looking for equipment need advice


New Member
What machinery is really necessary for wrapping cars. We are looking at the Roland versacam and the Mimaki jV3 or 5. We will also use these for other applications. Printing large maps etc. We have Adobe Creative Suite in place. What other software would be helpful? Do we need a sign program such as sign wizard? Also, we are having trouble finding car templates. Help please

I have a 63" Mimaki JV3, & also have Adobe's CS2... but I wouldn't want to be without Flexi sign pro. It is a great program for many things, (as Fred told me so often before I checked for myself) but especially valuable now that I have the printer because I would have needed to buy RIP software & Flexi Pro has adequate RIP software included. If you get the Roland, you will probably get RIP software, but I prefer the Mimaki & needed something like Flexi.

Also agree with Fred on the laminator, especially for wraps, it's a must. I got the 63" GBC Arctic Titan
