A Note from Our President

It's hard to believe that Summer is already half over! While we are all (hopefully) taking it a little more easy than usual, enjoying extended weekends at the beach and taking family vacations, this is also a perfect time for all of us to take advantage of the slower pace and get our marketing initiatives in place for the 2008-2009 season. To help you accomplish this, during the month of August 2008, we are offering a 10% discount on all of our services here at Canfield Design Studios. To take advantage of this great offer, please mention this newsletter discount when you contact us!

In this issue, we highlight our client Laura Thompson and Loralia LLC (and some perfect new Summer reading); share an article from Jussim Communications about the important differences between writing copy for print and the Web as you work on your marketing materials; and finally we offer some "just plain fun" Summer picks.

We also highlight a beautiful new mug by our Swimming Paintbrush division - perfect for taking back to the office in the Fall!

We hope you enjoy this issue, and as always, we welcome your thoughts.

Yours in prosperity,

Kathy Canfield Shepard, President
Canfield Design Studios, Inc.

Marketing Copy: Print vs. Web

by Jude Jussim

Well-written marketing copy can keep your business vibrant, too, even when markets are slow. There are practical differences between copy for print marketing material and copy for the web. This issue of Words of Worth highlights the differences.
