New and Easy to Order Christmas Cards

10 Dec

Autofill Holiday CardsHoliday cards are now easier than ever to order at TheStationeryStudio.com with the introduction of our new auto-complete forms!  On all Christmas cards, Holiday cards and Hanukkah cards, an easy-to-use form will appear when you select your item asking you to complete a few basic tidbits of information.

Once you submit the little form, your holiday text will fall into the order and with a few final clicks, it’ll be ready for you to submit.

If it’s a photo card, just upload your photo(s), pick your quantity and envelope preferences and it’s all finished. When you click “Create Preview to Order” your card will be ready to order.

If you are someone who would rather play with the size and spacing of your text, those tools are available too.  On many items there are other features you can customize too such as the shape of the cards, including rectangle, rounded corners, scalloped edges or medallion cuts.  We offer those die cuts at no extra charge which is added value.

And, if you ever have any questions on ordering, our customer support team is available to personally assist.  Feel free to call at 847.541.5800.  Our quality, selection, customer support and, of course, our finished product will impress you.

Happy holidays!

5 Ideas for Giving Back This Holiday Season

7 Dec

The holidays are fast approaching and everyone is so busy getting ready.  Holiday cards, presents, parties, baking (need I go on?).  The holiday season is also about giving back to those who may not be so lucky to be “busy” with all the things so many of us take for granted.  If you’re feeling inspired to give back but not sure where to start, here are a few ideas that may inspire you:

  • Host a food drive where you work.  You can set up a collection box or site and have employees deliver the items to your local food pantry.  Be sure to contact your local food pantry ahead of time to see what they are in most need of.
  • Host a blood drive where you work.  There is almost always a blood shortage and most blood centers offer mobile services.
  • Sign up to help with your local soup kitchen.  Helping those in need where you live is a great way to connect with your community.
  • Call your local pet shelter and see what supplies they might need (they often are in need of newspapers, blankets and towels).  You can clean out your linen closets and help a charity at the same time (win win!).
  • Donate your gently used coats to those who don’t have any.  Many churches and local food pantries accept donations.  You can always find a drop off center at One Warm Coat.

I hope these ideas inspire you to give back this year!  The Stationery Studio hosted a food drive for our local food pantry this year for #GivingTuesday.  We were honored to help those in our community where we work and many of us live.  Along with the food donated, TheStationeryStudio.com gave a monetary donation to help with items they need to stock their shelves.
