    Quick Question - Click Charge

    We're running a Xerox Versant 2100. It is a special application that is way too complicated to get in to, but, here's the question: I know that a blank page does not generate a click charge.

    May sound strange, but.....

    I'm looking for an old PC that is still running Windows 98 or Windows 2000. I've got an old ink jet with embedded firmware that won't run on a computer with an operating system higher than Windows 2000. Speed or disk storage is not important.

    Paper - Let's Solve This Together

    Over the last couple of months, our paper prices have increased, on average, about 12% across the board (some higher, some lower). That may not sound like a lot, but, to shops that have their business (and prices) secured via annual contract with their customers, it is very ominous. You see, we...

    A Teaching Moment

    When putting together a mailing project, you MUST check every single component of the project. What does the outer envelope look like? Is it a window envelope? Does the address block of the main insert line up in the window? Does the piece have a business reply form or card for the recipient to...

    In Moderation

    Is it just me, or, does there seem to be an increase in spamming on this forum? I'm not that well-versed in forum operations, but, if it works like my blog site (done in word press), all comments are held in a "holding area" and are not published until I take a look at them (moderation). At...
