Exciting News


Hello!

I know, I've been gone forever...

But I'm back with some great news!

I have decided to start offering a smaller size key rack/necklace rack in my shop. I might be phasing out the old size completely.

The old size is 6"x11". Weighs 1 lb 5 ounces when packaged in a box. Usually costs about $8.70 or more to ship with delivery confirmation and insurance. I hate having to charge my buyers so much money...it's insane.

The new size is 6"x7.5". Weighs 12 ounces when packaged in a heavy duty bubble wrap envelope (goodbye, boxes and tons of packaging tape, maybe...) and weighs 1 lb. when in a box (if I keep the boxes...) The REALLY great thing about the envelope is I can ship First Class since it weighs under 13 oz, which costs much much less than my current options. So, with insurance and delivery confirmation, it will cost approximately $4.50 for First Class and $6.80 for Priority, maybe even less.


I'm really happy to be able to offer new pieces at a lower shipping costs, and I'm also pleased to say that since the pieces are smaller, I get more out of the large pieces of wood I cut. This can only mean one thing- I can now offer my pieces at a lower cost! Prices are still to be determined, there is a lot to factor into the equation.

The new pieces will have 3 hooks rather than 5. This is good because spray painting hooks while living in an apartment really just sucks at times. Okay, so it sucks ALL the time. This way I will be able to get about 18 boards finished with one package of hooks, rather than only 11...a huge difference.

Yesterday I painted 4 sets of the new size, introducing 4 new colors:
Pebble grey (almost white)
Nautical blue
Grape green
Sugarplum Purple

Today is printing day- 1 new design to come! I'm printing the new one on the blue and greyish boards. Photos to come. Everything will be in the shop by tomorrow or Wednesday.
