how can you give?

If you've not heard of Help Portrait, do yourself a favor and pay a visit. Then, watch this video from Jeremy Cowart.In retrospect, the Help Portrait concept is so obvious.  But it took a visionary with the right combination of concept and contacts to make it happen.

here’s why…

Let's be real: custom printing (even when it's not letterpress or engraving or some sort of fancy glow-in-the-dark inks) is expensive.  It may seem inordinately more expensive than more off the shelf print jobs (standard-sized postcards, business cards, stationery, etc), but there are some very real and compelling reasons for it.

stationer’s secret | number your RSVPs

Tracking RSVPs may be one of the largest challenges of inviting a large guest-list to an event.  Whether it's dealing with guests who take it on themselves to include a +1 or those who refuse to send their response card and, instead, call or email. A particularly challenging aspect is deciphering the handwriting of the respondent - is that "Mr. and Mrs. Barking Camel" or "Bruce Carson?"  An easy solution is personalized Response Cards, where each...
