  1. Congratulations. Loving the Hero cards as they appeal to my aesthetic. But putting that aside, all that matters is that everyone enjoyed the event. Congratulations also to Small Business Trends

  2. Speaking for myself, it was fun! I feel we’re all winners for trying. And now I know where to go to make a print brochure for myself if I need to :)
