These days you can’t turn around without running into an option to refill your ink cartridge at a drug store or buy a cheap copy-cat cartridge likely made overseas. Who cares as long as you are saving money by avoiding the pricey OEM cartridge? You should care.

In an industry where it is hard to stand out, Innovera has managed in ways other brands don’t even think about:

  • Support: Innovera products are fully supported by our domestic team who are available via phone or e-mail to help you install a cartridge, cross-reference the printer or OEM cartridge and handle any product issues. Innovera Support will help dealers look like rock stars or talk directly to an end user. You know when you buy an Innovera cartridge, you are protected.
  • Peace of Mind through Indemnification: Those cheap, sometimes charmingly cheap compatibles out there are usually made overseas. For some products that is ok, for imaging supplies there are a lot of laws out there like the First Sale Doctrine that go after manufacturers and resellers of these brands because they infringe on OEM patents. Innovera does not infringe. Innovera is made from OEM cartridges that have been used once and remanufactured to exceed OEM standards using our own processes that do not breach OEM intellectual property. This process turns out a quality product for its users.

There are a lot of options out there but Innovera is your best bet.

Function 1: A magnetic binder clip. Function 2: A business card holder. Function 3: A pen holder.

It is important to choose your giveaways wisely when you’re preparing for trade shows or when you are looking to leave something more than just your business card behind.  I came across this item that serves its purpose on many levels, and I like it so much that I feel compelled to share.  First, it is an imprint-ready magnetic binder clip.  They are small and handy.  Most people use and love binder clips, so it’s an almost guarantee that it will make it back to someone’s home or office.  The product includes an insert for your business card as well as a holder for a pen.  These features set this product apart from your ordinary binder clip, and make this a great self-promo item.  Give us a call and start handing yours out at the next event!

On Thursday, October 25th the McShane’s Zombies attended the Porter County Chamber Coalition Network Night for a successful networking event. This is an event that McShane’s looks forward to every year. The Halloween themed event encourages the vendors to have fun with their themes. This year the McShane’s team came dressed as zombies with some help from the make-up talents of Shirley’s Merle Norman on Lafayette in Valparaiso. It is a great opportunity to have fun while gaining exposure for the business. Next year’s event will take place on October 17, 2013…the theme planning is underway!

Romp and Roll

The Survivor Walk around the football field kicked off Cancer Resource Centre’s Romp and Roll.

On Sunday, October 7th, McShane’s supported Team Mad About Mindy at Cancer Resource Centre’s Annual Romp and Roll event. A group of loyal supporters gathered, bundled up, and walked to honor those who have survived and to remember those who lost their battle to the vicious disease.  We will continue to support this cause as a tribute to everyone whose lives have been affected by cancer.  Thank you to those who came out for the event!
