Issue 995 – March 28, 2018

Ask any printer … the first half of the year can be tough. Coming out of a quiet January, we’re no sooner getting some traction than the long-weekends kick in. Starting with Hobart’s Royal Regatta Day in Feb, there’s Labor Day, Adelaide Cup Day, and Eight Hour Day, before the Easter four-day break. We’re living up to our reputation as the land of the long weekend. No one wants to be a Scrooge, but it makes it difficult for businesses to get up to speed. By most accounts February proved a bit of a fizzer and March doesn’t look much better.

For printers it means keeping a close eye on cash flow, even while enjoying their time off.
