The Importance of the Perfect Fit Envelope. Seriously.

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 | Miscellaneous | No Comments


Tufts Health Plan in Watertown, MA, had to alert 70,000 members to an inadvertent disclosure of their health plan information, after it was exposed in the window of envelopes mailed out by one of its vendors.

The Tufts’s vendor mailed plan ID cards with the member’s ID number, name and address visible inside the envelope window, which is a big non-no.

The Story of Advantage Laser Products

The company began in Tuscaloosa, Alabama when Brian Chaney and Marvin Masson, two college friends, partnered to launch a desktop printing company in 1987. After their Apple Laser Writer printer cartridge ran out of toner, they learned about how to refill printer cartridges and decided to start Advantage Laser Products. In 1992, John Miller merged his software company with Advantage Laser Products and in 1994 the company moved to Atlanta, Georgia. Since that time, the three have worked in close partnership and have built the company with a dedicated team, where more than two thirds of their employees have been with the company for over 15 years. Employees all agree, it’s an amazing place to work with a diverse team of employees from a range of backgrounds, who all believe in hard work and playing hard as well.

Order early – UPS and FedEx are slowing down during record breaking holiday season

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017 | Miscellaneous | No Comments

This year UPS has forecast to ship more than 30 million packages daily for Christmas rush. FedEx predicts it will move a record-breaking 317 million shipments between Black Friday (November 27) and Christmas Eve.

That means things will slow down a bit. FedEx has not given us any notification that they will slow down, but based on what we are seeing from UPS, it would be safe to assume your packages might take an extra day (or two) for shipments this week. Our advice – Order early!

Despite our “Give the Gift of Toner” Christmas promotion, we are not experiencing a mad Christmas rush for MICR toner and blank check paper, so our shipments are shipping the same day ordered as always.

This is what we received from UPS…

All UPS 2nd Day Air® and UPS 3 Day Select® packages shipped on December 18 and 19 will require an additional day in transit. UPS 3 Day Select packages shipped on December 19 will be scheduled for delivery on December 26.

UPS 3 Day Select: Monday, December 18 (delivery on Friday, December 22)
UPS 2nd Day Air: Wednesday, December 20 (delivery on Friday, December 22)
UPS Next Day Air®: Thursday, December 21 (delivery on Friday, December 22)

Order online at www.advlaser.com and all orders placed before 4:00pm will ship the same day – as per usual.

Advlaser.com safe from Heartbleed Security Bug

Monday, April 14th, 2014 | Miscellaneous | No Comments
Advlaser.com and MICRpro.com are save from Heartbleed security bug.

Advlaser.com and MICRpro.com are save from Heartbleed security bug.

In case you were wondering, our websites www.advlaser.com and www.micrpro.com were never vunerable to the Heartbleed security bug. Both of our sites are both hosted by Volusion. Fortunately all Volusion stores are safe from this security flaw. While the issue is potentially very serious, Volusion and thus Advlaser.com, doesn’t use OpenSSL for encryption. Therefore Volusion was never vulnerable to this security issue, so there’s no need to change your passwords on advlaser.com. One reason we use Volusion is that they take security very seriously. To learn more about Volusion’s security infrastruction, read: Volusion Takes Security Seriously and So Should You.


Winter Weather Causing Delay In Shipments of MICR Toner Cartridges and Check Stock

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014 | Miscellaneous | No Comments

January 28, 2014 – the winter weather really hit us hard on Tuesday. Unfortunately FedEx didn’t run, so none of our MICR toner cartridges or check paper were shipped. The way it’s shaping up, we are unlikely to be able to ship any product out Wednesday as well, but we will try. Thursday looks promising and if FedEx runs, we’ll have quite a load of toner cartridges to ship.

You can still place your order. We have a skeleton crew in today to take orders by web or phone. Order online at www.advlaser.com or call us at 800-722-2804. As we are short staffed, online orders are preferable. We’re here to serve you! Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Our employees have some great stories about their adventures getting home last night. Some walked home, others spent 10 hours just to get home, while others never made it and stayed at friends houses. What a night!



We’re eating the FedEx 2014 4.9% Rate Increase – Happy New Year!

Monday, January 6th, 2014 | Miscellaneous | No Comments
FedEx 2014 - 4.9% Rate Increase

While FedEx is raising rates 4.9%. We’re eating the additional cost, Plus we offer free ground shipping on all toner cartridges in the US.

It’s that time again, each year both FedEx and UPS raise their rates. This year the rate increase is 4.9%. We’ve decided to keep the 2013 rates for 2014, so you’ll save an additional 4.9% on shipping each time you order. Our volume with FedEx gives us the room to pass along the standard FedEx rates discounted by 4.9%. As usual all toner cartridges ship free of charge.*

* If you order our MICR Toner Cartridges, Standard Toner Cartridges or any HP MICR Toner Cartridge, we already provide free shipping on these products. But if you order Blank Check Paper or HP MICR Laser Printers you’ve got to pay the piper.
