The National Stationery Show is just about one month away!! (Try not to panic.) The show, which is held at New York City's Javits Center, is the world's most complete marketplace for greeting cards and stationery. Stores and buyers come from all over the country to take their pick from what is the largest selection of paper goods in the United States. It has been a dream of mine to exhibit here since I first walked its aisles back in 2007…before filing Love Jac as a business, before winning PowerUp, and before The Brooklyn Flea. I was like a kid in a candy store - booth after booth of beautiful and fun greeting cards – It was my stationery heaven. In 2011 when I drafted my business plan, The National Stationery Show was on top of my list of goals and ironically, or some might say fatefully, I scheduled it for 2014. Which brings us to today! The cards are ready, our booth has been designed, and we’ve even ordered some Love Jac pens to help promote our line.
We would like to bring you along this journey with us! We will be instagramming and tweeting as we count down to May 18th!!
We would also like to ask you for your help as well. Here’s how….
GET LOVE JAC INTO YOUR FAVORITE STORE
Do you have a favorite stationery or gift store that you wish sold Love Jac Cards? Now’s your chance to help us make it happen!! Send an email to email@example.com and we will mail you a post card that you can bring to the shop or we can mail it to them directly. The post card will let them know where to find us at the show. The Jacob Javits Center is enormous and we want to make sure no one misses Booth #1365.
STOCK UP ON YOUR CARDS NOW!
The other way you can help is by stocking up on your greeting cards now. The National Stationery Show isn’t cheap!! The more cards we sell online, the more money we will have to put towards those expenses! Think of it like a kickstarter where you get exactly what you pay for.
At least once a day I find myself thinking, “How awesome is this that we have made my dream a reality.” I feel so blessed to be able to be a mom and run my own company. We are very grateful for all your support. Thanks for helping us make Love Jac into what it is today. We look forward to experiencing what it will be tomorrow! Let’s continue to go on that ride together.
