  1. Love Square. For those with the issue of a weekly limit, I sent them an e-mail with more information about my business and they raised my weekly limit to $3,300. I am a small operation so it works great for me. johnsilver- SalesVu sounds good too if you have a good size business.
  2. Square. Love it. www.squareup.com No monthly fee's. Can swipe cards right on my smart phone or even my ipod touch.

    Car Vinyl which is good to use

    I have used 651 and it worked out decent. Had some lifting and cracking after a while. 751 really is the better media to use for vehicle lettering though.

    Red 651 will fade in a few months just FYI. Step up to 751 if you want something that will last longer.

    Updating my logo...

    The difference is a drop shadow around "Great Lakes" in one of the samples. I have never had a need yet to have my logo in single color, so I guess I haven't ever put any thought to it. Anything I have used it for, has been full color. Envelopes and all.

    redone my back window

    Should join your talents, re-do the back window in white, all of it. Then airbrush the vinyl to really make it stand out.

    Can't say I am a fan of the font used. Looks like a fun project though.

    Question about Zen Green & Graphtec

    A laserpoint is nothing like a true optical sensor system. Yes you can just load it in, it will auto scan for the registration marks and cut. The laser point just shines a little laser dot that you have to manually line up to the registration mark. It will get you close, but not perfect.

    Zen or Copam

    The Zen has digital servos instead of stepper motors. That alone to me makes it worth the extra coin. The Green is your basic cutter, and the Black is another step up with more force and tangical capabilities.

    Oracal 651 Wrap for customer

    I agree, don't create more work for yourself because the guy wants to save a few bucks.

    What else do I need to get started?

    Clear tape is all I will use. I don't get why people are so against it. When you want to do multi color its much easier to see. I also find it to be stronger and less prone to tearing on me. Yeah, its a little more, but so what. Also you will want more then just a 12" roll. I would get a 6" as well for when you do smaller things. I have 1" all the way to 24" on hand in pretty much 2-3" increments. You will find its less wastefull to have multiple sizes on hand as well as being easier to work with. Just add to your collection as you see the need.

    Hey Dummy!......What were you thinking?

    Hey Dummy!......What were you thinking?

    yep... all of the above
  22. Thats the chance you take using a chinese hobby grade cutter for business. I was there once myself when I started out. But once you spend a little more on better equipment, you will find you make even more money with it. I don't understand if you had work pending, why didn't you spend the whole $300 and buy another machine to use while the other was being repaired. To me it makes a lot more sense then loosing customers because you don't have a working cutter. Then you would have a backup all the time. Its called cost of doing business. Now is the perfect time to invest in a better cutter (something with digital servo motors) and keep that one for a backup/second machine. Once you have used a better machine, you will kick yourself for waiting so long to upgrade.
