    The LC-100K just looks like a small label printer. I can't even find any where that sells the supplies for the thing. Im betting that ribons and vinyl for that thing are quite expensive and probably are not that durable. I personally wouldnt waste $500 on that machine.

    Honestly your best bet would be to look for a used gerber edge. I see them for sale every so often. Its going to be a bit more than $500, but it will be worth it.

    For small decals, or any 8.5x11 print, you can use an alps thermal md printer. You have to laminate the prints, but they hold up outside very well. It is the same process that roland uses. only smaller. You cant buy new, but ebay has them all the time, and the ink ribbons. on Ebay look under alps printer, and look for any md printer. Also citizen printiva printers are the same thing. I got mine delivered for a total of $80. These printers are also the best for heat transfers for shirts. I use Duratrans paper and the prints last for years on shirts. For printing on vinyl, I just cut a piece of my sign vinyl to 8.5x11 and hit print. I bought an inexpensive program that lets you print a larger picture by doing it in sections.
    For anyone wanting to do small graphics for magnetic or other small sign projects, this cheap printer will do it.

    I agree with the above post. I have been using Alps MD printers for years with polyester paper and laminate which can be found at walmart.

    I have found this guy:

    http://systems-consulting.com/

    to be one of the best resources when it comes to supplies.

    I have stickers I have made several years ago, exposed to the extreme sun/harsh winters here in NJ, that look as good as the day they were printed. There is a yahoo group for the Alps with tons and tons of information. I have purchased a few Alps on eBay that were broken, and sent them in for exchange (you can no longer buy these things new). I'd take a look around, might be exactly what you are looking for...
