Feel free to give me a call directly at 720-566-7278 or email me at IN THIS ISSUE: O ne brief, overwhelming, emotional, exciting year ago, we launched GRAPHICS PRO. We launched it shortly after being sent home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We launched it via Zoom meetings, Slack chats, hundreds, no, thousands of emails and phone calls. We launched it while watching the world face many failures and many victories. We launched virtual trade shows, scheduled phone calls just to "check in," and worked as hard as ever to make sure you all received the support and education you needed to keep your businesses going. And in turn, we heard back from all of you: stories of sur- vival, news of fundraisers and helping hands, even updates on growth and expansion. It's hard to believe that just one short year ago, I sat down to write the first editor's col- umn for this publication. It was not an easy year, not by a long shot, but it wasn't wasted, either. While we are not out of the woods yet when it comes to the global economy and pandemic effects, we seem to be moving in the right direction. We hope to continue to be a part of that movement. We continue to move forward, to work hard, to help each other through the good and bad. As I look forward to a year that promises just a hint of normalcy, I anticipate I'm not alone in the feeling of holding your breath yet knowing the exhale will be long and good. Continue to look to these pages for many years to come for support, education, a fun story or two, and much more. Until next time.
