From the National Stationery Show in NYC, we have won the 2011 LOUIE award in the "Rising Star" category.
This pleases us. Our thanks to the kind judging panel and their (obvious) impeccable good taste. ;-)
In a stroke of marketing genius, we forgot to post our updated catalogue prior to arriving here in the great City of New York.
Quickest way to view our wholesale catalogue is on the NSS site here.
Or, if you wish to download a pdf, here 'tis
Our line sheets are a condensed version of catalogue and are here. pdf.
We're pleased to announce that our favorite Mother's Day card has been nominated as a finalist in the National Stationery Show's "Louie" competition. This is akin to a Grammy for music or an Oscar for a film. No, there will likely be no "stars" present at the awards ceremony, but being nominated is quite an honor. Here's the proud nominated card.
We are pleased to announce that The Village Invites has become the first retailer for our line of baby announcements. They have just opened a new store at 20 East 13th Street in New York which will have more emphasis on babies than the flagship store at 25 West 43rd Street. Stop in to see the line and meet Nathalie, who sure sounds nice over the phone!
Thanks for your support, Linda and Nathalie.
We tried die cutting cards today. Makes me wonder what took me so long to try yet another task that the Windmill does well. I've mangled many a business card, trying to cut them on a regular paper cutter. So I emailed Bobbie at Key Dies and she graciously helped me through the process of figuring out exactly what I wanted. Once the order was finalized, the die was here almost instantly. That's a great company.
I periodically do calling cards for my friend Hugo in Maine somewhere and this is the product of our first die cutting effort. Just look at those razor sharp and clean edges. It's enough to give you goosebumps. Ok, so this is for a narrow audience, but I'm still pretty excited...
Well, we made it into and out of NYC intact. Stuffed with incredible food, visited by lots of new folks and old friends. Our Father's Day cards were well received as well as our new Dog Wisdom series. Got a lot of inquiries about books for weddings and baby announcements, which we will be jumping on as soon as we get all of our orders shipped out.
Thank you to all who kindly stopped by our booth and super duper thanks to our new customers.
Here's what we looked like, via iphone.
