I agree...this is the way to go if printing full color graphics on vinyl. A print and cut sustem can be found on any sign vinyl internet site. You can look at Beacon Graphics or Sign warehouse. There are some inks that last longer than others and for extended life lamination.Vtec44 said:If you rather use a printer, you can invest in a print/cut system like the one from Print Tech Solvent printer. That will print directly onto a sheet of vinyl, then cut around it. If I remember it correctly, the ink itself is rated 3-year outdoor life.
