I haven't posted in a long time, its been so busy around here. Our traffic is three times what it was this time last year, between the custom Post-its and the wedding program fans and now other wedding items as well. The business card Post-it notes are starting to take off too as people are hearing about them more. The business card size is a great size for coupons as well. And I continue to be amazed with what people can do with the little 2x3 pads. Custom Post-its have not come close to their market saturation level. This time of year the product that meshes our two areas of specialty is the wedding favor Post-it note, which continues to be popular when a pad is used as a favor/placecard.

Yippee! We finally have some Super Sticky Post-it notes we can print on, in 4x3 and 4x6 sizes. The new custom Post-it notes brochure and pricing just came out and it includes Super Stickys. Only in large quantities (over 500 pads), and only in white, but some is better than none!
We also now have 4x4 and 6x8 pads in small quantities for both personalized Post-it notes and custom graphics, so I am pleased to be offering more options again than anywhere else. The pricing hardly went up for the small quantities, but there is now less of a discount as you buy larger quantities. All of our prices are still 15% below retail.

I am appreciating the good service I am getting as part of Carlson Craft's Gold Group this past week as we are being inundated with orders for wedding program fans. It is the start of the busy wedding season (through September) and we have better pricing and way more options for personalization than most companies offering them, so we are busy. They take up quite a bit of time, too, as most of them go through several proofs before printing, so this turns into a full time job for a few months here. I'm not complaining! I appreciate being able to get through to customer service right away when I call now, though, instead of being put on hold or having someone call me back hours later. This shell wedding fan program is a new style for 2006.
