But seriously, why should you undervalue your time?

A recent newspaper headline read “Calculate ink costs before buying a printer.”
That’s the worst advice ever! Okay, we’re being dramatic; it’s not the worst advice ever but to a professional printer who has reasonable disdain for DIY printing jobs, it’s not great advice. We believe there are many other factors that should be calculated along […]
