I’ve been on a cleaning and organizing kick lately. I’ve got one little corner of my studio to go and then my entire work space will be de-cluttered, de-stashed and all the dust bunnies and tiny spiders will be chased out of their homes.
Since printing up the new collection, my in-stock inventory is overflowing a bit, which really works out for you guys, because I’m having a spring cleaning sale! Through the end of May, all card orders of three or more get one additional card free! Choose the card you’d like by including a note to seller at check out, or I’ll just double up on one of the designs you’ve already chosen. Happy shopping!
As you may have noticed, I’m blogging less these days. A whole lot of life has been happening lately—some good, some bad—and I’ve decided to stop feeling guilty and simply write when I can.
Freelance work and owning your own business is unpredictable both in schedule and income and I’m so happy with how the first few months of the year have gone! (Feel free to help me keep it up—lots of new goodies are in my store at the moment!)
But one of my favorite constants is pulling together collections for my monthly Card Club deliveries. I had a few new subscribers this month, so I wanted to send out a variety of goodies perfect for spring. Birds and bees, butterflies and flowers were on the agenda this month! Like what you see? Join the club!
Last week, I sent off an order from my longest standing—and if we’re being honest, one of my favorite!—wholesale client. Driftless Studio has been carrying 622 press goodies consistently since 2009. The owner, Anne, is fabulous to work with—tactile and appreciative of the artsy imperfections of letterpress; decisive and trusting of her intuition when it comes to stocking the shop; and always offering creative ideas to collaborate on pieces she thinks will sell well.
These collaborations have resulted in a few designs that are completely exclusive to her shop as well as small tweaks on existing designs—like our Best Day Ever cards in a bunch of new colors! I printed extras for my etsy shop as well, so get a multi-pack here, or individual cards here, here and here.
The best part about having such a long-standing relationship is that Driftless still stocks a number of designs I haven’t had a chance to print recently. With more than 100 unique cards, it’s hard to keep them all in stock at once, so when the shop needed more nice wheels and magnolia thank you cards, I was all too happy to reprint some for the 622 etsy shop as well.
Yesterday was a very exciting day as I sent out my first Card Club subscription package! An etsy member bought it for her stationery-loving friend’s birthday. Isn’t that so fun?
The subscription is twelve deliveries of handmade letterpress goodies sent right to your door. Each month’s delivery is worth more than $20 and will include an assortment of greeting cards, prints, coasters, bookmarks, recipe cards and more. I don’t want to give away the surprise of what’s all in there, but here’s a sneak peek—plus she also got an exclusive print!
