039 – Boston Marathon and DUI Campaigns: Gaining Visibility with Anita Housman

Anita-Housman-HeadshotFounded in 2009, Treasured Touch helps individuals and businesses create unique, one-of-a-kind items that help brand their business, or give a unique presentation to a gift or special event.

Anita’s specialty is using custom printed ribbon alone and/or incorporated into their gifts. This simple touch of ribbon instantly transforms even the plainest of items into something which leaves a lasting impression of WOW!

Anita lives just outside of Hershey, PA (a/k/a Chocolatetown USA) with her husband, son and daughter, and two spoiled miniature dachshunds.
