Happy 2015, dear readers! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, Solstice or Eighth Night, and a fabulous New Year’s eve! I got to spend 12 lovely (if cold) days in Wisconsin visiting friends and spending quality time with my family. It was a much needed visit—I’d been pretty homesick throughout December—but now I’m glad to be home and getting back to work and a normal routine.
I did use the two days I spent in airports to design some readymade wedding invitations. I’ve always created completely custom pieces up till this point, but I understand that can be overwhelming for some couples, and sometimes they get in touch too late and there just isn’t time for several weeks of design. Look for those to be unveiled soon! (And if you’re getting married this summer, don’t wait to get in touch!)
Shipping to Bermuda is suuuuper pricey, so I sent a bunch of supplies to my parents’ house while I was there—including printing plates for a new collection! I’ve decided to freshen things up with two big collections this year, and a few smaller releases for holidays in between. I’m hoping to expand my wholesale market, so if you know of any locally owned shops that would be a good fit for 622 press please let me know so I can send them some samples!
Speaking of fresh—I also ordered new paper to print myself new business cards and note cards featuring 622 press’ new logo, plus new packaging for stationery sets. It was a little bit of an investment, but I’m so excited to finally be bringing the business up to the next level.
And finally, I brought back a few things that I didn’t have space for during the big move, including cards and prints. If you had your eye on something that disappeared last fall, check in to my etsy shop or get in touch, it might be in stock again!
