I read Sandys manual and watched her videos and followed along and I have to say THANK YOU SANDY it was like you were holding my hand all the way through your manual and videos are awesome. I did my testing with a pen that came with the machine until I was comfortable enough to cut. By Saturday evening with Sandys manual and videos I was up and cutting vinyl. I have to say I am very impressed with this machine I really do love it.

I’m often asked about the differences between the various Klic-N-Kut die cutters and between the software packages we support. So I created a few comparison charts that show important features.

Klic-N-Kut Comparisons (scroll down to find section on Software Comparisons)

The first comparison is for all KNKs currently sold new. If you would like to see additional information, along with available accessories, please use this link.

I also have a table comparing all models, including our discontinued ones. This table is useful for those buying a used KNK or considering an upgrade. Please contact me at with your questions regarding the differences or if you need more information.
