We just got a quote from Printware for $68k for the 1175 - in case anyone is wondering. We are trying to decide on envelope presses at the moment as well but was hoping to spend under $50k because we have some other equipment needs as well. Our Konicas with envelope fusers run pretty well but they're awful with A sizes, anything small, etc. I got some samples off the 1175 and I wasn't blown away by the quality but I think its decent for an ink jet printer and anything that requires really vivid color can run on our Konicas if we need to. For anyone who has an 1175, are you able to print directly from a mail software like Accuzip or Bulkmailer? Where are you purchasing your consumables?
