    Managed Print Services (MPS), when introduced to the business community less than five years ago, seemed like the perfect solution to what was becoming a big problem for many businesses: controlling the cost and confusion from print devices. Most businesses had too many printers for their needs and some when overused, others underutilized. The printers and MFPs used different supplies with different yields and quality and had different maintenance requirements. Costs per page were steadily rising and too much time was being spent managing office printing. MPS – a good concept for certain…

    Sales of copy paper declined less than 3% in both 2011 and 2012. Normally, sales declines of any size are not good news for the business or industry reporting it. But for paper manufacturers and distributors, it is good news since 3% is substantially less than was expected. Projections were based on an expected widespread increased use and storage of emails and word documents in electronic files instead of paper. Another factor working against paper use is the emphasis on sustainable paper use by utilizing 2-sided printing and reducing unnecessary copies. Neither of these two trends have…

Except for compatibles for new machines that have been in the marketplace for less than six months, I think everyone should be buying compatibles for their business and personal use. I don’t like the term win-win because it is rarely true. However, convincing an OEM customer to switch to compatibles is a win-win. The customer get a product that is just as good (maybe better) for considerably less money and the supplies dealer makes more profit on the sale. OEM companies have never wavered from the position that compatible toners and inks are…

    Richard Dannenberg
    14 Apr 2014 | 8:07 am
    Story of the Week Last week, I had the opportunity to have lunch with one of my clients and his new sales manager. The client is a local shop with a stable print and office supply business. He has two sales people who have hit the wall, and seized the opportunity to hire a recently retired sales manager to reinvigorate the program. I was very impressed with the “new guy.” He’s bright, an easy conversationalist who asks good questions, and he’s coming into the printing business without the usual preconceived notions. He has lots of ideas and has already started turning…

  • Marketing Opportunity: Your Community Needs a Local Printer

    Caveat Emptor: Two Tales of Woe I remember the day that the print world changed. My printing company purchased a small format 4 color offset press in 2005. At the time, we were doing a lot of business with freelance designers and all of the projects were rush. Our digital capabilities were OK, but there were some projects that just didn’t fit. We purchased a quarter-sized Hamada Press with all the whistles and bells, and I was excited at the opportunity to provide a set of capabilities that weren’t readily available in the Middle Georgia marketplace. I did the homework –…

    SWAM: Your Account is Flagged Some lessons must be learned the hard way. Many of my readers and most of my clients know that I have long been an advocate of LinkedIn as a content marketing tool. That changed yesterday when my account was flagged. Yesterday, my small business and I fell victim to an acronym – SWAM.  The letters stand for Site Wide Auto Moderation and the consequences are dire, at least for someone like me who heretofore had depended on LinkedIn as the primary social media platform for promoting content. SWAM is like super secret probation. It limits the user’s posting…

  • Why buy genuine ink cartridges when compatibles are much cheaper

    kyle
    17 Apr 2014 | 5:23 am
    The printing industry has evolved over the years and the evolution has brought some extra additions with it. One of these additions is compatible ink cartridges. These ink cartridges are produced by a third party that has no affiliation to the original manufacturer of a printer. Most users complain that the genuine ink cartridges are extremely expensive. The compatible alternatives are cheaper hence they are receiving more buyers. This begs the question, is cheap ultimately expensive? Why should you buy a cheap compatible? for instance a T0711 original ink cartridge costs around £15.00 for…

  • 4 Dimensional Printing

    Guest Writer
    21 May 2013 | 6:34 am
    What is 4D printing, and how does it work? A 4D printer uses a type of 3D printer that is unlike any other; a 3D printer makes different shapes by taking several or more and adds them together piece by piece. The idea behind a 3D printer is to take each layer and add them together to make one solid shape. There are many types of 3D printers, but this is the basic idea behind what they do. With 4D printers, this concept takes it a step further.  It takes the same layers and uses them in a way that helps them to form the same solid shape on their own. It’s as if they come alive right…
