Cutting Canvas and Other Media with the Utility Cutter
Canvas, vinyl, and other heavy media can damage the printer’s built-in 
cutter. Make sure you choose the 
Roll Cutter Off
 setting on the printer’s 
control panel before you print. If you’re using the EPSON Stylus Pro 9000, 
you can cut the media with scissors or a utility knife. 
If you have the EPSON Stylus Pro 9500, you can follow these steps to use 
the utility cutter that came with the printer:
1. Press the 
Cut/Eject
 button to feed the canvas or other material out of 
the printer. 
2. Press one of the 
Paper Feed 
buttons to position the canvas on the guide 
track.
3. Place the utility cutter on the guide track, then slide it along the track to 
cut the canvas.
4. After cutting, press the 
Pause
 button to return to ready mode. You may 
need to reload the canvas (or other material) to position it correctly for 
printing.
