So Long Fruitcake, Hello Ink Jet Cartridges

If you thought today's monastics were all still making fruit cakes and communion wafers to support their communites, you haven't been keeping tabs on the Cistercians in Sparta, Wisconsin.

They're busy putting inkjet and toner cartridges to work for their community.

Father McCoy discovered that most printer cartridges are marked up by 1,000-2,000 percent of wholesale costs, and he found that he could save the monastery considerable amounts of money by ordering cartridges directly from manufacturers. A desire to offer the same benefit to other nonprofit organizations and a need to fund monastery operating costs led to Father McCoy’s creation of LaserMonks, (www.lasermonks.com), an online office supply business with a projected $2.5 million gross revenue for 2004 and big-name clients like Morgan Stanley and Panera Bread in addition to scores of schools and churches.

Just goes to show innovation is still happening in today's monastic communities.
