Studio + Warehouse Midsummer Updates and Happenings
Hello, friends! We hope you are finding ways to stay cool during these dog days of summer. Here at the studio we have so much going on that we can hardly cover it all in just one post. First, let’s talk about what we’ve been doing and then we can move on to some of the exciting things coming your way!
In June, we launched our eye-catching and versatile melamine plates. These are a perfect option for picnics and parties, as well as everyday use. We’d love to see your table-settings using our plates - email us your pictures or hit us up on social media!
Also in June, Amanda flew to Dallas for the Dallas Market. This is a BIG deal because we're officially in a SHOWROOM! For makers like us, it's a big deal. Think of it like this: your favorite boutique buys items they love from various makers across the USA. Most often, stores go to "market" 1-2x a year to shop. One of the biggest honors a maker (like us!) can receive is to be selected to be part of a showroom so that stores can shop our products (for their store!) throughout the entire year. And some really big news: Atlanta and Vegas are happening next!
In July, we had our second annual 4th of July sale and thanks to all of you, it was HUGE! We seriously couldn’t be more grateful for all the orders y’all placed with us during the sale. As you might already know, some of us here in the studio are wrapping + packaging nerds and we LOVED getting all these orders out to you. We really hope you enjoyed opening them as much as we loved prepping them for you!
Also in July, we introduced several new notepad designs based on popular demand, including Blue Crab, Monarch Butterfly, Dragonfly, and Horse. Our refrigerator pads and desk pads have been extremely popular and we can’t help but thank you again for your help in designing these. As Amanda often says, “You HAVE to listen to your customers!” We put the question out there on social media and y’all answered. Our notepads were truly a joint venture between YOU and US and we loved the process of designing them exactly the way you wanted them.
Speaking of notepads, we have some new designs heading your way. Next up are Missouri and Oregon and maybe a surprise or two (towels too!). We ALWAYS want to hear what y’all want us to do next so please reach out to us and let us know your thoughts!
Finally, our most exciting news (at least as far as we’re concerned) - TOTE. BAGS. Now, we know y’all love the free tote bags that we send with every $100 order, but we’ve stepped up our game and designed a tote bag that is both beautiful and functional. Multiple inside pockets + perfectly sized handles + Amanda’s designs = a bag you can’t live without. We got to try out the samples of these bags and I’m telling you, you’re going to love them.
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we have to say once again how much we appreciate all of YOU. It’s because of you that we get to do what we do. We love being here in the studio and we love making y’all happy. Stay safe, stay cool, and let us know what else you’d like to see coming out of Amanda Klein Company!
With love and gratitude,
Amanda, Tori, and April
