Be Wise
THE wise business man knows that his printing
affects to a great extent the success of his busi
ness. He knows that his stationery should be just
right and that his books and office blanks must be
well made. Also, he knows that it is not the part of
wisdom to buy "cheap" printing. "Cheap" printing
is usually worse than no printing. There is a limit
below which the price of good printing cannot go,
In getting job printing, the first consideraton should
be quality. At the Mlssoulian Print Shop you will
get good printing and the price you will pay will be
the lowest consistent with good work. When you
get into the realm of "cheap" printing, you got poo
material and Indifferent workmanship. Either
these will spoil your work and the two of them
gether will give you somehhing of which yq& w
ashamed. Send your order to the 'hme p.5uit
and get good material, good workmanship #n&
job, Al.o you will have tle satisfaltion of,
your money at home. ,
