Although online marketing can help small businesses reach a global audience, many industries are still better suited to attract customers through printed media. One problem SMBs face is the cost of outsourcing their printing efforts. ReStockIt.com’s brand partner, HP, recognized the need for an affordable solution to in-house printing and created a new generation of color LaserJet and multifunction printers.
One such innovation is the HP Laserjet Pro 400. This multifunction printer gives small and medium businesses a competitive edge by bringing their printing operations in-house. The Pro 400 can create two-sided color documents automatically with its auto-duplexing feature. You can scan documents directly to email with a color resolution of 600 x 600 dpi (dots per inch). The HP printer is also blazingly fast at up to 21 pages per minute in color, with the first page produced as fast as 17 seconds. With all these features and more, the LaserJet Pro 400 is small enough to sit on a desk.

Gov mandates incandescent bulb ban while LED technology improves
The federal government passed a law which will mandate energy efficiency goals for all light bulbs 40 watts and above, goals that traditional incandescent light bulbs cannot meet. This means that the 425 million traditional light bulbs currently in American homes will have to be replaced by an alternative technology. For those who love the soft glow of incandescent bulbs, websites like ReStockIt.com are stocking up on them in anticipation for the ban.
On top of this, fluorescent lights seem to be on their way out due to the amount of toxic mercury vapor released when broken, and the environmental costs of manufacturing them.
Fortunately, LED (light emitting diode) technology has advanced enough that it will become an affordable alternative to traditional bulbs around the same time that the old bulbs get banned from stores nationwide and online. The newest generation of LED bulbs from Sylvania produce a more natural light, and are just as bright as incandescent and fluorescent bulbs. They last about twenty five years, consume less energy than fluorescents, and are less harmful to the environment.
At the moment however, although they are available in stores the cost of these new bulbs prohibits any significant demand for them. Americans are instead stocking up on the older technology before it is banned. California has already banned stores from restocking 100 watt incandescent bulbs since January of this year. Consumers who want or require 100 watt bulbs are now forced to buy 100 watt compact fluorescent bulbs, which are more expensive, toxic, and emit a color of light that make some people uncomfortable. LED light bulbs can be configured to mimic the warm, familiar color of incandescent bulbs but again, at the moment their price has prevented the American market from diving into this technology. Incandescent light bulbs have no expiration date so if you prefer the warm glow of incandescent light bulbs, get them before they are extinct!
