Leather Conference Folders or E.Leather Conference Folders? The Facts and Figures

Leatherette could be a thing of the past once the amazing E.Leather fabric is more widely known throughout the Promotional Merchandise world. This article gives you all the facts you need to help you make a choice next time you are asked for Real Leather products.

1. Where does E.Leather come from?

E.Leather is a by-product of numerous manufacturing process where leather is used. The basic materils is extracted from excess trims of leather, split hides and leather shavings all of which were previouslyy discarded as general rubbish. An amazing 83% recycled leather content is created when these scraps of leather are intergrated with a textile core and most importantly no adhesives are used in the process.

2. Is the manufacturing process Environmentally Friendly?

The production process uses a state of the art Thermal Oxidiser that meets stringent EC regulations, this process recovers the solvents used as energy thereby reducing natural gas use by 50/70%. In addition the use of our air to air heat exchangers also recovers significant amounts of energy. Gas is used for drying heat which reduces CO2 emissions per KW by up to 50%. All the electric motors used in the process are low energy, high efficiency units and are rated at EFF1 where available. The resulting product is supplied on rolls which ensures minimal wastage with a very high cutting yield. Constant reviews of production processes are expected to shortly result in a closed loop recycling process.

3. How is E.Leather actually manufactured?

The shavings, trimmings and off cuts are collected and ground down to produce individual leather fibres. A strong textile core is laid between two webbed rolls- the top layer is formed of fibres from shavings and the bottom layer is formed of fibres from trimmings and hides. The leather fibre webs are interlinked with the textile core using the process of hydro-entanglement. This process excludes the use of any adhesives and helps in giving the fabric a natural feel. The fabric is then dyed and afterwards dried and colour coated.

4. What colours and Textures are available for E. Leather Conference Folders?

There is a standard stock range of colours that is wide enough to cater for 99% of all requirements however Pantone matching to corporate colours can be easily achieved subject to minimum quantities. Texture is very important with especially with leather and there will be different requirements depending upon the use that the E.Leather is put to. For example you are unlikely to want a very soft, light finish when making promotional drinks coasters whilst a fashion handbag would feel very uncomfortable manufactured from a firm unyielding finish. It is possible to create a number of different grain finished with this process which adds yet another dimension to this excellent fabric.

5. Give me some good reasons why E.Leather should be my preferred choice.Leather for my next order of Conference Folders

Buyers of Real Leather products should think seriously in future about making a preferred choice between both products. It’s not for me to make that choice for you but do please consider who you are buying these Leather Conference Folders for and what is their position in relation to the environment.

Legal translation service – what you need to know

Legal translation service – what you need to know

<!– @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } –>

When it comes to translating a document, you have two choices: You may go to a self-proclaimed talented freelancer or you may approach a reputable company that follows industry standards. Costs of working with a freelancer may be less, but the risks are proportionally higher. A sad experience of Coors illustrated this, when their ‘Turn it loose’ slogan ended up as ‘Suffer from Diarrhea’. Talk about being lost in translation!

However, when it comes to legal documents, there is only one smart choice, and that is working with certified and experienced translators. Since law is very much dependent on the culture of the land and on the particular subject that is dealt with by the document, inaccurate or wrong translation may have dire consequences. That is why businesses invariably turn to reputable translation companies that work with certified and experienced translators.

Legal translation services may be required by any business or individual, though they are most commonly required by law offices and courts, especially for court proceedings on an international level. So, when lawyers deal with foreign documents, legal translation services are a must. What’s more, if the translated document is to be legally valid in another country, it has to be translated and certified by a “sworn translator”.

A sworn translator is a person who has been certified by his or her country’s government with the power to execute a sworn translation. This is different from a certified translation. In the latter case, the translator is highly competent and is a member of an association or club (like the American Translators Association in the US). While this offers a guarantee of the quality of work, it is not legally binding. The document may be well translated, but it will not have any legal validity. A legal translation service will provide you with a translated document that bears the seal of a local civil court which identifies the translator as being a sworn translator. Any translation that is produced by a sworn translator may be deemed as being a legal document when it bears the official seal and signature. Every page of such a document will be signed and sealed in this manner.

Most businesses documents need legal translation services only for certain documents that require legal validity in a foreign language. For instance, a translated birth certificate, degree certificate, patent certificate, proof of identity, official documents or a company’s articles of association require legal translation services when they are rendered into a foreign language. Only then will such documents be accepted as being legally valid in the foreign country.

As businesses grow, the demand for corporate documents to be legally translated is on the rise. Sworn translations may be more expensive but it is the very nature of accuracy and legal validity that make them costly. And smart businesses are happy to shell out the extra price. Better safe than sorry, especially for legal documents.

How to approach selling your business

How to Approach Selling Your Business

So finally the time has come to sell the business.  After investing years of your time and uncounted thousands of dollars, it has become successful, providing for your needs and wants, and it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.  Where do you start?

