Partner Program Success!
I'm happy to report that I hit my goal of 10 new sign ups by May 31st and actually sent out 12!

I'm going to keep the magic going with two new Partner Program promos for June - a fun raffle prize and some new business-building resources in my Partner Portal so stay tuned! Joining the program is totally free, all you have to do is sign up and you'll get an artsy, hand-made card holder with custom cards AND a cool sticker. Why not sign up now, it's justa few clicks!
