This means you need to be more attentive to the amount of supplies you have on hand. Relying solely on automatic shipments of toner, which is the only supply item that’s monitored for automatic shipment, will likely mean that you will be without your needed supplies as supply chains are still disrupted.

Churches: 3 Reasons Why You Should Be Doing Your Own Printing

Submitted by Mary Shamburger on Wed, 09/08/2021 - 09:11

If you’ve ever been a member of or involved with a church, you know they’re busy all year long. There are ceremonies to be held, different classes throughout the week, and special group get-togethers as well. Sometimes there are even camps and retreats. At the majority, if not all these events, there’s almost always something handed out for everyone to read or study along with. 

Being busy all year long means that churches have a lot of things to focus on that don’t involve printing, so they usually turn to outsourcing their print jobs to an offsite print vendor or local print shops, which can become unreliable, and expensive.
