Registration prize draw - the goodies!!!!

WOW! Here we have the list of prizes we have to give away on the 15th November to fifteen lucky people! As you know from the email, you don't have to purchase anything to be in with a chance. Because everyone is having to reregister (and we know its a pain!) we wanted to offer something that would make it more bearable for you! So with no further ado lets have a look at the goodies!! First up is the big one, a HP LAPTOP! It is a HP G62-a22SA laptop PC. The spec is really quite impressive, it features: Windows 7, Intel Pentium Processor P6000, 3GB memory, 250 GB hard drive, 15.6" HD Brighview LED screen, wireless networking, Bluetooth and a webcam. Value is £399, we have 1 to give away!

Next up a Brother QL-570 Labeller. This is a really amazing labeller. It supports barcode printing, has an automatic cutter, prints 68 standard labels per minute, there are different label widths available and it is SO easy to change the reels. I speak from experience, we have one in our office and it has blown me away (and I am not so easy to impress!) We even use it for printing shelf edge labels over a meter long! Value is £109, we have 1 to give away.

Russell Hobbs Caffe Torino Espresso. This is a 15 bar pump pressure espresso maker. It has a 1.1 litre capacity, with removable water tank, detachable drip tray and a steam nozzle (for frothing and warming milk for cappuccino). There are also two espresso cups provided! I like this machine, you can get a good strong cup of coffee and you can use the milk cold straight out of the fridge and still get a good froth! Value is £79.99, we have 2 to give away. DCP-197C All-In-One Printer. What can I say, this is our most popular printer BY FAR. It boasts a compact size for your desktop, 27ppm colour printing and 33 ppm mono printing. Up to A4 borderless printing and takes individual inks (black, cyan, magenta and yellow) saving you money by only replacing the ink that you need. It has a high resolution colour scanner and you can print direct from camera via the PictBridge connection. USB Host and Media Card Centre (print and scan) and includes FREE document management software. And last but certainly not least it is EnergyStar certified meaning lower energy usage. We have put this printer through the rigours of a busy office enviroment and it has never let us down. Value £73.80, we have 1 to give away.

Spaceworx Wood and Metal Letter Tray and Letter Holder. Ok I confess I love having really nice things on my desk (I'm a girl what do you expect!) I saw these and fell in love with them. Now my desk looks pretty and yours can too. I have to add they are not girly so looks good on a mans desk as well! Value approx £30, we have 3 to give away.

IXL Strongbox. Polycarbonate constuction, key retaining lock, removable coin tray and removable document holder. If you have to transport valuables do it safely, I even took one of these on our recent trip across France (see post further down). Value approx £15, we have 2 to give away.

Pentel Energel Sterling Liquid Gel Rollerball Pen. This is a really nice pen, it is 0.7mm medium rollerball with quick drying ink and its refillable. I recently went to a seminar and used this pen and I didn't get that fatigue you get from writing non stop all day! Value approx £8, we have 5 to give away.
So there you have it, I hope you like the selection and it just remains for me to say a sincerely heartfelt thank you for putting up with all the changes and I hope you like the new design. Please do get in touch if you have any problems and good luck with the prize draw! I will post a list of the winners here on 15th November.

New Brother Cartridges.

LC-985. Available individually and in a quad pack. I like the new designs of the packaging, with the moon, sun and earth.

New HP cartridges.

Hp 301 Black and colour. Once again the colours are in a block cartridge (all in together) so if one runs out you have to change the cartridge. When will they learn?

New Canon cartridges.

The large black is PGI-525 and the small black and colours are CLI-526.

Finally the new release cartridges are all here!

Autumn is always an exciting time of year with all the new cartridges for all the new printers being released just in time for Christmas! As always I will do individual posts for each brand. Epson have three sets of cartridges out that at first glance seem to be the same cartridge but in three different sizes (medium, large and extra large) but BE WARNED, this is not the case, there are only a couple of printers listed that take different sizes.
Not sure about the packaging on this one! I don't fancy Mr Fox looking daggers at me! I quite often get customers asking for the picture on the front and the colour (i.e a black duck) so now I will be asked for a pink fox!
Very Garden Of Eden. Blue apple anyone?Lots of discussion on this one. John is adamant that it is a reindeer even though it is blatantly obvious it is a red deer. If you are phoning us and get to talk to John just say "it's a red deer ok" it will make his day!

Sorry for the silence....

I am sorry that I haven't been putting up the winners every day like I promised, but there have been a couple of hiccups that took over slightly! Don't worry we are still sending out the Kodak Digital Photo Frames and Papermate pens every day, we have nearly run out and we are deciding what to do for our next giveaway! Exciting stuff!!
