Something I look forward to most this time of year is the holiday cards. I love seeing the creative ways my friends and family send me their season’s greetings. Typically I get the 5"x7” card or the 4"x8” photo card, and I usually send out the same thing. This year, I want to send something different, unique, outside the box. I started thinking about my options and the light came on.

It seems like only yesterday I was a Stouse Quote, hoping to someday become a real live order and now here I am, a gorgeous 4-Color Process Bumper Sticker with a valuable coupon on my liner.
Customers ask us all the time how much they should markup our products. Some customers use a standard 50% across the board, some markup more or less. We built the Selling Price Calculator so that you can easily see the margin potentials on your orders with Stouse. You can find the Selling Price Calculator located under the Sales Tools tab on our website.
At Stouse, our Order Entry department is in charge of getting all orders entered into our system correctly. They translate hundreds of different PO’s each day and enter that many orders. Our Order Entry Specialists take a lot of care to ensure that your order is entered with accurate information. When a job is submitted with good art and the PO, or online order, has all the relevant information, that job will get entered and moved on without delay. However, when jobs are submitted with incomplete / incorrect information, this requires extra time to correct the errors. Below are 5 easy steps to ensure that your job gets entered accurately and on time.
