1. Snazzy Signature, Huh?
I had fun doing it with WiseStamp, while testing it for my realtor client who wanted a better email signature. WiseStamp is a web browser extension that enables users to design and personalize their email signature and link to their social profile for $4 a month. It integrates with webmails such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, and Live Mail.
2. Your Personal Assistant Got New Business Cards
Want some? My fabulous graphic artist friend suggested I check out GotPrint to order my new business cards. It was a fantastic suggestion: I uploaded my front and back design, selected a wonderfully thick 24 pt paper at $30 for 500 cards, and I had my cards a week later. Super impressive.
3. Personalized Holiday Gifts
My monogram-happy client had me order these multiple items from the Mark and Graham catalog/website. All items were monogrammed and gift wrapped for free, and we were able to get 10% off since it was our first-time ordering:
a. Hinged Earbud Case, $29
b. Leather Passport Case, $59
e. Framed Leather Clutch, $149
f. Self-Inking Round Stamp, $39
4a. The Economist Style Guide
All publications have a style guide, or a set of standards for their writing and design. The Economist magazine was kind enough to put theirs online for the world to use as a reference and example of good writing guidelines.
Here is a terrific website for anyone looking for a volunteer or intern opportunity.
5. Holiday Stamp Alert
Peanuts fans, such as Your Personal Assistant, will get a Christmas bonus this year, thanks to the United States Postal Service serving up "A Charlie Brown Christmas" Forever stamps. Go here to order yours or here if you want to see what else the USPS is offering this year.
