Ugh... kinda put myself into a crunch on this one. I've been considering getting into the CLTT market for a few years now, but so many other projects have prevented me from adding it to the stable. Are there any advantages to straight dye-sub over CLTT I may not be aware of (maybe color saturation, blacks vs. muddy browns, etc.)? From my research over the years, it appears like CLTT is a better route overall... no inks to dry up/clog, for example; CLTT uses regular color toners, not specialty inks; machines about the same price; yadda yadda.
Suggestions on newer model numbers and equipment appreciated. Okidata, Konica Minolta, and Xerox (?) are the brands of choice for CLTT... don't need tabloid size at the moment, but if it's a good price, why not. Also, heat presses... what has worked well for you.
I was hoping to get in on some of the Black Friday deals going on right now, but I'm probably posting this too late for that
