I tried a few sheets of 300gsm today, but it keeps coming up with 'J2 feed error' and the cardstock only makes it as far as the first section of the machine. Just wondering what I'm doing wrong or if there is a way of adjusting the machine to take heavier stock? I’ve heard people put 300gsm through the machine without issue, so not sure what I’m doing wrong.

    Just when you thought screen penetration was nearing 100% and that digital communication was the best way to reach today’s youth, surprising new research covered by the Washington Post shows that in many cases, students still prefer print. Print: Still a Powerful Educational Tool Studies from such renowned sources as The University of Washington and American Linguist Naomi S.

Our visual systems are all different, including the number and arrangement of rods and cones in our retinas, the yellowing of our lens with age, and the complicated wiring in the brain. Color deficiency, or color blindness, affects almost 10 percent of the male population in the U.S., and about one percent of females. Most of those people can still perceive color, but with less variation from the rest of the population, and…

Why? Products that people don’t recognize represent a breath of fresh air amid the usual suspects with their well-known labels – and sometimes, an unfamiliar company name or packaging design turns out to be just the ticket for companies that are eager to set their products…

Lean is more than a business philosophy, it’s a way of life. It’s also simpler to implement than the consultants would have you believe.

    You know who you are. You live for clean lines, square corners, exactness, and all the finer details of postpress work. Some people may call you a perfectionist. But why do you settle for only the highest quality product? Because you know that’s what sets you apart from competitors. Distinguishing your company can be difficult in our industry because, well, face it: marketing isn’t cheap! That’s why for years postpress companies have entered the BIA Product of Excellence Awards for their chance to be recognized as the “best of the best” in graphic finishing and loose-leaf products.

  • Why My Sales Funnel Is On A Pivot

    Jim Raffel
    3 Feb 2015 | 10:26 am
    Image Credit “Sales funnel” is a phrase some folks use to describe their sales process. For most business models, sales is a numbers game. You need to get the word out to lots of people in order for a certain percentage of them to become revenue producing customers. The fact that my sales funnel is on a pivot is a realization that not everyone who enters the sales funnel exits it in the same place. Thanks to my friend Phil Gerbyshak, I’ve started referring to the multiple exit points of the pivoting sales funnel as the revenue escalator. We’ll get to the revenue escalator in a moment…
  • 2015 Three Words

    Jim Raffel
    31 Dec 2014 | 8:30 pm
    Over the last several years, I’ve been sharing my annual plan for business success for the coming year. I start by choosing three words that define where I want to be 12 months from now. Then I turn those words into a visual map; which is the image I’ve included with this post. Before I get further, it’s important to give credit where credit is due. The three words concept comes from my friend Chris Brogan, who has been sharing his three words since 2006. The visualization of those three words is a form of Skecthnotes that I learned from my friend Mike Rohde. It’s been an enlightening…

    Know those days when you just feel “off?” We all have those days; and when I look back over the last several months I’ve found a common thread in those days. In general, my daily routines got messed up one way or another. Routines in your personal and business life allow you to be calm, focused, balanced and centered. Without routines, it’s like you’re being tossed about in the ocean with no life raft. How does a daily routine look? When I’m not traveling, I start each day with a 1.8 mile walk. This typically happens before 7 a.m. and three days a week is…
  • Why Helping Others Is An Awesome Business Strategy

    Jim Raffel
    18 Aug 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Helping others can be a tricky topic because it likely has a different meaning for each of us. For you it might mean donating clothing or other gently used household items to a charitable organization. For others it might mean giving money to a charitable cause. It could also mean giving your time and talents to help others become better people in some way or another. All of those are great definitions of helping others and maybe you engage in all of those activities. But here’s the kicker: Do you consider helping your customers by giving of yourself? You should and here’s why.

    Photo Credit Over the last few months my mantra has become: “Focus on what can be – not what is or has been – because you can only impact the future.” It’s pointless to waste your time and energy worrying about the choices you’ve made that got you to where you are today. Instead focus that time and energy on a strategy and plan to get you where you could be, where you want to be. Today is what it is, get over it and move on. Today could be an excellent day or a craptastic one for you. In either case, I’m gong to suggest you just get over it and move…

    Each year, a huge number of toner cartridges are tossed into the dust bin, winding up in our planet’s landfills or incinerators. Reusing these toner cartridges is simple, productive and useful to the environment. It helps to minimize solid waste, preserve raw materials and the power expected to manufacture another product. Most cartridges can be reused up to six times- they are repaired, refilled and afterward resold to customers at a lower cost than brand name cartridges. Reused cartridges create the same quality and results as a new one. This article focuses on how you can send the…

    Customs Today reported on the seizure of 18 lbs of crystal methamphetamine, or 'crystal meth' in Jakarta by Indonesia's National Police, with 11 smugglers arrested who were said to be "members of an international drug smuggling ring" operating in the city, and the syndicate said to have been "controlled from China", with drugs distributed from Jakarta to “other big cities throughout the country". 4.6 lbs of the drugs were "hidden inside 14 printer ink cartridges from China", with Senior Commissioner Rikwanto stating that "the syndicate used a new method by hiding their drugs inside ink…
  • US Office Retailers Losing Market Share To Smaller Stores

    25 Feb 2015 | 5:17 am
    MarketWatch reported that the survey showed office supply stores earned around $20 billion in revenue in 2014, but that this has "been declining" at an average of about 2.60% every year for the past five years "mostly thanks to recessionary factors" including "weak consumer confidence and low disposable incomes", as well as the "growing popularity" of both "discount and other retailers that may sell similar items". This is perhaps reflected in the recent merger between Staples and Office Depot in the USA, which we previously reported on, and which "couldn't have come at a better time"…

    11 Feb 2015 | 7:25 am
    The OEM is attempting to patent the process whereby the foam acts as an airway in the cartridge in Europe, which could be significant for inkjet cartridge remanufacturers.HP’s patent application, EP 2 807 032 A1, refers to an inkjet cartridge featuring a capillary material – the block of foam – which is placed in the chamber of the cartridge between a vent and outlet, in order for the material – when the ink level has gone down – to then form an airway between the vent and outlet. In turn, a wick covering an outlet is provided, or the outlet is otherwise configured to create a break…

    6 Feb 2015 | 4:15 am
    The Wall Street Journal reported that Staples has confirmed a $6.3 billion deal to acquire Office Depot following reports that the companies had been in merger talks; with Staples stating that it has been in discussions regarding a merger since September. The deal would see the US have just "one chain of office supply superstores", compared to three just a couple of years ago, after Office Depot and OfficeMax merged in 2013. As a result, it is expected that antitrust scrutiny will focus on the impact the deal may have on corporate customers rather than consumers; with the article noting that…
