Day 4: Introducing Papertrey Radio & A New Way to Shop

By February 3, 2010General

Welcome back for day four of Papertrey's 3rd Anniversary festivities! We have had such a huge response from everyone and we are just thrilled that you all want to be a part of this!

I'm going to start today's post with a special announcement.

(just click the button below to hear all the details!)

Papertrey Radio Announcement

(for a written transcript of today's message, please CLICK HERE)

So what do you think about all of THAT!  Erin Lincoln & I hope you are as excited as we are for this new adventure to begin!  And most of all, we look forward to getting to know all of you better through this program!  

And a big THANK YOU to Erin for taking on the job as the Papertrey Radio Host.  Not only has she done all of the research and technology development to prepare for our jump into this media, she's also going to be behind the scenes formatting each podcast.  Thank you, thank you, thank you, Erin!

In honor of this new media we will be presenting, we thought it would be fun to include all of YOU in a fun project we are planning to share with you on release day, February 15th.  We invite you to call in and actually leave us a voice message, wishing us a happy anniversary!  It's quick, simple and FREE, using new google voice technology!  

A few dozen of the messages left will be selected and featured as part of a special presentation Erin Lincoln is assembling.  We would love for you to be a part of this!  It just takes a few simple steps!

Hear-from-you
1. Click on the "Call Me" icon below.

2. Google Voice will pop up with a box where you enter your name & phone number.  (This information is not viewable by anybody and is just a temporary file that allows google voice to proceed with the next step.  There is even a small box for you to check if you want your number to be COMPLETELY private, where we don't even see it in the voice message transcript we get.)

3. Hit "Connect".  When you hit this button, you will be "calling" yourself instantly and your phone will ring.

4.  When you pick up, it will be connecting you to our Google Voicemail.  It will prompt you when to begin recording your message.

5.  Be sure to begin with your first name and location, such as "This is Susan in New York" or "Hello from Alicia in Tampa".  It will be fun to hear all the different location later! 

6.  If you aren't good at speaking eloquently on the fly (like me!), you may want to prepare a little something on paper first, so you can read and feel more at ease!

7. Hang up and hit "Disconnect" to end the message.  It's that easy!

After you're done with you call, you can read on for another BIG announcement!

It's been in the works for over two years, and it is finally just about completed.  The new and improved Papertrey store.  Coming this spring.

Front page copy

Some of the features that are being integrated…

-improved functionality.  We've heard you loud and clear!  We have taken all of your suggestions into account as we work to make this new site the *ultimate* shopping experience.

-thousands of product tags, allowing you to perform searches in dozens of different ways to find exactly what you want.

-professional photography throughout, with detailed photos of each individual ribbon in every color and more!

This project has been monumental, but we are confident that once the new website goes live, your shopping experience will be unlike anything you have ever seen!  Have no fear, it won't be much longer now and it will be well worth the wait!

A-contest
After all that exciting news, what do you say we have a little contest?  We'll make it super easy for you today to give you a bit of break so you are creatively strong for what's to come in the next few days!

Just leave a comment letting us know what you think of our Papertrey Radio announcement.  Who would you like to see us interview over the course of the year?  What kinds of things would you want to know? Are there any special features or other installments you would like to see us do with this audio media?

The-prize
The-prize
 

A brand new, engraved 4G iPod Shuffle in our signature Papertrey Aqua color.  Just the thing to store all of the latest Papertrey Radio podcasts so you can listen while you stamp! A-few-things-to-remember

1. To be eligible to win, all you need to do is leave a comment, sharing your thoughts about Papertrey Radio!

2. Only one comment per person please.

3. Contest will close at 7am EST, Friday, February 5th.  One winner will be randomly selected by noon EST the same day and announced on our February Release Winners page.

I have even more excitement to share with you tomorrow, so stay tuned and I hope to see you again soon! Have a wonderful day & do something creative!

