From a printing shop in a Minnesota town of 2500 inhabitants we recently received the following letter— Dear Country Printer: . • Do yon realize that thousands of dollars are going 1 ont of country towns every year simply because printers In the towns cannot sell their products In standard printing lines at a price that will compete with the cut-rate printers whose salesmen solicit your customers? Of course you can't sell printing: such as letterheads at a price of $«.50 the thousand or less, and jet that Is the price that your out-of-town competitor Is selling 1 them for. There Is where we come In. You take the job that Is being offered at a low ]ir!ce that will land you the Job. AVe print the thousand letterheads for $2.25. That gives yoir a profit of ?1.25 which Is about 05 per cent profit on $3.50. Where can you find a fairer profit! If you are Interested In the proposition, just fill In the enclosed cord and we will send you further Information on the Idea and samples of our printing-. Why not set up an ad something 1 like tliot enclosed and run It In your paper the next Issue so that you will not miss a single chance to take an order that would otherwise go out of townt HURT JUNIORS Has it, then, come to this in the country job- printing business? Certainly conditions begin to look like it. This is not the only instance of such a proposition. Within the last year such proposals have become frequent. They are the outcropping of what has gone before—the gradual process of 20 years. Twenty years ago every country printing shop printed many local orders for letterheads, envelopes, statements, and other ready-ruled forms. Today this business for the country printer is all but gone. First came the salesman for »the city printing shop. At home the city printer charged regular prices. To get the country business away from the local shops he charged whatever he could get. The city salesman is still doing it. But now he has to meet the competition of mail-order shops too. In addition, the country shop is robbed of local business in another way. The local business man's jobbers and wholesalers send him free letterheads, statements, etc. This is the meanest, lowest, most unconscionable competition which the country printer" has to meet! The astonishing thing about it is that the country business man in towns like Algona falls for it. Every country printer nowadays is mortified monthly, not to say enraged, when local collectors present bills for local goods he has bought from local business men made out on stationery printed out of town. What are the results? One result is that the job-printing business of the country shop is rapidly being reduced to work that can't be specialized—club yearbooks, for example. Result No. 2 is that the country printer's meager profits are reduced to the point where he cannot improve his shop with new machinery and new type. This reacts directly on his town. It is part of the movement of the day in the direction of building up the city and reducing towns like Algona to suburban business feeders. Result No. 3 is a direct loss to local merchants of the trade they might otherwise get from more printers employed in local shops. If the Algona printing shops could get all the printing business of Algona they could each employ three or four more printers. These printers would receive $10,000 or more in wages to be spent in Algona. How foolish, then, to make this impossible in order to save a dollar now and then by patronizing some outside "scab" printer! How unwise to help build up some other town and help tear down your own! All for a few cents of unreal savings! What are you, Mr. Local Business Man of Algona, going to do about it? Are you in business only for your health? Or do you want to see Algona grow? Do you want more of the local business without which you cannot prosper? Think About This Think about it every time a city printing salesman solicits your order. Think about it whenever you receive free stationery from your jobber or wholesaler—who gets the cost back in increased prices for the goods you buy from him. Think about it when you get mail-order offers from "scab" printers. Think how you would feel if your local printer followed your example. You cannot build up your town by buying things elsewhere that you can get at home! You cannot build up your town by reducing the demand for local labor! You cannot build up your town by depriving the local printer of the profits he needs to equip himself to do better printing at lower prices! Think on these things. False economy is false economy! For every dollar's worth of printing you buy out of town at "scab" prices you lose two dollars you might have if you gave all your business to your own printer, who could then hire more printers to spend more money right here in Algona. Show the "scab" salesman the door! Tell him, "Here's your hat; come again when you can't stay so long!" Throw the "scab" mail-order offers into the nearest wastebasket! Give your orders to your own printer at living prices. Let your local printer make enough to equip himself better and hire more help. Let's build up Algona, not some other town. This is where we live. It's where we rear our families. We all want to make Algona a good town. Will you help? Advance Publishing Co* WE BUY IN AfcGfONA, DO YOU?
