13 May New products on the way
Listen, I’m sorry about being all sell’y at the moment (is that even a word, sell’y? No? But do you understand that I meant that I try to sell a lot? Yes? Ok, good), but I have so many new, fun products in the pipes for you, they just queue up in here and on instagram, you know? Please don’t hate me.
There will be plenty of time for me to take up space, discussing important stuff like my four pillars of areas where I want to change the world – feminism, the environment, body acceptance and stopping the glorification of busy – and wine, obviously. I promise you, this blog will not be short of that, and if you have been following me on instagram you can probably testify to that. But right now there’s just so many things happening, and as I may have the most thrilling, fascinating and lovely personality, I still know that you’re primarily here for the letters.
So on that note, I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of what will be released on Friday, and it’s thanks to you, guys. I try to listen to most of your suggestions and wishes, one of them has been a lettering pad with black paper.
Cool, huh? As my favorite paper brand doesn’t come in colors, I have searched all over for a colored paper that’s:
- Smooth as silk
- In deep and saturated colors
- Kind to the environment,
… and that was a handful to incorporate in one product, I tell ya. But I didn’t give up and now I’ve found it! It’s the deepest black, and is certificated by FSC®, EU Ecolabel and it’s Nordic Ecolabel Inspected. And more so, it’s a dream to draw on, totally pampering to all kind of snobbish and delicate brush pen tips!
I have made a first small batch of pads, size A4+ and A5 – same as my other lettering pads, and I was thinking of making kits with pens suited for the deep black paper, like metallic markers and gel pens and stuff. But you will be able to buy the pads only too, of course, just like the others.
You get to know stuff first!
Now why am I telling you this in here and not on Instagram? Well, you see, the blog will serve as a focus group. I’m going to ask you guys for advice in here, and you will, as a thank you, be the first to know about launches and stuff. I mean, you need some kind of compensation for putting up with all of these rambling thoughts, swears and typos in here, right? And in some cases it could really pay off – like if you’re interested in a black lettering pad with high quality paper, for example. The first test batch I’ve made is rather small as I only ordered a limited amount of paper in order to try it out. And while I’ll probably keep them in stock forever if you’ll like them as much as I do, it will take some time before I can make the next batch due to delivery time, production and so forth.
So that’s why I’m telling you to keep an eye out this Thursday already. I’ll put them up in the shop at approx 3pm CET, but I won’t shout it out on Instagram until Friday, so you kind of get to be the early bird and the black paper will be your worm. Deal?
Oh, and I’m thinking about calling the kits “welcome to the dark side”. Works, right?
Thank you for communicating your thoughts, feedback and ideas to me. It means the world and it shapes my little shop, so that it’s filled with products that suits YOU, which is kinda the whole point of its existence (besides me getting to pack your orders because that’s like the best thing in the world). So if you got something you want to share, you can either write a comment here or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Instagram DMs are hard for me to keep track of, email’s much better if you want to make sure I read it and respond.
Love ya, and welcome to the dark side!
