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.)  
How do wide format margins compare to other parts of your business?

Our last week's survey results...

Has any other company had problems with lamination lifting, waving or creasing? external 2-3 years.... and the solution? 

  • Long Answer: Test every product/application first. Research & Development on a "3yr" product can take 3yrs to figure out its reliable, unless you have a source you can trust (tip for reps). We keep records on production method used & dates installed. Most rep's know their product up to the sale & application. But, sadly, they usually know nothing about product performance in its completed actual use. Short Answer: stop buying cheap or mismatched products. "3yr product" (measured in Europe) = "1yr product" when translated into 'Australian'!
  • Buy cheap - Prepare to weep.
  • No, never had this problem.
(As a publishing practice to protect ourselves from any potential liability, company and individual names that are referred to negatively in any of these comments are removed.
In addition we reserve the right to remove comments that are blatant advertising for one product or company)

An Irish priest tells his friend the rabbi that he has a perfect way of eating for free in restaurants: I go in after 9 o'clock in the evening, eat several courses slowly, linger over coffee, port and a cigar. Come 2 o'clock, as they are clearing away, I just keep sitting there until eventually a waiter comes up and asks me to pay. I tell him - I've already paid your colleague who has left. Because I am a man of the cloth, they just accept what I say.
The rabbi says: It's a great idea. Let's try it together this evening.
They go to a restaurant and come 2 o'clock, they are still sitting there after a hearty meal. Sure enough, a waiter comes along and asks them to pay.
The priest says: I've already paid your colleague who has left.
The rabbi adds: And we are waiting for the change.
