Thank you, Pretty Swell

Studio Overhaul

Since ebeepaperie is not our first stationery venture (many of you now know that we also own Ink Obsession Designs) we are lucky to already have a nice little studio space established in our 1923 bungalow and have a ton of inventory all set and ready to go.

But we've had to buy a lot of new stock for ebee. Every day for the last week we have been getting a ton of shipments in. New paper, new envelopes, new packaging, more ink, etc.

and our little studio space is quickly filling up fast! This weekend we spent a little time rearranging things, hanging new shelving, and getting all of our files super organized, but I'm not sure we are going to keep it that way. I feel like the space is just a wee bit cramped so we are trying to think of alternative ways to keep everything organized. We've been talking about adding on or possibly converting our attic into a workspace. Ideally I'd love to have one room that is just for designing & printing and then another room to stock all the supplies and to package everything. If you have your own home business, how do you organize your space? I'd love to hear how others do it!

Day 5 - Mini Makeover Time

Today is Day 5 for ebeepaperie. I can't believe we officially opened our doors earlier this week! We were planning to wait a little longer, then decided there was no time like the present and started listing items in our etsy shop right away. We are also working on building a website, and that should (hopefully) be coming in the somewhat near future.

Even though we had a look in mind for the company for quite a while, last night I decided something wasn't totally right. I loved the canvas background that we were using on our banner and on our twitter page, but in the end thought it wasn't the best reflection of what I want ebeepaperie to be (fun, girly, and makes you want to sit down and write an old fashioned letter). Since the "b" in ebeepaperie is a guy, he isn't so much into pink and frilly things (and he is more behind the scenes any way), but he agreed a splash of pink was definitely was more me and more of what this company is about.

So I decided to change it up. For those of you who are new to our blog (which is pretty much everyone), here is the old look that we loved, but in the end decided wasn't right:

And of course now you can see our new look, in pink.

We also set up a link to our twitter page so you can follow us there too, and also a web link if you are so inclined to spread some ebeepaperie love.

Have a great weekend everybody!

Hello and how do you do?

Hello and welcome to the official blog of ebeepaperie!

We are just setting up shop and are thrilled to see you! While this business is new, we are not new to the stationery world. In fact, you might be able to figure out what our other company is once you see more of our designs. :)

Until then, here's a sneak preview of the first design we listed on Etsy today. More designs and a website coming soon!
