    I am sure it has been discussed as great lengths at different times in the past
    I am a medium sized signshop, banners, vehicle graphics/wraps, and other signs on ACM, etc... I have been using a Roland SP for 12 years, and I just got a PPP check, and thinking what better to use my government lottery win on but upgrading to a faster print/cut solution.

    Mutoh Mimaki Roland, all solutions will be considered.

    My main interests are what model I should get. Considerations in the following would be appreciated

    Print quality and speed
    Dry time to laminate
    Scratch resistance when not laminating (banners and such)
    Long run Print/Cut accuracy 8'+
    Durability/Quality of the model
    Ease of maintaining
    Price

    GO!

    TYIA!

    HP Latex Fsat Great print quality and fast dry time Easy to maintain, frequent print head change out Plug N Play and cheap too.
    Roland not fast Excellent print quality medium dry time Easy to maintain, regular cleanings prevent head changes.

    Don't forget about Epson and their S40/S60/S80 range when combined with a Graphtec or Summa.

    imo two separate units work better. Latex for print and whatever for plotting. We currently use an HP360 - cons: pia to change out media, colors are extremely hard to nail especially simple red. A Mimaki for plotting. Want to laminate right away? Latex is the way to go.
