As a book promoter and marketing specialist, I discourage authors from investing too much money on easily discarded promotional materials. I highly recommend your book markers for authors and self publisher's who want their book to be memorable and stand out among other books.

Simply Said/Debra has been an excellent client. She is consistently open to our suggestions and recommendations. Simply Said products are well made and very attractive. As a direct marketer it makes our job to market very easy when the products we market are above the industry. Simply Said’s flagship product – “GiftMark” is setting the industry standard for all other bookmarks.,


Simply Said Reading Accessories also wholesales to book stores and card shops; I have over 300 pre-designed bookmarks in categories such as motivational, religious, wise and witty, children’s, pet lovers, provocative, and more. I do have a perfect one for everyone you know.
