This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago for the Third Week of May 2015

 

Saturday morning here in Jersey.  Looks like it's going to be a nice day while the we are still in lock down. I'm seeing more cars than every on the highway leading to Sandy Hook, thus the order of stay home is not being heeded by the regular people of NJ.  Which is a good thing because people need to be living their lives as they want and not by what the government mandates.

Enjoy our marvelous threads from five years ago this week!

You also can delete pages, move pages, turn pages right side up with your finger. This can all be done before you copy, scan or fax.
