Our Annual, Life and Holland Club Membership cards are outsourced. In an effort to reduce costs, I have studied the expenses for these cards from 2015 through 2018. The results are as follows:

Average annual cards printed: 1800
Average printing costs (four year) $2000.00
Average annual costs Preprinted Card Stock $ 825.00
Average annual shipping costs/shipment $ 420.00
Total (average) $2500.00

Taking the Membership card printing in house would produce significant savings:

Dual Card Printer costs $2178.00
Blank Card Stock $ 200.00
UPS Shipping $ 420.00
Printer Supplies $ 200.00
Total average operating costs $ 820.00
Costs year 1 $3000.00
Card Costs year 1 $1.67 ea
Cost Costs Year 2 $0.46 ea
Net Savings $1.21 ea
Net five year savings $8700 (amended number)

I motion we purchase the printer at a cost of $2178.00 from Idesco Corp and take the printing of membership cards in house.
Two quotes were received and this is the lesser of the two quotes.
