I’ve been very bad with keeping the Letterfest blog up to date, but I have a good excuse – I’ve been too busy fulfilling all the orders. Since our launch on Not on the High Street, sales have gone through the roof, so its been work, work, work. Here are some highlights from the last few months.
We’ve been in the Not On the High Street Summer Catalogue – picked as one of the founder’s favourite items. This is great PR, and showcases the datestone as a great gift for christenings, birthdays and weddings.
We help to launch their Sale last week with a bespoke pebble photographed on Instow beach.
I’ve also been interviewed by You magazine in the Mail on Sunday. The photographer came down last week to take some photos of me and some of the products – hopefully it will be printed in the next few weeks so I’ll keep you all updated!
We’ve sourced some new pebbles that are smoother and larger than our previous stock, which are really going to make the engraved designs stand out (and buying 7 tonnes of them means we will have plenty for the future!)
After Customer feedback we now offer gift boxes for the pebbles, so ordering your gift online has never been easier.
And I’ve introduced some gorgeous new products, including pebbles for the garden and engravings highlighted with gold and silver ink – even 23 carat gold foil!
Moving away from the pebbles, I’m also selling some gorgeous homeware, including chalkboards with a vintage-style frame and lovely hand-stitched union jack cushions.
