Application approved!

Today I had an unwanted reminder - a bill for 'Top Drawer' a design led Trade Gift Fair in January! I was thrilled to have my application approved but it has made me think new designs, new products and deadlines. Once again I am being driven by deadlines rather that creating in a more relaxed time frame.

But sometimes deadlines are necessary. I have wanted to create stickers now for about 2 years now and pricing has always been my major obstacle. Now dots and spots is getting out to a wider audience and orders are more assured, print runs can therefore be bigger and therefore prices per item are reduced. With a new big show to aim for - deadlines are getting shorter and designs need to be done, however busy I am!

So I have been creating late into the evenings due to time restraints and have been loving every minute. My first set of designs went to the printers this morning and the next set will be started over the weekend. They will be sold as a pack of 2 sheets, 15 designs per sheet so 30 stickers per pack in total. A set for girls and a set for boys to start with and if they sell well there will be future packs in the pipeline.

Well I have to order 10,000 sheets - so only 5000 packs to sell - no pressure.

As and when they arrive at dots and spots HQ, I will let you know and do a little giveaway!
So keep visiting to find out when that will be!
Oh and let me know what you think of them!

oh to be so popular ;)
all your years of hardwork have obviously paid off.

your stickers are lovely - what a great choice of designs. i can see them on the backs of envelopes as seals.

Congrats on your Fair Trade gig - nothing like fresh inspiration to send a person into overdrive.
