New technology? vinyl cutters have been around for a lot of years, but I guess the advent of smaller cutters is fairly resent, but to answer your question a vinyl cutter will allow you to do a lot of different types of work from basic signage to vehicle graphics, teamed with a heat press you can do heat applied vinyl to decorate garments, totes, hats, etc.I have no idea what a vinyl cutter does and why everyone either wants one or already uses one. All I have is old silk screen equipment. What is this new technology?
LOL! yeah, I recently acquired the black shirt for 1000 posts and my old avatar had a white background, just didn't look right on the black shirt.IYF Graphics - I saw a post two days ago that you had changed your avatar. Joined the Family?!
Good idea, not only save a little money on his work shirts but a little extra on the small jobs.Glad to hear it. Anyway - my husband wants to keep the little 1 station, 4 color floor stand t-shirt press (30 year old thing, my guess) to keep printing his work shirts. (He has a small construction crew - fixing old houses and building new ones.) We have a couple of customers who keep coming back for us to print their company tees, as well.
Yeah with the advent of solvent ink vinyl printer/cutters I would guess the vinyl press would be out-dated?We still have the old and sturdy (steel frame) vinyl press and UV ink dryer, which we used for printing bumper stickers. I quit printing the novelty stickers when our customer base (truck stops) dropped to 3. I gave away our last custom print job last fall because I was back in graduate school - just didn't have the time to mess with it.
Should be a market for the tunnel dryer, natural gas fired I'd suppose?We no longer need the 16' tunnel dryer - can use the flash cure unit for the small jobs we do. A few other pieces are related to our original packaging for the novelty tees (L-sealer machine and shrink wrap tunnel).
