Aligning with the company's official domain name, WORDPIX.COM, principals at
Wordpictures have moved to change the company's name officially to Wordpix
"In the past, clients and
colleagues have not easily associated the Wordpictures name with our domain
name of Wordpix," says Peggi Ridgway, owner and founder. "Although
we enjoyed our unique Wordpictures name for eleven years, even trademarking
it at one point, we were not able to obtain it as a domain. We feel that
assuming the Wordpix name clarifies everything and puts us right where we
want to be -- creating a wide range of solutions for small businesses and
making it easy for people to find us online."
Address Change. At the same time, the company
has moved its official mailing address from a postal box in La Mirada, a
neighboring town, to P.O. Box 218, Buena Park, CA 90621-0218. The address
move was made to more closely identify this Buena Park-based business.
Wordpictures principal Peggi Ridgway has been named editor of the bi-monthly
The Bloomin' News the official publication of The Los Angeles Flower Market of the American
Florists Exchange, Ltd. Ms. Ridgway is an award-winning writer and
