Mortgage Brokers Loans Real Estate Insurance Bank Floor SE Cor State & 31st Sts Chicago Telling A Story To friends who know you, you may be easy, but "putting one over" to strangers may be quite different. Telling a busy, business man about your services or your merchandise is still less a "cinch," for he hears the same story every day a dozen or more times. A clever speaker, before a sleepy or hostile audience, puts a good, stiff punch into his very first remark. This "knocks 'em off their feet" and they listen. Your business letters may be good, but if they lack the "punch" they won't "pull." Correct business stationary is the "punch" that hits the busy man "right in the eye" and makes him read your letter. We'll show you the sort of stationary we create, if you write us. We print for Mr. Conde Nast, of Vogue; we print The Crisis. Robert N.
