Unitus: Yep, Northwest Graphics already has about $400 of my money. It was a little problematic at first since their business hours are the same as when I am stuck at my day-job. But I now know they will ship to the studio I work at. I still need to shop in person till I am experienced enough to know what the hell I need to buy. It will take some time for me to work out a system.
DRG: I don't know if I would call taking advantage of $500 in free credit the same as supporting Amazon. But if it puts you at ease, see my reply to Unitus. I'm not my own business (yet), but I do my printing at a co-op, shop for most necessities at co-ops, and even live in a condo complex that is a co-op -- if that makes any difference. My point: I'm trying; but hey, $500 free money!
