After a long winter

Post by dp1 on Sat Jun 17, 2017 6:58 pm

After last few days in 90+ degrees weather, finally things are picking up, not like a couple of years ago, not as well as I'd hoped but bigger jobs started to roll in, what I've been doing is clearing Mondays through Wednesdays and just work Thursdays through Saturday, that way it seems like we are busier, lol.
Sorry I haven't been posting much, just busy with life.
Hope you guys are doing better with business Very Happy

My May was through the roof this year. So far June is not doing very well at all compared to last year.

We postcarded part of the day today, but I need to order more postcards. Want a redesign, but I don't have a month to wait for a card and printing.

I have a lady that does mine thru vista print or...$30 for her time + cost:)
And she always finds a coup for those online printer.win-win

I want someone to design my postcard with photoshop. I could do it with Vistaprint or even several other postcard printing houses, but they don't have the look I want.

I ended up ordering 5k cards of what I have, for 150 bucks. I may try fivver, or I may try to find someone who will design 2-3 cards for me. I'll write my own copy, I just need someone to put it together and make it look good.

June has been pretty good as far as most Junes go. But beating last years is going to be a challenge

I am at least picking up a little so maybe there is hope in finishing strong to save June. Last year, June and July were terrible months.
