I do color management and print process control for large and grand format printers. My company is Correct Color. I've been at this for 15 years, and in that time I've seen every combination there is of RIP's printers, media, etc.
I've also helped numerous companies in situations just such as yours in making decisions regarding equipment that fits their needs perfectly.
Whatever it is you're considering, I've seen it and I can advise. And when you put your shop together, I can setup your workflow so that you are producing premium quality work, first sheet, every time, and making money from day one, with no "learning curve" at all.
