Katie, thank you for the information.  Right now I am not doing a ton of shows and sales have been down from last year.  I appreciate you honesty, and I do realize you are trying to make money and run a business just like anyone else.  I also realize with the invention of companies like Square your company has to reinvent themselves and change in order to keep Customers coming back.  I do like the idea of having the device with the printer and wouldn’t mind having to pay for it.  I just feel you don’t know unless you ask.  I have to see how my next few shows go and may get back with you.  Again I would like to thank you for taking the time and replying to my question.  I know it can be hard for someone working with a company trying to soft sell on these forums.

Take care
