The Way I See It
 

I came across this poem, “Dust if you Must,” by Rose Milligan and thought you would enjoy it.

Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
To paint a picture, or write a letter,
Bake a cake, or plant a seed;
Ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there’s not much time,
With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb;
Music to hear, and books to read;
Friends to cherish, and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair;
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
Old age will come and it’s not kind.
And when you go (and go you must)
You, yourself, will make more dust

Build Trust With Your Audience
WAYS TO SHOW YOUR BUSINESS IS CREDIBLE

It is essential to show prospects and customers that your business is credible. If they visit you and doubt your trustworthiness, they’ll disappear and never return.

Here are a few ways to prove your company is credible online, in print, on social media, and more.

  • Use authentic images. Take professional photos of your team, your products, or lifestyle photos showing your products in action.

  • Promote your product guarantee. Include a blurb on your product ordering pages as well.

  • Include detailed product, shipping, and return policy information. Ensure that customers are educated upfront before their purchase, so there are no surprises down the road.

  • Include multiple ways to contact your business for customer service and support, including email, phone, social messaging, or live chat.

Our team would love to help you create print marketing materials that build trust with your customers. Come see us soon.

Daily Assessment Reports
PROVIDE HELPFUL DAILY UPDATES

Daily assessment cards or forms are a smart way for many businesses, such as daycare centers, kennels, and healthcare workers to provide helpful daily updates.

In addition to including important contact information on the report, some popular details to include are: daily plan, a favorite activity, medicines, updates about meals, bathroom breaks, naps, and more.

Daily assessment reports can be created as a notepad with sheets that tear off, 3 hole punched sheets, or as carbonless forms, leaving a second copy for the customer.

If your organization could benefit from daily assessment reports, give us a call today. We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

Save Time with Tell Me
TELL ME WHAT YOU'D LIKE TO DO

If you are a Microsoft Office user, here is a tip to help you save time. There is a text box on the top ribbon in Microsoft Office that says, “Tell me what you want to do.” You may enter words or phrases about what you want to do, such as “paste image” or “edit footer,” and it will help you quickly get to the actions you want to perform.

Some people may see “Search” instead of “Tell me what you want to do” in the ribbon. The functionality works exactly the same.

Click the lightbulb button to access Tell Me on a smartphone or tablet. On a phone, the lightbulb button will be located towards the bottom left corner, and on a tablet, it will be found on the ribbon at the top.

If you’d like tips to save you time on your next printing project, we’re here to help! Stop by or give us a call today.
