Print that book for Cheap

If you ever wanted to be in the book printing and binding business take a look at  This organization has created a new website that has a list of all equipment needed and includes the vendor links.  The excellent website also features a video that teaches the printing and binding process.  The ink used by Spur Press is the new formula Aspen Ink from SME that was formulated specifically for the HP Office Jet ProX printers and AIO devices that print up to 70 pages per minute.

Tim Buchanan, CEO of Spur Press dedicated the site to those who want to put together and use the latest technology to print books on demand. Our primary focus is for mission and church organizations.  We are freely sharing what we know and invite others to do the same. This was a project that started with just an idea that we could create a robust print on demand system that would cost under $10,000 USD as a commercial venture.  When we finished, we realized that anyone could go on Amazon and order the components they needed for under $6,000 USD.  We decided that this was too important and could have such an incredible impact that we could not keep it to ourselves. Therefore we are giving away everything we know and look forward to people sharing their knowledge, so together we can set publishing free all over the world and in every language.
Inkjet Printers and AIO A Fit for Business

According to a recent release and full report by InfoTrends, sales of business inkjet printers and multifunctional peripherals (MFPs) have surpassed laser devices in the U.S. as the leading technology by unit shipment volume. In fact, InfoTrends estimates that business inkjet will represent 56% of all devices by 2016, compared to 44% for laser. For many years, the prevailing sentiment among many in the industry was that customers believe laser devices are most appropriate for workgroup office use, whereas inkjet technology is best suited to the home and small business environments. This has been further reinforced by myriad news reports emphasizing the negative aspects of inkjet printers - particularly when it comes to running costs and ink pricing. Against this backdrop, vendor interest in promoting business inkjet product offerings has advanced. As a result, vendors such as Brother, HP, Memjet, and Xerox have developed business inkjet devices with improved speed and capability that are clearly designed for workgroups within business environments. It is the purpose of this primary research document to aid vendors with the second part of this process-the critical sales and marketing decisions in the U.S. market.

R-JetTek introduces new OCP Inks and a new Refill Kit for HP 950/951 and 932/933 Cartridges.

R-JetTek, a Colorado based Company, has announced the release of new pigment OCP inks, BKP280 and CP/MP/YP280 for the 950/951 series cartridges from HP. In addition, R-JetTek has developed a refill kit, #5000SK, for these cartridges that is affordable and easy to use. A newly designed Cannula Needle is included in the kit. This needle ejects ink from ports on the sides of the needle instead of the tip, which prevents the needle from forming a seal against the internal ball plug inside the exit port of these cartridges. The refill kit, along with the inks, is currently available from R-JetTek.