P.S. Before I go, I just want to give a shout out to my sister, Jen, who worked as my "sound crew" during the recording of today's podcast.  I couldn't have done it without her.  Thank you, Jen!

    Papertrey. Radio. RADIO – how COOL is that?! I love that it’s a way to connect US to YOU. And to that end I think a lot of US involved is a great idea…guest hosts…interview us…let us ask questions, etc. LOL – yeah, let US be your show. I just think we know so much about all of you and have learned so much about you through your work and we know your styles and processes that this might be a good opportunity to give back to the little people if you will. Can’t wait for this to start – should be fun!

    What a blast of an idea! Radio! I don’t have an Ipod and don’t know what a podcast is, but I’d learn fast. Would LOVE to hear some interviews on the design process used by your design team and others. Thanks so much!

    Rachel VP says:

    What a unique and out of the box idea! This will definitely add more interest to your already attractive products. Stamping is such a good thing to add in a social setting with friends. I can really see how this could add to that element. Looking forward to more! πŸ™‚

    Sara Spencer says:

    Wow! What will you think of next? Seriously? How fun to get to listen to my favorite designers “on air”. Put a voice with their photos. And I can’t wait to see the new and improved store. From the photo above it looks very promising. I love PTI products and I especially love that this company got me interested in stamping again after an extended break. Now I love it more than ever.

    Papertrey is the only reason I would ever need an iPod. Being inspired with radio interviews is too good to be true. Somebody pinch me…I must be dreaming! I can’t wait to see and HEAR what PTI has in store for us in 2010!

    Papertrey Radio – How exciting!!!! I am really looking forward to the podcasts! I would like to hear from all of the design team…you are all so talented and would have so many tips and techniques to tell the audience! I can’t wait to hear more…

  • 23
    Sharon D says:

    I’ve always thought one of the best things about PTI (well, besides the amazing products) is how accessible Nichole and the DT are to all of us–via their blogs and the forum. Papertrey Radio kicks that involvement up a notch. It will be so fun to hear interviews, get to ask questions, and just get to interact even more.

  • 24
    Candice W. says:

    Papertrey Radio!! How Awesome!! And I am SO excited to see Erin on your team! I used to love watching her videos when she worked for CK! I think you should be the first guest on the show – I am sure we all have a ton of questions for you πŸ™‚

    Mindy Eggen says:

    Wow! never would have seen that one coming but what an exciting concept! Who would I like to see interviewed….? Why YOU of course!! You are so full of inspiration and I LOVE your style – also Dawn McVey – I visit both of your blogs every day – I don’t know how you keep up! I can’t wait to see the new website – it looks wonderful already – I’m squinting my eyes to try and see every detail loL!

  • 26
    nina says:

    Wow! I never would have guessed about the radio in a million years. Sounds very intriguing. Of course I’d love to hear from all of the DT members – what inspires them, etc etc. I’d also love to hear from Jane & Julie – your behind-the-scenes partners. And fabulous news about the website – can’t wait to see it!

  • 27
    Wahinelei says:

    WOW RADIO!! Even more ways to connect with PTI on a daily basis!! Im always checking your blog to see your latest updates or to be inspired. Im always checking the DT blogs for their latest updates. Im always on the PTI forum sharing the enthusiasm for anything PTI. NOW I have RADIO and podcasts to look forward to!! Im too excited right now to think about interviews or features that I want to see but I know you’ll have something special lined up! WOW!!!!!!!

  • 28

    see mary stamp says:

    As I listened to today’s radio message my response was – I guess I’m going to have to get an IPOD now. You continually amaze and surprise me with your innovations. I love the idea of these radio podcasts. It will be so exciting to put voices with faces. (Loved hearing your voice today Nichole). Wow Erin, how awesome of you to take this task on. Thank you for archiving all of the podcasts too. I love being able to go to your site and find past tutorials and such. Excited to hear about the redesign of the web store too. You have all been working very hard!!! It’s late here so I’ll leave my voice mail message tomorrow.

