Firstly Happy 19th Birthday Katie xox
Girls, thanks so much for your comment, over 60 of you took the time to guide me on this. Most of you wanted Angel Eyes but there is already a stamp line out there so we will not be stamping on toes.
Sassy designs was my favourite but after googling it, its too over used in lots of trades .
So many of you came up with other ideas and I did play with them in my head too. But I was going to stick with Just Sassy as a lot of you chose that one. Once you see these stamps and fall in love with them it will not matter so much what they are called. Next step is online promotions followed by packaging and logo's. Oh I am learning as I go so be gentle with me as I explore the mind field which is DTP.
I would like to give the blog a make over as we approach our birthday and especially as we are growing up a little each year. If you have found a fab blog template site, please share, I will now go an spend the rest of the afternoon looking at options for a new look.
And for those of you who asked, yesterdays comments do come under market research and is top secret for my eyes only, thanks again for all your lovely comments, encouragement and suggestions , they truly are appreciated.
Shout out to Cheri who made very valid points about DT, I try my best to pick fresh new talent but its not long before they are asked to take part in other DT's, I really appreciate my team , they are amazingly talented and I am only too happy to see them move on to other things, it allows me to bring some one new to the table and hopefully with a new style too. I always say if your DT work is a chore move on, this is a hobby not a job, if its not fun don't do it.
Cathy, its a standing joke with my friends that my tongue will not work around sassafras, that paper brand was a nightmare for me LOL, its a word we don't know well in UK.
I had settled on Just Sassy, its grown up enough but then I remember that hopefully before the end of this year we have a completely new range coming which is amazingly artistic and its label is Simply Adorable, so I think we should call these Simply Sassy. Decision made, lets move on and think about our new Christmas stamps again.
New Christmas stamps are few and far between in the HOS, we thought that you would rather have more stamps with a longer shelf life and have limited the seasonal ones this year, we still have some great stamps for the festive season from last year when they arrived a little later than planned.
I have to go now, into town to show all our new artwork to Mark at Funkykits and see what he thinks of it all, our rubber factory is backed up out the door with all the work they do for so many rubber stamp companies that delivery is taking 2/3 weeks at the moment, not good but at this time of the year our trade goes into over time, but at least it will go quiet in November and December when all other retailers are
running around like mad things. Oh the joys of the holiday season.
Enjoy your day and again , thanks girls for all your advice and encouragement, it means a lot.
