A very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to you all!!
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 survey from December
  • I purchased my machines when they were at a premium cost the prices have come down a lot since, the biggest cost was the regular servicing even when they weren't receiving a lot of use. Also the cost of the servicing was so inconsistent from acceptable to ridiculous. If I bought machines now I would not have them serviced regularly and just pay for it as I need them serviced, its far most cost effective. Of course this if you have white or silver in your machines that may be another story.

  • This question must have been provided by a supplier. To the small business owner neither is any less important or more important than the other. We are competing in a free trade global market where successive Australian Governments have allowed overseas companies to access and trade within our Australian markets on a "FREE" one-sided trade basis thus making many Australian companies, due to all relevant labour, material, "acquisition" and running costs unable to compete with these foreign companies who operate with very little in the way of labour and material costs etc.....If small business is to survive in this industry we MUST be able to access from Australian suppliers/importers plant, equipment and consumables at competitive rates comparable to overseas markets, otherwise we as business owners may also have to look at bypassing Australian suppliers and buy direct from overseas companies to remain viable. (Steve Baker - Steve Baker Signs)

  • Silly question, both are important!

  • This is a very difficult question to answer. Hopefully when buying a new quality printer one could enjoy a low acquisition cost and low running costs. The resale value of a quality machine should be considered and this may justify the higher cost when the machine is disposed of. Some of the best machines do command a higher price when compared to the cheap Chinese products that come onto our market. "You pay peanuts and you get monkeys is a good expression that comes to mind. Surely with these cheap machines, the running costs would be higher as well - considering the waste prints, etc.

Buttered Toast

Murphy drops some buttered toast on the kitchen floor. It lands butter-side-up.

He looks at what he has done in astonishment, for he knows it's a law of nature that buttered toast always falls butter-down, therefore begorra !! it must be a miracle.
He rushes round to the presbytery to fetch the priest.
He tells the priest that he thinks a miracle has happened round at his flat. He won't say what it is but wants Fr Flannagan to see it with his own eyes.
He brings Fr Flannagan into the kitchen and asks him what he sees on the floor.
"Well," says the priest, "it's pretty obvious what we have here. Someone dropped some buttered toast, and then for some reason flipped it over so that the butter was on top."
"No, Father, I swear, I dropped it and it landed like that."
"Well," Fr Flannagan says, "it's certainly a natural law of the universe that dropped toast never falls butter side up.
But it's not for me to say it's a miracle. I'll report the matter to the bishop, and have him send people round, to interview you, investigate & take photos, etc."
An investigation of some rigour is conducted, not only by priests, bishops & a cardinal of the archdiocese, but by scientists sent from the Curia in Rome.
The final ruling is a negative, however. it reads:
"It was certainly an extraordinary event that occurred in Murphy's kitchen, quite outside the normal run of the phenomena.
Yet we have to be very cautious before ruling any happening miraculous, ruling out all possible natural explanations.
In this case we have declared no miracle. For it possibly resulted from Murphy's having buttered the toast on the wrong side."
