The Secret of the Broadsides

When I found out that we were selling broadsides, my first reaction was “What the heck is a broadside?”  Considering I was about to help sell the product, I figured I should probably learn what exactly the product was.  Candide brought out an example for me to admire: a dusty glass encased poem on a large piece of paper.  I can’t exactly say I was impressed. A couple weeks later when I got my first glance of the broadsides Ashleigh was working on however, I quickly gained an appreciation for these pieces of art.  Beautiful backgrounds, elegant fonts, and of course the inspiring words of the poems themselves come together to create quite a masterpiece. Our broadsides are magnificent; I feel no shame in bragging about them. They are the ultimate decoration: both a picture and a poem at once. I am so glad I discovered the secret of the broadsides. Clearly my life will never be the same.
