Now regular readers will know that I don't like to toot our own horn here very much on this blog - I believe the blog is mainly about educating our customers and prospects about custom labels. But allow me this one indulgence.
We have just wrapped up another great year here at Lightning Labels. We had record sales of over $2.3 million, a 55% increase over the year before. But what was most gratifying to me is that our repeat business increased even faster - 62% over 2005. I certainly appreciate your continued business and the confidence you all have in our ability to meet your label needs.
This year I am more excited than at any time since I started this business back in 2002. With the delivery of the new digital label press later this month, we will be entering a new era. The new HP -Indigo WS4500 is simply the best digital label printing press money can buy and it will allow us to serve our customers even better. I will be reporting here when the new press is installed.
This year marks our 5th anniversary in business, we took delivery of our first press in March 2002. It has been a challenging and enjoyable journey, but the Lightning Labels story is only just beginning.
