CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonDo “bargain” (cheap) printers save you money? Rarely. Consumers and businesses are sold printers and buy on price, without understanding a printer’s actual cost-per-page (CPP).

Office supply stores, warehouse clubs (limited selection / knowledge) and general merchandise big chain stores (limited selection / knowledge), have printers “on special” for $60 or $70 with $40, $50+ in savings from “regular pricing”. Buyer beware. The least expensive printers have higher CPP. You’ll spend more money for cartridges with a high CPP.

Fully costed CPP costs range as follows: inkjet from $0.05 - $0.30+, black laser from $0.01 to $0.05, color laser from $0.06 to $0.25.

Spending $30 or $40 more on a better inkjet model, or $100 for a laser printer now, saves hundreds (or thousands) of dollars over time, because CPP costs are significantly lower. There are several superior performing and low CPP inkjet printers currently available for about $100. Why save $40 or $50 for an inferior printer?

And remember if you’re interested in factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges, buying the newest printer, which replaced a virtually identical model, means only OEM cartridges are available for a year or more, so you can’t reduce further your CPP for quite a while, with aftermarket cartridges.

How we approach customers’ printer purchases: know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by our store to learn how to get the most value for your money.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonSummer is a popular time to replace your home’s roof. If a metal roof is on your list of roofing options, consider these pros and cons.

Pros of metal roofing:

Metal roofing is durable. A metal roof should last as long as your house, and will survive windstorms, snow and rain water. It’s also resistant to mildew, fire, insect infestation and rot.

Most metal roofs are noncombustible, earning them a Class A fire rating. Though warranties, many companies guarantee their metal roofing product to last between 20 and 50 years.

It’s lightweight. Metal roofing runs from 1 to 1.5 pounds per sq. ft. compared to 7.5 to 10 pounds per sq. ft. for concrete tile. Metal roofing may be applied directly on top of existing roof materials on battens.

Disadvantages of metal roofing:

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian JarvisIt’s expensive. The cost of a metal roof ranges between $150 and $600 per 100 square feet; but you save on maintenance expenses in the future.

Accessibility. It can be difficult to walk on a metal roof in wet weather and when moss or algae have grown on it. And, cleaning off storm debris can be challenging.

Before you decide on the type of roof for your house, be sure you consider your home’s style and the area you live in.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenWhile savoring a glass of wine at one of my favorite Portland restaurants, I overheard this conversation:

"Oh, is that a new necklace? I love it!"

"Yes, Bill gave it to me for our anniversary. Ten years, can you believe that? He said he wanted me to know that he couldn't imagine being married to anyone else."

Attention, all men out there! Women love it when you give them jewelry.

There’s just nothing like your significant other selecting something with only you in mind. Giving jewelry for a special day or event transforms the piece from a thing to a story.

Women especially love telling the story of how their husband or boyfriend gave them that special piece of jewelry.

And, what’s more: Getting her a piece she really likes. That’s why we keep 'Wish Lists' for our customers. Men love shopping here; yet, they are sometimes clueless on what to buy. But when we know their wife, we point them in the right direction.

And, ladies, make sure we get to know you and you create those wish lists for us! That way, when men come into our store, we can give them hints and point them in the right direction. Men want that special gift they select to be loved and worn.

And, for the story to be told.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsWhether you’re looking to raise capital, limit your personal liability or create a business that stands the test of time, there’s no better choice than filing articles of incorporation to form a corporation. Here are five steps to address first.

Appoint directors. Every corporation needs a board of directors to be considered legally valid, and their names should be included on the incorporation documents. Your board will have enormous influence over the future of your company, so choose wisely.

Issue stock. Every corporation must have shareholders. This means authorized (but unsold) stock must be listed in the articles of incorporation, and a formal resolution must be passed approving their sale.

Register an EIN. A Employer Identification Number (EIN) is like your business’s social security number. You’ll need it to file taxes, open a corporate bank account and (most importantly) get paid. The IRS makes it easy to obtain an EIN on their website.

