In their own words

Customer experiences with the Ioline 100 System

The Ioline 100 is the finest piece of machinery I have ever owned.

We have had Iolines for the past 22 years and have had very good performance.

Bottineau, ND   

I never realized how fast a plotter could be. We do a lot of long jobs [with the Ioline cutter] and are happy with the tracking.

Homer City, Pa.   

It’s really nice being able to use a Sharpie® pen for pen plots. We have two 49 in SmarTracs. We purchased another brand and we didn’t like it. We sent those back and got the SmarTracs and we really like them.

Newcastle, Penn   

I have had an Ioline for more than 10 years and I am satisfied with it. It (the plotter) has fed me and my family. (literal translation from Portuguese)

I know I am a computer dummy, but you didn’t make me feel that way. Thank you for your personable brand of customer support.
