Some feel not enough. In 2011 $10 isnt much, I think it may have looked better if they offered a whole bunch of free product instead of $10 - even if the cost to them was less than $10. When I told my wife about this she had the EXACT same reaction as one of the first posters: "Wow, ten whole dollars!?"I think the great misconception here is that Reprolabels are going to make a lot of money out of this. I don't see that happening. For each sticker sheet scanned, I really couldn't see them selling more than $1000 worth.
Is anyone privy to Reprolabels financials? No? Thought not.
I think that would be very interesting. I'm sure gross or net revenue isnt very high, but I bet the profit margins are through the roof, to the point they would never want anyone to see.
As someone said earlier, $10 for five minutes of scanning. $120/hr ... does that really sound poultry to anyone? Really?
Indeed it does (paltry), as this is what a lot of this discussion seems to revolve around.
I strongly believe in "if you dont have anything nice to say dont say it", but being this is a discussion forum I dont think anyone's opinions here are out of line. My only reason for getting involved was not to bust Repro's chops, but I felt the first few posters who made comments about the paltry $10 had their chops busted a little bit, and wanted to say that whether you agree like I do, or not, these opinions are not crazy.
