    Why Is There This Product Gap? (Cutters)

    I'll use the analogy of it's like going from a Cadillac to an Accord. Both get the job done but it's just a much smoother ride in the Cadillac. More "bells and whistles". For the sake of not bashing our host's flagship cutter too much, some of the things I don't particularly care for: Grit roller placement, mainly the lack of a larger one on the right side like the Graphtec has. Poor quality build. I had to replace the USB port within the first 3 months of using the Titan2 due to it coming loose. Yes it was under warranty, but I still had to sit and wait for them to send me the part. Tracking is noticeably better on the Graphtec, at least in my opinion.

    If you wind up going with a 24 inch cutter, spend the extra on the Graphtec over the Titan2/3. You will be glad in the long run. I use both regularly, and I hate when I have to use the Titan2 at work.

    Problems with htv process

    The basic presses from USCutter tend to be off on the temp. As previously mentioned, check the temps. My press at work, the cheap USCutter one, is 15-20 degrees off. Once I corrected for this the issues stopped.

    Pretty sure USCutter doesn't want to promote trademarked items. Probably best to remove it.

    Refurb or New

    It depends on the warranty when I consider a refurbished item.
  9. For liability reasons I would walk away from this one. Just my opinion.

    color fade issue

    I have had issues with certain rolls fading out of a lot of 11 651 rolls i bought at the same time. It only happened with the least popular colors, so it makes you wonder how long USCutter was sitting on these rolls before they were shipped to customers. Do they have a return policy with Oracal if unused rolls do not sell, or do they just eat the cost. Most likely they eat the cost, so they are probably hard-pressed to just throw the vinyl out. They probably figure it is easier, and cheaper, to just replace problematic rolls when customers complain. Supply chain for them has gotta be tough, balancing what to carry on hand in anticipation of what will sell in order to keep customers happy with ship times. Have to try and guess right when ordering such large quantities to get their discounted pricing.

    graphic tracer program

    From the Imagaro site: " Imagaro, the company that originally created Imagaro Z does not exist anymore. The rights to the latest version have been bought by the company Graphic Powers. " And that is why.