Craft a shareholders’ agreement. Though not technically required, a shareholders’ agreement prevents co-founders from suddenly selling their shares to an outside interest, while also establishing contingencies if a founder loses control of their stock due to divorce or bankruptcy.

Hire a corporate lawyer. You need an experienced business attorney to draft your articles of incorporation. They will ensure your business is protected and ready to succeed.

KUHNHAUSEN'S FURNITURE SHOWCASE - Shelley Kuhnhausen HowardWho says a space-saving storage bed has to put function before style?

That’s certainly not the case with Whittier Woods’ Mantel Storage Bed—available now at Kuhnhausen’s Furniture Showcase!

What I like about the Mantel bed is how it blends “antique” design principles with modern aesthetics, producing a truly original piece of art.

Built out of American alder hardwoods, the raised panels and imposing wood finish are straight out of the 18th century. But because this is a Whittier product, the elegant design doesn’t impede 21st century functionality. The WHITTIER WOOD - The McKenzie Collection presents an atmosphere of style and elegance.McKenzie Mantel Bed comes with six capacious drawers, each with ball bearing drawer slides. The use of strong, square lines and lack of overt ornamentation on the wood panels make the McKenzie collection indubitably modern, without sacrificing that heirloom style.

Whittier Wood uses English dovetail drawer construction as well as mortise and tenon joinery for added strength and stability. The McKenzie collection is available in glazed antique cherry and caffè finish.

And for the nature lovers out there, you can rest easy knowing that Whittier Wood products are certified by the international Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.

So what are you waiting for? Stop and shop at Kuhnhausen’s Furniture Showcase today!

ELMER'S FLAG & BANNER, KITES TOO! - David AnchelIf you’ve ever seen a U.S. soldier in full uniform, you may have wondered why the flag patch on their right shoulder is affixed “backwards.”

In other words, why is the star field on the right-hand corner of the flag, rather than the left?

The answer has everything to do with the rectangular subset of the American flag that has 50 white stars and blue backing. It’s typically called the “union” or canton.

According to the flag code, when worn on either the left or right shoulder, the American flag patch should face forward (to the observer’s right). Per the Department of Defense, this “gives the effect of the flag flying in the breeze as the wearer moves forward.”

If that still doesn’t make sense, imagine a normal standard bearer marching forward while carrying the American flag. The star field would come first, followed by the red and white bars. Anything else would look absurd.

Bonus flag trivia: Can tearing an American flag ever be done respectfully? Consider the story of Robert E. Peary, the first person to reach the geographic North Pole. Like any good explorer, Peary planted a U.S. flag there.

But Peary actually made several attempts to reach the North Pole, and tore off scraps of the flag at each of his successive “farthest norths.” Thus, we remember Peary as the only man in history to be honored for ripping up an American flag.

THE PORTLAND CLINIC  - Dr. Ryan A. Gorger, O.D.During this time of year, we often get out and about more frequently with the wonderful summer weather. With just a little fore "sight" and preparation, you can reduce the potential of harming your eyes.

Wearing protective eyewear. With the Fourth of July coming up, it is just as important to protect your eyes from fireworks! I routinely see eye injuries from fireworks that can have potentially sight-threatening complications. Be sure to follow the firework manufacturer's recommendations and wear safety eyewear when igniting any fireworks. If you are unsure of the proper safety eyewear for the activity, ask your eye doctor for recommendations.

Sun protection. Just as you would protect your skin from the damaging ultraviolet rays from the sun that can cause a sunburn, you should protect your eyes as well. It is important to wear sunglasses that block 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B light rays. This will help protect you from getting a sunburn on your eyes. It can also help to prevent early development of cataracts and macular degeneration.

Annual eye exams. Having a yearly eye exam is the best way to make sure your vision and eye health is doing well. There are many eye diseases that do not necessarily have any symptoms until permanent damage is done. Early identification and intervention is the key to managing any disease and this is just as true with our eyes.

