I am surrounded by beautiful things everyday which is a major part of my inspiration here at Parcel Post. Lately I have been realizing that without the beautiful people I am surrounded by in and around the store, all of this would feel empty.
I love our family here at Urbanic! Above are some photo booth pics that our girls Tess, Janean and Cristin took this week. Celia is missing in these shots as she was most likely preforming somewhere (she is a brilliant singer songwriter). Joshua and I literally searched high and low for our staff. It was worth the hundreds of interviews because we adore these ladies with all of our hearts!
We work very closely with our brides (and grooms) and genuinely build relationships with them in the course of the whole invitation process. When a bride leaves the store overjoyed after picking up her invites, I get a gigantic rush of happiness. In my work environment, there is nothing that compares to this feeling of accomplishment. This is what we strive for everyday! This week I received a thank you card from one of our wonderful brides and it meant the world to me. I know how crazy and busy it is in the midst having a wedding. Her taking the time to do this was so thoughtful.
When I first opened the store 3 years ago and got my business cards printed, I didn’t love how the color brown came out and felt sick about it since I had printed 8,000 of them. It was my fault because I chose the pantone, and couldn’t justify re-doing the whole job since the 200lb stock paper was so pricey. I am happy to say that I have learned a lot about printing since then and figured out how to mix a custom pantone color! This week we finally reprinted the cards and our printers comped me the job, remembering the agony I went through when I first opened. They are amazing!
Everytime I see a customer signing up on our mailing list, I feel honored and even flattered that they want us to keep them informed of our happenings. I was watching a memory clip of Michael Jackson last night on the news where he was sincerely telling his fans that he loved them. I feel this way about our customers.
The mail arrived as I was sitting here writing this post. I got a card from Erika at Delphine thanking me for the order I placed at the NSS. This reminded me to include the talented group of designers we work with. Everything in our store is hand picked from who we consider the nation’s top designers. It is so nice to receive friendly notes with our orders, mid day emails, and a random visits from them every now and then! I really appreciate some of the friendships we have built.
I think the sadness of yesterday made me a little more in touch with my treasures today.
