The meat of the matter is, there will be a slight delay in the release of my calendar. I was informed yesterday by PSPrint, the company I've used for many years, has refused to print my calendar due to its nude subject matter. Apparently they were purchased by Deluxe, a company that mostly makes business forms and checks, which forced their "1950's beliefs" on them. The customer service manager was very apologetic about the situation and clearly unhappy with what his overlords had done. He had the unpleasant task of informing many of their long time customers they had to censor their material or go elsewhere. Needless to say I won't censor my calendar. So I am in the process of selecting a new company, one ok with my art, with comparable quality, and a price that will make it worthwhile. I still hope to have them by the end of September. In the meantime: #boycottPSPrint #boycottDeluxe
Other subsidiaries of this neolithic (though I think civilizations of the stone age were more enlightened about the human body) conglomerate include:
ChecksByDeluxe.com, Custom Direct, Inc., Direct Checks Unlimited, Hostopia, NEBS, Safeguard Business Systems, Inc. ,SyncSuite, Chiswick, Inc., Designer Checks, Direct Checks Unlimited, DLX Check Printers, Inc., McBee Systems, Inc., Paper Payment Services, Plaid Moon, Inc.,PremiumWear, Inc., PPS Services, Rapidforms, Inc., Russell & Miller, Inc., Standard Forms, Ltd., Stephen Fossler Company, VeriPack.com, Inc. ...all of which I will do my best to avoid from now on.
