How high a priority is finding new wide format print markets?

Our last week's survey results...

How often have you been approached or fallen prey to credit card scams? 

  • All the time. Being signsonline I attract those rock apes.
    However I solved that problem 10 years ago. NO CC
    Pay into my a/c, when funds clear you get the sign. ...simples
  • Never

  • I get a least one a month but they in waves, can be as many as 5 per day. Have not been taken by one yet, they are getting more sophisticated, as are the .zip emails. We need to be on constant look out. I cant see why the ISPs cant take some responsibility.

  • Once 7 years ago for 250,000 "US letter" sized pamphlets with a CC number to be delivered in Australia. Was advised by my bank that is was a stolen US CC number, and last week asking whether we did flyers and embroidered T-Shirts. Wanted to give me $2,000 for me to "pass on" to the T-Shirt embroider for 3 shirts. Told him to get another embroider and another printer. Both scams cam via hotmail accounts.

  • Not sure about credit cards scams but plenty of other scams via email which presumably would end with a request for cc details. Sick bastards!!

Smile: It's only Monday!

A three-year old walks over to a pregnant lady while waiting with his mother in a doctor's surgery.

"Why is your stomach so big?" - he asks.
"Im having a baby." - she replies.
"Is the baby in your stomach?" - he asks, with his big eyes.
"Yes, it is." - she says.

"Is it a good baby?" - he asks, with a puzzled look.
"Oh, yes. A really good baby." - the lady replies.

Shocked and surprised, he asks: "Then why did you eat him?"
