GOOD CUTTING MAT, HOLDER FOR THE APPLICATION TAPE , LIGHT TABLE ( ANY 2 COLOR PLUS WORK ALSO HELPS IN WEEDING ) good straight edges for cutting square,

as for weeding I just us a x-acto with a #11 blade and a really good pair of tweezers,

what software are you getting with the plotter ????

any questions just ask

You can go into the dental section of a store and get the pack of 2 picks, which also come with the little round mirror. I throw the mirror away...lol. I use the two picks for weeding. The bigger one for regular to large weeding, but the small ended one for the fine weeding. I've used the #11 blades before and my husband always does, but for me the picks do better and faster. It also prevents me from slipping and cutting a letter by accident while weeding.
