Valentine's Day is 1 Month Away!

Valentine's Day is only a month away. I know a lot of people don't love Valentine's day and think it is a commercial holiday, however I think the month of February needs a little pick-me-up and Valentine's Day does the trick.  All week long I've been working on all the things that make being an adult not fun - health insurance, taxes and book keeping.  It's been a downer, so I was super excited to see all these cute monogrammed items just in time for Valentine's Day.  HeartStrings just came out with a ton of really great monogrammed gifts: round beach blankets, seersuck baseball caps, lots of new monogrammed jewelry, monogrammed bags and more!  So call, email or stop by and pick out some sweet gifts for all your loves.

Happy 2017

For any of you who've followed me for a while you'll know that I love to start my year with my new Graphic Image calendar.  This year I had a little helper decide on the color...  

Here are a few things going on:
1.  Although the holidays are over, now begins the time of thank you note writing.  Embossed Graphics, which has great basics, is having a buy one set of 50 notes and receive a second set of 50 notes for free (basically 100 notes for the price of 50).  
2.  Wedding season also begins now.  One of my favorite vendors, Arzberger Stationers, is offering 10% off wedding invitations through February 28th.  
3.  Finally, if you have not yet gotten your 2017 calendar do it now!  

Happy New Year!

Holiday Shopping Card Begins...

The American Cancer Society's Holiday Shopping Card begins on Thursday, October 20th.  This is a great project and I'm proud to say that Hayden Avery has been participating in this seasonal event for the last 10 years +.  Each year The American Cancer Society sells the Holiday Shopping Card for $50, which goes directly to The American Cancer Society.  Then, many local retail stores, restaurants and other businesses in Austin offer 20% off to those with the card.  This is when the holidays actually kick off for me.  Most of my clients order their Christmas and Holiday cards during this event, as well as try to get some of their gifts checked off their lists.  If you haven't participated before please do so.  I am the queen of justifying purchases, and the Holiday Shopping Card equates guilt free shopping in my mind...  I'll just leave you with that (as well as the details).

Holiday Shopping Card
Thursday, October 20th - Sunday, October 30th
20% off all purchases from Hayden Avery
Christmas cards, Stationery, Birth Announcements, Invitations, Monogrammed gifts, Etched Monogrammed Barware,
Wedding Invitations, Monogrammed Cocktail Napkins
and more...

Christmas Card Specials

Once again, to motivate all of us out here with really good intentions, a lot of our vendors are offering specials on Christmas/Holiday Cards.  As the saying goes, "The early bird gets the worm"...
1.  Crane is offering 10% off all of their photo cards, corporate cards and traditional Christmas cards. As always they have some lovely engraved cards.
2.  Page Stationery is also offering 10% off their holiday cards which includes both digitally printed and letterpress and foil stamped cards.
3.  Checkerboard is offering FREE return address, which is actually a great deal!

I would just like to add here that I am obsessive about making sure that each of my clients has a unique Christmas card that makes a statement.  I don't repeat greetings or card designs.  I work super hard to make sure that everyone has the perfect card for their photo and their family.  Can I also add here that I LOVE what I do!!!  Here's to another great holiday season.

50 for $99 - Crane & Co. Sale

This fall Crane & Co. is having a stationery sale.  It is somewhat similar to a sale they had a couple of years ago.  It is 50 pieces of thermographed stationery for $99 and then if you want the return address on the envelope flap that is an additional $60.   It is a fun sale because customers are not overloaded with options.  There are 2 colors of card stock to choose from (white and ecru) and then 2 styles of card stock (flat card and a folded note).  Then you select from 8 ink colors and 13 type styles.  Boo - stationery order completed!

This would be the time to do some Christmas shopping.  Call or email me if you'd like to place an order.  The photo above it LITERALLY all of your options - so you could actually pick everything out right from this blog post.
