Default Sign-making on Mac OS X

Computerized sign-making has become a big business. Many programs run only on Windows, and some of the plotters and cutters require a parallel or serial connection (so need a converter of some sort to work with a current Mac, if they will run with a Mac at all).

So it was interesting to see a discussion on Macintouch of Mac-based sign-making systems. The thread includes recommendations of the Graphtec Plotter/Cutter CE 3000-60, which ships with built-in Mac OS X and USB support; and the Flexi-Sign Pro 7.5, which works with any plotter but has a dongle.

There is also a Magisign plug-in for Illustrator that runs on the Mac (or Windows, I believe), which costs less. Not sure what machines it works with, however.
