    Good luck with your $6,000.00 printer when you find it!

    You may want to keep that $75K worth of tools for repairs or parts.

    Should be able to find a used Roland Versacamm around $6k used. It will be a older model but would get you started. Search craigs list as well as ebay and the local classified ads. Deff want to check it out in person before buying though.

    you're gonna have a lot of it - just learn to ignore it. Most of the people will actually try to be constructive. So what is it you planning printing on?
    Size? Outdoor/indoor applications? The answers will narrow your search.

    You can get a refurbished SP-300 or 300V around $5k. These are decent entry-level printers for the beginners. I owned one for over 7 years and never got major issues. It printed great as long as you keep it clean (weekly maintenance). 'Swapped it for a larger one but really miss it.

    I'll sell you a Roland 300sv for $5K. 30" in great condition. Laminator not included.
    I might even drive it down to you...for some beer.
