1.6 Our Message

Pleased to meet you... We wanted a message that had some ‘legs’. That could last the distance the needed and enable us to get more than one message across without getting boring & most of all it had to be simple! ‘Pleased to Meet You..’ not only lets us introduce ourselves – it also says thank you, tells people we can do the job & welcomes them back again.
