This week's survey

Our last survey results...

What are your thoughts on the fact that more and more offset printers are installing wide format equipment. How do you think this will affect the dedicated wide format businesses?
 

  • It will force sign writers to go up a few levels with their graphic design -the number of signs you see out there that are made by people in our industry who don't even know how to use Photoshop properly is scary-lol. 

  • I think we all have to diversify and therefore we all need to consider breaking into new markets and revenue streams. This is inevitable in our industry and some will do it well and other will fail. (Emilio, Kwik Kopy Philip)

  • It will effect all in this industry, I feel existing wholesalers more than most and as we all know there are a multitude of online wholesalers already and primarily these offset printer companies are just that "wholesalers". It will be disappointing if they sell to the open market at wholesale rates as this i just damaging. There is nothing we can do about it just concentrate on your own business and what you do best.. (Steve Baker, Steve Baker Signs)

  • That will kill both businesses (Masoud, ET Signs)

  • We should all have predicted this move. Perhaps its a good thing in that we will have to look after our clients a bit better in order to keep them. Also we should be canvsing our services to the clients of the commercial printers since they will surely be trying to pinch our clients. Hope not, but they will certainly be wanting to sell wide format services to theirexisting clients - clients that maybe our clients as well.

  • Competition is healthy as long as they do not undercut us.

  • On behalf of the offset printing industry I would like to say that we look forward to utilising our inkjet and UV wide format equipment to best advantage. It is a sizeable investment both in machinery, media and staff. Conversely, the traditional sign industry is welcome to diversify into the offset printing business.

2014 Final Conference on Aging for youtube
2014 Final Conference on Aging for youtube - very funny

Smile!

A Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember ..
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.
'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'
'Sure.'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.
No, I can remember it.'
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to for-get it?'
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks. Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment and then says you forgot the toast!
