our top 5 success tools for 2014

We’re no fortune tellers, but based on recent trends and your input, here’s what we’re predicting will be big in 2014:1. Modern Minimalist™ Collection: Your overwhelming response to Design Aglow Modern Minimalism™ illustrates that less really is more! This line will look just as sleek next year, and serves as the ideal backdrop for the complete customization of your brand. 2. ProPhoto Sites: These turnkey blog templates match our Marketing Suites. Enough said.

3. Our Exclusive Charcoal Line in the Design Aglow Paper Shop:

As the only charcoal boxes, bags, and folders on the market, these add polish and sophistication to your packaging (and they’re so much better than shiny black!).

Ensure your business is sustainable and self-supporting with these perennial bestsellers (because making more money is always in style). 5. Orchid, the 2014 Pantone Color of the Year: We were already on top of this one; we sell orchid ribbon in the Paper Shop!
