**** We've just completed a major update of the WORLDWIDE GUIDE TO RAPID
PROTOTYPING'S service bureau directory pages with thousands of changes and
More than 60 service providing locations have either gone out of business,
closed, or been acquired by competitors since the last major update about a
year ago. However, nearly an equal number have either opened or been newly
uncovered through industrious research. The total number of listed locations
is thus only slightly lower and remains close to 600.
SERVICE PROVIDERS SHOULD CHECK THEIR LISTINGS AND LINKS. A handful of errors
were found in the previous listings. Your free listing can be very valuable
to you - but it's definitely worthless if it's wrong.
**** Companies that haven't already done so, should send us a 50 word
description of their services, to be placed with their listing AT NO CHARGE.
A majority of service bureaus have taken advantage of this free offer over
the last 2 years, but surprisingly, many still haven't.
ACT NOW BECAUSE THIS FREE LISTING DESCRIPTION SERVICE WILL END IN *14* DAYS.
We will institute annual fees for service bureau directory descriptions
received after this deadline. Just send your 50 word description to
firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll put it right up. If you'd like more listing
details, please see: http://home.att.net/~castleisland/add_lk.htm
**** FOR COMPANIES SELLING TO SERVICE BUREAUS, we offer The WORLDWIDE RAPID
PROTOTYPING SERVICE BUREAU DATABASE. This database has also just been updated
and can save you hundreds of hours of tedium. The Database is an Excel
spreadsheet containing the following information for the nearly 600 service
provider locations listed in our SB directory web pages:
* Company name,
* Physical location (and/or postal address),
* Telephone and Fax numbers,
* Toll-free telephone numbers,
* Company email addresses,
* Contact names and email addresses,
* Available RP technologies.
As always, registered users can receive the update at low cost. Simple
directions are provided for using the spreadsheet data in typical
applications, as well as a brief tutorial and many tips. For more
information and pricing, please see:
