  • VersaCamm SP540v 54" printer plotter donation Feb 2020

    In 2019, Members suggested that the Kamloops Makerspace explore the acquisition of a COLOUR VINYL PRINTER/PLOTTER, I am delighted to report that EXTREME EXCAVATING has graciously funded the purchase, transport, tune-up and initial consumables stock of PICKET FENCE GRAPHICS gently used VersaCamm SP540v 54” machine.

    The arrangement includes:
    • The purchase of the machine ($2000) by Extreme for donation to Kamloops Makerspace.
    • The support of Jason Foreman and Picket Fence Graphics, who will help get us setup, and running smoothly.
    • Funds (up to $1800) for replacing the print heads and print cartridges (this funding is 'in the bank' with Extreme for when it is needed)
    • Funds ($500) for purchasing printable media, including vinyl, wrap, banner, canvas and more!
    • We moved the equipment in Monday Feb 10th around 4pm, thanks to help from Extreme Excavating
