Then I found out about the Silhouette Cameo. You buy graphics and fonts individually. It does paper, but it also does vinyl, fabric, and sketching. While I won't use it a lot, I do see where having it will make things easier. Potentially, I'll be doing stuff for the school, even after I've gone.
My current boss liked the idea of me making vinyl for their walls. In purple. Meanwhile, I see creating a Tardis cling for the back of my car.
It'll be interesting to see what I can create...
