Seabag its good to know others in the business are on ATS. It takes a serious individual to be involved in fighting and survive for more then a year or two. Appreciate the understanding and what youve post here.
Running that press is harder then you think. It requires serious attention to detail and A LOT of knowledge.
Its not easy.
Its also the most rewarding thing ive ever done in my life and that doesnt mean externally and with money.
If it wasnt for fighting trust me id be on a much harder path. Fighting teaches you more about yourself then anything in the world.
I'm not saying that its not difficult work, what I'm getting at is, do you think its harder doing your one compartmentalized job, or say, managing the entire business?
The new digital presses for wrap don't require to much from the person and at volumes of 50,000 impressions or less is cheaper than flexo and quality is better. You might want to start looking into a new line of work in the years to come because it won't be long before flexo takes a back seat to digital printing. I purchase tons and tons of wrap for trading cards and I see flexo becoming a thing of the past in years down the road.

I dont want you to bleed your heart out for me. Its really simple dude... its like this.
This is the state of our economy. If i cant support myself working in a trade then everyone else out there working in a trade cant either. Its more then just me why dont you try looking at the bigger picture.
You have a really small minded approach to how you view what i said. If you inquired more about me personally youd probably understand the point you made against more clearly. If you read more of my responses you might even understand it more then that.
The gym membership and supplements are a shot at a better life. So before you get back in your ivory tower and pass more judgement why dont you simply inquire more for a more properly informed response.edit on 1-3-2013 by onequestion because: (no reason given)
I didnt say i was special im simply stating the fact that this day and age is not forgiving and that people make the choice to go to jail because its better.
