Happy Holidays!

I know, I know, Halloween was just yesterday, but I’ve been working on holiday cards since August and I just can’t wait any more! My goal is always to have my Christmas cards written before Thanksgiving before things get too busy with the holidays, so for you fellow early birds, the 622 press holiday collection is now available!

I’ve brought back a few old favorites of course, but what I’m most excited about is all the new designs this year! I’ve been working with a lot of calligraphy-inspired fonts and hand lettering lately, so of course those informed many of the new designs.

I wanted to make sure I offered a card for every customer, so while some designs would appeal to a more traditional customer, others are simple and modern, while still others lend a bit of levity to the holiday season.

I also wanted to make sure I offered cards for those who don’t celebrate Christmas or don’t adhere to the religious aspect of the season (or simply don’t want to send out a card that does), so I’ve got some nondenominational salutations that are pretty darn funny if I do say so myself.

New Retailer: Woods Grove

A few weeks ago, I took the plunge and signed up for etsy wholesale. It costs a bit to get started, so I’ve been putting it off, but I’m happy to report its already paid off!

I’m so excited to welcome Woods Grove to the 622 press family! This Brooklyn boutique carries antiques and handmade goods, as well as a great selection of greeting cards and stationery. The shop is beautiful and feels just like I hope mine does someday.

November Card Club

Well, Halloween has come and gone so it’s officially ok for me to start posting holiday goods! It was all I could do to keep them under wraps this year. As holidays go, Halloween is one of my favorites, but business-wise, there’s just no beating Christmas!

COTM_1115_9657First up, of course, is November’s card club! I got these in the mail last week, so my subscribers should have plenty of time to write family and friends a heartfelt note. I hate Black Friday traffic and the terrible qualities it brings out in my fellow humans, so I that’s the day I usually spend writing cards. What are your holiday card writing traditions?
