Are you a PowerPoint Ranger? Be proud!

Poor PowerPowerPoint patches of honorPoint. This stalwart workhorse has been around for over two decades, supporting business presentations and facilitating communication for millions of people.

Here’s where the magic happens.

From “PowerPoint Ranger” and “Slide Monkey” tabs to patches proclaiming your hours of PowerPoint service, there is something for every PowerPoint afficionado(a) on your gift list.

If you or someone you know is a beaten-down Slide Monkey, reward all of that hard work with one of these fine patches!
