If a picture is worth so many words, I am saving you a lot of time by sparing you all the words that would be needed to describe what’s been going on around here since my last post. Suffice it to say that our little business is going nuts and growing fast. No sense hiding our light under a bushel anymore. We are doing everything we can to put in place the tools, equipment, help, and systems to serve all the clients that are coming our way. We are very excited about the future!
In November I will be celebrating my 10th year as owner of The Sherwood Press. It’s hard to believe all the jobs that have come through this small press. I looked at my client list since I put our accounts into Quickbooks in January of 2004, and I have served nearly 450 different clients, most of them are repeat customers. It’s a lot of work for what has been a one-woman business nearly all of these ten years.
This is just a sampler of projects that have being occupying our time. We will highlight some of our particular clients soon. Stay tuned!
