Hi, I have done NO research and know No ONE to help with my purchase. I found a Refine 24pro plotter with software the guy is going to download on my lap top by Sign Blazer & Vector Magic. He will copy back up to discs or put on a flash drive... He has had it 2 years, been making signs for 5 years but supposedly dosent use this much... Im going to pay $280 for this. I am wanting to make stickers for my derby teams helmets, iron-on merchandise to sell at our bouts and do custom name stuff for 4-h and derby... Is this a good price, and I getting something that is beginner user friendly??? He dosent have manuals, said I can down load them online. Im supposed to pick it up tomorrow (wed 3/21/12) Can anyone reassure me Im not getting in over my head. Thanks for any help!!!
