The importance of Trackable Shipping

5 Dec

At The Stationery Studio customer satisfaction is of utmost importance.  With the holiday season in full swing, it’s more important than ever.  We are proud that 99% of the items we carry are trackable through UPS or FedEx.  We recently had a customer share her experience with us about the importance of shipping.  We thought we would share with our blog readers as we couldn’t be happier to make her gift buying as easy as possible!

 

“Please pass on to the decision makers in your company my deepfelt gratitude for the fact that Stationery Studio continues to put their customers first. I do the majority of my shopping online and this holiday season, I have noted that many merchants are no longer using traditional UPS and FedEx to ship but are rather using a joint venture service between Mail Innovations. Smart Mail, or Smart Post and the USPS. I am sure that the change was made to be able to lure customers by promises of ‘free shipping” but I can assure you that these joint ventures between UPS and USPS and DHL and USPS is not only deplorably slow but impossible for the consumer to locate their package. When you attempt to locate your package UPS tells you to contact the USPS because they only “handed off the package to USPS” and when you contact USPS they tell you that they are unable to track because these handoffs are transferred in massive volume at postal hub centers. I have even spoken with my Postmaster and she advised me that USPS finds the service nightmarish because the frustrated consumers such as myself place the blame on them for the late deliveries. I have been a longtime and very satisfied customer of Stationery Studio and this is not only because of the quality products you offer but also because of the exceptional customer service(including shipping methods) that you offer. Thank You !!” Liz B

Make Campers Happy with Personalized Gifts

9 May

Getting ready and packed for overnight camp can be a challenge for parents trying to help campers feel at home while away at overnight camp.  Personalized camp gifts not only make campers feel special, but help their camp goods from getting lost in the cabin shuffle.

Encourage campers to write home the old-fashioned way.  Since most camps ban e-mail and text correspondence, your campers will be thankful to have his or her own personalized stationery sets.  Fun note cards encourage campers to put pen to paper this summer.  These fun, unique camp designs in flatcards or foldovers will be the envy of kids’ bunkmates. Clipboards are perfect to lean on when writing and keep notes from home together.  Parents should pre-address the envelopes and use pre-printed return address labels or custom stampers.

Label everything with easy solutions.   Whether parents choose to sew or iron on names, TheStationeryStudio.com makes it easy and takes the headache out of labeling for camp. These 100% soft cotton iron-on labels are great for the identification of campers’ clothing.  Whatever option parents choose for labeling is made easier if they plan ahead and get prepared with this variety of options.

Buy personalized towels and wraps.  Fashion meets function when kids head to the lake or showers with our personalized wraps and unique monogrammed towels.  Theirs won’t end up in the lost and found.

Make sure kids have what they need for organization and identification. Personalized laundry bags and custom cosmetic cases are a great way to ensure that what is sent to camp comes back home clean (or at least these bags keep the dirty laundry contained)!  Don’t forget luggage tags so the bags get to and from where they need to go.

Add some extra special fun items  to help ease homesickness.  A personalized pillowcase will help campers into a peaceful slumber after a long day.  Diaries and writing journals are also a special item that will help campers write about their feelings of independence during rest hour and make special keepsakes, which will last a lifetime.

Make sure that your campers can keep in touch with their camp friends after summer. “Stay in Touch” personalized calling cards are a quick way to remind new friends that they can correspond all year long until they meet again.