  • 30
    Nerina says:

    This sounds like a truly fun addition to the Papertrey line-up! Nichole you have a beautiful voice! There is something that really connects one to people when you know what they look like AND sound like – I learned that watching Dawn’s videos, it’s wonderful feeling like we “know” you :0)! (P.S. It wasn’t meant to be part of the question, but the new store looks totally and completely WONDERFUL!! I can’t wait to browse it!)

This is so interactive! You are all TERRIFIC!

    sarah says:

    i just listened to the papertrey announcement…so cool!! this is such a great idea and a nice way to feel connected to the designers…in a non creepy way πŸ™‚ i think it would be great to interview the designers about their newest stamp sets to see what they were thinking and going through when they were created, kind of like a glimpse into their creative process. this is awesome, such fun!!

    Rieca says:

    I am amased how rapidly technology changes. To think that a couple years ago I did not blog, I did not even know what a blog is. And now to think that we could interact with voices, I am thrilled and excited to hear everyones voice.

    Oh my! To think… I could be inspired by radio too?! Your creativity simply never ceases to amaze me πŸ™‚ Thank you for such endless inspiration and opportunities to win such wonderful blog prizes. I’d love to hear interviews from your designers as well as those with new and amazing craft products I would use when creating with PTI goodies. And your iPod prize is even my favorite color πŸ™‚ Wish me luck!

  • 42

    Fantastic! Now you are joining forces with the podcast world, my life may be complete. I think it would be fantastic to listen to members of the design team talk about their inspirations, how they plan layouts, color combinations, etc. Just need continuous hand holding, and PTI is so very good at it.

  • 43
    NancyL2648 says:

    Wow…who would have thought! I love the idea of a podcast with our favorite designers.
    I would have to have my grandson to show me how to use an ipod if I win. *grin*

    C Burke says:

    Wow! What an interesting addition to Papertrey Ink! I would like to hear updates from you and the design team members about new products, ways to use supplies, verbal sneak peeks about upcoming releases, hints about product storage, etc. In other words, general Papertrey and stamping information. Thanks!

  • 46
    Wendy T. says:

    Oh, WOW! I love this idea! I would definitely love to hear interviews of each of the PTI team including Jane and Julie -I’d love to have a glimpse at PTI through their eyes -and of course, Nichole and the DT and stamp designers. Stamping tips and techniques, the designers talking about how they come up with new stamp ideas and designs, etc. This is SUCH a fabulous idea. I can’t wait!

  • 47

    radio!another brilliant idea…can’t wait.

    Mary A says:

    Wow! What an interesting concept! I couldn’t get the pop-up of the announcement to work on my Mac (which is pretty new to me still, so it may just be me), but I am intrigued! I am TOTALLY excited about the new webstore, though… Can’t wait to hear about all the exciting new features (fingers crossed for wishlists, account history, and a new & improved forum/gallery)! πŸ™‚ The FUN continues!

    Paulina says:

    Wow, this is so cool! I would LOVE to hear interviews from your whole DT. All of these ladies are fab…I want to hear how they started their journey, where they get inspiration and also get to know the non crafty side of them!

  • 51
    Becky P. says:

    Wow, This will be great. I would love to hear about your process in designing a stamp set. How you conceptualize a set, and how you get the fine details incorporated that you and your company are so famous for.

    Also, it would be great to hear from each member of your design team, how they came to their signature style and where they see their style evolving to in the future.

    Finally, it would be great to have you guys do some product critiques/reviews. When there is a new trend, it becomes the latest must-have thing, but then, it does not always get used. It would be nice to hear the pros/cons from the people who inspire me so much on a daily basis. Sorry about the long book. This is exciting!

  • 52

    Wow, I would never have thought of that, good for you! I’d love for you to interview Melissa Phillips, I’m sure what she says will be as beautiful as what she writes and I’d love to hear her voice!

