Nice one Steve, that's the 1st time I have seen the photo machine used on an actual job! I have shown it in demo's and stuff but nobody seems to use it. Did you cover it in anything like clear vinyl? The only problem with it maybe if the sign is cleaned the corners could pick up.

If you take a picture directly from the top of a transit you are still not gonna get the right size bonnet tho. That would only work for escorts & stuff with flat (ish) bonnets? Spandex & Ingram's stuff are produced by M.R Clipart in Germany (not sure about signmaster), maybe manufacturers a...

You are right there is not very much around. We have tried getting stuff from the states but there is not much there either. 99% of the stuff on these clip art collections with 250,000 images+ is unusable especially when outputing to vinyl. We have asked Beeline if they could produce a cd with trade...

Is this a wind up? where u get Holland from!

Kehlet Reklame are the people that produce it. Mad Dog have the sole rights to sell it in the U.S.A. but it still comes from the same place :smile:

We import Beeline from Denmark, the company we buy them from have all their own artists that draw their stuff. It's not American!

They are also working on some new stuff which hopefully will be around soon.

There was one at Sign UK years ago, sounds like the one you are talking about.

It only seems to work on 12"+ high helvetica tho?

So if you have miles of that to weed it might be half usefull, if you don't it's not!

The 4100-75 is a much better buy than the *plastic* CE-2000 if you can afford the extra grand.

Much better for tracking, it's faster, wider & has lotsa fancy functions.

It is gonna last Mike 10 years after all!

Impreza Turbo issit mate?

I can only go by my own experience, when we used to sell the PC60 our demo model had the head replaced 3 times in as many months. It was only used for the odd demo. Maybe it didn't like travelling very well. We sold around 15 machines. Around half of our customers were happy, the other half not so h...

Graphtecs have got to be the best plotters out there for reliabilty. Graphtecs service is also 2nd to none, are there any other manufacturers left that service their own machines?! I for one would rather they went wrong more often though! 10 years is far too long to be using the same cutter! Oh and ...

It's not an excuse mate. When Ford released the new Transits they released the medium & long wheelbase ones first. When we added them to the cd we were not aware that there even would be a short wheelbase version. The next time we updated the cd the SWB & Jumbo versions were added. These wer...

Ok then... :smile: Sally I am obviously gonna say ours is worth the extra money, here are a few reasons. We have been producing our vehicle cd's for 6 years. During this time we are constantly striving to improve & update them. We provide free upgrades for a year (if you request them!) As I said...

I would have a very very long look at the Roland before buying it mate. I would also get the opinions of a few other people that use it. We have sold a fair few in the past and experienced loads of problems. In my opinion it's great if you are doing small stickers, but not so good for much else. Don...

Hi folks...... As I am the person with the dubious pleasure of producing all of the V2k outlines I would like to add a couple of things. The biggest complaint we had about the old cd was the way in which they were produced, in programs such as Corel Draw it could take half an hour to colour a vehicl...
