instead of making and mailing birthday cards to my clients, I took VistaPrint up on their offer of 250 free ($6 for shipping) postcards and ordered birthday postcards. They're bright, cheery and cheaper to mail - 28 cents as opposed to 44 cents each. I still have about a hundred of the old cards already made - but since I'm trying to economize in every way I can - the postcards will have to do for the summer and fall birthdays this year. The back side has my business information as well as room for a handwritten note and the client's address. I ordered new business cards and address labels from VistaPrint earlier this year when I finally ran out of the old cards. I also got business card size labels to stick on my client folders - they're blue with sunflowers and I got a lot of nice comments on them. I try to buy my client folders during the after back-to-school sales and then I just put a label on the front with my information and a business card in the inside slot. The new labels worked great this tax season (and eliminated having to put an additional card inside the folder) and I will probably do the same next year. I did manage to find reasonably priced recycled folders on Amazon, so I may not be chasing down the folder sales this fall - at the price of gas! VistaPrint also has printable client folders with the sunflower design - but I am still crunching the numbers on those, pretty as they may be. Can you tell I'm planning ahead already? I may have never been a Girl Scout, but I do like to be prepared!
