This will be our third year exhibiting at the National Stationery Show (NSS), and it starts in just 18 days! Last week, I made a calendar to keep track of all the little things that need to be completed before we leave for the show on May 15. You guys, there are so many little things! This calendar is a lifesaver, and it’s really helping me stay sane.
Exhibiting at a trade show is a lot of work, and keeping track of all of the details can be daunting. Crossing things off the list is majorly satisfying! My little spur-of-the-moment calendar helps me visualize just how much I’ve done in a week (and also how close the show is!).
So, what am I working on right now? Well, I’m putting together the pre-show mailers that we’ll be sending to retail stores and press. They’re basically an invitation to come visit our booth at the show, and I’m really excited about them. The mailers are two pieces, and I’m tying them with twine to make a pretty little package. My mom’s going to address the envelopes with a pretty silver pen. Her handwriting is fancier than mine. Thank goodness for moms!
I’ll share the mailers when they’re complete, so stay tuned!
