This is not a new idea, but one you've probably forgotten...
Boost your image,
four times a year...

This idea gives you the opportunity to put that color printer to work for a rather special greeting and self promo piece.
__ Since this one works well with a high-bulk, 24lb stock, you can knock these off quickly on your own printer. The pattern is so simple, you can either let the recipient cut it out for assembly, or make an acrylic cutting pattern for near mass production. (Instructions are described in our "Custom Envelopes" piece in the DT&G Online Business department.)
__ Whats cute about this is three surfaces give you space for informaiton or images, or three months of the calendar!
__ Why only three months? Well, the last week in March, you can mail your special clients another one, with a new message... then again in June, and again in September! Four changes to impress your clients.
__ This one folds neatly into a standard #10 envelope, so you can mail right along with your regular mailing routine.
__ Check Paper Direct and some of the other mail-order, boutique paper sellers for this design in a pre-perforated, scored version you can buy, ready to print.
__ If you download the 2000 Design Center Greeting, you'll see how neat this little trick is. Pick it up in the Publishers' Warehouse when you download all our other great cut-n-fold templates for the season.
__ Be creative this holiday season... have fun, and don't forget to send us a sample of your latest masterpiece so we can show it off for you.
