Buying Equipment

Everytime I turn around I am having to buy new equipment. We buy at least one new computer a month, that is not too bad. But every other year we need to buy bigger and better manufacturing equipment to keep up with our changing industry. All of the printing industry is like this. Technology just keeps getting better and better. It is a shame that people have gotten too expensive to use. It is better to buy a $250,000 machine that will last only about 7 years than to hire 5 employees. That just seems askew.

To figure out what equipment best suits our needs I have to visit tradeshows, where all the equipment is on display. This part I like because I am a visitor (not working a booth) at these shows and they are in great venues like Las Vegas. Where it is warm and they have great food and nice hotel rooms.
