It’s that time of year! Preparing for holiday and acknowledgement season. If you own a business or run a non-profit now is the time to get ready to send out those letters thanking everyone for their support in the past year. These kinds of letters can encourage continued support in the year to come. If you need assistance creating and sending these cards and notes I can help. You can contact me here and we can discuss my fees for creating and sending your holiday and acknowledgement materials. There are no consultation fees and I can perform this work remotely, or we can have a meeting to discuss your options in person in the Philadelphia area. Start now and beat the rush of the next few months!
