- Hi Barbara
My take on it is that folks aren't switching to photopolymer, they are
starting with photopolymer. Not exactly the best approach
typographically, in terms of something or other, whatever, doesn't
really matter, that is just the way it is.
Yeah, lots of stuff is available at pretty good prices now. Last
couple of weeks I have been getting calls from suppliers offering up
inventory at half price, their cost. This isn't normal but it is good
tax planning. Write it off this year as the write off won't do you
much good next year, especially if next year is as uncertain as it
seems. So, naturally, I''m buying.
