Celebrating another year…

By January 20, 2009General

It's hard to believe but Papertrey will officially be two-years old on February 15th!  And if any of you have a good memory, this time last year was VERY exciting around these parts!  And we promise that this year will be even better!  So won't you join us in the festivities this month?

-BIG announcements about exciting changes & NEW products EVERYDAY for 14 days (February 1st-14th)!

-SIX (rather than the traditional five) big countdown project presentations (9th-14th)

-challenges to keep you stamping your heart out!

-super fun blog games like you've never seen before!

-nearly $3,500 in prizes & giveaways! 

And it all begins February 1st!  That's only about 10 days away!  Between now and then I'll be giving you little bitty hints each day about what kinds of things we have cooked up for you!  So until then, get plenty of rest, because you will want to party hard with Papertrey as we celebrate the conclusion of our second year!

    I am so happy for the whole PTI team, I think you have worked so hard and really kept such a high standard of customer service and integrity, you should all be very proud of your accomplishments!

    You make a lot of people very happy every month!
    I am so excited to see all the wonderful new things you have planned and hope to be inspired to create more this year!

    I am happy to say I am one of your many volunteer “PR” associates. I sing your praises constantly and have a hard time liking any nonPTI stamps!

    Happy Birthday PTI!

    Hi Nichole,

    I’m a blogger from the United Kingdom, but I know of your work from Lauren Meader’s blog link.

    Just wanted to message you to say that I’ve been awarded with a Blog Award today from Jo and that I needed to nominate ten other blogs that inspire me, one of which is yours. I just love your work!

    Please click on my name to pop over to my blog to give it a read and to pick up an award I have for you!

    Bye for now,

    Congratulations on the upcoming 2 year anniversary. I am one of your #1 fans and sing your praises to all who will listen. All of you at Papertrey should be extremely proud of what you have accomplished in two years with hard work, determination, and a lot of heart. Your products are exceptional and I am never disappointed with an order. Your attention to detail, customer service, and affordability make me come back for more and more and more. I also love that there are blogs where a visual person like myself can see how you use your products. They inspire me and make my day. A million thanks:-)

    Ugh, I have to wait another 10 days?! I’m really looking forward to it – I wasn’t in on the whole online stamping/scrapping scene for the last anniversary but it sounds like it’s going to be a ton of fun! Looking forward to placing my first PTI order soon (compiling a list, and dropping a lot of other items so that I can spend more on PTI!). Happy upcoming anniversary!

    awesome – can’t wait to hear more!
    Is there a way to see if we will earn the free set for this year? I have so many sets I can’t distinguish what was bought in the first year and what was bought in the second year.

    Sarah says:

    I am an avid reader of your blog and often visit the papertrey site to see whats new, but I live in the UK and postage and import duties make it impossible for most of us here to buy from you! Do you have any plans for a UK stockist / franchise so we can get our ‘crafty’ hands on your stamping goodies? 🙂

    Sheri Danielson says:

    Has it already been 2 years? I remember scurring to buy all of my required sets for the free set last year. This year I have them all ahead of time so you know where my money goes! Great stamps and I am looking forward to many more years of buying your great products. Happy Birthday PTI!!!
