a really cool diagram Alison
put together this week, depicting her recommended method for
loading up a stash tube of Icehouse
pyramids. We need this diagram in order to give very clear instructions
to the people who'll be

products. By "more complex" I mean "non-card"

decks of cards are delivered in shrink-wrapped boxes, ready to
sell. But it's a different story altogether when the product
is something like a specially-ordered tube filled with custom-made
plastic pyramids, delivered to us by different companies

Oh, and did I mention that we've got spring
