A "real store" look at a price you can't beat!

        Your consignment and resale clientele will know you're professional when you look good in print! But graphic designers doing one job at a time cost serious money, money you don't have to spend. To bring professional layout design to you at a reasonable price, we've created sample layouts for you and included tips and ideas on how to use them.

Use our Layouts as a goldmine of ideas and suggestions. Make it your own, using our Layouts to help guide you in developing useful and usable form. Our Layouts will get you 90% of the way towards creating your own unique publication. Ideas like these, developed by a real-life shopkeeper, are invaluable.

Don't struggle to communicate your ideas to a copywriter who has no idea about resale marketing: Use our Layout Kits as your personal source for time- and money-saving guidance! 

Please note: Layout Kits are hard-copy layouts, not software applications. They're for use by shopkeepers who would like professional handouts as a reference to develop a unique layout of their own. The files themselves are not alterable with software word processing programs. And, as with all electronic files, because these files are non-tangible irrevocable goods we do not issue refund after the product is shipped. See our Ordering Info.
