Here are a few more:
true facts
consensus of opinion
small in size
absolutely essential
all-time record
end result
final outcome
future plans
postpone until later
present incumbent
surrounded on all sides
visible to the eye
wall mural

About stanleygraphics

I am a veteran graphic designer who started at the time when cut and paste meant an X-acto knife and rubber cement. I use my experience to educate others. I have an intolerance for ignorance and stupidity.
