Hello beautiful people.
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been busy designing some new cards! It’s been awhile since I went on a designing spree and I was on a roll, so I ended up making over 20 new cards! I’m especially happy to announce that I made some cards specifically for the LGBTQ community! (Sorry that it took so long!)
Check them out:
New LGBTQ Cards
New Birthday Cards
New Belated Birthday Cards
New Congratulations Cards
New Christmas Cards
I’ve also made a few navigational changes to the site. If you’re a regular visitor, I hope you’ve noticed and are finding the site easier to use. If you have any feedback, please let me know in the comments below!
I’m also looking for your input on what products I should potentially add into my catalogue. If you’d like to have your say (and get a discount code as a thank you), follow this link to the survey (which closes August 31st).
Hello beautiful people.
|As you all know, the holiday season is upon us and that means an increase in the amount of mail passing through the system. Add in a global pandemic, extra online shopping, and Canada Post is predicting a very busy year!|
SOOO, order your cards sooner rather than later! Normally I’m able to get orders into the mail within a day or two (maybe 3 if it’s over a weekend), but they’ll need time to get from me (in Chilliwack, BC) to you (wherever you are). Then if you’re sending the cards out to others, they’ll need time to get from you to them.
Just keep that in mind!
|There are over 60 different Christmas cards on my site, (including box sets) as well as a small selection of Hanukkah cards. Or if you’d rather, there are some fun Postcards you could send!|
Looking for something flat to include in your Christmas card?
– Our coasters (there are fun vulgar ones and Walking Dead coasters!)
– Our magnets (there are Christmas ones!)
– Or Postcards make a great gift too!
Want expedited shipping? Want me to write in AND mail your cards for you? Contact me (Nikki) by email (email@example.com) or through one of my social media channels and we’ll have a chat and figure out a cost!
December 9th is Christmas Card Day, which means its time to sit down and write out those Christmas cards! Or if you haven’t gotten your cards yet, you should use today to pick them out! [I know, I know, we have too many to choose from (almost 70!), but to make your shopping easier, we have Box Sets and Holiday Mystery Bags available!]
Being a stationery company, we can’t NOT send out cards, so I know what’s on my agenda for today!
PS- Calendars are officially SOLD OUT and several of our coaster designs are out of stock, but there’s still some left if you’re looking for gifts!
Hey everyone, Nikki here (ya know, the super awesome and talented designer/writer/manufacturer of all the products here on this site). I just wanted to take a quick second to update you all on my plans for this Christmas craft show season. I’M NOT DOING ANY SHOWS! I know, I know… you were really looking forward to seeing me and spending a ridiculous amount of money on my cards! Well, the good news is that you can find my cards in retail shops across Canada (use the Retailer link) OR you can buy online right here and right now spend as much money as you’d like! There are over 60 different Christmas cards, a handful of Hanukkah cards, and over 70 Birthday cards (and various other cards and stationery items like our limited selection of calendars!) that you can buy 24 hours a day from the comfort of your own home (or office. I know 90% of you are probably at work right now).
So why the fuck am I skipping out on shows this year? Cuz I need a goddamn break!
I founded this company back in January of 2007 (though it was really created in late 2006) and by the fall of 2007 I had entered the craft show scene with Portobello West. I did that show for a number of years and slowly started adding other shows to my roster like Make It (Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary) and the One of a Kind Show in Toronto (and for awhile Vancouver) and all sorts of other shows in between. Every single year for the past 12 years I’ve been doing shows at Christmas!!! The most memorable was November 2013 when I was 9 months pregnant and busy packing my crate to ship to Toronto for the One of a Kind Show. Obviously I wasn’t able to do that show myself, so I hired some wonderful folks to work the 11-day show for me. A few hours after the truck picked up my crate, I went into labour! So while my staff were in Toronto setting up my booth, I was at home in B.C. with a 7-day-old baby! Of course that didn’t excuse me from work… I still had daily check-ins. The only year I have not done a show at Christmas time was in 2014… you can blame my kid for that one.
Over the course of the last 12 years of shows, I’ve had some crazy shit happen while I’ve been away. There was the year my grandma was on her death bed while I was in Toronto (you may have seen me crying in my booth that year). There was the year my father-in-law was diagnosed with cancer (you may have seen me cry in my booth that year too). The year I had bronchitis (you may have seen my cough my lungs up that year)…. Or how about the year I was recovering from a broken rib and almost didn’t make it to the show at all? OR last year when I pulled my back setting up my booth and I could barely move? (Thank god for neighbours with drugs!) I won’t even get into the chaos that happened earlier this year during the By Hand Show in January and the One of a Kind Show in March… Let’s just say it was terrifying, but I’m still alive.
So, I need a break.
If you’ve read this far, then I think you can understand my need for a year off of holiday shows! And you can’t be too mad at me, because you can find every card you could possibly want right here!
PS- Did you know that you can comment on my posts? I just realized the other day that I’ve only ever had spam comments. Someone wanna pop my comment cherry and help me test this feature out?
Whether we’re ready for it or not, Christmas is coming! We’ve been busy stocking our retailers with Christmas cards over the past couple of months and now it’s your turn! You still have loads of time to figure out what cards you need (I suggest you make a list of all your friends and family members, then cross off the losers that don’t have a sense of humour…. the remaining people get a Hug and Kiss card!) Our orders typically ship within about 3-4 days of the day you placed it, so if you’re living outside of Canada and then sending the cards to your friends in other international destinations, then you should order soon to insure you have plenty of time for delivery! If you’re in North America and the cards are staying in North America, then there’s no need to worry just yet. It’s only November for crying out loud!
A friendly reminder that WE WILL NOT BE AT THE ONE OF A KIND SHOW IN TORONTO THIS YEAR. NOT! Won’t… it’s negative. We won’t be there. We will be home. SO ORDER ONLINE!
Hey wholesale accounts… Please remember that the deadline for your Christmas orders is coming up on October 15th! Any orders placed after the deadline will still be processed and shipped, but stock isn’t guaranteed to be in, so you may have to wait an additional 7-10 days on top of the normal lead time. So do your best to get your order in right away!
Also, calendars are only available for wholesale orders up until October 15th!
