The Sillhouette vinyl cutter is a computer-controlled machine where the computer controls the movement of a sharp blade over a vinyl sheet to cut out shapes and letters. For self-adhesive vinyl sheet, the vinyl can then be stuck to a variety of surfaces. A good tutorial on the basics of weeding and application is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjqH0rfTCMM

Generally, nose around YouTube and you can teach yourself the process in a few minutes!
