BEGINNER OR SEASONED VETERAN? You will also need to take your com- puter knowledge and experience into account. If you are just starting and new into graphic programs, then going with a smaller, easier-to-use platform will work just fine. The small platforms are meant to be pretty much plug-and-play, while the larger platforms start to deal with RIP software programs and things like that. Another situation you will have to keep in mind is the cartridges. The small-platform carts are one-time use. Plug them in, use them up, and then reorder. No mess involved. The larger printers use refill carts. These carts just continue to be used and refilled each time after they run out. If you're not careful, this can be a very messy task. CONCLUSION There are so many different options out there between printers and printer packages that choosing the right platform can be a very stressful, confusing process. The biggest tip that I can leave you with is just buy smart. Your vendor will be the one that helps you through any hic- cups you may have, so choose one that will back you 100%. Don't settle for less than that. If you buy for the cheapest price, you may pay for it twice over in the long run when you are not able to get any help TJ Kvilhaug is a Subli- mation Sales Specialist at Johnson Plastics.
