The Road To Barneys

on December 22 | in Blog, Marketing, National Stationery Show | by | with 2 Comments

By now most everyone who knows us is aware of the fact that Sky of Blue Cards is the exclusive letterpress card line sold in Barneys New York stores across the country. We are so proud of that fact that we’ve basically yelled it from the mountain top for the past 6 months. Here is a little photo essay of our road to Barneys, including a very sweet note from my daughter on the day that we received the actual PO. Also included is our “Barneys Packaging Party” where ten or so of my BFFs came over and packaged up boxed cards, hundreds of them. Here you go – enjoy!

Boxes ready to ship out.

Off they go! Hundreds of boxed sets of cards, carefully wrapped and ready to ship out to Barneys New York stores on Madison Ave. and in Chicago, Beverly Hills, Dallas, and Scottsdale. August 27, 2012 was the ship date (and my late mom’s birthday – which made it perfect).
