I was watching a couple of movies over the weekend and for some reason, I was noticing all the printers that popped up in the different scenes. I suppose it really isn’t any big surprise that you’d see printers in office scenes in the movies since it would be a little weird to see an office without one. Still, this was a futuristic type movie so I guess it bodes well for American Printer Service, Inc. that according to Hollywood, we’re still going to have printers in the future!

Seems like most of the printers that I was noticing were HP series printers so looks like they’ll be around for a few more years too. Always nice to have a little job security, right? Anyway, if you spot a printer in a movie or TV show, take a screen shot and send it to us here on Printer Repair Blog and we’ll feature it here, as well as try to track down the model. Just kind of a fun thing to do.

Happy Flag Day Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington from Printer Repair Blog!

When I was growing up, I remember always seeing the American Flag flying from the bannister of our house. I never really understood why until later on in life when I learned that I had family Members who served in the military but until we sold that house, The Stars And Stripes were always on display.

Today, as I was driving to work, it seems that some of the patriotism of yesteryear has, sadly, disappeared. There were one or two houses with the Flag flying from the front porch, but on the whole, I’d say that 90% of the houses were blank. When I stopped into the local coffee shop and politely inquired about if they were going to fly the flag today, the immediate response was kind of a quizzical look and then the question, ‘Why?’

Anyway, I hope all of our readers have a great Flag Day, and if you can, please do ‘show your colors’. Living in this great country is a remarkable privilege and one way to show that you recognize that is to honor the American Flag on special days (and always) like today. I suppose it is rather easy for us here at American Printer Service, Inc., since our company logo is built around a red, white, and blue theme, but I do hope that I’ll see a whole lot more flags flying from porches on my way home tonight!
