I learned something new and saved money

I had asked a buddy some time ago to make me some postcards for a mail out I wanted to do.  These postcards would let existing clients know where our new office is located and hopefully would keep my company in mind during tax time.  I hadn't heard from my buddy for awhile so I took matters into my own hands.
 
Over the weekend I bought an inexpensive software product which lets you create among other things a postcard.  I had to invest about half a day to get the hang of the software but voila, I created a postcard ready for a mail out this week.
 
I also learned how to create labels (yes probably very simple to most of you) so all I have to do is stick the labels on the cards and walk them down to the post office to be mailed.
 
Originally, I had received a quote of around $300 for the postcards if a shop did the work.  With supplies and software, I am able to create two different cards for right at $125.  Certainly money was a consideration but I am so proud to have learned a new skill.
