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.

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.

Back to school; upcoming holidays; political races….what do these have in common? They are all events that bring customers to you to order signs. With so many signs to choose from, how do you know which one is right for the occasion? Read on to find out!
In my 20 years at Stouse in many job capacities, I have come to learn that there will always be new and unusual request for products and custom quotes. They are what keep my day interesting and my brain always thinking. Sometimes, our customers will get into a groove of ordering a specific type of product from us and forget about the rest of our product line. It never ceases to amaze me when you start talking about a products that you have produced for years and you hear “I didn’t know that you produced that!” Never be afraid to ask Stouse about a special request from your customer.
Industrial and Equipment Labeling is one of the most popular markets at Stouse, but our product line for this industry doesn't stop at Custom Decals. Cross-selling is an easy way to increase your revenue by offering additional products to an existing customer.
Let’s face it … we all get thirsty. How many times do you reach for a water bottle? How many trade shows, meetings, or social events have you attended that offer water bottles to quench your thirst?

Make sure you’ve covered your bases on what information to include on your card. Don’t ever be in a situation where someone doesn’t know how to contact you. Name, title, phone number and email address at the minimum. Also, we recommend including the general office number for your company and website. Idea: space permitting, add a QR code that links to your website.
