I mostly use Firefox as a brower....but for some reason it will not play the bn20 speed video, nor will it play the youtube video BUT...I opened Chrome, the google browser...and it worked just fine...and will also work with Safari and MS Explorer...I may have screwed up a setting in Firefox...but could be an issue...

Great article.
Just invested in the Roland Versacamm Printer SP-300i

Quite possibly the best machine we have ever used.
Should blitz the competition.

You need to have a fill of the white spot color for it to work properly. Here is a video from Roland showing how to do it. It also goes over the metallic but the white info is in there as well. Let me know if this helps!

Hello Steve,

Im your fan and I love reading your posts as a novice I learned a lot from your articles. Anyway, this coming weeend Im about to pick up a used VersaCAMM® SP-540i plus 64inch manual laminator for C$10,000 Im just curious if Im getting a good deal in this machine? Im new to this business and wanted to do sign and garment business on the side while maintaining my day job. The machine was few years old and basically used it for car wraps however the guy told me that he was using an aftermarket inks but the machine was very well taking cared off. But Im planning to switch it back to Roland original inks is there any costs involve to flash the aftermarket inks back to original? To start in this business the only thing I have is my skills on how to use Adobe Illustrator although Im my day job is all about databases as Im a Database Administrator by profession.

Anyway, Im planning to start with the following:

1. Custom Shirts
2. Sports Uniform
3. Car Decals and Stickers
4. Banners
5. Window Stickers
6. Magnets

Please give me the best media I can use on each application and I wanted to use just one type ink in all of my application. Your help is very much appreciated.

Regards,

Jake
