Greetings! 
This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last week's survey
Do you have any favourite stories about clients who shop around??

  • Let's face it, we all want the best deal, so you can't blame customers from shopping around, especially the first time buyer.
  • Not really, just one or two about clients who get a quote from us and then do the rounds kooking for better quotes, we assume, but ultimately come back to us.  
  • I had a doozy this week... Guy got his secretary/PA to get quote for a very large canvas print and went so far as to download several images for a collage - which we would charge to put together - no problem so far. He had alt quotes and chose us - then said he'sd pay us after he had approved the soft proof of our art. We said we might have to change the quote to be time based instead of fixed as he may change his mind several times. He cancelled the order. Then began a series of emails, me explaining that all jobs are payment with order, him saying that he was a real estate agent and wasnt prepared to accept my terms. The rub was that we had done exactly the same job on our terms and they were chuffed with the job a few months back. So he changed his "policy" .... we lost the job...hey it's Krimas time, where's the spitit?
  • a new client came to me for a quote for a small job on his van. I quoted $450. He said he would run it by his 'boss' (wife) & get back to me. 3 weeks later he was back with a sob story. He went to another sign co. for a quote & was asked if had any quotes yet. When he told them mine he was promptly quoted $20 less, so he gave them the job. He was then asked for the money up front & told to return the following week to get the job done. SURPRISE !! went back next week to find an empty building. NOW...because he got ripped by someone else, he wanted me to do the same job for half price. Ha ! I had a 2 word answer for him that is not suitable to publish. 3 mths later he came back & asked me to do the job, without quoting, & he is now a regular customer, who often mentions how stupid he was to try to go the El-Cheapo route.
  • A one off customer who wanted a business card with the whole Shakespeare volume on the front. The amount of information on the front of the card meant the highest size font that could be used was 4. When we refused to print the card they got a bit stropped and said they would go elsewhere. Guess what .. they were back within a week but we still had to advise then that they still required to much information on the front and it took some doing to get them to agree to much of the details to go on the reverse of the card.
  • I just can not stand the phone calls" How much is a sign" then you know they shop around with no intention to buy.

Can you help Mal Ross?
With STATIC CLING CONCEPT from General Formulations printed on my Mimaki JV33 I have the feed temp low (28deg) and after print heater (38deg) If the feed temp is higher it make roller marks in the static cling and the print is no good.
My problem is the horrible marks that appear on the print...These marks ar clearly on the static cling before printing and become worse with ink on top...as though the ink didnt take well and was rolled when too wet...so the ink came off. This was not the case as on close inspection the material had the marks on it before printing
It seem as though these marks have come from the back of the LINER PAPER  
see att photo
cheers
