    I'm just kinda wondering how other SP-300V users are handling banner production over the 30" deal. I still do a lot of cut vinyl banners but when the image/layout requires printing I'll print on vinyl (Oracal 3651 or 3640) and apply it to the banner material which is OK until it comes to pricing. If I price it out as a digitally printed banner that's still cheaper than my SQ. FT. price for printed vinyl media without the banner material which dosen't make a whole lot of sence to me so what have the rest of you been doing in this situation. Ya, I know should have got the 54" printer, oh well, live & learn.

    I have the same issue, so I will either sub it out until I get the 54 or seam two pieces together.

    How are you guys seeming these together? hot air banner welder, or tape?

    3651 vinyl, and 13oz banner cost about the same per sq foot, buying a banner blank is usally cheaper plus it's sewn and grommeted, so unless you have a full color design w/ a lot of coverage, what your doing now works. I would just charge the full color price.

    I have a 30" too. What do you guys think of this:

    Fellers added a 3k banner welder in their catalog looks similar... Can I weld the edges instead of using tape?
