Just like Hollywood has its time, so does the Greeting Card Industry.
When you design throughout the year and start planning for Christmas in February, I feel like you’ve earned the right to brag or at least do something to keep your mind off of snowmen and pretty wreaths.
First of all, we are up for two trendy awards. Something I love more than pineapples is brunch. And these two cards hit on these two spots. Stationery Trends brings out the Trendys this year and we are so excited to be in the finals with two of our cards. My love for brunch really came about this past summer when I lived in Manhattan. Each week was best celebrated at a new brunch spot. And I found myself counting the days until Sunday, typically a day not really on my radar, but eventually my love for it grew. Because let’s be honest, I love food!
Secondly, we are a finalist for a Louie Award in the Rising Stars category. This little flamingo has brought our company so much joy. People love this guy on all kinds of products. I’m not a tropics lover, despite partially growing up in Miami, so flamingos took a while to grow on me. In the end, when he’s gold foiled and surrounded by hot pink, I can find the love in a flamingo.
Last year, we were up for a Louie and I took my son with me to the event in NYC. We were up for one in the Christmas card category for our “What the heck is figgy pudding card?” We didn’t win, but had a heck of a time at the Edison Ballroom. To me it’s not always about winning, but the excitement of being in the mix of things. However, winning could help me celebrate more at my next brunch!
