A Credit Worthy Company

A Credit Worthy Company

 

 

Seven good reasons to choose a credit worthy company with a good rating:

1) A company that runs itself well is more likely to look after you.
2) Staff morale is better in successful companies, so they will be more focused on ensuring your jobs are accurately managed and delivered on time.
3) A supplier that pays its bills promptly gets better service from the factories that are making your products.
4) A financially stable company is more likely to still be around when your order is due for delivery.
5) If proforma payment is made then your prepaid funds are safer and more likely to be set aside.
6) In the unlikely event that something goes wrong with an order, a solvent company will offer more concessions than one that is under stress.
7) You can build a relationship based on trust with the people in a stable company, because they will be there next time you need them and will have all your records in good order.

Order by 30th April to Hold Prices!

Order by 30th April to Hold Prices!

Sterling devaluation means that the call to order by a deadline will not be fake news this year. Notebook and diary prices at the factory have increased by 4%, however we are holding our current prices to the end of April,  so if you are thinking about placing an order, now is a good time to move on it.

Pictured here is a notebook we supplied recently with digital logo print to the cover and a one colour print to the pencil. Very smart indeed.

 

 

Full Colour Logos On Notebooks

Full Colour Logos On Notebooks

The factory is now set up to print full colour logos on notebooks, as you can see from this example for BP. The artwork can be a logo or a full colour design that extends to the whole of the front cover of the notebook.

Quotations are provided on a job by job basis, pricing at two levels - up to half the cover area, or up to the full cover area. As the print area increases the production is slower hence more expensive.

Good – Fast – Cheap

Good – Fast – Cheap

Off to the annual trade show next week, so I am reading the trade mags a bit more closely than is usual. Read a good article about service: that the customer can choose two from GOOD-FAST-CHEAP but not all three. The implication is that if you go for fast/cheap then what you receive may not be good.

We focus on good-fast, and then good-cheap. We always buy through uk factories however on large orders we can get a lower price by using their quality assured supply chain to source directly from the Far East. (Castelli and Moleskine notebooks are manufactured in Italy.) The lead time will often increase to two months or more. ie GOOD-CHEAP but not FAST.

This rule applies in most businesses. I was talking to the owner of a large construction business last week. "We always get four quotes and choose the cheapest on a like for like basis". "How is the wet weather affecting things?", I asked. "Well, we were expecting a delivery of steel structures last week and because of the bad weather they did not turn up".
