Now is the time to get your holiday cards, gift tags, photo Christmas cards and personalized gifts ordered! We can get everyone checked off your list - teachers, neighbors, husbands, wives, babies and children. Call or email me for pictures and ideas.
Tomorrow night (11/15) I am having a Holiday Card open house with a dear friend, Whitney Roebel, who is an Arbonne consultant. I'll have gift tags and Holiday Card ideas. Whitney will have a selection of Arbonne products (as well as some cranberry Margaritas). Please join the two of us for a fun evening. Email, call or text me for the address.
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).
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.
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.
There are a few sales that are taking place right now. The first is that Page Stationery is offering 10% off of all custom stationery (digital and letterpress). It is through this month, so you still have a few days to place the order.
The second is Julie Holcomb Printers is offering 15% off your holiday cards if you order before the end of September. These cards are incredibly beautiful and make such a lasting statement. I've written about Julie Holcomb before Here and Here
Time to order personalized stationery for your camper. You can order camp specific stationery, with their camp name, tribe, camp colors, etc. Or you can just select a cute design that they can use year round. Camp stationery can be designed and printed within 4-5 business days. You can select any quantity - as low as 10 up to as many as you want (the more you order the more cost effective it becomes). A set of 10 printed cards with blank envelopes starts at $18. I can also wrap and ship this to your camper!
Give me a call or shoot me an email and I can start designing your campers' stationery.
I am always on the hunt for fun wrapping paper that can be used for envelope liners (because that means that I don't have to design it and print it myself). So let me tell you how stoked I was when I found the above wrapping paper. The scale is perfect for stationery and let's be honest it's a great wrapping paper too. If you want to buy any from me it is $8 a roll and it is a big roll. With that being said, I immediately found a use for it.
I think this is a fun combination of sweet and sassy and modern. I think it is really going to be a versatile paper and am so excited about it. Let me know if you want some!
