    I'd appreciate any experienced thoughts about this.

    I currently have a Mimaki JV33-160 and a Mimaki CG-130fx II.

    The thing is that as of a year ago I've completely stopped anything that has to do with local market, and I make stuff to sell online. I sell on eBay and Etsy and my business is now constantly growing. The problem is that I don't need these huge machines anymore, and it would be a huge time saver if I could print and cut in 1 machine. Plus I would be able to fit it in my studio, instead of having to print in my home's basement.

    My machines are 4 years old, but I haven't used them much.

    I talked to the representatives of Mimaki and Roland in my country and asked them if I could give them my machines for a smaller print/cut machine.

    Mimaki says they can take both my machines and give me a new CJV30-60. He wouldn't tell me how much the new CJV30-60 costs, but he says it's a good deal. What do you think?

    the Roland guy says he can't take the mimaki machines obviously but if I manage to sell them, then he can give me a new print/cut (60cm) roland machine for $9.000

    What would you do?

    What kind of items are you selling? Size? Media being used?
