Smoothest cuts in vinyl?

I'm thinking about making a dunny bank to hold coins, so it'll need a slot and a plug at the bottom. What's the best way to go about getting smooth cuts? Score it first and then finish with scalpel? Hot knife? Lasers?

Thanks!

Warm it up with a heat gun (or a hair dryer), and use a fresh x-acto blade. It cuts through the vinyl like butter. (So cut slowly)

If your edges are a bit wavy, wait for it to cool, then sand them down with a fine grit sandpaper.

Godspeed!
