Online Shopping Retailer Elizabeth Avenue West Company Introduces Customers to Their New Personalized Gift Card Program

San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) May 29, 2013

Elizabeth Avenue West Company's customers can now give a personalized gift to friends and family. The new cards give recipients the flexibility to choose their own gift.

How Do Customers Get the Card?

All cards are sold online. As a card is ordered, Elizabeth Avenue West Company's third party vendor print's and ship's it out within 1 business day to either the purchaser or the recipient depending on what the customer tells them to do. All printing, fulfillment, customer support, and replacement of any lost or stolen cards as requested by the purchaser or card recipient are handled by their vendor.

How Does It Work?

The first step is your personalization. Customers pick from a list of card designs and personalize it with the gift recipients name and message. The Gift Card looks and acts like a credit card. Unlike a credit card however, the Elizabeth Avenue West Company Gift Card stores value: the dollar amount you prepay. Currently customers can purchase a card for any value between $ 20 to $ 500. On average, card values are typically $ 75.00. As an added incentive for consumers to purchase a gift card for their business, the Elizabeth Avenue West Company provides a $ 5 "bonus" with every gift card purchased. If a customer purchases a $ 25.00 gift card, the Elizabeth Avenue West Company gives the customer an additional $ 5.00 making the card worth $ 30.00.

As the gift recipient uses the card, the amount of the purchase is automatically deducted from the cards available balance. When the available balance is reduced to zero, the gift recipient can keep the card as a memento of your gift. If the card is lost or stolen with a balance remaining, the gift recipient can cancel the card and order a replacement.

"We are always looking for better ways to bring value to our customers," said Leon Wilson, Founder and CEO of Elizabeth Avenue West Company. "Our new personalized gift cards, will further enhance our customer's online shopping experiences."

Elizabeth Avenue West was launched in October 2007. Since that time the company has continued to provide better value to its customers and enhance their unique shopping experience.

We are an online provider of a huge selection of electronics, giftware, home decor, housewares, toys, computer equipment, jewelry and much more for our fast growing number of customers.

Spot UV Printing Redefining Todays Business Card

(PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Name, title and contact information; whats the big deal? With such a limited function is there a need for elaborate business cards? The short answer is yes. In most industries a business card is an extension of your professional appearance; it reflects your style, attention to detail and should act as a welcome complement to any introduction.

Not only do they reflect artistic style and individuality, business cards today are being used for a myriad of reasons. From appointment reminders to customer loyalty cards, the possibilities are expanding while still fitting inside your wallet. The only differentiating factor at one point was the quality of paper. While paper quality is still segmented there are several other elements that can contribute to the ultimate finish.

Spot UV business cards are a prime example. Spot UV is a method in which predetermined areas of a matte, or flat, card are glossed with a UV coating. This adds emphasis to parts of the card and draws the eye of the viewer; a subtle but effective touch. If a customer wanted logo in the corner to be the focal point of your business card, spot UV may be ideal in making it stand out. This is an inventive and catching way of adding the illusion of an extra layer without having to change the dimension of the card, such as in embossing.

Matt Santora, owner of San Diego based Santora Media Group, is on a never ending mission to maximize the solutions he can offer his clients. Spot UV Printing is just another option in his arsenal of solutions for businesses in San Diego and beyond.

We have an obligation to our customers in providing them with every possible resource to stand out among the competition. Im constantly looking at emerging trends and new advances in tech and seeing how I can provide my clients with what they need for todays environment.

The spot UV trend is still catching, and the fact that it hasnt yet become standard can add allure to those already with them. For a relatively cheap enhancement, why hasnt this caught on?

Some business owners simply havent been exposed to anything else. Once they see the advances that have been made it opens their mind to more options. Its a chain reaction of adaptation, one that ultimately woos both the business cards owner and recipients.

Some of our new customers have no idea of the abilities of todays offset printing. Its a great feeling when a client comes in and discovers first-hand how much more potential their products can have. Empowering the customer with new marketing trends and solution sets is the core of what we do here.

Though spot UV can certainly take your business card to the next level, the result is ultimately dependent on the quality of design. Santora Media Group staffs a team of professional graphic designers that utilize this new and creative technology with inspiring results. This is just another example how Santora Media Group offers a family of quality services all in one enjoyable and rewarding experience. First-class graphic design, signage and printing matched with exceptional customer service, a match made in San Diego.

Mullings Family to Donate Birthday Card for Jamaicas 50th Year of Independence, Signed by President Barack Obama

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) August 06, 2012

University of Miami alumnus David Mullings, Chairman and CEO of Keystone Augusta, his wife, Kathryn, a University of Tampa graduate, and their 6-month old son Luke, had the opportunity to meet and take photos with President Barack Obama in Orlando, Florida, after his recent speech at Rollins College.

They took photos with President Obama, also taking the opportunity to give him a Jamaica50 pin of pride as a birthday present. President Obama turned 51 on August 4th and Jamaica celebrates 50 years of Independence on August 6th. Kathryn, a graphic designer and Chief Creative Officer of Kaizen Interactive, created a birthday card for Jamaicas 50th year of Independence and President Obama signed it.

"We decided that if he did sign it then we would donate the card to the Institute of Jamaica so that it would be in a museum where every Jamaican in the world would have the chance to see it. Some things are more valuable when they are shared," said David Mullings.

It was Davids idea to create the card after receiving confirmation last weekend that they would get to take photos with President Obama. Kathryn obliged and agreed that they should share it instead of keeping it in a private collection.

As Jamaicans who have benefitted tremendously from the US system we could not pass up the opportunity to bridge the two countries. The timing is simply perfect, said Kathryn Mullings.

The Mullings Family will make arrangements to hand over the signed card to Jamaica and a replica will also be handed over to the Consul General at the Official Jamaica50 Gala in Miami on August 18. President Obama is also sending a Presidential Delegation to Kingston, Jamaica to attend the celebration marking the 50th Independence Anniversary. The Honorable General Colin L. Powell, USA (Retired), Former U.S. Secretary of State, will lead the delegation. Other members include the Honorable Pamela Bridgewater, U.S. Ambassador to Jamaica and the Honorable Yvette Clarke, U.S. House of Representatives, New York.
