Guess what just got delivered?!
Hi Everyone! Sorry it's been about a month since my last blog post. There has been so much going on behind the scenes it's crazy. The calendars have just arrived in the port of Chicago! I will be receiving them at some point, in hands, this week. The amount of logistics that go on behind the scenes is crazy.
This is my first time importing the calendars. I've been very proud to have been able to afford to design and print in the US with all the previous calendars. Sadly, with the addition of shrink-wrapping and cardboard stiffeners, the cost became too prohibitive to print here. After shopping around for quite a while, I was able to find a manufacturer in China who was able to produce extremely high-quality calendars. My printer is a small print house who's trying to get a fitting in China. They cost more than the competition, but it feels good to be helping out a more modest print shop get on their feet.
This next week I'm going to be sending calendar samples off to buyers for stores like Urban Outfitters, Spencer's Gifts, Barnes & Noble, etc. I'll be sure to let you guys know if/when the calendars will be available in brick and mortar stores.
Thanks so much, guys! Love you! I'll upload pics of my finished calendars soon ;)
