Driving down the price

What a strange week!!
I use Mactac JT5829PM through my Soljet III for the majority of my print, this week one of my suppliers (not my usual) phoned me up and slashed my costs by £28.00 per roll. I used to pay around £113.00 for 1360mm at 50 metres, not now!!!
I then had a rep round from another supplier who offered me even better deals on digital media, i have a sample to try and if its any good i'll be opening an account with them. He also offered me the ACM product that is similar to dibond at a very good price.
I phoned my normal supplier and told him that i had been offered it at £29 per sheet, 8x4, 3mm alubond product. He slashed his to £25 per sheet.
Oh yeah, the other supplier then offered me Forex at less than £19 per sheet for an 8x4, my normal supplier then beat this.
I nearly fell off my chair, i have just about halved my costs on all my products this week!!

Well...just "name 'n' praise" your new found best suppliers. It's totally within the 'rules'!

And it may help a few others in their quest for better prices for the same goods.

I have had similar prices to that quoted by Blackburns metals on the alupanel. Can`t remember exactly but was in the 20`s and not the 30`s.
