12 Jan 2012 Globe Guard® Die Cut Corrugated Mailers featured in Professional Photographer Magazine!

Professional Photographer magazineWe were very pleased when we found out some of our products would be featured in a leading photographic magazine because we never designed them to be photogenic.

The program is also an excellent way for consumer/subscribers to learn about and try new fair trade or eco-friendly products offered by small- to mid-size manufacturers.
