Welcome to our new column! We are planning to make this a regular feature in our newsletter. Hopefully you will find the time in your busy day to enjoy it. A note of interest regarding the title: Did you know that the name Corbin comes from the Old French word for raven?

Family Ties
I'd like to start by introducing you to our team. I will start with the Grand Poobah, Wayne Corbin, whose concept for a business over 26 years ago started the ball rolling. Since then he has welcomed (in order of appearance) Lynn, Blair, George, and Diane to the team. And yes, we are all Corbins! A couple of us have adopted the name through marriage; the others have Wayne and his wife, Doris to bestow credit upon. I'll let you figure it out for yourselves, but now you get the picture - a family company!

By the way, for those that know him, have any of you seen Blair lately? You realize that hair-wise he has been a holdout from the 70's, with the long, shaggy look. Not that there is anything wrong with that, of course. However not to mention any names - his wife and some of his kids have been trying unsuccessfully for years to bring him up to date. Well, an unsuspecting fairy godfather recently granted them their wish the last time Blair went for a haircut. Let's just say that after seating himself in the chair, and asking the fellow to trim the back, he got a little more than he bargained for. In his own words, “I thought I went to a hair stylist, but instead I got a barber.”

Mission Possible
Although many of you have already come to know us over the many years that we have been in business, we are pleased to make the acquaintance of all you newbies out there, and welcome you to the fold. We hope that in time we will have the pleasure of meeting you in person. It's what we like to do best, get to know our clients, and work with them. Always uppermost in our minds is that we strive to be the kind of company with which we ourselves would like to do business. Ask around; I know that the people we have had the pleasure of serving over the years will agree that we have achieved this. To this end, it is our pleasure to find products that will meet your desires, as well as your needs. We search the globe to discover that special product which we can bring to you for your greatest satisfaction, saving you the trouble of having to do this for yourself. Recently, we believe we have accomplished this with the addition of these two new products to our line:

Rav en Vinyl Cutter: Amazing! An affordable entry level or perfect back-up machine, it has all of the professional features you could possibly want at an unbeatable price. You will not find such a high quality piece of equipment for a better price anywhere! You have to see it to believe it!!

Encad VinylJet 36 Printer: This is really exciting! Finally, a large format printer at the right price! And that's not all! No mess! No fuss! The water base inks require no special ventilation, and it prints on standard uncoated vinyl!! Yes, it does banners!!

What Would You Like?
Is there a particular item that you are looking for? Please give us a call or drop us a line with your suggestions. Let us know how we can better meet your needs. That is what we are here for.

Open House
Our June Open House was a huge success! It was the place to see and be seen this season. We enjoyed catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones. The Encad VJ-36 demonstration was an event not to be missed, as was the opportunity to win some wonderful door prizes. I'm sure the lucky winners will agree. The Vector Art Mega Collection clip-art package went to Continental Signs, ABC Signs took home , and Columbia Awards is the proud owner of a new laser level. Congratulations one and all!

A Raven Eats Crow
(Or How Blair's Day Got Off to a Good Start): For all of you who have endured Blair's lectures on backing up your data, here's one for you. The first thing Blair likes to do when he comes into the office in the morning is check the all-important email. Well, the other morning his attempt to do just that proved to be a fatal error when Windows XP informed him that his email had been corrupted. Zip! Nothing! It was all gone! The computer wizard had been beaten at his own game. Does he walk the talk, you ask? Let's just say, for the most part, but maybe not religiously. So, once again, with the pain of defeat fresh in his mind, he has asked me to remind you to BACK UP YOUR DATA. The teacher learned a lesson. And if you were one of the people who requested a catalogue, and haven't received it yet, would you mind placing your request again? Sorry about that.

Rising of the Phoenix
We would like to share with you the success story of a wonderful friend and client, who has met the challenge, and risen from the ashes literally. He became so successful within a few short months of purchasing one of our Rav en cutters that he decided to move ahead and take his part-time home business into the big league, and open a storefront. After sinking his life savings into renovations, and just before opening day of his beautiful new shop, he received the devastating news that it had been completely destroyed by fire! Upon checking with who he thought was his insurance agent, he discovered that the policy had never been processed. Can this story get much worse? No, in fact it gets better, because with the indomitable and generous spirit that endeared him to us, although we have never met him in person, we are pleased to report that he is up and running out of his home again. We have tried to be of as much assistance to him as possible in his time of need, but especially we would like to thank him for all he has done for us during the time that we have known him. Best wishes, and God bless you, Charles in your future endeavours.

Please continue to read on about the offerings at Corbin's. You will learn how you can build a profit center, and much, much more…

For your success,

Team Corbin
