"And the nominees are..."

We are tickled pink this weekend to find out that we were chosen as a finalist for not just one but two awards this coming spring!

The first is our WTF Braille card. We are one of three finalists for the prestigious 22nd Annual Louie Award for the Best Humorous Friendship/ Encouragement Card greeting card over $3.50. Each card is blind judged and scored on the basis of six criteria – Imagination, Impact, Artistry, Harmony (the blend of visual and verse), Sensibility and Value (the balance of product quality and price). The dinner award ceremony will take place May 17 in New York during the course of the National Stationery Show.

The other is for The Stationery Trend Award, otherwise known as "The Trendy." We made it as one the top 10 finalist in the Greeting Card Category! The amazing thing is that this is voted online by retailers- the people who buy our stuff. I guess if the Louie Award is like the Academy Award of greeting cards, then The Trendy is like the People's Choice Awards. Online voting for the final round is open now! Voting ends April 17th.

All this anticipation and excitement leading up to our third exhibition for the National Stationery Show in May! Can't wait!
