Votes, upcoming events, paper line announcements, Mother's Day & more...
Happy Spring to everyone in the Northern Hemisphere! And may it be a tolerable winter for those in the South! Spring means many things to this paper mill and that is vendor season, fresh harvests (sources of paper fiber, natural dyes, inclusions), outdoor paper-making (free up electrical usage through sun-drying!), and overall a lot of rewarding work. I wish you all a pleasant Spring and encourage many hikes through the woods.
Some things for April:
- FedEx Small Business Grant
Tomorrow (5 April) is the last day to vote for Petrichorpaper in the FedEx Small Business Grant contest!!!! Two opportunities (today and tomorrow) left to vote! Each vote brings me one step closer to at least being considered for one of eight grants. Please consider sharing this with friends, family, social media as well. Every vote counts and can possibly bring me to the next level of the contest.
Receiving ANY of these grants will be such a tremendous help in helping me to grow my business.
Thank you to everyone who has submitted a vote! Keep it up!
- New Shop Items
Later this week I will be adding a couple of new lines to the shop. Be on the lookout for:
Stock is limited so don't wait too long if you're interested. Until then, Taffy is currently available.
- Wedding updates, collaborations, Mother's Day Special
The Rochester Indie Weddings Spring bridal show wrapped up a couple of weeks ago and it was a wonderful time. Marital bliss in the making and I am happy to be a part of it. With that said I have updated my website to include wedding quotes. You can find them here.
I have also begun collaborative work with Ink + Matter, based in Buffalo, for all of my calligraphy requests.
That leads me to wrap things up with an announcement about our Mother's Day Special. From now until April 17th I will be offering a heart & message deal. For 30-35$ you can get your mother a personalized handmade paper heart. Hand-crafted paper & hand-crafted lettering all for your dear mother. What could be better?! To place your order you can visit my online shop or if it's not yet listed email me so I can be sure to get things moving.
