  1. It's swings and roundabouts with suppliers. If you spend enough you get a better service. Have to say TD and Goodwill have been superb from day 1 and all issues addressed asap. Only downside is that i know TD have laid off staff due to the situation we are in. Some slight problems with Glenway but they are usually quite good. They are under going some big changes and one new guy has already left. Only argument would be that they don't offer the free delivery a week like the others and did away with the free van delivery. And on the flipside to others I've been forced online to keep going and have been as busy as I normally am for the last 2 months.
  2. Totally agree, has been great with my machines when needed. Always good value aswell.
  3. Have just done a quick search of my local council and there is an online form to fill in for business grants. Check yours to find out.
  4. It's all up in the air. Self-employed are most at risk, I have lost 99% of my business (mainly trophies and engraving to sports clubs and schools) but am eligible for the small business grant that will keep me open hopefully for the next 3 months. But as said, supermarkets are employing, aid is there for sick pay for self employed, and most will feel the pinch. We just need the population to stay at home and minimise the length of time this runs for. Tough times for all. Good Luck
  5. Hi Steve, Hope the battle was a success for you. Could try Marino who is freelance support for Gravograph machines and always resonable. Although a trip up to the far north might be pricey!
  6. If you are just starting out then i would go down the second hand route and see how it goes. As for machines you get what you pay for. Gravograph and Trotec cost more but are superb machines and the software is also very good. I have 3 gravograph machines (2 rotary and one laser) and touch wood they have been excellent value for money.
  7. Company called reliable stamping http://www.reliable-stampings.co.uk/ Give them a ring or email what you need
  8. Agree, not a fan either, but cheaper and quicker than plates and everyone wants as cheap as they can get these days. I prefer plates but use them for free engraving on large orders and have had no complaints so far. Also good for doing medal backs/centres. Kwiktapes have a printer and plates. As far as i know they supply most of the main suppliers with their stock. Cheaper to go direct with them if its going to be regular. Feel free to pm if need any more info.
  9. You need to contact either Gravograph or Marino and they will help you
  10. Centreprint http://www.centreprint.org/
  11. can try this for free https://convertio.co/plt-converter/
  12. Should be sorted now, i have loads. Swatkins prices are ridiculous though...
