    Helloooo There, I just started a new company to compete and beat the big boys known as FATHEAD! We bought (2) Epsons 9800 and Roland GX-400 die cutter and a way we go. Oh the cool thing is. I own the sole rights to the removable material. Any ideas how to get this baby up and running

    Another welcome from PA.
    You may want to become a merchant member if you are going to be selling things here or offering a service.

    welcome and best of luck - you may want to take a look at the word art graphic on your site Your The Star - I believe that should be You're The Star

    Are you planning on selling the material or distributing it in any way?

    Is there way to take a image with backround and have it vector the image out, without doing it by hand drawing?

    Do people actually buy those kid shots on that material?

    Also you show there is one type of material available... what is DI?

    It is not good for ecosol machines?

    How much will the 54" roll cost?

    Merchant membership ain't a bad idea if you are going to sell to people in the "biz" Having done business with several people on the board - both buying and selling - I can tell you it is worth every bit of the cost of a merchant membership.
    As far as what people use this board for??? It ranges, looking for answers, venting about customers, finding distributors or just sounding off on all things sign-related and beyond (sometimes WAAAYYY beyond!)
    Welcome to the board though, and put on your seatbelt... sometimes its a bumpy ride!!!

    I'm trying not to be rude.... but why can't other people on here do the same thing? It's just a simple print and cut, only on cheapo paper material. I can buy epson adhesive backed paper, even coated, print and cut on that and WHAM, I'm in the business too.

    I guess I look at this like the stork sign business........................ why?

    I tried to do that sort of thing with magnetic signs a little over a year ago. A lot of poeple said they wanted them but when it came to buying them... I hope you do better than I did!

    I was unaware that this was something new. Fellers sells some material called Jarhead. I've been doing these for awhile now. Maybe I'm missing something. Not trying to be rude....I don't guess I understand the WOW factor here.
