Ready to make a purchase for this machine but I wanted to make sure that it works well with dye-sublimation printing (read: thicker paper than regular inkjet/laser printers).
There's some discussion in the FAQ about the difference between standard and photo machines, but I don't know how that distinction translates to the differences between your two main products (the promaker vs. multimaker)
And also, what size buttons do you recommend for photobooth purposes and why?
Thanks in advance!
A: Hello - these machine do not work great with very thick paper, such as those from an event printer. If you *need* to make 2.25 inch buttons with dye-sub or photo paper, you will want to also purchase the c2225 Photo Punch. What this does is cuts a graphic to exactly 2.25 inches. The paper will not wrap around the button. It is held in place by the mylar. You will see a little bit of the button shell on the perimeter of each finished button. We do have ProMakers specifically for photo paper, but they only come in 3 inch and 3.5 inch sizes. The MultiMakers are not recommended for this purpose at all.
Q: Is it possible to get different size dies to work with this machine to make different size buttons?
A: No you cannot. But believe me, that is a good thing! Machines without movable dies are more reliable and last longer. A much better investment.
