Hi fellow hackers,
I'm trying to put together or find a machine that can:
- be fed by a sheet of 3M restickable tape
-- hacked together as a series of consumer 1/2" rolls adjacent to one another
- print continuously on this tape
-- just lines, nothing fancy
- has a post-print roll collector such that at the end of the process the roll is "rolled up" again (just like how it started)
Can any of you more experienced with these kinds of machines help suggest anything close to turnkey?
I could go as simple as a Brother continuous label printer, but there's no way to easily get the tape/paper back into a roll.
I *think* I should hack together a solution with a plotter that has a roller-receiver (rather than just a basket catch) but am hoping there's a more simple solution out there.
Thanks for your reading.
Something kind of like this (Mimaki Desktop CG60SL) but a printer, not necessarily a cutter.
Aha... a label rewinder.
