NEW YORKER-STYLE CHRISTMAS CARD
New York City Rockefeller Tree Christmas Card – “They missed a spot.” by Pat Achilles
Box of 8 Cards & Envelopes. I drew this cartoon last year for my family, in the classic New Yorker black & white style, not long after my first cartoon appeared in the New Yorker. If you’ve ever seen this iconic tree you never forget its overwhelming beauty! My drawing shows the iconic tree in NYC ablaze with lights except for one small dark area, and a child pointing to it, saying: “They missed a spot.” Please click on the 3 closeups above, to see details in the drawing. My Christmas card is printed on sturdy matte card stock, 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, with a white envelope included. The card makes a great impression because it is a little larger than most greeting cards, but it still only requires standard first-class postage. The cardstock is made from partially recycled paper and the cards are printed in the USA. A standard box has 8 cards and 8 envelopes, other special order options are described below.
The inside message, printed in red ink, is:
May your Christmas be filled
with Peace and Joy
and a thousand twinkling lights!

Thank you for Sending Business My Way Notecards
I’ve used my “Thank you for sending business my way” notecards for years to thank people for referring me in my own business, as do some of my clients. One business owner, Marlene S., writes:
“In my business, it is extremely important to thank my referral sources for their referrals because all of my revenue is generated by them. Pat’s “Thank you for sending business my way” card conveys my appreciation in a lighthearted, yet professional way. The cards are of good quality and are delivered in a timely manner. I’ve been using them for years and expect to continue. In this day and age, when a simple and genuine thank you is often overlooked, I like to think that my referral sources can sense my gratitude.”
