Hi, I'm interested in purchasing a digital foil printer (to avoid having to buy dies all the time and outsource small-run foil printing). My research has yielded lots of no-name options from China with small print areas and I'm hesitant to invest in those machines w/o any way to test them or speak to current owners to get their reviews.
Can anyone recommend a brand in the US or Canada that has a fairly large print area? So far the Impress Systems machines http://www.impresssystems.com/ seem to be a front-runner but has anyone had personal experience with these machines or anything comparable?
I've read the other threads that mention DIY options for foil transfer but I'm not interested in going that route. I'd mainly use the machine for personalization of books, journals and stationery.
