Nice endorsement from one of our customers today, thank you Peter!:

“ The service we received from Starlight Corporate was the epitome of professionalism. From the initial enquiry, offering guidance and advice, sending out samples, re drawing our logo, tracking of progress and finally the delivery - earlier than expected - could not have been bettered. The quality of the work and the end product - Custom Notebooks in our case - could not have been bettered and I am confident that our delegates will use them fully.”

- Peter Hill, Managing Director, CFM Consulting Ltd.

Off to the annual trade show next week, so I am reading the trade mags a bit more closely than is usual. Read a good article about service: that the customer can choose two from GOOD-FAST-CHEAP but not all three. The implication is that if you go for fast/cheap then what you receive may not be good.

We focus on good-fast, and then good-cheap. We always buy through uk factories however on large orders we can get a lower price by using their quality assured supply chain to source directly from the Far East. (Castelli and Moleskine notebooks are manufactured in Italy.) The lead time will often increase to two months or more. ie GOOD-CHEAP but not FAST.

This rule applies in most businesses. I was talking to the owner of a large construction business last week. "We always get four quotes and choose the cheapest on a like for like basis". "How is the wet weather affecting things?", I asked. "Well, we were expecting a delivery of steel structures last week and because of the bad weather they did not turn up".

Where are the notebooks made? Here is a picture of one of the uk factories we work with. 22,000 sqft. Our criteria are quite strict so the client receives the benefit-  excellent range of products with plenty of options for customization, together with accurate and fast turnaround.
