  1. Lamination Issues!

    First of all...you have a laminator which really only works "okay" with a sled. Sleds are best made using sintra board. Secondly...I notice you're using laminate of the max width of the Daige. This "might" never work....these Daige units need plenty of "free space" on each end. When...
  2. Relational Database Software

    There in-lies the problem...we're treating a particular style as one item with different sizes. If we had to assign each size, in most cases small through 4XL (7 sizes) a totally different item number with the same description, our invoices would be 5 pages long on orders containing say 10...
  3. Relational Database Software

    Looking for a preconfigured database structure, hopefully for FileMaker Pro that keeps track of inventory sold, primarily t-shirts where we can enter for example (40-M, 80-L, 50-XL, 30-XXL - Style #300) just printed into inventory and as this particular style is being sold, the relational...

    Be careful what you wish for.....I think you know the rest. Welcome!
  5. Help with Laminator Ding-Tec BU-1600C IIZ 60”

    If you can use a giant sled made of Sintra that would be the ticket HOWEVER seeing that using a sled of this size could be a problem...first thing to check is that your tension is absolutely even from end to end. Cut 4 strips of paper about an inch wide and 12" long...place one at each end and...
  6. Leasing?

    IMO...try to avoid leasing if at all possible. They'll kill you on the rate unless your credit is A1+. Plus, equipment such as wide-format inkjets sometimes don't qualify for the best rates since their considered a riskier lease due to a very accelerated rate of depreciation when compared to...
  7. Advise Please .....

    Seeing that you're in the t-shirt business, and if your shirt business is really doing well, a small digital vinyl print expansion might be good idea. I added a somewhat substantial setup here and am doing "okay" with it although if I didn't have an established customer base of screen printing...
  8. Blade offset?

    Look in your manual for correcting misalignment for both print/cut and crop/cut....you can enter plus or minus numbers for FEED and SCAN settings and save these as a preset value. Pretty sure it works the same with a versacamm and an xc-540. Its quite an easy adjustment. If the versacamm...
  9. Daige 4 Laminator Question

    Thanks guys...always excellent opinion and help here. Steve
  10. Daige 4 Laminator Question

    Maybe I shouldn't speak too quickly about okay results....only have 30" in there now....as Rick mentioned above, I wonder what tidings of great joy 54" will bring. LOL!
  11. Daige 4 Laminator Question

    I like that short piece idea...putting maybe a 3" piece of paper behind the substrate on the sled.....then cut off the substrate and leave the waste piece. I'll try that. Although I think this Daige is a 2 person gig for the most part. Although very inexpensive, I must say the pieces I ran...
  12. Daige 4 Laminator Question

    Okay...was going to blow a wad on a great laminator but for the little use I have for it, decided to try a 55" Daige 4 and just set it up today. My question is this: After running the starter board through to thread the rollers, cut off the laminate behind the rollers and pull the material...
  13. Using Reverse Wound On A Seal 62 Ultra

    Thanks....I thought it wouldn't be an issue but wanted to hear from someone with a Seal. One would think the tech at the company itself could answer this question.
  14. Using Reverse Wound On A Seal 62 Ultra

    Buying a Seal 62 Ultra laminator and was wondering if there's any issues using reverse wound laminate on this unit such as Oracal? The company itself could not give me a straight answer.
  15. Prism Jet V Speed? I Don't Believe The Claims.

    Then, Signwarehouse is misrepresenting the speed/quality. Since the samples sent were on glossy media along with the claim of printing that particular file on that media at that speed....(140 sfph) 70 or so sfph sounds more realistic. Probably a good printer for me to look at as a second...
  16. Prism Jet V Speed? I Don't Believe The Claims.

    Yep....that's a problem. A 54" machine would have been selling like crazy. These printers "look" a bit cheezy though...kind of like a giant plastic desktop inkjet in appearance. They should give these a more modern, professional looking design. Just a thought. Mmmmmm....140 sfph at 720x720. If...
  17. Prism Jet V Speed? I Don't Believe The Claims.

    So....I write a post here that I'd like to see some samples from this machine. Believe it or not....the next day, via overnight letter samples show up from Signwarehouse. Whew....those boys are trolling these boards! Anyhow...I must say the output looks great for a cmyk only printer. I was...
  18. a couple of printing/laminating questions

    The inks used in these printers are transparent except the black. So your image will still be reflective unless of course any large black areas. Lamination will not affect the reflective characteristics of the film. Run all the heat on your Versacamm at maximum when printing reflective...
  19. Photoshop question

    The absolute best grayscale image can only be attained by converting your RGB image to LAB Mode then duplicate the Lightness Channel and use this channel as your gray. At this point you can then revert back to RGB and simply isolate the stop sign. The Lightness Channel is "pure" grayscale...
  20. Just bought the new ValueJet

    I'd be very interested in seeing how good the output is on realistic images in the 140 sf per hour setting. Samples from manufacturers can't be trusted though! LOL! I bet image quality isn't "great" unless its run in the 4 pass mode which is 70 sf per hour. Gotta admit though...for less...
