I have already converted a brother printer to accept sublimation inks, and i have been cutting vinyl for both t shirts and signs using my graphtec cutters for over 5 years or so. I have been doing this along side my full time job printing coins and medals using roland lef and morlock pad printers.
But my question is can i take a normal 24inch inkjet printer ie HP Design Jet T120 and run a ciss with eco solvent inks and run a roll of vinyl through it? I know it will only have CMYK but for me this is enough to get started without having to spend thousands on a dedicated printer.
There was someone doing conversions of one of the Epson models ... various parts have to be replaced to be compatible with solvent inks. Though that route is cheaper than OEM solvent printers, it is still more expensive than a typical Epson desktop.
