A few days ago I got a flyer in the mail from Carlson Craft with a note from the Post-it Notes product manager that they were coming out with a new product - Business Card Post-it notes, in the standard business card size of 2.5 by 3. She sent me the info so I could put them up on my site before they are officially unveiled in a month or two.
So here they are! Colors for the paper are white, cream, light grey and canary yellow. Ink colors are black, blue and red, and two color printing is available. I think these are going to be really popular as people hear about them. I'll post more pictures later. I think these are really cool. I'm going to order some for myself!

I found a good article on The Rake about the history of Post-it notes that goes beyond the usual 3M promotional stuff. Our sales of personalized Post-its and custom graphics Post-its have been doubling every six months or so. The more people have them, the more they want them. This article puts them in the cultural context.

Happy New Year! Christmas was a big success for Antonia Rose Printing! We had more than twice as many visitors to the website as last December, although down a bit from this November: over 7000 unique visits!
The conversion rate to sales is low but not bad from my understanding of online web sales in general. Almost all of the Christmas sales were of personalized Post-it notes. The motif on the one to the left is from our Just For Fun postits line.
Almost the day after Christmas, the wedding stuff started picking up, with requests for samples of wedding program fans and orders for wedding napkins and monogram cake toppers. So it looks like an early spring for wedding items.
