Guest Towels for Parties and for The Home

28 Jan

Guest TowelsPersonalized Guest Towels are a great option for many occasions.  I love putting them out on buffets as they are a perfect size whether it’s for a brunch, luncheon or dinner.  I also use them when I set a nice table for a party or holiday.  They add some style and sophistication and of course they are disposable so the clean up is a breeze.

I also love to put Guest Towels out in my powder room for guests to use.  They are pretty and people love using them and it’s so much nicer to use a clean towel to dry hands and then toss out.  They elevate the powder room’s style too and are an affordable luxury.  I also like to give Guest Towels to friends and family for housewarming gifts.  They are usually appreciated and make for a special present.

Bathroom Guest TowelsGuest Towels come in many styles and materials so it’s easy to find just a perfect color, pattern or style for your home, gift or event.  These folded disposables in a tall rectangular size and are available in quality 3-ply solid colors and many specialty materials too.  Their size makes their use very easy when setting a table, buffet or stocking in a powder room.  If you are planning an event at an outside venue, if there is a dedicated washroom for guests they are great to leave in there too.

Some options for Guest Towels are the Solid color 3-plys available in a host of colors, our Linen Like Guest Towels  are air-laid paper and have the look of linen with a thicker, plusher, more luxe feel. The DeVille white guest towels offer a superior finish and absorbency.  The Carte Guest Towels look very fancy and super impressive as they feature a filigree pattern embossed into the napkin creating a unique and impressive design.

For a burst of style and sophistication, there are  Capari Guest Towels.  Thee classic styles are created to achieve a sense of integrity and flair and many patterns are inspired by renowned museum collections. A Guest Towel by Caspari will make a perfect statement for any event.

Then there are the silky feeling Masslinn Guest Towels which add a touch of luxury and made of 100% rayon fibers and have a very soft feel to the touch. The Moire Guest Towels are very pretty too as they feature a subtle wavy pattern within the color.

Guest Towels are perfect for home entertaining, rehearsal dinners, bridal luncheons, anniversary and birthday parties, Christenings, graduations and Christmas celebration.  They are also fabulous at luncheons, a cocktail buffet or a dinner party.  If you are hosting Thanksgiving, Passover dinner, Easter brunch or other celebration, Guest Towels work great setting the table.  Enjoy the sophisticated look and feel at affordable prices with our perfectly printed guest towels.

Best wishes,

The A, B, C’s of Luggage Tags

22 Jun

june-luggageTags

Have you ever wondered the best way to personalize luggage tags?  There is the typical “name, address and phone number” answer but it really depends on how the tags are being used and who will be using them to know what’s appropriate.

Of course luggage tags can be used for suitcases, which is the traditional purpose.  But some other uses include identification of gym bags, backpacks, diaper bags, camp bags, athletic bags, computer bags, ski bags, golf bags, tote bags, musical instrument cases, brief cases and more.  Deciding which type of tag to choose and what information to include depends on the purpose of the tags.

For adults using luggage tags for suitcases while traveling and for other bags being carried by adults, the printed information should primarily include the following information:

(1) Your full name or at least your last name;

(2) A mobile phone number.  If your luggage is lost, the mobile number will be the easiest way to reach you. If there is no mobile number available use a home number;

(3) An email address.  Depending how security-conscious you are, you may consider skipping your primary personal e-mail address and setting up secondary e-mail just for your travel purposes;

(4) An alternate phone number. Consider listing an extended family member’s number who can assist if you are on the road.

Remember, since your luggage is out of your hands when you do short or long domestic or international travel, you do not want to publicize too much personal information. A number of experts suggest not listing a home address, as it can easily alert burglars that you are away from home when they see you traveling.  And it’s very infrequent that anyone would ship or deliver a lost suitcase to your home without contacting you first.

For items being used by teens or adults, the luggage tag should include a full name (or at least last name) and a home or mobile phone number.  If the tag is being used on a young child’s bag, for security reasons, consider simply an imprint such as: “Call (123) 456-7890 if Found” without a name or other information at all to prevent any issues with strangers.

If you wonder what type of luggage tags are best, we would suggest adding brightly colored luggage tag if you use a standard black suitcase.  This will make finding your suitcase much easier as there are usually so many bags that look the same when traveling.  A unique tag might even prevent the wrong party from picking up your suitcase thinking it was theirs.

Luggage tags are a practical and stylish way to make identifying bags easily.  When selecting a luggage tag you might notice different materials, such as laminated, brass, leather, or acrylic.  They are all very strong and useful.  So simply determine a style you feel the user will enjoy.  There are designs and materials suitable for everything from executive travel to a diaper bag!

Moving Mania! Tips for a Stress-Free Move

7 Oct

By Julie L., TSS Staff

There is no place like home.  But, it takes some giant leaps and bounds to make a house a home. In my own experiences, I have dealt with moving from my parents’ house, to my condo, and soon into a single family home. The stress builds quickly with packing, moving, unpacking, organizing, and much more. Here are my tips for the Top 10 Must-Do’s For Your Big Move. These quick and easy steps will help you and your family prepare for the big move.  I’ll reveal my own top product picks that I’m hopeful will help me out on my next big move. The Stationery Studio has it all. So get ready, get set, and get moving with this must-have list of must-do’s:

Before Your Big Move

Make sure you and your family prepare yourselves with all of the necessities. There are things you can put off until later, but these must-dos’s come before your big move.

After you close the deal on your new pad, visit www.thestationerystudio.com and order some new address labels or stampers to get ready to correspond with your new information.

Make your moving lists and check them twice (or three times, four times, and so on) with fun, customized memo pads and post-it notes.  You might even notice the stress melting away as you jot down all of the To-Dos.  Organization and preparation are the keys to a smooth move.

During Your Big Move

While you’re in the middle of packing, relocating, and unpacking, remember place an order for moving cards so that your friends and family know how to reach you.

Fashionable moving cards let everyone know where you will be moving, and serve as the perfect reminder for family and friends to update their address books.

The neighborhood kids are bound to want to meet and play with the new kids on the block, so be prepared to set up some dates with stylish playdate cards to give to your new neighbors.

You, too, will be meeting new friends in the neighborhood while you’re in the middle of your big move. Check out The Stationery Studio’s calling cards to hand out to your newfound neighbors and friends.

After Your Big Move

Aaahhhh! You are all settled in! Now you have some time to relax and enjoy the finer things in life.     Here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure you stay on task.

Add some swag to your house with custom guest towels and napkins. You can personalize the colors, the fonts and the copy to say anything you want!  You will make a great first impression with the neighbors when you serve beverages with your personalized napkins

Don’t forget to plan your housewarming party with stylish invitation cards so everyone can come over and celebrate your big move with you. Open houses are a great way to get to know the new neighbors.

For your party, you can cook and exchange your favorite recipes with your new clique using The Stationery Studio’s classy recipe cards.

Be sure you order new personalized thank you notes to send to everyone who dropped off those awesome housewarming gifts! Order extras for holidays and every day.

 

After all the hum-drum of moving into your new house is said and done, visit The Stationery Studio’s website, www.thestationerystudio.com, to pick out some everyday casual stationery for yourself and the family, customized with your new address.
