    Drone video

    Drones are great for the larger projects. My second largest project covered a development. We got approval to fly during a preset time with the local airport that was within 5 miles and got the footage we needed. The client loved the aerial views and selected the areas for placement from...

    Flatbed Printers - Vanguard Print Settings & 2nd Printer Purchase

    We have (3) heads / (1) row on the current flatbed. We have a price to do a field upgrade. But we need to run test to make sure it's just another row of heads and not additional heads based on what the tech has described. The current heads should be fine in terms of matching up a new row of...

    Flatbed Printers - Vanguard Print Settings & 2nd Printer Purchase

    I've not had the time yet to test the printers different pass modes. It list it around 100+ passes in terms of passes on the RIP. I tried a quick 4 pass run as that felt like a better option and it reduced the yard sign size by 1 min per yard sign. But the curing setting was not changed and I...

    10x40 foot banner....what matieral

    We also used the Ackland Media Frames on some Concrete R Type Wall facings. It worked like a charm on a basketball stadium and they were quite large. I'm a big fan of the product and love it when our clients want to use it. The change out is quick and the banners look very good when...

    I don't have any suggestions using a banner only or the media type to hit your goals. But I would suggest to up sell the client on Ackland Media Frames. We just ordered some 4x40's and we will schedule the install shortly. I can send you some pics, if it would help. Our 4x40s frames will be...

    Flatbed Dilemma

    Christian, Did you purchase your unit new? If so, would you purchase it again knowing everything about it up to now? If so, is there any options that you would have changed on it? How many heads and/or rows do you have on your printer? How many 4x8 or 5x10 sheets can you print per hour? How...

    Printing golf balls ...durability

    I researched options for golf ball logos... I was hoping to find a UV printer that could speed up the process and hit full color on the logos. It's more like a shank using UV from my time researching UV printers for golf balls in terms of making them last. We will move to pad printing for...

    I've not used it... Not saying it's not accurate. But when it comes to sales the price will be determined on the qty and the area of the sale. Most every industry type in the world will price review the local competition. I recommend that you look into your area's sales. Most clients are...

    Window perf overlap?

    I forget what the tool is called, but it's cuts the backing paper with ease. We used to pull away the backing paper and then start to work the vinyl. Now we just make a slit on the back of the paper, align it, and then simply remove the backing paper. Overlaps can reduce the overall look of...

    Small Text and Summa Cutter

    We have cut some very small letters on our Summa. It looks like you're cutting to deep for sure. I was very impressed with the ease of weeding the small letters as we had Roland cutters before and I hated cutting small letters as it was a major pain to align them after we try to weed them...
