New! Looking for a beautiful welcome gift for your upcoming meeting, convention, or special event in DC?
McGuire's newest gift-sized coffee table book is the perfect welcome gift for your event. It is a 6x6 inch, easy-to-take-home, book with 64 pages of McGuire's finest photos, and unlike most tourist type books cluttered with 2 or 3 photos per page this musuem style book has one photo per page with plenlty of "white space" like a museum wall. The book makes a great "Welcome to Washington" item that fits in a goodie bag, registration kit or as a nice suprise in the way of a room drop.
The book is also ideal for your government relations department to give as a PAC donor gift!
Due to flexibility of the digital age, they can be customized with your logo or greeting, AND, you have a choice of beautiful cover shots: The White House or the US Capitol Rotunda. (If you are having an upcoming conference and need speaker or attendee gifts, call Jake for more. 703 888-6320.)
Event planners: If you are in the DC area, McGuire is happy to drop by with samples and show you customization options. Call Jake anytime: 703-888-6320!
The book is big enough for display on a coffee table, end table, or conference room shelf, yet small enough for DC visitors to easily take home. It is the perfect speaker gift for DC conferences, conventions and trade shows, and in this upcoming Inaugural year it makes a nice gift, amenity or memento for firms along the parade route who are having parties, as well as for hotels and any other kind of Inaugural event. The book is the ideal room drop or as a goodie bag stuffer, too for arriving attendees. White gift boxes with a clear lid are available to dress it up for upscale groups like boards of directors, incentive travel groups and for hotel guests during the upcoming Presidential Inauguration.
Are you planning a legislative conference or Fly-In to Capitol Hill to get your group's advocacy message to Congress? Please note that books are specifically exempt from congressional gift bans so your group can leave a book off with every member of the House and Senate. The books can be customized with your logo and greeting so giving out books on The Hill is a novel new way to get your advocacy message in front of members and their staff. Call Jake for details on your custom print options, 703-888-6320.

This is a sample of the 1st page being customized for the DC Convention Bureau (Washington.org) for their campaign to lure a large convention for 2024. They gave members of the deciding board a "taste of DC" with this beautiful book, and guess what? It worked! The group picked DC over competing destinations!
"Jake McGuire's photos in and around the iconic structures of our Nation's Capital capture the history, drama and exquisite beauty of the city that Americans have looked to for inspiration since the time of the Founding Fathers. I highly recommend this book."

New! McGuire has launched a new series of museum quality exhibit posters that make great gifts and marketing platforms for your organization!
McGuire's new panoramic posters make inexpensive decor and great gifts for specific audiences. The striking 27 inch poster of Key Bridge and Georgetown University makes a great gift. The advantage of these long thin posters is that they roll up on the shorter (13 inch) dimension allowing them to be mailed or shipped in a short tube, saving costs.
Also note, the poster has a wide white signing border so Georgetown grads, for example, can have their classmates, roommates, teammates and friends all sign the border, making it an ideal memento! The on-line store will open in early April! Check back often, and feel free to pass this website on to your friends and colleagues. These striking posters can be customized with your organization's message, photo or event announcement! Quantity discounts. Contact Jake for details: email@example.com
Are you planning a DC meeting, legislative conference, Fly- In, or Capitol Hill Day?
Try this effective technique for your meeting! McGuire has created elegant but affordable blank note cards (with envelopes) that associations and corporations give their meeting attendees upon arrival in DC. The sets of cards, not only act as a nice welcome gift, but they also make great 'thank you' cards, to be sent to Members of Congress after your Capitol Hill visits.
Groups that are particularly savy have their conference attendees sit down and hand-write, 'thank you' notes–while they are still in Washington–to be sent to the various Member's offices' they visited.
The 'thank you' note is a powerful follow-up tool to keep your view in front of Congress. And, even in the era of digital media, the handwritten 'thank you' note shows impeccable manners, respect for the Member (and his or her position on The Hill) and a dedication to your advocacy. In short, your hand-written note commands attention, elevating it far above the mass mailings Members often receive.
McGuire suggests a set of 4 or 6 or 8 for each of your conference attendees! They can send some as 'thank you's' to Members and take the rest home as mementos of your conference! e-mail McGuire now for a sample set! firstname.lastname@example.org or call his cell 703 888-6320
" These cards are SO... popular. You wouldn’t believe how many folks just want to take them home with them!! We make them fill them out right there in the debriefing room!"
