In my new position as Academic Services Director, I am going to head a group of company reps for our academic (and other) products. The base products are graduation related: diplomas, diploma and certificate covers, caps, gowns and tassels. It doesn't have to stick with schools though. Any business that could use certificate or presentation covers (think menus, photos, awards, retirements, etc.) could possibly select our products. Another branch of the company deals in high end specialty boxes, presentation cases and special books. We have done many exciting products for highly recognizable companies and entities. From the finest leathers to fabric, any price range can most likely be accommodated. Beauty schools, daycare centers, aeronautic and Bible colleges...any group that gives recognition is a potential client. I am going to be polling my friends to find people interested in repping our fine products.

Another part of the company, which also falls under my purview, is textbook rebinding. We can save schools a lot of money by rebinding rather than purchasing new textbooks to replace use-worn books.

Pay attention!

This is too funny to not share. For the past few weeks I included an Albert Einstein quote as part of my email signature. Recently I sent an email request to an online company. Today I received an email telling me - Albert - that my package would arrive in a few days. I am going to laugh out loud when the mail to Albert Einstein arrives. You must treat me with more respect! Heck - *I* must treat me with more respect.

Wonder what they'll do now that I've changed my email signature to a Goethe quote. Think they'll mistake me for him too?

Then there's the dental office sign I spotted earlier this week - "Free Child Cleaning." Really? Baths or showers, I wonder. And do they shampoo too?
