What a month it has been February started off with the NY NOW, National Stationery Show and Surtex shows. What a whirlwind, besides the fact that I love New York City, I got to sit down with some of our great licensing partners and artists with Carol to review new art and trends to add to our portfolio.
We continued the month meeting with customers and planning for Christmas. I have been reviewing lots of great art incorporated into our Christmas cards. I can hardly wait to see the finished product for this year, but unfortunately I will have to be patient.
We managed to launch our Shopify store, we took the mantra, move quickly, we will continue to improve the look and feel as we become more experienced with the platform and logistics involved with serving this market. We were excited in that we already have seen some sales. Thank you!!!
We have also launched some product on Amazon as you cannot ignore the beast. We will continue to add offerings to both of these platforms over time so check back regularly to see what is new.
We are working through new brands that you should see online and on shelves in the coming months as well as getting into new product lines. We will be hard at work on those new offerings once we come off the Christmas season.
Finally, I will be traveling to India here in March to look at opportunities to strengthen our product line offerings and bring new and novel items to market. Check back as I post from the land where the number zero was invented and I take in a site or two. It can’t all be about business now can it. No I would have to say there have been no winter blahs around here.
