How to Organize Client Selections {Free App}

One of our most resounding recommendations when it comes to client selections is having a standard structure to serve as your guide when setting up new projects. A standard selections structure is best practice as it allows you to have a comprehensive reference of finishes to ensure every facet of the project is addressed sufficiently.
