Why Buy American?
Why buy from an American company if you can get it cheaper from Asia?
When you buy American, the materials and labor are provided by American suppliers
and American workers, who use the latest technologies and are paid a fair wage for
their labor. When you buy American, you help to keep our economy strong, and you
show your support for American workers.
When you consider buying from Asia, the first thing that you should ask is whether
you’re getting the same product for your lower price. For example, the proofing
techniques used by some Asian firms may be outdated, and used only in third world
countries. Ozalid proofs, which are commonly used by Asian printers, require the
use of ammonia, and are harmful to the environment.
Then there’s the delay – not to mention the risk – in shipping your valuable and
time-sensitive goods across the Pacific Ocean and the North American continent.
Much of the old, outdated, and obsolete printing equipment from the US and Europe
is sold to companies in Asia. The overall product quality from these antique machines
is usually a far cry from products printed in America.
There’s also the human rights angle: American workers are protected from exploitation
by a variety of mechanisms not available to most Asian workers – labor laws, unions,
and the free market.
As a consumer, you have a choice. You can send your hard-earned dollars to Asia,
or keep them here where they belong.
Buy American…It’s the right thing to do!
