Contact Alexandria Moran at AMoran@appliedimaging.com The path of life is not always an easy one; sometimes it takes us on unexpected twists and turns, other times it’s a little blurry and hard to navigate but we keep on going. For some of us, though, we may come to a point where our path seems to be completely blocked. There sits this huge, immovable boulder and, no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to make it budge. What do you do then? In November of 2014, Ken Cottrell was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer. Chemotherapy became his…

For Pete’s Sake, Give A Little.

For Pete’s Sake, Give A Little.

– that inevitable aspect in each of our daily lives that assists us in being functional human beings. It’s that voice that whispers in your ear first thing in the morning telling you exactly what to expect from the day. Each person’s routine is unique in its own special way. Mine- wake up, walk to the kitchen, fill up a glass of water and shuffle to the bathroom. It takes me about 18 minutes to shower, 15 minutes to do my makeup and 10 minutes to transform that unruly frizz to the long loose curls that make me look like somewhat of a professional. Routine helps us to feel that our time here on earth is just that- ours. It gives us control and with…

Throwback Thursday: Dot Matrix Printing

Throwback Thursday: Dot Matrix Printing

When I was little, there was always one thing I would do every time I visited my grandma’s house. I would make my way into her basement and steal some paper from her dot matrix printer, carefully rip the perforated edges off, and make fun doilies out of them. But what makes that printer different than the printers we have today, and why did it have those weird perforated edges?

What happens to old copiers?

What happens to old copiers?

A while back, I wrote a blog post about when we recycled almost 800 printers. Well, what would have happened if we hadn’t recycled them responsibly? In the city of Accra, Ghana, the West African nation’s capital, there is an electronic waste dump called Agbogbloshie. Here, young boys pull apart old electronics and burn them to remove any metals they can sell. It’s incredibly dangerous and hazardous to their health. In fact, many of the boys who have spent a lot of time at Agbogbloshie have started to die much younger than boys who haven’t. That’s why Applied Imaging is committed to making sure old printers and copiers that are returned to us are recycled responsibly. We partner with local organizations who take apart the…

Canon imagePROGRAF and Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Canon imagePROGRAF and Captain America: The Winter Soldier

With an increased attention on climate change, printers seem to be used less and less. However, it seems to me that printers are simply being used more creatively. Take, for example, this case study from Canon. The wide-format iPF 8400 were used extensively on the set of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, both on and off camera. Check out this video to find out more: Do you have a creative use for an imagePROGRAF machine? Call Applied Imaging today for more information: (800) 521-0983
