Facebook and Twitter Here We Come

Well, we knew that it had to happen eventually…  We finally committed to a Facebook page and Twitter account.  With some creative input from our “younger” staff we made our first real post on FB and sent out a couple of “Tweets”.  Those of you with more social media experience and fluency will have to excuse our late start – but better late than never.  We will make every effort to post and tweet regularly and if you “like us” and “follow us” we will no that our social media experience will be even richer !

Two Good Auctions in Spite of Soft Industry Conditions

Our two on-line printing equipment auctions last week went rather well in spite of rather sluggish industry conditions. Both sales were well-attended events with a variety of registered bidders ranging from local print shops to national and international equipment dealers. We had a strong showing of California-based businesses but also a good cross-section of buyers from around the country. The AB Dick (Ryobi) and Komori presses, Heidelberg die cutter and digital press and Polar Mohr and Challenge cutters along with the G&K and Stahl folders provided most of the higher value bidding action for the two sales. According to our sources the Heidelberg Die Cutter commanded strong bidding because many companies have to outsource this service. This die cutter was attractive because it offered a way to invest in a machine at a reasonable price in order to keep production in-house. The mini-pharma folder, due to its limited market availability, generated spirited bidding as it application for pharmaceutical uses is highly desirable. The Komori press stands on its solid installed base and reputation for long-lived dependability.

Thank you for all who participated in these sales and we trust that you made some good investments.
