Ummm, what's a "radius punch"?  One of the more annoying things about white decals is getting a clean edge on the corners.

This has been a game changer for me (thanks for the gift Leevibe!):

Whoops, didn't notice the message above --- disregard...

Here's a link to the one I got. (Shamed to admit I haven't figured out how to post pics yet, or I'd have done that too... :-\)

Here's a couple pedal enclosures where I cut the graphics on the cricut.  The material is colored adhesive vinyl.  The cricut cuts very precisely.

Just got my own Sunstar Kadomaru corner cutter today.  So excited to (probably) never have to round off a label corner with scissors ever again!  :D
Technical difficulties in abundance.  Please stand by.  ;-)

I did too.  For the price I couldn't pass on it.  Coolest little gizmo I've seen in years.

Itís a great tool. Especially if you print your graphics with bleed lines and cut them out with ruler and exacting knife. It looks totally pro.