  • 53
    Ronna E. says:

    Love that you are making the site more interactive and embracing podcasting. Looking forward to hearing design team interviews and would love to be kept abreast of new trends in papercrafting as they happen. I would also love to have more videos available to show new techniques. Can’t wait to shop on the newly re-designed site!

    tanna says:

    PTI Radio! I am so excited about another way to learn more about my favorite company! I know that many others will agree with me that this is a GREAT idea!

    Papertrey Radio!!! Now that’s something to shout from the rooftops!!! The new site looks FABULOUS as well. I’ve been with you since the beginning, so I don’t have a problem navigating my way around the current site. That said, anything you do is magical, so I’m sure I’ll love the new site!

    Back to Papertrey Radio, I’m hoping to hear interviews with everyone on the Design Team. It’s so fun to put a *voice* with the face…like I did with you tonight Nichole!!! I’d also love to hear tips and suggestions for making the most of my stamping time. It’d be fun to hear how the various members of the design team got started with stamping, how various customers found PTI, etc. You know…everything!!!

    Diane M says:

    PTI Radio – Wow, what a concept. Many industries use podcasts and I think it will be great fun.

    WOW! I never would have guessed that your surprise announcement was a podcast. This is so awesome! I loved hearing your voice on the announcement. It makes us seem even more connected when we see the videos or hear your voices. Everything about the release party has been fabulous and SO MUCH FUN! Thanks for everything. I can hardly wait for the first podcast! Oh, for suggestions–definitely interviews first–you first and then all the designers!!

    wow!!! PTI Radio – awesome!!! I’d like for you to interview Dawn McVey first. I just think her work is amazing and she seems so down to earth and sweet!

  • 63
    patty thomas says:

    Thank You, PTI!!! I am a diehard podcast viewer (listener) to several various types of podcasts. I love, love, love this idea. I would love interviews with various leaders in the industry being asked how their creativity comes to them, what trends they are excited about, what they would like to see coming into the crafting industry, perhaps even historical talks of why we are where we are today. Also, I would love to hear how each started in the business, bumps along the way, inspiring hurdles they conquered, etc.
    This is such an incredible idea and I can’t wait!

  • 64
    Cindy Holshouser says:

    How fun to hear your voice after reading your blog for 2 years. This is such a neat idea. I can only imagine how much we will learn from interviews with your design team gals. And it seems like it will be a time saver in comparison to reading lots of different threads and comments about a certain issue.

  • 65

    very cool! your design team members for sure, I follow a lot of their blogs

  • 66
    S Fink says:

    I can’t wait to see what new things will learn and what inspirations will come our way from PTI.

  • 67
    Kayleen Kamikawa says:

    Interesting concept. Hopefully the community will enjoy hearing instead of just reading about stamping.

  • 68
    Jenink says:

    Hmmm….that is a really interesting question. I’m not sure what the podcasts will be like since I usually rely on lots of visual info when it comes to papercrafting.

    I think it would a great way to sort of listen to a ‘chat’ with the designers.

    Kristina says:

    Radio?! What a great new avenue to connect us all together in this big stamping world. πŸ™‚ I love that we get to hear real voices to go with the pictures. As for future interviews, etc, I would love to hear from some of the stamp designers about what inspired their collections. I always love them, and it’s great to read about them, but sometimes passion and emotion are transmitted more effectively through the voice. πŸ™‚ In other words, I would love to ‘hear’ from them! The website sneak peak looks great! I can’t wait to see the whole thing!!!

    Sue Lelli says:

    This is just so exciting! Papertrey Radio! If it wasn’t so late tonight I’d try it now but I don’t want to wake my husband up! Can’t wait for the new shopping experience so I can buy even more FAB products! You are the BEST!

