A blade offset is the distance from the center-line of the diameter of the shank of a vinyl cutter blade to the point of the blade where the cutting is done (see diagram). The vinyl cutter will move the center of the blade to the positions you tell it to however, the blade actually makes its cut a certain distance from the center. The cutter software can compensate for this difference if it knows the blade offset. The blade offset can change depending on the blade manufacturer and the blade angle. This value is entered into the vinyl cutting software.
