S I G N & D I G I T A L G R A P H I C S • October 2019 • 51 From your line-up of models, what is the best value-for the money for first printer options for wide-format print- ing and why? "From the Epson signage print- ing offerings, I would recommend the 64-inch SureColor S40600 and the SureColor S40600 Print Cut Edition. Both printers offer great value for the money and offer consist, repeatable color and performance with Epson UltraChrome G S 3 4-color solvent ink and the previously mentioned PrecisionCore TFP printhead and pro- duce output at up to 170 ft. per hour," McCausland says. "The SureColor S40600 Print Cut Edition gets a new sign shop up and running with the roll-to-roll printer, Graphtec cutter and ONYX software to provide maximum productivity at a cost- saving price. From stickers and labels to decals and car wraps, the SureColor S40600 quickly and reliably tacks the full section of printing," he adds.

The VJ-1624x features precision craftsman- ship and is built to highly rigorous stan- dards based on our iron-clad commit- ment to quality, so you can expect years of use," Rugen says.

In addition to imaging beautifully, they are incred- ibly easy to use, keeping the learning curve short for first-time printer owners/ users," Valade says. H e a d d s t h a t M S R P s f o r t h e VersaEXPRESS RF-640 and TrueVIS SG series inkjets are Roland VersaEXPRESS wide-format RF-640 printer: $14,995, Roland TrueVIS SG-540 wide-format printer/cutter: $12,995 and Roland TrueVIS SG-300) wide-format printer/ cutter: $9,995. He says both models come with Roland's service and support and are backed up by the company's two- It is important to determine how much business you would need to generate to cover the investment and operation costs of your first printer.
