Now that I have a Specialized Rockhopper 29 Comp

Monkeying around with my vinyl sign machine this afternoon out of boredom. Everybody should have one of these things.

Yeah, I'll never recoup the money for this machine and I don't use it all that much but I wouldn't part with it for anything. Roland GX-24. Not sure what they cost but I think I paid $1600 for mine several years ago.

Desktop units can be had for much, much cheaper and quite frankly do 99.9% of what most people would ever want to do with a sign machine.

The problem is software. The stuff they give you is barely passable once you make something more intense than "Happy Birthday" and good sign software costs a bundle. I use Corel Draw and a plug in called CoCut. Both them together probably about cost a good portion of what the machine cost.
