    Patience... Wait til the end of the month. It took a FEW months with my sales rep calling me, before he made that deal (18.7K). After the initial call...I never called him. The bidding started in the mid 20K's with the Prism jet, and they never mentioned the "Valuejet", until I read...

    Couldn't agree with you more, Buddy. Very pleased with our first Digital printer. (Valuejet) Just can't wait to use it more often. We're a new business and things are slow. But that's alright...because we're in the learning phase anyways...so a small job here and there is fine. Printed my...
