Fall is near!

With summer winding down it's amazing to think how fast summer raced by! 
 I'd like to thank all the folks who stopped by my booth at Arbor Crest this year, it was great fun, the weather was terrific and it was a big success once again.

Arbor Crest 2017

Special thanks to the folks who purchased art works to take home, it is very much appreciated. Also, thanks to those who dropped their names in the "drawing jar" for the free print, Melissa Simpson of Spokane Valley was the winner.

 I'll be sharing some more art giveaways as I near my anniversary month of November and into the new year. This year will mark my 40th year in business, so I figured it was a good time to celebrate a bit and share some art.

40 years is a long time, it's been quite a journey, so I thought it would be fun to share some photos and stories of this journey over the next year and take a look back at art works over the decades.

It's always a good time for a Thank You...

5" x 7" Note Cards
I've touched on this subject in the past,
and it is still as relevant today as ever, perhaps more so with the depersonalization of the electronic age. 
With all the emails, texts and tweets and voice mails, many have lost the personal touch.
Hence the importance and power of the hand written note to friends, loved ones and most importantly in business, the valued client or customer.

This time of year many businesses are planning their marketing budgets for the year, so I thought it a good idea to remind you that you should consider budgeting an order of personalized thank you cards for yourself and perhaps your sales and marketing staff.
There are several choices to choose from, all of which include your logo and personal salutation.
The cards are produced on the finest linen stock available and printed with state of the art  Epson archival ink, with linen envelopes for a first class presentation.
They are available in two sizes, 5" x 7" Thank You type format available in bulk cards only, and 5.5" x 8.5" Fine Art Note Cards available in bulk cards and gift boxes pictured here.. 

Gift Boxes and Bulk Cards

5"x 7"Cards- you can see the imagery available at  5" x 7" Note Card Images
Cost percard with logo and salutation is $2.25 bulk,
 minimum order of 50

5.5" x 8.5" Cards- you can see the imagery available at 5.5 " x 8.5" Card Images

Cost percard with logo and salutation is $2.60 bulk, Special order minimum is negotiable.
 minimum order of 50

Gift Boxes are $23.00 includes shipping US. 

Examples of inserted logos and salutations, available on backside or inside of the card.
