NEED A SHOPPING LIST PLEASE!!!
Posted by: njelsmom (---.machlink.com)

I want to buy a vinyl sign cutter and some supplies.

Mostly I want to do 'home interior' type things like put some words on my walls, etc.

But I also see that I have the need for at least 3 banners in the near future. So want something that will do that as well. I'd like to have something that could grow a little as I might see a need.

I don't have a HUGE budget, but want more than a very basic 'crafter' type cutter. I also want to have a small stock of vinyls that could be used in or out -- (if there is a dual purpose type).

I know I need the 'tape'(what size?) and ... ??? what else? Software? Again something fairly basic would work.

What would YOU shop for with a $1500 - $2000 budget? (for everything)

What brands, where you would buy it, best pricing, etc.

PLEASE get me started! I'm so confused as I shop and read information, etc. I really want to do this SOONER rather than later.

Somewhere that takes PAY PAL would be preferred!

I'll be anxiously awaiting any and all responses so I can see what you EXPERTS suggest!

Thx
NJELSMOM

I just made my second cutter/software purchase. after 4-5 years I decided it was time. My first purchase was a Lynx s-60 w/ signpal apprentice software(a great first cutter package). I paid in the neighborhood of 2,300.00 I guess it was. It sounds like it would easily handle your tasks and alot more. If your interested in buying this Package from me it is in great cond. with the original blade still installed. You can email me at kbeangsox@yahoo.com I WILL SAVE YOU SOME MONEY...

I am looking at starting my own business primarily focusing on pre-permitting, permit secural, and site due diligence. I have almost ten years in the sign business - program management, sales, installation, design, permitting, variances, and surveys. I have worked with national accounts, developers, and architects nationwide. I know there is a need for this type of service but not quite sure how it would be received in the sign industry. The majority of sign companies that I am aware of complete their own in-house pre-permitting. However over the years I have a accumulated a nice database and great contacts and I know that my knowledge and expertise is marketable. I would like to hear comments from others in the sign industry - pros and cons. Would you use a service such as this? Have you utilized this type of service in the past? If not, why not? Any insight or comments that you can provide would be wonderful.
