Recently, one of our long-time employees, Shannon, moved on to pursue another career. While we were excited for him, it was bittersweet to part with someone who has been with us from nearly the start. How do you convey your appreciation to a person that committed themselves to working at a small family business? Just saying the words can be nice, but may still lack the impact that matches their service. To thank Shannon properly, we followed the advice we so often give our customers; giving a gift that you take the time and effort to thoughtfully design will stand the test of time. We wanted something that would remind Shannon of how grateful we are for the years he spent at Metal Pressions. After some brainstorming with the team we decided a money clip was the perfect item.
Money clips can be the ideal gift for many occasions, and like our recent recommendation for Key Chains, are great for people who are fashion averse. We chose to create a simple design on the front with our new soldered 14k gold letters. We added a touch of subtle sophistication with a black diamond beside the initial of his last name. On masculine designs we lean toward a clean bolder look.
The back of a money clip has the real estate we needed to add a longer personal message. We hope that every time he takes it and looks at it or just feels the impressions, it brings a smile to his face. The money clip came out perfect and the back says it all.
