Brothers II loves Dogs

Every Pet-Friendly business needs a dog pen and we are no different.  We love our little furry Co-Workers! Even the boss takes them outside for some fun in the sun. William ran inside too fast so I didn’t get him on camera ☺.  We sell and service business machines but that doesn’t stop us from having a fun day doing it. outside dog pen

Pet-Friendly place to work

Brothers II Business Machine is a dog-friendly place to work. Sadly we had a loss this week, my beloved Duke had passed, he was 14-year-old Cockapoo. He was loved by everyone here, he was so sweet and visited everyone a couple of times a day. If he walked into your office just to say hi he would be handed a treat so of cause he did it often. It’s very hard to say goodbye to a family member or even a furry co-worker. Thank God I got to bring him in and was able to spend time with him at work. RIP my fur baby.

If you bring your dog to work post a picture on our Facebook page of your fur baby and luck place you work at.

Lose Holiday Weight with your copy machine.

Christmas Parties = Holiday Weight

Waiting for copies at the copy machine? Take this time to sneak in a quick leg workout or tone your tummy.  Stretching and moving your legs builds muscle strength and endurance and prevents aches and leg pains.

Build leg muscles while making copies

How to do it: While holding on to the copy machine for balance, bring your knee up and down, or after bringing your knee up, extend your leg back. Try pulsing your leg to really get your muscles burning.

Toning your tummy

• Start with feet flat on the floor.
• Stand tall at your copier.
• Hold your abdominal muscles tight.
• Extend one leg until it is level with your hip.
• Hold for ten seconds.
• Slowly lower leg.
• Repeat 15 times.
• Change legs.

These exercises are subtle enough that if you hear someone coming, you can quickly stop.

Give these links a try you already have the copier.

Print your wrapping paper with your copier!!

The holidays are coming why not save money this year by making your own wrapping paper?!!

Cut the wrapping paper to 8 inches wide so that it will fit in the printer. The paper can be as long as you need it, but can only be as wide as the printer to run through. Load the wrapping paper into the printer and hit print!

Or use these websites or find one of your own.

The USPS Proposes Rate Change for January 26, 2020

The USPS® Proposes Rate Change for January 26, 2020
On October 9, 2019, the USPS® filed a notice with the Postal Regulatory Committee (PRC) to change the prices of shipping services such as Priority Mail® and Priority Mail Express® and First-Class Package Service. If approved, these changes will take effect on January 26, 2020.

A big takeaway is that the First Class Mail® rates are staying the same with stamps still costing 55 cents. In addition, postage meters will continue to save 5 cents, or 9% over stamps.

This rate change for shipping products is timed similar to UPS® and FedEx® that historically adjust prices each January. On January 6, 2020, FedEx will raise prices an average of 4.9%.

The Postal Service continues to offer a great value in shipping. Unlike some other shippers, the Postal Service does not add surcharges for fuel, residential delivery, or regular Saturday or holiday season delivery.

Outlined below are highlights you can expect for the upcoming January 2020 rate change.

First-Class Mail® Rates will remain unchanged.

Priority Mail® Rates to increase by 4.1% while Flat Rate products increase from 4.9% to 6.2%.
The proposed domestic Priority Mail® Flat Rate Retail price changes are:

Priority Mail Express® Rates to increase by 3.5%
The proposed domestic Priority Mail Express® Flat Rate Retail price changes are:

FP will continue to provide updates as soon as they are released by the USPS®. To access the most updated rate change information, visit:

Getting lines when scanning or duplex from your copier, try this?

Getting lines on your copies?

Do you get lines when you are scanning or making copies? Please see our videos to help guide you on how to give the glass a good cleaning. A tiny mark is always the culprit if you line the copy up to the glass, it lines up where the mark is.

 

Don’t forget to turn your clocks back this weekend.

If you are like me this isn’t your favorite time of year, so let’s make the best out of it. Try to invite friends or family over or make a nice comfort food dinner so when it gets dark out early you may not notice.

A Rainy Halloween

It’s going to be a wet and windy Halloween here on Long Island. Try taking your kids to the mall, most stores give candy out to our little ones. It is safer and warmer. Or take them to work and dress up like we did at Brothers II this year. Funny Hat Day! Guess who I am.
