Crane's


Just wanted to share this book I got...it's got no photos or drawings inside (so, no eye candy). But, it is filled with information on how to properly address all kinds of things as well as how to properly put together different pieces of stationery. It's sort of an Emily Post-ish etiquette book. It's a must-have and acts as a clear reference for me as a graphic designer of stationery. It even tells you how to properly address folks like the President of the United States and all the other members of the Cabinet. Find out more about it here.

Hi again Megan:

If your friend selling his Pearl presses would be interested in shipping, let me know. I'm having a heck of a time finding a Pearl on this side of North America...I have no idea what shipping would cost, so I'd assume it would be sky-high, but who knows...It's hard to find presses that can be moved around without a forklift!

As for the quantity for the craft show, I am totally going in blind. I have no clue how much to bring. I bought about 300-400 different kinds of envelopes, had a whack of polymer plates made, and I'm just trying to print something for every envelope. I'm afraid I might not have enough. If I have too much, I'll probably just try to sell it off on Etsy.

My goal for the craft show is to get exposure and maybe get a few wedding/birth announcement clients. I really signed up for the networking opportunity - my target market lives in the area and has disposable income, so it's perfect for me (I think). If I sell just one card along the way, I'll be thrilled!

Take care,

Erin