    Madhvi says:

    I seriously don’t know how you do it, but you all just keep coming up with more fabulous ideas!! A podcast is a terrific idea! I love podcasts and this is a new and fresh idea. I think it is such fun to finally hear the voice of someone I feel I “know” from reading their blog, so this is so exciting. I think I would love to hear PTI designers talk about just about anything. πŸ™‚

    As for the new store, I am stoked! The sneak you’ve shown looks great. You must be tremendously busy…I am exhausted just reading about all the new endeavors, so a big KUDOS to you Nichole, and the entire PTI team!!

    What a GREAT idea…Papertrey Radio is going to be wonderful! I’m looking forward to hearing from the girls on the Papertrey team…especially Debbie Olson…I love, love, love everything she comes up with. Would love to see inside her mind and hear how she comes up with some of her ideas!!

    Steph says:

    Papertrey Ink RADIO………..would never have seen that one coming, what an awesome surprise! I love that you are always thinking of ways for PTI to stay ahead of the crowd and stand out as a very innovative company. Love it!!!

    I truly enjoy and appreciate ALL of the PTI design team gals, but because I absolutely ADORE Melissa Phillips, I would LOVE to hear from her…….any tips, tricks, or tidbits would be fun to learn. I also think it would be fun to hear from Julie and Jane to know what each of their jobs entail. I’m sure they do so much more than we even realize.

    Lovin’ all the anniversary excitement! PTI ROCKS!!!

    Shelly Kettell says:

    WOW!!! Radio never came to my mind!?!
    Can’t wait to hear from you…all the design team…and perhaps the monthly guest stamper. It would be fun to hear a brainstorming session!!! (Ha…not likely…too many secrets would be out!)

    It’s been an exciting time for us watching you…I can only imagine the happiness your heart holds! πŸ™‚

    Dawn Nikol says:

    LOVE this!! I like that I’ll be able to keep up with my PTI addiction while “away” from my computer taking care of my 3 month old daughter. I always make time to read the latest blog post, but the radio will make it a lot easier to get my “fix” and love on my daughter. πŸ™‚

    I definitely think interviewing the PTI gals first is a must! And then, of course, the distinguished guest designer…

    I’m so ecstatic for you gals and can’t wait to see all of this new stuff happening in the near future!

    That is absolutely amazing! I love the idea that I will be able to download interviews and here some exciting things while I run at the gym or even while I sit and create in my room! I also have to say (as a person with a career in web designing) I LOVE the glimpse of the new store it too looks amazing!!

    I think Papertrey Radio is a fantastic idea! How fun to be able to hear some of my favorite crafters (and fans). Two thumbs way up! πŸ™‚

  • 114
    Colleen says:

    I love the Papertrey Podcast idea! I definitely would like to hear you interviewed first…and then I would like to hear Michelle Wooderson interviewed, then Heather Nichols, Dawn McVey and all of the other DT members and stamp designers. Oh, it will be so cool to learn from the podcasts. And a feature I would like to be included with the podcasts is a Tips feature – I know you all must have zillions of tips and tricks that you use daily without even thinking about it. Another feature would be picking colors to use together, for this feature in each podcast perhaps a different color combo could be discussed and why it works, etc. I can’t wait to listen to your first broadcast!!

    Sofia says:

    That is sooooo exciting!!! Radio??? I would love to hear the voice of all Papertrey designers!! Visiting around their blogs so often feels like they are close friends and would be awesome to hear them out too!!That’s a reason to get an Ipod (if I don’t get the one you’re giving out!!! LOL).
    Thanks guys!!

  • 122
    Angy Hughes says:

    AWESOME! I would actually love to hear from each member of the design team – maybe once or twice a month feature a member. Asking the questions we all want to know – how did you get started? Big inspirations? Where do you get your cool, vintage items? Will papertrey ever carry some of those items? Etc. Just love the fact that we will be able to put a face with a voice now! So cool!

    A radio ? Nichole …”Una ne fai e cento ne pensi !” that means: you do one thing and you think about one hundread more” said to someone who is always comeing out with something, better something unexpected.

    Ann says:

    Nichole its great to HEAR from you! It will be another way of making all your fans feel part of PTI. Of course we want to hear from all of the team – but someone who we never hear from is David – what does he think about it all?