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Dr. Michael DavisA popular method of pain control for labor is an epidural. This method is always elective, and not for everyone. However, in our patient population, just over 90 percent of our patients will have an epidural during labor.

Preparing for an epidural involves an interview with an anesthesia professional: either an anesthesiologist or a certified nurse anesthetist. The interview will include a review of your personal health information, the risks and benefits of the procedure, alternatives and answer your questions about the procedure.

Your anesthesia provider will give you an injection of lidocaine in the skin of the back. While this feels like a bee sting at first, the rest of the procedure is relatively pain free. Most patients get a button to control extra doses of the medicine as needed during labor.

The overall goal of the epidural is to differentially numb the type of nerves that carry temperature and pain messages to the brain. Ideally, the nerves that carry light touch, position and movement messages are NOT affected, or affected minimally.

Because the type of medication that is used is placed in a tiny space around the spinal column, there is very little absorption of the medication into the systemic circulation, and therefore the baby. As a result, the epidural can be used from active labor through the delivery and any needed repair after delivery.

Look for the next article: Surprising facts about epidurals.

LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanThey may be worth every penny, but the cost of a senior living community can quickly add up. Thankfully, two government programs are designed to provide health and medical services to all citizens, regardless of income level.

Read on for the key differences between Medicare and Medicaid.

Medicare

Similar to private health insurance, Medicare is great for reducing or eliminating the cost of certain prescription medications, doctor appointments and hospitalizations. After hospitalization, Medicare will usually pay for a skilled nursing for the purpose of rehabilitation, and often physical and/or occupational therapy and home health nurses to visit you at home, but only for a limited time.

Unfortunately, Medicare is intended only for short-term care, and generally does not pay for extended periods of treatment, including independent, assisted living, adult care homes or memory care communities.

Medicaid

Unlike Medicare, Medicaid can and regularly does pay for long-term senior living care, though certain requirements apply. In general, Medicaid recipients must show that they are low income, facing medical expenses that exceed their income and that they have already spent their virtually all of their savings and assets. There is a five year “look-back” period to prevent people from gifting all of their money away to be able to qualify for Medicaid.

At this point, Medicaid benefits can pay for long-term care, as well as alternatives like in-home care or assisted living. Not every senior community has a contract with Medicaid, so it’s important to know what your financial situation is, as well as if the community has the contract, if you anticipate the need.

Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonAny inkjet printer with four or more “tank” ink cartridges has a separate printhead. Cartridges lock into the printer’s carriage feeding ink to the printhead.

This differs from the two-cartridge system; a black and a tri-color cartridge, where the printhead is a physical component of each cartridge.

Guess what? Tank-style printheads clog up. Lots of use, little use or general use. They clog up.

So, all Brother, Epson, Canon and HP printers with four or more cartridges have a printhead which needs to be cleaned periodically.

At Cartridge Network’s store we ask customers purchasing tank-style cartridges if they clean their printer’s printheads. Maybe 15 percent say they do. Ten percent know about it but don’t and 75 percent look at us as if we’re nuts.

We go over a handout with short instructions for each type of printer and give it to them. Come in or call us for a copy.

One can clean the printhead directly from the printer or from one’s computer. A test page is the first step indicating if all the nozzles are printing correctly or clogged. If clogged, do a “deep clean.” If they are severely clogged, you may have to repeat the process many times.

If they become too clogged you will be looking for a new printer. Really? We recycle several printers daily which are old or have clogged printheads. We probably have a good new printer waiting for you.

Why do we go to these lengths explaining printhead clearing? Because so many people come in with print quality samples or their actual printers. Most are astonished by the process. So easy. Once they’re aware and clean periodically, everyone’s life is easier.

Yes, you will use a little ink, but doing so sure beats having a poor print when you are actually trying to print something.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.” We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.
