I am so excited to finally be sharing my new website & blog with you. This is one of those projects that takes so much time and collaboration that you just wonder if it will ever come together. And look! It has! And I’m wearing heels! (you know I never wear heels to work right?) But having a new website is a little like wearing heels. It feels like you do when you look your best. When you are in shape and the clothes are picked up off the floor.
So let me give you a personal tour of the new site. (or you can do what I would probably do, just go for it!)
PAPER CUTS ALBUM:
We have new, professional images of our custom invitations. YAY! This has been something that I resisted in the past because of the cost but boy am I glad I finally just paid to have people who know what they are doing to take pictures of my invitations. It just dawned on me one day, the invitations are exquisite, stunning & unique, don’t they deserve pictures that are worthy of them? They sure do! And now they exist. And man they look good!
You can now view our invitation options, pricing & ordering guide on the site. Before, I had to refer customers to an issuu album. It was working, kind of. It sure feels so good to have this all in one place now and I think my customers will agree.
I have a proper about page now with some more professional pictures taken that one day I wore heels. If you don’t already know my story and how I got to where I am, I have given you more than you need to know on the about page. And if you don’t care because you just love pretty stationery, skip it and look at the laser cuts again.
You can check all of our current retailers on the stores page and see if a store near you carries our products. This list has been updated since the old site since I have added more retailers.
You can now read what our customers have to say about working with Avie Designs on the reviews page. I blush a little just thinking about how kind they have been. They are way better at bragging about me than I could ever be and for that, I am truly grateful.
And last but not least, you can access the answers to most of your questions on the FAQ page (found under wedding). If you find that there is a burning question that you think should be added, please don’t hesitate to let me know.
I am really excited to be back up and running with the new blog. I have lots of fun content coming up that I have been itching to share but have been waiting for the website to be completed. The focus is really going to shift. There is going to be the usual posts about what’s going on with Avie Designs and our new products but there will also be new wedding and party related posts. This isn’t going to turn into a wedding blog but I do want to give my customers some helpful resources.
If you haven’t been over to the etsy shop in a while, you should check it out, we’ve made quite a few changes over there too.
Lastly, I need to thank a few people that helped make this site possible. I worked with Aeolidia and they were just a pleasure. Eva was my designer and Jon was my programmer. I can’t thank them enough for all their help and patience. They were both lovely to work with. Erin & Bryan over at Tin Can Photography were also a big part of this website and it wouldn’t have happened without them. Thanks!
