can anyone tell me if the mimaki plotters are good or bad?

We are considering buying the Mimaki JV3 digital printer. It is sold in a bundle with a 62 inch plotter (necessary for contour cutting). We are hoping to depend on this plotter as our vinyl workhorse in addition to contour cutting digital prints. I've never worked with a Mimaki plotter before. I wel...

Howdy! Backing up what Joe said about protecting the gold... During my first experience with gold leaf (raised letters on an outdoor sign sandblasted from sign foam), the supply house that I bought the gold from suggested that I apply a clear. I observed that on my test piece, the clear dulled the b...

Hi Rebecca - I've had a few postings here lately trying to find information on the Summa DC3. I had lots of good input. I do 2 different things. I work full time for a municipality doing road signs, vehicle graphics and banners. Also, I own a company on the side that focuses on vehicle graphics (vin...

What else?!

Great info, guys! Keep feeding my head!

We've talked about the Summa DC3, the Nautilus and the Gerber. Who else makes thermal transfer?

Great input. Dave... thanks. Are you familiar with the Nautilus? It is similarly priced. Claims to have inexpensive ribbons, takes media from 5.5 inches to 39 inches, is a print/ cut, and can have media reinserted. If this machine has any kind of a reputaion and has positive feedback, it would seem ...

I've never heard of Victory - who are they and what are they all about?

Hey guys - thanks for the input. This is exactly the type of advice I need. Keep it coming! My research also has me curious about the Nautilus however I have the same support and reliability questions. Anybody out there seen one? As far as your prints being good for three years, Summa claims five. I...

Thanks for the input and advice! Our budget is in the area of $20,000. The DC3 is priced right there and seems to have all the right answers except for being limited on types of media and the inability to use narrower rolls. Are there other thermal transfer machines in this price range that solve th...

New member needs help!

I thought I would try a new subject heading - my first posting yielded little input (see Summa DC3 posted 1-27-04). Hedge Graphics wants to enter the digital field. I need input on how to compare similarly priced printers. Also so far, my research has produced few models of thermal transfer printers...

According to sales reps, with the DC3, you could not reinsert the media for cutting once it was removed (for laminating for instance). Supposedly the DC3 plus allows this. I'm looking for other thermal transfer options - I'm just not familiar with what is available in this price range ($20,000). I l...

Summa DC3 Plus

One addition to the DC3 in the Plus model that has my attention is the ability to reload the media for contour cutting after it has been removed for lamination. I'v read the posts on the DC3 on this site, but none seem to be too recent. Has anybody taken the plunge with the Plus? Can anybody help wi...
