Hello I want to print guitar pedal boxes . They are 5”x4” by 1.5” deep . inam looking at A4 and A3 printers . There are a bunch on Ali express that do flatbed Bottle and cloth . Non have a brand name they use the epison l800 print head I believe not a lot of info . They range from $1900-2300 with shipping . 6 bottles of ink is $180 500ml each bottle These are the only ones on aliexpress in my price range . Are these good printers? I was also wondering anyone knows if I have to use a vectorized image with these type of printers . Parts seem cheap . I am a hobbyist . I am a total newb to this UV Led flatbed A3 or A4 field . I will probably get the A4 . I don’t need the bigger printer . do I have to use it everyday ? Will the ink dry up and clog if I don’t ? I would want to make 25-30 boxes one day a month . Is that possible ? Meaning I make my batch and clean it for storage ? How do you clean it ? Do I run solvent ? The solvent looked to be 70 bucks a pint . I sure could use a Good Samaritan mentor if anyone wants to give advice I would appreciate it . Right now I print decal paper stick it on and put 15 coats of clear Krylon spray paint . It takes 1 hour the first night 5 min 3 times a day for 4 days then I have to let clear coat dry and harden for min 3-5 days . If one thing goes wrong I start over many times the metal powder coated Vox is ruined $8 each . I lose 1 out of 5 including time labor material . All together I have 10 days $12 and 2 hours to make a custom box . I want to be able to make single boxes . Small batches and a few hopefully in the hundreds . there are a couple places that do UV printing for guitar pedal boxes but they charge $150 for setup so not going to work for single pedals . Alibaa has a printer called the Demsum it’s only 1000 dollars with ink and shipping . Is this a good brand ? my biggest questions are Clean up and how often ? solvent is there a cheaper way to clean than the reccomended solvent ? Do I have to vectorize if I am using a high DPi and clean up the images really well . I use gimp for my artwork . I have a real passion for this and I want to learn all I can to be able to make it a working hobby and someday a career .
