  1. I just purchased the us MH-871 34" with stand. I live in a apartment with not much space so I'm trying to build a versatile work bench, something where the heat press is up top and the cutter/plotter is tucked underneath the table top. As of now I am stuck with the height of the table top because I cannot find anywhere the exact LxWxH of the whole unit sitting on the stand. Would anyone know the LxWxH of the complete setup? Thank you

    which printer?

    Let me start by telling everyone my plans for this post. I work for a local union an if you don't know we have stickers. Plenty of stickers on our hard hats/ lunchboxes. My plane was to buy a decently priced printer print a few designs in need hopefully get bigger with it to fulfill more orders withing the local union trades. Most of the stickers on lunchboxes and on hard hats do fade with time working outside all the time or hats being tossed around so fading isn't much of an issue. I'm fine with printing them laminating and sending it through the cutter. I don't see myself doing tons of batches all at once. Kind of if you need them I'll get them so I belive solvent based printers will be out because I won't be doing a 24/7 operation. More of a nightime/ weekend warrior side hustle kind of thing. Which printer would best fit my needs? I've been checking some Epson models out but figure this forum would steer me in the correct direction. Thank you for the advice

    Dakotagrafx thank you. No, I have never used vector. I plan on buying my 1st plotter very shortly. Have it down to 3 I'm thinking. A usctitan28-vmc from uscutter vs-edg-28-b or a vs-spc-28-b from heat press nation. I'm thinking the titan because it has contour cutting about

    Okay sorry again. Names chris from the northeastern part of Pennsylvania. I am a local operating engineer. What I'm looking to do is supply my local unions with union made products albeit; hats, jackets, shirts, stickers , decals and would like to move on after that to possibly bigger products signs, banners, when I get fully established or good enough

    https://www.uscutter.com/TITAN-Vinyl-Cutter-28-53-inch The 28" titan cutter I seen seems like a good start, no? Not to small, not overly to huge.

    Yes. I'm soo sorry for that. I just wanted to Jump right into things but I'm absolutely brand new to this. So vinyl I suppose I will stick to. I've seen cutters and a 27" or a 34" would be nice to start with?

    So what I'm looking into is vinyl but what slice&dice is saying I need to do print? Lol that I'm unaware of. Lol Would it hurt if I could ask for maybe a checklist to get started for a equipment basics. For instance vinyl I'm guessing I'll need a cutter, heat press, printer? AnD for print just a printer?

    Yes I would like to start somewhat big just so I'm not restricting myself with size limits right off the bat. The 34" sounds like a good size. Money wise. I havent a clue how much everything would be but to throw a number out I'm comfortable with and I'm assuming you are speaking about just a cutter or printer? A 900 dollar limit would be alright for me.

    I'm a new to it all DIY'r that quite honestly needs a bit of direction on what to buy to get into custom wrapping? I'd like to start out with small things:, shirts, stickers, corn hole boards, small landscape trailers and possibly move onward and upward. For instance which type vinyl machine or even program will be best for 3 or 4 layering or colors in a design? Thanks for the help or any advice. I appreciate it.
