Free Wallpaper for your Phone or Desktop: July 2015


Independence Day is coming up, and we thought some red, white, and blue was in order.  Let's add some American pride to our screens with this month's freebie.

We love their philosophy and that they are a Dave Ramsey ELP (Endorsed Local Provider).  They have always been so kind, helpful, and prompt.  They were wanting to freshen up their look, so they Read more [...]

Why Choose a Local Print Shop

The other day I visited a local print shop. It's been a while since I've been in one, but just entering the doors reminded me of why I love them so much.
