Dayton Legal Blank is getting voted off the island

Heard today from one of my vendors that Dayton Legal Blank sent letters saying they closed the doors Feb 11, 2013.

From their website:

Apparently, with all the money in political campaigns, the voting part of it hasn’t been as profitable. Considering the move to electronic poll books, voting machines, and digital signature capture devices- there isn’t much left to print- except those stupid petitions for the Dayton City Commission- and Xerox killed that market once paperweight stopped being a grounds for disqualification.

Thank you Dayton Legal Blank for employing people in our community for 130 years.
