2008 might as well be called the “Year of Price Increases.” Nearly all the major printer manuafacture’s raised the prices of their consumables (I believe Epson is the only company who hasn’t.). In face, one of my most popular articles in this blog deals with the HP price increase.
Well, it all leads back to HP again. I just received information that on Jan. 1st, 2009, HP will be increase the prices of their supplies (Printer cartridges and such) by an average of 5% due to “economic conditions”. Who cares that they do remain profitable for the entire year and still make lots of money and the rest of us are struggling .
