Electric Idea- October

Monday, October 15, 2012

There was a “time” when “hot off the presses” really meant something in the world of printing right? Not a “time” that our juvenile employees remember, surely, but there are some in the office who stare off into the distance, eyes hazed, remembering way back when.

Well, you’ve been waiting for the October edition of Electric Ideas haven’t you, and it’s hot off the presses waiting for you too!

The options are endless.

Happy trails!
Power. Current. Grounded.
