    ACM cutting for small signs

    You can use basically any router from Home Depot to cut ACM. I think our guys use a 6mm upcut bit. You could build a jig or buy a table for it. It won't be computer controlled, but you should be in the couple hundred bucks range. And it will be way safer than scoring ACM by hand. Yikes!

    Coca-Cola to Launch Paper Bottles

    Learned that lesson with scrap metal here. We sort it for them now because they leave a mess otherwise. I'm all for the initiative, but part of that is cleaning up after yourself too.

    Delivery charges (FedEx)

    We've had them update addresses and deliver to businesses that have moved. I don't know if that would apply to a residential address tho.

    Delivery charges (FedEx)

    We also run lists through Cass and NCOA but still get lots of correction charges from both UPS and FedEx. Some of them seem legit. Some are ridiculously minor. Some are flat out incorrect. All cost $18 and we aren't gonna get it back unless we want to spend at least $50 worth of time arguing...

    LA Times is wobbling

    If you have to ask how much money they lose every year, you can't afford it.

    Thermography Printing & Slow Dry Ink Question

    Kodak Nexpress raised clear toner can be made to look a lot like thermography. We do a handful of business cards that way.

    Introducing Your Team

    Yeah, but shouldn't he be telling the customer about their environmental, health and safety protocols plus additional Covid-19 precautions first?

    The Celebration

    I've never understood why people don't put QR codes on their cards. Isn't the goal to get me to save your information? The odds of that are much better if I don't have to tell the reader app there isn't an "S" in your phone number.

    Printing Industry Standards/Dealer Ethics/Disclosures

    I've purchased a number of machines that were used as demonstration models at shows from a variety of vendors. Each and every time I was told up front and received a discount off the price of a new machine. Sometimes the warranty was extended to meet or exceed the warranty on a new machine...

    Trump pumps Kodak

    It looks like we'll find out. SEC is going to investigate. I think the 1.75 million shares were just options. I don't think that would show up in trade volume.

    Trump pumps Kodak

    Would you say the tall bar is roughly 20x taller than the previous shorter bar? If so, the graph is accurate - according to the CNBC article you posted anyway: "On Monday, prior to the announcement, 1,645,719 shares traded hands in the stock, far surpassing Friday’s 74,893 trades, and Thursday’s...

    Kodak is moving into pharmaceutical manufacturing, but "remain 100% committed to print and will continue to invest in ground-breaking innovations, especially in digital print. Print will be an important revenue source as the new pharmaceutical business gets up to speed.” ~Kodak executive...

    So How many prepress technicians got laid off because of Covid-19

    That is a horrible way to treat employees, and most employers don't act that way. But employment at will allows employers to hire people without fear of a long term performance on the employee's part. We all know how many awful teachers are in our public school system, protected by tenure...

    So How many prepress technicians got laid off because of Covid-19

    This is a sad example of how socialist policies designed to protect the worker actually do the exact opposite in practice. The government is essentially forcing an employer to fire an employee for fear of future obligations to that person. Sorry this has happened to you.
