    Beautiful output when they're running right but lots of reported problems with stitching and banding. Prints on pretty much any regular vinyl.

    Foil ribbons only cover about 6 square feet before they run out. Limited selection of spot colors. Next to the Fargo, the most expensive way to image on vinyl that I know of. Typical square foot costs to produce are higher than a lot of Mimaki and Roland inkjet shops are selling their prints for.

    Conclusion:

    Very good for small stuff like labels, small decals, hardhat size where cost isn't as large a factor. The larger you go, the more everyone you compete with will be quoting lower than you will be able to go.
