    Who's got the best deal going for the new Summa DC4?
    Seriously looking at it...anyone know why I shouldn't buy this one?
    I do mainly vehicle graphics, lettering, sports decals, up to 4x8 signs, mostly outside everything. I have owned a D-60 forever and have loved it. I also have a gerber edge and love the capability to print and go with it. So the DC4 looks good to me because I can print larger, output quicker since no need to laminate, and not have to register for cutting contours. Am I on the right track? Now I just need to find the best deal.
    Thanks all

    The only down side to the Summa thermal printers are that Summa is the only supplier for ribbons! Also they have less spot color selection than the Gerber! I have been looking at them also but waiting to see if Zero-nine or Duracoat comes out with foils.
