system’s designer studio software, and then cut.
  • The machine can cut: paper, cardstock, adhesive cardstock, adhesive vinyl, fabric, heat-transfer material (e.g., designs that you could iron on cloth), printable heat-transfer material, rhinestone templates, temporary tattoo paper, vellum, and magnetic paper.
  • The machine can cut materials sized as large as 12 inches by 12 inches.
  • This machine cannot print on any materials.

What You'll Need

You’ll need to bring a design in a common image format to be converted. You may also choose a ready-made design from the software’s library. The Library sells adhesive vinyl. If you would like to use a different material, you may bring that.


Vinyl: $1 per square foot (limited color options are available for purchase, call the Downtown Main Library at 513-369-6900, the Loveland Branch at 513-369-4476, or the St. Bernard Branch at 513-369-4462 to confirm.)
