    Hello. I currently own a Roland GX-24 and have been cutting small decals and tshirt vinyl with it. I am looking to expand and go with full color printing. I'd like to keep my GX-24 and just cut out full color designs that I would print on vinyl, however, I need to buy a wide format printer that will print on vinyl and then feed it into the GX-24 for cutting. I am new to this and would like to know if anyone has any advice as to which is a good printer to start with? I'm not looking to spend more than $3000 max. I need something that has waterproof inks that can print on sign vinyl. I understand I may need to cut the vinyl to fit the printer. I'm looking for a printing width between 17"-24". I am just not sure where to start and which printer inks are compatible with sign vinyl for full color printing. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    $3000 HAH HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA! The laminator you will need to go with said printer
    will cost more than that! More to to that "cutting stickers out" like you do now.

    You are going to need $20,000 min.
    Unless you get and old Edge, and they only do 15" film, and the foil is expensive compaired to ecosol ink.
