Agfa raises prices (again)
« on: May 13, 2013, 12:33:14 PM »
Just got a bill from Agfa. Our Azura TS Gum went up $100 per cube; that's almost 100% increase in price. No word from our rep to warn us, and now he's not returning calls. Nice.

It was a milestone day for me when I booted their asses out the door for good, many years ago.
Sweet FA right now.

That's a fine way to treat us after we just dropped over 20 large on a new Epson proofer.

Had an Agfa sales rep leave me a message to call him back at work a few days ago. Never bothered calling him back because we have already sold our souls to the big K. I might now just to mess with him  :popcorn:

Fuji has never let me down once and many, many a time saved my ass.

Agfa has saved my ass before but supply was a constant issue.
