Newsletters are popular forms of communications with customers and can be regular publications that give a library visibility in this age of self-service internet users. Chris Olson & Associates not only writes and edits newsletters, but we also provide design services, and production support on a regular schedule, taking care of the all the final production tasks, including printing and mailing for paper newsletters, and creating PDF files and e-mail broadcasts for electronic versions. Many times we produce newsletter computer templates where the client drafts the text of the newsletter into the template and we edit and polish the final copy.
