Hi Matt,
I have one of the larger desktop Rolands (PNC-960)... The Stika in my experience is not really man enough for cutting lots of mask film. You can actually buy a low tack vinyl that is sold as paint mask. Normal vinyl has too good a grab to be used. I have no problem in using Frisket paper, just test until you get the blade pressure right, and it only just scores the backing. For very intricate designs, do the cut in two passes, this lessens the chance of the blade snagging the film (reduce the blade pressure), and watch for worn blades, as they also snag.

Sorry, that should have been Frisket film...
