Presentation Folders, sometimes referred to as Pocket Folders, are not only functional but they give companies an opportunity to stand apart from their competition.
Simple in concept but very powerful in the impact a quality folder can provide. Quality is key. When shopping for presentation folders you should consider the following:
- Weight of the paper – A flimsy feeling to the paper will create a subtle yet negative impression of your business. Exactly the opposite of what you trying to create! Look for at least 100lb paper with a smooth or linen finish.
- Printing vs Foil Stamping – Printed folders are everywhere. Why not consider standing out with having your folder stamped in a rich foil that showcases your logo.
- Minimum Quantities – If you are trying out a company for the first time, you may want to place a smaller order to ensure you are satisfied with the quality before placing a larger one.
- Pockets and Business Cards Slits – Think carefully about the intended use for the folder and make sure to choose one that meets your needs. Are you planning to include a business card? Materials that go in 2 pockets? These are the things you will need to think about prior to placing your order.
- Information – Folders today can convey a lot of important information that is easy for your customers to reference by printing on the front, back and even the pockets of your folders. Consider printing things like your company name, slogan, hours of operations, address, important phone numbers and URL just to name a few!
Remember, you may only get one chance to make a positive impression on your clients. A quality foil stamped pocket folder with attention to detail can set you apart from your competitors. Don’t miss out!
If you are an admirer of the Arts or have friends and family that are, these styles of greeting cards from artists such as Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and Charles Neal, portray their magnificent works.
The cards are ideal for individuals, like myself that are fond of nature’s landscapes and picturesque settings. I just wish I could actually experience the Argenteuil, Villen at Boardighera, or walking in that Garden Path of Monet’s.
My absolute favorites of the note cards are the flower portraits. I LOVE FLOWERS!! Any kind and all kinds of flowers. As an advent gardener, I do have an appreciation of the artwork. These cards are absolutely stunning. Actually, I do have a favorite flower, the Sunflower. The Sunflower greeting card that is featured in the Gallery Collection should also be considered as a Fine Art Note Card too.
I have a good friend who is an enthusiast (and that’s an understatement) of this style of painting. Her entire home is fashioned in this Classic influence. She adores this period in history. I am sure she would purchase these note cards without hesitation. She would love to receive any one of these cards and even have it framed. The quality of these cards is what makes them special and should only be shared with those special people on special occasions.
I’m sure each one of us would agree that one of the most stressful events in our lives can be not only going on job interview but also preparing for a job interview.
From the moment a face to face meeting begins, everything is about you – your appearance, speech, ability, personality, even your smile – is being assessed. It’s up to you to create a favorable impression. And preparation is the only sure-fire way to make an important job interview a winning experience.
By following just few simple steps, you can better prepare yourself before the interview:
- Select and layout your complete interview wardrobe. Carefully go over what you plan to wear the day before.
- Sort out the credentials you plan to bring with you. Be sure to include several copies of your resume, letters of commendation. Be sure to include any achievements you received in your field.
- Have a notebook and pen handy. Review notes and other data you compiled to help prepare you for the interview.
- Most importantly, get a good night’s sleep! You never want to arrive late for an interview.
As an applicant in any job interview situation you are bound to be tense no matter how relaxed the interviewer may try to make you feel in his attempt to have you reveal yourself fully. During the interview, the interviewer will take note of your knowledge of the company, the manner in which you respond to questions as well as in the kind of questions you ask him. He will observe how you talk, sit, and smile. You always want to listen attentively. He will observe your enthusiasm (or lack of it). You always want to present a positive attitude. You shouldn’t talk too much during your interview; you don’t want to talk yourself right out of the job. One of your biggest goals during the interview (besides being offered the position) is to get the interviewer to like you. All these observations will be the basis for determining whether or not you are rejected, placed in a doubtful category, maybe be invited back for a 2nd interview, or in some cases, you’ll actually be offered the position.
