😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 A very BIG, expensive one, and I don’t think it photocopies.
They’re big commercial presses, we have a supplier who has one. Roll fed, can print A2 posters all day long.
Not sure if its the same press, but they make one that can print labels and stickers, combined with a laser cutter, impressive bit of kit, but must be shifting some volume to warrant that kind of beast.

Great machines!quote :
you should see it in action David, cooooooool pieces of kit!!!!!
Prices for new – top range Xeikon 8800 was approx. £800,000 – £1 million depending on spec., 3000 series, a lot cheaper at £300,000++ depending on spec.

Oh there’s no denying they’re a good bit of kit, but a huge investment :yikes:

Sorry chaps, as much as I love this business, if I had a million quid to spend, I’d be drowning in drugs & hookers, not toner

If you had a million quid, you can replace my keyboard, spat my coffee all over the place laughing 😆 😆 😆

Apologies Dave, was just thinking out loud

Cheered up what’s been a pretty dull day :thumbsup:

Even if I had a million quid there’s no way I’d even consider buying something with a name I can’t pronounce :smiles:

But your house wont earn you £100,000’s per year. These machines are a small fortune for a reason. You dont lay out that sort of money to make £10,000 a year.

I guess it all comes down to ambition Steff. If I ever hit a million in the bank, that’ll do quite nicely for me, I’m out