A good time to start thinking about selling a business is right after startup, when it shows signs of beginning to succeed and become self-sustaining.  Even if you are planning on bequeathing it to your progeny or a partner, it’s never too early to think about what will happen afterwards.

The first step is to take your time–selling a business is a complex process and you will only do it once.  Confidentiality is a necessity at this point, as word of an impending sale can cause repercussions among employees and business partners (suppliers, customers, etc.) alike.

Your position in the business is also a point to consider.  If you are the sole proprietor, the decision is yours alone.  However, if you are a partner or board member, selling your part of the business will involve more considerations.

Finding a good broker is worth any amount of time needed to locate one you are comfortable with.  Check the Better Business Bureau for any investigation history, and get referrals from fellow business owners or from industry associations like the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA).  This is a non-profit “trade association of business brokers providing education, conferences, professional designations and networking opportunities” (IBBA), as well as professional certifications and boasts over 1300 members.

Next, a professional appraiser should be consulted, as just like selling a home, a professional appraisal will give a fair value to begin negotiations with.  Keep in mind though, an appraisal is an estimate of the fair value of a business’ hard assets, and the market value of the business may be higher or lower, as a business is only worth what someone else is willing to pay.  

Determining major terms and price are issues that you are going to have to work out with your broker, but a few basic factors come into play: what do you want to get out of the sale?  Continuing salary?  Lump sum?  Stock options?  This is a step often overlooked until late in the negotiations, often to the detriment of the seller.

Financing the sale is usually about 90% left to the seller.  If you can’t or won’t be willing to cover the costs of the sale, it may not be a good time to sell.

Once you and your broker have located a buyer and agreed on a price, a Letter of Intent is drafted.  This letter outlines the terms and tentative price in a non-binding document and allows the buyer time to thoroughly investigate the business.  This process is subject to Due Diligence, as the onus of discovery is placed upon the buyer and buyer’s agent.     

After the discovery process is completed to both parties’ satisfaction, the Purchase Agreement is drafted.  This set of paperwork creates a formal agreement between buyer and seller regarding purchase price, terms, and other legal details.  Once the respective lawyers have finalized the details and complied with state law requirements regarding the sale, the Purchase Agreement is signed, closing documents finalized, and the sale is complete.  If everything has gone well, it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief and start planning what to do with all that free time!

Affiliate Marketing A Good Place To Start

To make money online quickly and without a web site or technical knowledge is possible using affiliate marketing. It costs nothing to register with the various affiliate companies and you can start earning fairly quickly, depending on your marketing methods.

Most people start with “Clickbank” because it is free to register and there are no fees to marketers. You can set up an account very easily and they pay very good commissions up to 75% of the sale price. Of course if it was all so easy, everyone would be doing it. Well to make money online using Clickbank or any of the other affiliate programs requires knowledge. It really is no different to setting up a bricks and mortar business but without the huge costs involved.

Other popular affiliate programs are “Amazon” and Paydotcom. You will be amazed at just how many companies and some really well known brands have an affiliate program. However, for these you will at least need your own web site and some marketing skills. This is all easily learned if you have a desire to succeed and are willing to learn.

The best advice I can give you is not to fooled by the very flash websites promising you riches on “Autopilot” no knowledge needed. This is all pure hype but thousands fall for these snake oil sales pitches every day.

How to be confident during the mba interview

How To Be Confident During The MBA Interview

How To Be Confident During The MBA Interview

In this installment of MBA Interview tips, I’m going to tackle a tricky subject…how not to appear desperate.

There is a very fine line between cockiness and desperation. When you’re having your interview, how well you walk that line can mean the difference between getting accepted or having to accept second best.

The advice I am going to give you in this installment is not going to be easy to follow because it reaches the very heart of our souls and existence. In other words…you can’t con a con.

The people who will interview you are pros. They have seen it all. They can tell the posers from the real thing. If you go in there and try to BS them, they’ll know it…and ultimately…you’ll get nowhere in the process.

Probably the most important thing is not to appear desperate. This is actually not too hard to pull off, even if you have to drink some herbal tea before going for your interview. There are several keys to doing this.

First, don’t talk too fast. Too many students try to get in as much information about themselves in record time in order to impress the interviewer. This is one of the fist signs of desperation and it will doom you right from the start. Speak slowly and clearly.

Second, don’t try to cram every little thing you’ve ever done into your interview and don’t tell the interviewer that you’ve dreamt of getting into this school since you’ve been in diapers. It’s not going to wash. They will see right through this.

Third, and I no this sounds like it should be obvious, but don’t beg and don’t get all emotional saying that if you don’t get into this school your life is over. It isn’t over, they know it, and you’ll only come off as being desperate.

You want to speak with confidence but not too cocky. This is the hard one for young people to pull off. They usually go to one extreme or the other. Either they’re too humble or they come off as a total jerk. Find a balance. If you have to, do a mock interview with an older person.

Like it or not, how you handle yourself during the interview in this area is going to make a big difference. So practice your interview skills.

It will prepare you better than anything I know for that big step…getting into the school of your dreams.
