    Anyone "Vent" their versacamm ???

    Kind of makes me wonder how safe it is always handling any kind of vinyl since most of the adhesives are solvent based.

    Anyone "Vent" their versacamm ???

    I have really been reluctant to get one at all. I know we really need one but the fumes really get to me. Before I started my shop I worked at a place that had a mimaki, granted it was full solvent, but that machine really screwed my head up..... Holy crap did I have horrible headaches. And I...

    Anyone "Vent" their versacamm ???

    Thats what I was wondering also. The sales people always say oh don't wprry the stuff is so safe you could drink it. But I haven't met one yet that would take a sip of the ink for me lol. Anyways it is still solvent so I think it is bullshit when they say it doesn't need to be vented. Just...

    I Really Need Opinions

    I have to Strongly Agree with this. Above everything I mentioned above as things you will need, I would say that these are the most important. You could find yourself in a world of trouble, if you don't have the proper licensing and Insurance in place. This industry is racked with home based...

    I Really Need Opinions

    WOW With kids that young you are making a huge mistake. HUGE MISTAKE Trust me within a very short amount of time you are going to burn out. This is a very demanding business. It is not as easy as just putting material in a plotter and having it come out. And on the note of your husband starting...

    I Really Need Opinions

    I'll tell you right now with three kids, there is little to no chance of growing a business like this from home. You will have no time for your kids. Also if you have no experience, this is not a business you an just jump into. It is not easy to just make signs. Often people in your position...

    Epson stylus 7800/9800 pro

    I alos have the Epson 10600 Ultrachrome and they are down right lying to you to tell you 5 years. I don't care what media you use on there it will not last that long outdoors. Also even indoors if it is something that people can tough and rub up against you will want to laminate it or the ink...

    Do You Accept Credit Cards?

    That's why I posted that before. I'm glad everyone has had a good experience; I just wanted to pass on what could happen also. And I say this from experience. I had my account frozen because some moron graphic designer that I did a install for said I never put it up. The problem was the client...

    Epson stylus 7800/9800 pro

    I have the 10600. It is a good printer but not meant for outdoors. I use the Ultrachrome Pigment Inks which are supposed to be ok for short term outdoor but unless you laminate it I really wouldn't do it. You said Decals so unless they are for indoors only you might want to look at an...

    Do You Accept Credit Cards?

    For anyone that uses QuickBooks. They offer credit card processing right through QuickBooks. You just right click on the estimate> Receive payments. That’s what we use. It is very convenient. ALSO I would Watch out for Paypal. If you get one customer who wants to be a jerk and complain. They...
