    I am wanting to send out an E-mail to my customers to make them aware of the discontinued items. I will be attaching th flyer with pictures . I will be mailing out mini-catalogs to my preferred customers, and including the list, but I cannot possibly mail them out to everyone. Does anyone have any ideas what I should say in the E-mail?

    You know what I did? I went to my website and went to Customer Connection. Sent an e-mail to ALL of my customers telling them to go to my website and where you put in more information, copy and paste all the discontinued items in there. I'll see if I can copy and paste what I did on here. Give me a minute! Oh, I did have 4 people now e-mail me telling me that they want some of the retired products! Oh, that's one more thing, I say retired and not discontinued!

    That's a great idea! What part of your website do you put this in? My News?

    Do individual orders get the small batter bowl free or does it have to be associated with a show?

    It HAS to be associated with a show. If they go to your website and just send in an order, they will not get it. Sorry.

    I think it must be all web orders! I had someone want to order online from a show a couple days ago, but it wouldn't include the batter bowl. So she called the host & asked her to just come get her order so she could get it for free. I told her it was okay, since I have to input the orders anyway, I would have given it to her....but I didn't realize it wouldn't show it online.

    It does show online, but they have to add it to the cart themselves. It doesn't just magically show up.

    Kristi~ I checked out your website and really liked where you had the information about visitors using your site. How did you get some of your text to be bold and underlined? I've been looking everywhere and can't figure it out. Can you help>

    I sure can help! Here is how you bold: <b> and you underline like this: <u>

    Hope that helped!!

    I know exactly what you're talking about. I can't seem to figure it out. I've even done <b> before the sentence and then put another at the end of the sentence <b> and it doesn't stop it from continuing it. If you can figure it out, I will be thanking you!!

    I do not know hoe to get around the <b> thing either.. I just use a blank e-mail or MS word to type up what I want to say and the copy and paste it into the box provided for the "NEWS"
    Hope that gives you another option....
