Finally, the Photo Magnet!

As I mentioned in an earlier post photo magnets are coming soon.  I’m hoping to get them on the site tonight, but wanted to share what they will look like.  Here’s one I prototyped and included with a recent clients order.

This is shown next to the 3″ balsa ornament so you have a size comparison.  The magnets are 2″ square and feature a full backed magnet for a sleek design and extra stregnth.  They are manufactured the same way the photo ornaments are, except we’ve chosen bass wood for these since it’s a nice light weight hardwood.  This will sure be anyones favorite item to leave front and center in the most visable area of the house!

Coming Soon – Ribbon Necklaces & Photo Magnets!

I’m tickled pink to announce that just in time for the holidays we have 2 new products that will be launching.

First one is a double stranded ribbon necklace with sterling lobster clasp.  We will have these available in black, brown, and pink starting November 1st.

Here it is in pink with a 20mm x 30mm simple couture pendant:

And here it is in black with a 30mm x 20mm funky couture pendant.

The next item (which I’ll have to upload a picture for later) is our photo magnet!  They will each be 2″ x 2″ in size, manufactured on bass wood (a hard wood version of our balsa ornament) and will feature a full bleed magnet backing.  The photo magnets will retail for $20 each and make FANTASTIC client gifts!  A perfect trinket they will leave up year round in the most focal point of thier home.  😉  The magnets will come individually packaged in our tulle silver and white pouch that coordinate with our ornament packaging.

Long Time No Post

Well it’s been a crazy few months here at Little Whimsy, which is fantastic!  I’m also thrilled to report that we are moving orders through right on time and even a bit ahead of schedule thanks to some improvements to our drying racks, so holiday orders are moving along nice and quick!

Speaking of holiday orders, don’t forget the deadline is Monday December 1st, that means orders and images submitted.  A note about that day… it’s the Monday after Thanksgiving (gobble gobble!) so if you or your clients will be away that weekend you may want to get those orders in before you head out.  Any orders placed from December 2nd through December 27th will NOT begin production until December 28th.  I’ll be on vacation from the time my last orders ship (and I see them arrive safely) until the 27th spending some much deserved time with the family.  🙂

Hope you are all having a wonderful season so far!

Holiday Collection Gift Set – The Ideal Marketing Kit

I’ve gone ahead and put together a special package for photographers made up of the top holiday gifting items.  Make your studio a one stop shop for your clients, and help them complete their holiday shopping.

Not sure what to get for grandma?  A bookmark would be perfect.  How about a proud aunt?  Our amazing panoramic key ring!  Speaking of key rings, grab one for dad while your at it, and don’t forget a pendant for mom!  For everyone else on the list, our maple holiday ornament would be the perfect family gift.  See how easy that was?

The best part about your clients giving a photo gift (or purchasing it for themselves)… they are constantly reminded about YOUR great service and talk up YOUR studio.  It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving!

Included in this collection:

  • Our top selling 20mm pendant with your choice of a rubber or leather necklace.
  • Two maple 2.5″ ornaments, one each in mahogany and ebony tone.
  • Our brand new panoramic key ring in your choice of silver or gold tone.  Includes an extra ring to customize your style.
  • Classic bookmark with crystal, pearl, and gemstone accents, in your choice of silver or gold tones.

This collection if purchased separately retails for $220.00.  For a limited time we’re offering this great collection for $175.00! Don’t forget, if your one of the photographers in our wholesale program your discount still applies! Be sure to grab this before it’s gone so you can have it to show for your September & October sessions.

This collection is available starting August 9th and for a limited time.  Order early if you would like this for your September sessions.

The Mijito Bookmark

Ahh. The colors in this one just make me want to sit under a palm tree somewhere with a mojito and relax. Amazing how a simple picture can lift the spirits and let the mind wander even though reality is hanging out at home with all the kids off for summer break, LOL! Anyhow, ain’t she a beauty?

mojito bookmark

Now that I am back from la la land, here’s something noteworthy about this piece. The photo tile shown is a brand new size you’ll see on the website really soon. It’s a 15mm x 20mm vertical Mother of Pearl tile. Just a little bit bigger than the 13mm x 18mm we have right now, and that little bit makes a huge difference. Love it!

Spiffy New Website!

After a year of hemming and hawing about exactly what to do for the website revamp, the time has come. The new Little Whimsy can be seen at www.LittleWhimsy.com, same link, sleek new look! Here’s what excites me about the new site:

  • My wholesale clients can now register and their discount will be automatic without any codes to remember.
  • I can issue coupons for events, specials, or what ever and my retail and wholesale clients can use them.
  • A permanent shopping cart so if you need to leave for a few to check with a client before you order, you won’t come back to an empty cart.
  • Product notifications – If you want you can be automatically notified of updates to products like sales, price changes, etc.
  • Streamlined shopping, international shipping, and just a better all round experience.
  • And from the merchandising side, it’s a whole lot easier for me to add new products and new categories without having to completely re vamp the website.

As a added incentive for those on my newsletter list, I sent a registration link a few days ago for a peek at the new site and the opportunity to register early and receive a $5 off coupon. I’m posting today on the blog to open that up to everyone, BUT, you must register by end of day Tuesday July 15th to receive that coupon. To register visit the website and then click log in > create account at the top of the page. If your a professional photographer, be sure to follow the instructions on the contact us page to have your account converted over to wholesale.

That’s enough rambling for today… I’m off to make some tiles. Please drop a line and let me know what YOU think of the new website. 🙂
