Some of them have bought expensive inkjet machines for printing a small amount of prints; they have buy envelopes, ink cartridges, paper, pay the bank, and spent their time printing in that way; they prefer to do that, instead of sending their files to us for printing in photo paper ( chemical, of course) in a professional way. Can´t understand that. In this athmosphere, although Kodak have increased prices, we can´t transfer increase to our clients. I don´t know that´s happening in other areas.
