    Remember Everett, from "O Brother, Where Art Thou"? I feel that. "Damn, we're
    in a tight spot". Got to make a decision. Spend at least a few grand to fix old
    Falcon Outdoor, or go in debt for a new printer. I can get a new 48 Value Jet
    for 10 grand. One other option, quit printing. Damn, we're in a tight spot!

    Farm out some prints and get the new printer when you can.
    I an sure some Signs 101 members will give you wholesale prices.
    Even if you did that short term and saved half up that would be an easier note to handle.

    Can't really give you any advice on your predicament, but that movie was the first thing that came to mind when I read the thread title. Awesome film, I still jam out to the sound track from time to time.

    If you can get by with subbing, that is what I would do for now and save for your new printer in the meanwhile. The industry is in flux, new latex models are coming on line, solvent prices are dropping and saving for a new printer might put you in a really good spot in 1-2 years.
     
  8. with interest rates now, it's almost free money.

    play the 0% credit card game and pay very little interest. I paid off my house in 6 years by flopping large balances on 0% interest credit cards until it was paid off. I'm doing the same on my shop building. look for credit card offers that have little or no transfer fee and your off to the races....

    Save the cash, or like ddarlak said play the 0% card game. After the 12 months just transfer it to another card. I bought a semi trailer doing this, paid it off in 6 months but I didn't tie up and of my cash.

    BTW, we thought you were a toad....
