Fridge Magnets

Hi All,
Can anyone help?
At the moment we are buying in fridge magnets to sell on to our clients, does anyone know of a good printer/cutter that could produce quantities of these at a reasonable price.

Two words come to mind...

I'll send a neat little gift to the first uksignboards member who guesses them and another to the first [insert the two words here] owner who offers to supply Ian with fridge magnets produced on a [insert the two words here] at a decent wholesale price.

Precisely Phil!

I honestly don't mean to be annoying about it...and I found that I've been saying it too much in response to alot of recent posts.

Please e-mail me your delivery address and I'll forward your prize.

(...and don't worry, I'm not planning to add you to our mailing list!)

Any takers for prize number two?

:lol:

Now that WOULD be a "neat little prize"...but my budget for "promotions" is a bit to small for that!

...I'm about to order some "neat little" promotional items for use in a trade shows, open houses and the like. When we receive our orders, I'll send a "care package" to the address you provided.

That's the spirit Lorraine!

Like the Letterheads movement, there does seem to be strong desire to help one another out at UKSB...certainly in terms of sharing advice and experience. The buying group thing seems to be working for its participants. It strikes me that the combination of specialties and design/production capabilities of UKSB members as a whole is another resource that could be harnessed by members to a greater degree...or is there more trade going on within the network than meets the eye?

there is a section especially for quotes which only the UKSG and goldmembers can see. But there's still not that much going on in it

Mille,

If you're looking for something to do your fridge magnets go for a Roland colourcamm PC-12. Great little machines. They print as large as the Gerber Edge and they do 600dpi no problem. you don't have to look into buying a new cutter to contour cut as it's all built in. Don't need to re-load cartridges as it can fit 6 (or 7) cartriges in at once. just hit that print button and off you go! They are only £2999 retail but I've seen them for £2700..

I agree with Gav!!

Anyone considering any new piece of kit should look at competitive systems in order to be able to ensure themselves that they're making an informed decision....one that is right for their business.

In the grand scheme of things, what you pay "up front" for the equipment is less important than the profit that you can generate with it. Pay close attention to the factors that are likely to affect your return on investment -- such as production costs vs. market pricing for finished product, reliability, cost of ownership, etc.

You generally don't get what you don't pay for.

Ian (Millie)
From your profile I see that you're not that far from me - why don't you pop around and I'll show you some samples of output from the colorcamm. It would be nice to meet with you anyway given that we both live less than a mile from each other :D
