    Printing window decals.

    Thank you David, I will go for a vinyl cutter but there are so many different brands and technologies, I have no idea how it works. I think some are automatic some are manual, some have lasers and servo, step motor etc. Others dont? Contour cutting? Could you recommend me a good beginners machine? Nothing advanced but easy to operate, not something I end up throwing away and give up on vinyl cutting. Price range is around 1K Something to add, I saw some videos about machines that prints on vinyl and then cuts it, are those the expensive ones you were talking about? Alternatively is it not possible to buy a cheap medium sized printer, print a logo on vinyl and use a vinyl cutter to cut out the printed logo? Thanks again

    Printing window decals.

    Thank you David. I appreciate you taking the time to help me out. As you said it is impossible for me to compete with speciality shops with lots of investment and the right machines and tools. I watched a few videos on how vinyl cutters work and it is definitely something I would use but not at the moment. Right now I need to be able to print out a complete photographic picture made with for instance photoshop and turn it into a window sticker. I take it that you are quite experienced in this field, should I start with the printer I mentioned and use lamination? What do you recommend me doing? Edit: Something just came to my mind. Is it possible to transparent paper that is self adhesive on both sides to stick it on the printed paper and stick it to the window from inside the store? Would that not protect it against UV damage?

    Printing window decals.

    Hi. First of, forgive by bad english as it is not my 1st language. Im completely new to printing, well, except for A4 paper I am an engineering student with an eye for design, at least thats what people tell me. I like designing things for some reason I design webpages, gift cards, manuals, ads, brochures, signs, billboards, posters etc and I love it. Now I want to take it one step further and start to make som money but I have no idea how to start. I dont know what machines are used If anyone could help me out I would really appreciate it. I tried googling it and came over huge machines, bigger than my apartment that costs 200K+ and lost all hope but then I found something called: Epson Stylus Pro 9450. Its quite affordable, I can get a used one for about 1K. Is this the right printer for me? My main priority is to print store window decals/logo. Will this machine print on transparent adhesive paper? Do I need some special ink to counter rain and UV damage? Thanks
