A local sign shop is closing up and selling off some supplies.
What is a good price for a copy of Flexi 7.0?
He wants me to make him an offer, I don't want to insult him but would like to get it as reasonable as possible.
Yes it is a Legal copy.
Depending on the version, it may be worth a lot more than $1000. The full FlexiSIGN Pro edition (including large format RIP) lists for over $4000. FlexiExpert lists for a little over half that price. $1000 is going to get you a more basic setup (if something is available in the version 7.x offerings).
If it is Flexi Pro it's worth anywhere from $1500 to $2500. You will likely be looking at a fee from Scanvec-Amiable to put the software in your name which will entitle you to some benefits. Version 7 can be upgraded to the current version 7.6v2 at no charge.
I bought the full version new for $1200 as a crossgrade price since I owned CasMate.
I figure helping someone bail out of a second hand copy should make it reasonable to make an offer of less then someone else could buy it new. Maybe the guy won't go for it, but based on my experience, I don't thin an offer of $1000 would be an insult by any means.
I don't disagree Doug. I was just responding what I feel the software is worth on the open market. I would be surprised if it brought less than $1500 if it was put up on eBay with an adequate description.
In a one on one, "I have it ... what will you offer" kind of market, the situation is considerably different. Smaller markets usually mean buyer's markets and lower prices. But then the guy is saving the trouble and expense of advertising to reach a larger market.
Flexi comes in a number of flavors at different prices. They're all upgradeable but at fairly substantial cost since they're not based on used prices.
If it's FlexiSign and not FlexiLetter or other downgraded versions, it's a great product which only lacks digital printing capability. If you're wanting to use it for print, I would check closely as to what your costs to reregister his copy and what the upgrade will cost.
