‘Tis the season...for clients to be harried and forgetful and scrambling for holiday gifts. Needless to say, the fall/winter crush is when we all get, well, crushed.

Consider printing a stack of 5x7” cards on beautiful stock to have on hand (or in frames) for clients having a “oh my gosh I didn’t get something for them” moment.
