Most start-up businesses would seem to consider a single integrated machine as a logical decision to begin. According to Chris Tan, Manager and Marketing of Alibaba Printing, said: “Many would look for a device that can do a lot of applications as much as possible when they begin. Therefore, using an integrated machine, start-up business owners would only need one for various applications such as car graphics and decals.”
Chris Tan explains that integrated machines are usually bought by smaller printing shops where space is usually at a premium therefore a single device offers a compact footprint.
He also added that most people will choose for a solvent model of integrated printer cutter since it has the widest variety of applications from banner to transfer. The advantage of eco-solvent is it’s well-suited with vinyl and many other outdoor applications wherein people can print many various things.
Another alternative that start-up business owners can do is to purchase a stand-alone cutting plotter and then separate the cutting from printing. “Based on our experience in the industry, doing so is better than having an integrated machine because you cannot print at the same time if you will be cutting on that machine. When you look at the volume, two machines would be a better option,” – Chris Tan said.
He also added that most often people do not just print the stickers and cut them. They are usually produced in small volumes. They usually print a batch of stickers first, which means having two machines would give the business more flexibility.
However, one of the things that should be noted by aspiring business people is that it would be more costly on their end to buy two separate devices compared to having a single integrated machine. One another important thing to take note of is that business owners would also want to invest in the life span of such devices. The cutter, for example, is a mechanical machine that could last longer, about 10 to 12 years, but the printer could last for only about 4 to 5 years.
Chris Tan points out two main factors should be considered in choosing the best equipment before investing in the printing business. First is the choice between using an integrated machine or a separate cutter and printer. This is mainly based on the volume wherein the use of an integrated machine is a good starting point because it’s a small footprint and low cost. The higher volume would need to consider buying two separate devices for more flexibility and productivity. The second thing to take note is the workflow for the cut marks wherein it should be flexible enough to work with whatever printer will be purchased in the future.
