Film Prices Going Up Again – DEI Absorbing the Increase … Again

Sometime between December 3, 2012 & December 15, 2012 most film suppliers will be raising their imagesetting film prices again. The increase could be as much as 5%, possibly more. We at DEI Systems understand that at this particular time, with the economy like it is, most printers can’t afford even a small price increase on imagesetting film.

Therefore, DEI Systems has decided NOT to pass this increase on to our customers. It is our hope that this will be the last increase we see for awhile, as we most likely won’t be able to absorb another increase.

We are doing it to keep the industry competitive. We know many of you are having to bite the bullet, we will do all we can to help!
