  1. Cheetah wrap & Fellers - Update

    "The World's Largest Wrap Supply Company" .... *snigger*
  2. Suggestions Setting up a large format printing facility in Huntington NY

    80%+ of new UK business ventures fail within the first 3 years... I'm not sure I get why you're off to start a business in the colonies when don't appear to have finished what you've started here? From what I know of our colonial cousins they love nothing more than a competitive punch up...
  3. HEALTH INSURANCE!........How I loathe you!

    Every time I attempt to read one of your mangled, teetering, linguistic constructs I swear I can hear my old English teacher gently weeping. Verbosity is not the precursor of supreme intellect.... although one suspects that your use of the former is to exactly subliminally project the latter...
  4. HEALTH INSURANCE!........How I loathe you!

    That's precisely the attitude that private health companies in America want you to have.... otherwise you might not gladly pay for the overpriced $hit they shovel your way. A high quality free-at-the-point-of-use healthcare system paid for via a small tax levy is EXACTLY what private insurers...
  5. HEALTH INSURANCE!........How I loathe you!

    Next time I whinge about the NHS.......
  6. Buying polycarbonate & acrylic sheets from china ocean freight save 60% vs usa

    If you are sell cheap Chinese plastic which turns out to be unsafe or faulty in anyway there is no where to hide.... liability is yours as the importer. We considered reselling Chinese raw materials about ten years ago... we concluded that the savings weren't large enough to warrant us...
  7. Gun threads

    I suggest you do some proper research of history before spouting such Hollywood b0llocks.. We fought the Axis powers in Europe, Africa and the Far East for two years without you.... the commonwealth countries were with us from the start. (respect to Canadians, South Africans and the ANZACS)...
  8. Screw you 3M.

    European sign shops are sniggering at you right now.... Here in Europe sign makers make up their OWN minds as to which vinyl brand to run with... you buy some, you try it, if you like it you run with it. Personally I prefer French made Hexis but I'll happilly use KMPF, Mactac, Neschen or any...
  9. What would cause this

    But.... KMPF don't recognise your method of panel fabrication as being acceptable because from a UK perspective it's not. Back lit sign panels like yours should be produced from quality cast Opal acrylic. The sizes you are working with dictate a minimum of 5mm acrylic thickness. All panels...
  10. UK Vendors, How are the olympics treating you.

    The London Olympics won't make money for anyone but the chose few.... big events like these are a festival of corporate greed and illicit back handers. We've done just one small Olympic related project despite registering on the LOCOG suppliers website back in 2007. Summer 2012 is the wettest...
  11. Anyone have tips on wrapping a steel drum?

    Sure. Print your design onto heavy duty banner material and "wrap" it around the barrel. Weld or VHB the banner back onto itself and voila. Gain the added benefit of being able to change adverts in seconds not the hours associated with vinyl removal and re application. If you want something...
  12. Ok you Apple Sheep !

    Back in the day EVERYONE who owned a 4B or Sprint was a Gerber snob... but at the time Gerber machinery was pretty good. I'd still rather have an antique Sprint or 4B over a brand new Chinese junker anyday. Sadly all the Gerber fanboys I knew back in the day have all gone broke... which just...
  13. The Power Bill

    Giving the Chinese designs & drawings is OK as long as you don't mind them using your ideas to built their "new" range of machines in about 4 months. A good way around the problem is to divide your drawings into three sub assemblies which are made by three different Chinese suppliers none of...
  14. Grimco has lost my business!!!

    I share you unease about this whole thread, it appears to me that legally written terms & conditions of trading are being replaced by digital temper tantrums and internet based blackmail.
  15. Grimco has lost my business!!!

    We check every delivery which arrives at the loading door..... it's not hard work, it doesn't take six months. At some point you do have to take responsibility for your own actions.
