I like to think that there are some things that don't need to be on a site - but it does need SOME things, and often not what you would expect.

Here's a scary scenario, imagine with me if you will...

You find a niche with a void that your company fills. An opportunity to make a fortune from this hidden treasure. You decide to increase the "bottom line" and save yourself some money by making a DIY advertising piece. Surely, that trial version of Word can handle it right? Write some copy, throw in a few pictures off Google, download a free font, make some money... what could go wrong? So many things, in fact:

1) Google Images, are all pictures Google can find on "crawl-able" websites. Meaning they belong to someone else. Someone who has copyright rights to them, or maybe someone's personal pictures... Trust me, you don't want to see that price tag (https://www.contentfac.com/copyright-infringement-penalties-are-scary/)

2) Your free font... It can be missing characters... Even if it all shows up when you type "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" (a sentence that includes every letter of the English language) that does not mean that in your copy. Check out the picture I've attached... This is from a current piece that I'm working on... The word should be "Defining" but for whatever reason, when using this particular font, typing 'f' and 'i' next to each other, causes it to disappear... The fix (that typically only relatively experienced designers would think of) could be as simple as adding a space and changing the size of it so it's virtually undetectable.... or it could take a bit of other "finagling" that we call "Designer Secrets". Also, did you know that for commercial projects, you need a Commercial License? (That can cost you even more if you get sued for commercially using intellectual property of someone.

3) Please, do not use word processing programs to create any sort of promotional material for your business. I've heard of people using Microsoft Word - even some using Excel (a spreadsheet program) to create marketing materials. Don't do this. It will only create a headache for you, your customer, and eventually the landfill workers... You wouldn't use a hammer for a screw, right? (I would hope your response would be "only in a pinch") Also, have you ever tried to print something promotionally from your home printer? It takes a lot of supplies... and if you even think of "sending it away" to be printed, as a Word document or Excel document, you'll be laughed at behind closed doors - and charged astronomically on your invoice.

You are an entrepreneur. Give the design work to the professionals, and save yourself a fortune in the long run. Trust us.

As 2017 draws to a close, that means one thing in our house... the Heirloom Solutions catalog is almost finished. I have been doing this catalog since 2014, and look forward to see how it has grown throughout the years. Back in 2011 when the company started, the catalog was very small, barely 20 pages. The 2018 catalog is 80 pages long, with over 400 varieties of heirloom seeds. With nearly 75 hours put in with editing and layout out new varieties and helpful articles for every gardener, I always end up learning more about my garden each year. My son even got a cameo in this year's catalog with his pea garden.
