Where oh where????

Where have I been? Geez, I can't believe I haven't posted in so long. I guess I've been pretty busy.

Right now, I'm finishing up a few orders and then I absolutely must re-arrange my desk top. Wouldn't you know it, but I was forced to go out and buy a new printer. I didn't want to get a new printer. I wasn't 100% happy with the old one, but these are the times of "making do" and "getting along" with what you have.

When I went into the office store (for the 3rd time), this particular salesperson told me my old all-in-one is about 6-7 years old. What??? Where did the time go? I am not one to throw away good for the joy of purchasing all the latest, greatest new goodies. I try to get every bit of mileage I can from what I have. What about you??? Are you a frequent upgrader?

Well, anyway, I bought one printer and brought it home to my studio and it just wasn't doing the job. It was very clunky sounding - even tho it printed better quality than my old printer.
Now.........I am not going to name names (brands, that is) but back it went to the store.

It interests me how you can go to one store three times and get different salespeople who tell you different things. Why didn't I research on the net? - I did - yup - but that just resulted in confusion too. Anyway, I'm making this into a longgggg story, I know. In the end, I bought another printer and .............drumroll...............I love it! I have been upgrading my materials for several months and now have upgraded my printing.

Bottom line (thank goodness, right?) .........better quality for my customers. Yay!

Well............til next time...........


  1. Hi Carol,

    I'm not one who enjoys keep upgrading my stuff too. I had my mobile phone for close to 6 yrs before it did became rather neccessary to upgrade it. I used my digital camera for 9 yrs too, before I got a new one. My current printer is a free gift with purchase, which is about 3 yrs old now. Btw, I love your personalized ribbons....and am probably going to order some!

  2. Don't talk to me about printers my last one lasted a year and was useless from day one, happy with this latest all in one but am sure they do not make them to last. So please you are happy with your latest one.

  3. HI CArol,
    I too have printer stories to tell, but at last after several clunkers, I found one I am very happy with. It is quiet and trouble free. Glad you found one you are happy with. It certainly makes a difference.

  4. Hi Carol,
    I love my all in one, I hope it last for a few more years. It keeps telling me it needs black ink when it doesn't. I think this is a first sign.....but hopefully not. A good Printer is so important to have but a hefty cost that I would rather spend the money on elsewhere. Have a great week Carol!

  5. Hi Carol! Great post about your printer. I am always one who asks "why don't they make everything user friendly?" I guess that is what marketing and advertising is all about. I am glad you have a happily ever after story.
