New Thank You Cards

From the time we started our shop, we've gone through many different ideas and techniques for our care tags and Thank You notes. Most of the time we would just grab blank card, or use a fancy card-stock page for the care tag and thank you note. But none of these looked very polished or professional. The one technique we feel really fits our style is using stamps. So when we saw a large stamp at the store which had Thank You in many different large and small typewriter style fonts, we knew it was perfect.
It matched our logo font of a typewriter style, and was just the right size for a small card. Our original plan was to use a neutral card stock with the Thank You stamp and then paste on a cut out of a bright color with our logo in the front. But as we made the cards, placing our name stamp at the bottom, they looked so crisp and nice that we decided to trust our gut and keep it simple.
Once we decided that, we realized that now we had a huge package of bright colorful cardstock that we no longer had the intended purpose for. But as the saying goes, go big or go home. We made cards of every color in addition to the neutral toned cards.
In the end the grand total came out to 76 cards, each having been stamped three times, for a total of 228 stampings. But the end result was well worth it, I love the way our cards turned out and I will feel proud using them knowing that they were made in anticipation that they will all be used.
No longer will we wait for an order to come in before making a care tag and a card as an after thought, as though we weren't really sure another sale would happen. It's time we started acting with the confidence and assurance that all of our 82 sales have shown us: we make things that people want to buy, and we should be proud of it.

So keep an eye out for one of these cards in your next order, because they were made by hand with the care and appreciation we feel towards all of our customers.
