It’s Pinspirational!

28 Jan

Oh Pinterest … how we love thee.   Boards and boards of ideas to inspire creativity in every aspect of your life.  You can find new recipes, decorating ideas, makeup tutorials, outfit ideas and so much more.

One thing we are proud of at The Stationery Studio is our Pinterest boards.  We not only feature our personalized, unique products but complimentary ideas for every board.  I thought it would be fun to have a little Q&A with Amanda who creates our Pinterest boards:

 

Q:  Tell us a little about you and what you do at The Stationery Studio.

A:  I work in the graphics department. We are responsible for the marketing emails that we send to our customers, our website, creating images for the products that we sell, setting up Virtual Preview for our products among other things.

 Q:  How do you come up with board topics?

A:  Sometimes I get asked to make a certain board and I just take it from there, or if I noticed we got a new line of products, such as when we got a new line of pet accessories, I suggested we make a board about pets in order to promote them.

 Q:  What are your favorite boards to work on?

A:  Honestly I don’t have a favorite board, they are all fun to work on! I spend an hour or two during my day on Pinterest. Not a lot of people can say they get paid to be on Pinterest!  If I had to choose a board, it would most likely be the Pets board. Who wouldn’t want to look at cute animals?

Q:  What gets repinned the most?

A:  We have quite a few things that get repinned, mostly from our sorority and wedding boards. Lately our Valentine’s day board has gotten a lot of repins. Some have over 50 repins right now.

Q:  What is your favorite product at The Stationery Studio and why?

A:  Even though I may be too old for them, I really like the stuffed animals. If you see them in person, they are so cute and soft.  When my sister starts having kids, that will be a perfect baby shower gift for me to give.

 

Have fun getting inspired on Pinterest!

Engaged? Helpful Tips on Save-the-Date Wording

11 Jan

Engaged?  Congratulations!  One of the next steps is to send friends and family a Save-the-Date Announcement.   Not sure what to include on your Save-the-Date?  Etiquette expert Sue Fox has the following suggestions to help you with wording whether your style is formal or informal.

 

The format and wording to use

Ensure that you include both names, the date and location of the wedding and since this may be a new concept to some of your guests include an explanation that a formal invitation will follow. The card can be worded quite informally:

Save the weekend of June 19, 2009! Jane and John are getting married!

We’re getting married! You’ll be invited to the wedding that is to take place on June 19, 2009. Please save the date! Jane and John

Joanne Green and Allen Thompson  Please Save the Date!  We will be getting married on July 25th 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts. Invitation and details to follow.

 

A more formal approach for a formal wedding might read:

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Myers,

Please save the date of Saturday, June 19, 2009 for the wedding of Joanne Green and Allen Thompson (or full names for a formal card) in Boston, Massachusetts.  Invitations to follow.

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. William Green
