  • manual application coating for digital print (km6501)?

    Is there a good coating for digital print (km c6501) that I can apply manually with a roller or flood with a silkscreen or even spray? something that will air dry, is glossy, and fairly durable. for business cards, flyers, posters.etc... seaching only brings up uv coating (not in the budget), and aqueous (doesn't work well with km toner I've heard).

    25 Aug 2014 | 7:33 am
    Lower rates of asthma and other health problems are frequently cited as benefits of policies aimed at cutting carbon emissions from sources like power plants and vehicles, because these policies also lead to reductions in other harmful types of air pollution. But just how large are the health benefits of cleaner air in comparison to the costs of reducing carbon emissions? MIT researchers looked at three policies achieving the same reductions in the United States, and found that the savings on health care spending and other costs related to illness can be big -- in some cases, more than 10…

    Nein, nicht alles war früher besser. Vergleicht man etwa den Rumpelfußball, den unsere N11 um die Jahrtausendwende darbot, mit den bisweilen euphorisierenden Vorstellungen der heutigen Truppe (Sieben! Zu! Eins!), so trägt das Hier und Jetzt eindeutig paradiesische Züge. Richtet man seinen Blick hingegen auf den IT-Channel, sieht die Sache schon etwas anders aus. 9 von 10 Fachhändlern, Distris oder Service Providern dürften auf die Frage, ob es früher „besser“ gewesen sei, wahrscheinlich mit einem donnernden Ja antworten. Und die Situation wird nicht einfacher. Folgende Faktoren,…

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…
  • Smiling and Dialing

    Jim Raffel
    28 Jul 2014 | 9:30 pm
    Photo Credit Perhaps you’ve heard the expression in business that “nothing happens until someone sells something.” Smiling and dialing is an important step in the sales process. If you want to increase sales you have to do more than just let people know your product exists. You have to sell them on the benefits they will derive in exchange for the money they will pay you. A little background Twenty years ago smiling and dialing meant just that: Put a smile on your face, pick up the phone and call your most promising prospects. Or in some cases it meant cold call a list of…

The previous four installments focused on business strategies I was reminded of on specific hikes during a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains. This post discusses the more general topic of approaching life’s ups and downs differently. Climbing up a hill is much different than running or walking back down it. Uphill and downhill are equally challenging However, going uphill and coming back downhill are both difficult and challenging in their own ways. It’s in the recognition of these differences…

  • How to Reinvent Yourself and Find New Markets in the Digital Age

    Deborah Corn
    27 Aug 2014 | 9:07 am
    By Jeff Lewis Early in my career, I had a job in Manhattan. Living in the suburbs of New York City, I had the same routine every day: drive to the train station, take the train to another train, take that train to mid-town. I’d work an 8-hour day and then do the reverse commute. For the most part, the day was reliably predictable and predictably reliable. It was, however, a stagnant existence that resulted in perpetual stagnancy. What if I had shaken up the routine somewhat…what could have happened? Hindsight tells me that had I reinvented my role and responsibilities, perhaps the…
  • Five Pieces Of Equipment You MUST Have To Be A Book Maker – And One That Is Essential!

    By Francis Atterbury Some time ago, I took the decision not to buy or own manufacturing equipment for making our books. I’m not against being a bona fide printer; I have owned and run print shops before. But unless you are in a ‘dead’ industry like letterpress where 1950s equipment represents the best it will ever be, the need to invest and keep up to date means the equipment tends to drive the sales. I wanted to make our books the way I wanted, to the standards I wanted and not to be deflected by the need to meet monthly repayments or utilisation targets. Although you can make great…

    By Joanne Gore As someone who has lived on both sides of the sales fence, both as a consultant selling my services, and a purchaser dealing with vendors on a daily basis, it never ceases to amaze me how some companies seemingly just “don’t want the business”. And while I’m sure they would all argue this is not the case, unfortunately actions often speak louder than words. I recently issued a request for a quote for a pretty significant piece of business. I gave detailed information, including when I expect to receive the quote. Not one vendor replied. NOT ONE! Are you shaking your…
