We are having a problem with theft at work. I am talking about Customers that makes copies of our coupons that we mail out each month. Last month I sent out 1,300 coupons, we have received over 4,000 coupons back. 6 coupons per sheet, ranging between $15 - $55 off. (you do the math)
The owner came to me and said fix this problem. I did my research on the internet. I found this really cool paper that changes the background if its copied, but it cost big bucks to buy. So that is out of the question.
What I did was this:
1. I changed the wording on the coupons. It used to say: Save with our coupons. Now it says: Save with our Flyer.
2. I added a copyright notice at the bottom of each page, and added a Disclaimer at the top that says: Flyer cannot be copied or cut.
3. I also found on the internet embossers, so that we can emboss each flyer before we mail them out.
I hope this takes care of the problem. But I am sure someone out there is going to try to steal from us in different ways. Its crazy to think that people would out right steal.
Is there not any honest people in the world anymore?
