I have the Summa as well as experience with Graphtec and a wide range of others. If you can afford to, go with either the Graphtec or the Summa. You will not be sorry because they are real workhorses. Tangental cutting comes in handy on minute lettering but, my current unit uses tangental emmulation and can cut letters as small as 1/8 inch cleanly.suzieh said:I have a Graphtec 3000. Haven't had time to get it going....but need to VERY SOON.
This Graphtec is tried/true with sign industry, has optical eye. Has "tangential" so helpful for our non-t-shirt stuff.
The Roland (cam24?) doesn't have tangential capability. Also, I think the Roland favors Illustrator. I'm mainly on CorelDraw.
Other cutter at the Graphtec level is Summa. You can read up at signs101.com or signweb.com
If money prevents getting one of these two brands, Ioline provides a really decent unit at a reasonable price.
