    Do you mean traditional button badges, or do you mean heat pressed garment logos?
    The ET 2710 will be good for the former. Colours on mine are quite good.

    My Graphtec CE6000 is no better. Good vinyl cutter but no good at finding registration marks, and the accuracy wanders after a few feet.

    The printer that the F500 is based on has been sold as a commercial plan/poster printer for years. The ink is the same as Epson uses in its larger pro printers. Why is the F 500 a hobby printer?

    Worth looking into the Mutoh. You will need a standalone cutter, but that is no bad thing - part of my problem with the Mimaki is the garment media getting too pliable due to the heater. It lifts if...

    Let us know how that works out. I am in a dilema as to what to replace my 1500w printers with. If it works well, the F500 is only 2.5 times the price of the L1800. Wider than I need, but on the plus...

    It is a mistake to under estimate the quality of the L1800. It's lineage goes back through the 1500w/1430 Artisan/1400/1390 - probably further. It has been the 'go to' mainstay of the small format...
