    Better Homes & Gardens, People temporarily halting some print subscriptions

    We recently acquired a Roland VG2-640 and Royal Sovereign Laminator and our wide format business is already taking off.

    Konica Minolta C7090 or C7100 with KM controller

    Does anyone have the new C7090/C7100 with the KM controller? We had one installed last month and KM can't get the normal job list menu to show up on the machine screen. Wondering if you went through the same issue and how they fixed it. Unfortunately we're the first in our area with a KM...

    Feedback on Hydraulic Guillotine Cutters

    We currently have a 21.5" Triumph 5551-06 cutter (~10-12yrs old) which has been a great unit. We want to upgrade to a larger size so we can start cutting down parent sheets. Because we know the Triumph is a good line, we're looking at the Triumph 7260 which is a 28" cutter with programming and...

    Specifically looking for anyone who either currently has both brands, or had one and switched to the other. These are the 2 we've narrowed down to for Eco-solvent and we're looking for feedback. They are both similarly priced, produce a good image, and software seems similar enough. Just...

    OKI C942 Envelope Printer - consumables limit

    When the fuser reaches 150k impressions, it forces us to replace it. Since they are ~$500 each, we want to push past the 150k impressions until we are unhappy with the output quality. We are mostly just printing a small logo and return address in the upper left corner, so quality is not a huge...

    OKI C942 Envelope Printer - run quantity limit

    We recently purchased an OKI C942 with a Fiery Controller and envelope feeder. We need to do runs of 5,000 at a time or more. We input a quantity of 5,000 in the Fiery, but the machine only accepts a qty of 999 each time. So that means we need to send the job 5+ times. Is there a way to send...

    We are an inplant and recently acquired an OKI C942 envelope printer. Started off running #10 regulars long flap edge first, no problems.
