    Hey everyone!

    Well I'm going to take a huge step (and I'm kinda nervous!)
    I am going to now offer digital inhouse print service! My first step naturally is to purchase a professional quality printer.

    This is the place where all of you seasoned pros come in.....
    which printer is the best suited for
    A) excellent quality prints
    B) Reasonably prices for a start up

    I will eventually be looking into equipment for coating(business cards) cutting , and other equipment and also going Googling for suppliers of materials and such. I think eventually doing screen prints and vinyl later as well for signage and tees. The plotter for that will be much later seeing that most of them are upwards of $1,200.


    Looking forward to the superior mindtrust of this "home base"
    I know you all will have experiences to steer me in the right direction!

    Happy thanksgiving (Late) and Happy Holidays!!!

    My launch date is sometime in January 09 (I hope)

    Chuck, before you start investing you might want to think about attending a tradeshow or two. It is a great way to make contacts with industry people and suppliers, do your own comparisons and save money on equipment all at the same time. Many companies do trade-ins for customers who need to upgrade or offer equipment from repossessions.
