Sales Literature


If you work with an investment firm, they probably send you a lot of information on glossy paper.

If what they're sending is to drum up business and is sent out to 25 people or more, it's considered sales literature. The investment firm has to follow certain rules about this stuff (like, you know, not lying outright). Sales literature can include form letters, reports, brochures, blood contracts...

If you have insomnia, try curling up with this stuff in bed.
