And The Winner Is...

Drum Roll Please...

Anna Marie won a brand new banner from Vital Signs

With pretend drum roll sound playing in your is my pleasure to announce the Vital Signs 1st Quarter Build Your Brand GIVEAWAY! Our winner is: Ms. Anna Marie Gire from Women's Independent Press.

Anna Marie Gire has to be one of the most creative and busy people I know. Each time I speak with her she has her fingers in yet another pie.

Anna Marie Petrarca Gire owned several businesses in Pittsburgh before moving to Champaign/Urbana Illinois in 1985. In Illinois, she worked in a domestic violence shelter and became a Legal Advocate for Rape Crisis Services.

In March of 2003, she began publishing the Women's Independent Press, a general interest newspaper distributed in Champaign/Urbana Illinois and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anna Marie returned to Pittsburgh in August of 2003. In 2005, the Women's Independent Press Newspaper was replaced by the Women's Yellow Pages (WYP) of Greater Pittsburgh.

Women's Yellow Pages of Greater Pittsburgh

The Women's Yellow Pages is a directory publication which features women-owned businesses in the greater Pittsburgh region, as well as articles, hotlines, a legislative guide and more.

In October of 2014, Anna Marie established The Author's Zone, an annual conference and awards ceremony for authors in Pittsburgh, PA.

Ms. Gire resides in Pittsburgh with Sal the Bird and is the mom of two adult children, Vincent and Leann Schmidt. Vincent and his wife Kristy have two daughters, Heidi and Heather. Leann is a web developer and artist, with two happy cats.

I would just like to say that if you haven't advertised in or looked at the Women's Yellow Pages, you should! These are local women-owned businesses that deserve your support. Pittsburgh is one of the most generous cities for charitable giving, so we should equally support our local businesses with that same enthusiastic generosity!

So What Did She Win?

Anna Marie won a 3' x 6' digitally printed color banner!

You can too! Well, maybe not a banner. It depends upon what we are giving away. But if you haven't signed up for our GIVEAWAY...why not? This quarter's GIVEAWAY..just in time for the holidays, is a custom printed canvas (your image of choice)! Please visit the Vital Signs Homepage to get your entry in! And Good Luck!!

In the meantime..if we can help with any of your signage or custom graphics needs, please feel free to give us a call. We're waiting for you.
