With Pen - Computer in hand . . . Veronica I. “Ronnie” Jones, 850-547-0102 BOY, have we got great news for you this month! Joint Ventures give more avenues of success to all those who take advantage of what is offered. We have not taken lightly to all we can bring to our industries, who are directly affected by drilling. No matter what you build, how you build it, it all started with drilling. By combining mailing WWDR and DBGD it’s a BIG win! So beginning with this October issue of our widely respected WorldWide Drilling Resource ® magazine, we’ve made some improvements. The main body of the magazine now becomes “THE MAGAZINE.” It will continue to include those most informative articles bringing new technology, as well as valuable history to your doorstep; new and exciting industry events; and beautiful display advertise- ments which allow you to view in PRINT, as well as ONLINE, what manufactur- ers and distributors have to offer before you buy and easily contact them for more information. The BONUS IS - there is MORE ROOM for it. Classified advertisements will be found in Doc’s Buyers’ Guide for Drillers™ . It has a comfy feel of great newsprint we are all so very fond of - but nowadays there is no black ink left on your hands. That’s a plus in and of itself! So, when you take advantage of PRINT CLASSIFIED ADVERTISING instead of looking at something online in listings, and then looking at another list- ing, never being able to find the original thing you really were interested in again, you actually appreciate the printed word. Just circle what you are interested in, continue looking and possibly finding something else you like, circle it, then when you are finished, you can actually call on the one(s) that interest you most. BOTH publications will continue in the one poly bag container to protect your copy from the harsh traveling it has to do to reach you. PLUS, you may just find an additional piece or two included which have bonus discounts, or new and interesting items breaking into the market. Everyone knows postage has continued to increase over the years. We have done our best to hold rates and bear the cost of mailing on our own. Now comes a time when we need help from you to bring these fine publications to you. We only ask for those in the United States to pay $1.00 per month; Canada and Foreign $1.67 USD per month billed annually beginning with our January issues, for the combined poly bag mailing. That means $12.00 USA; $20.00 Canada and Foreign USD will be the 12-month postal mailing fee. There is no charge for printing despite the fact many paper manufacturers have raised their rates five (5) times this year alone and will continue to raise their rates. Some papermills have closed or shifted their focus from “paper” to cardboard products, etc. Your understanding and help is greatly appreciated.
