That a business man or business firm is judged by the Stationery
used? It is a fact. When a business man uses a plain sheet, or
even an unartistic letterhead upon which to write his communica
tion, he is looked upon as being a dead one and is given a wide
berth. But, it is tho opposite when using neat and attractive
material; he is thought to be a man of business ability, a wide
awake business man and a hustler, and is given all the attention
and accommodations possible, and his credit is never doubted.
We do only first class, uptodate, artistic and attractive
printing for the very lowest price that high grade print
ing can be done.