    What a fabulous idea! It’s great to connect to human voices rather than just reading. Once again, Papertrey is leading the way on innovative ideas to connect with customers. I love it, can’t wait to have a go and listen in. x

  • 130
    Stephanie Niavez says:

    Wow!!! How cool is this?!?!?! I am not even sure what I want to hear or who I would like interviewed. I am just amazed at this. I learn something new everyday. And, I am so excited about the new, improved Papertrey online store.

  • 131
    Linda says:

    Wow, the list of surprises seems to go on and on…how lucky are we to enjoy all these special things you have up your sleeve for us. Good luck to you and Erin in this new venture Nichole….sounds very exciting. I’d love to hear interviews with Debbie and Dawn especially:-)

  • 132
    Yvonne says:

    Papertrey Radio… what a wonderful idea!

    I think an interview with Becca Feeken from the Amazing Paper Grace blog would be great.

    I’d be interested in how she plans a project and where her inspiration comes from… also maybe e.g. ten tips she has learned the hard way or through experimentation that she can pass on about esp her vintage/elegant projects.

    The interactive possibilities of the media interest me e.g. down the track maybe an interviewee and then questions from listeners (live and/or recorded), or people ringing in about a particular topic/technique etc. to share ideas.

    All sounds very exciting.

  • 133
    Alice Roushia says:

    OMG, it was GREAT to leave a message on the Radio. I think it is a fantastic idea. This way, people have a “VOICE” in the new and improved Papertrey. The new store sounds like it will be exciting. Thank you for sharing all of your inspiration and talent. I can truly tell you LOVE your work and your company with all of your heart and soul. Congrats again on the 3rd Anniversary of PTI>

    Dana F. says:

    Wow, that’s exciting news to wake up to! I loved to actually HEAR from you and look forward to more PTI podcasts. Also the website sneak looks AWESOME!! Lots of food for more CSI: PTI threads on the forum until the final reveal :-))

  • 135
    Melissa McF says:

    A bit of sour grapes from me…
    Those of us still on dial up won’t likely be listening to the podcasts.
    Yes, in rural areas – even just an hour away from Silicon Valley in California – not everyone has access to high-speed internet. Just browsing the graphics-laden stamping blogs is a lesson in frustration… though yours Nichole is worth it. Won’t kick the kids off the computer doing their homework to wait for a podcast, even from Papertrey. (didn’t even bother with the stamp designer birthday graphic contest – two days? It would take me all of two days to get their blogs to come in, much less download their graphics) Told you, sour grapes!

    Seriously’ you guys keep getting better and better. I know I’m a true PTI fan! I’m in a hotel room getting ready to go to Dartmouth-Hitchcock for back surgery and I want to make sure I checked out what was going on at Nichole’s blog before I left! I’ll have to connect with the radio when I go home! Awesome idea! You guys are amazing!!

    Very cool Nicole! Such a fun way to be interactive with all PTI’s followers! I’d love to hear Melissa Phillips interviewed, she is so creative and I’d like to hear her process in her own words.
    Can’t wait for the new store site to be up! Should be fun!

  • 141
    Julie Jones says:

    Another GREAT idea to get to know PaperTrey! I love this. I love to put voices with faces and learn more about people. I dont always have time to sit and read but could listen while I’m working. I look forward to hearing more.

    Maryanne Degiorgio says:

    A very exciting concept. It would be great hearing everyone instead of just reading.

    I think this a great idea. I’m excited to hear from the whole design team and “put a voice to the name”

  • 145
    Kristin says:

    I love the idea of PTI Radio!! But, I must say, what I really want is to have Mish, Dawn, & Nicole with a LIVE mic :-)… I follow all 3 blogs and have “those” kind of girlfriends that you can stay up late with and laugh all night with and do it again the next day.

I wish you all the good things for this new year. Thanks so much for this celebration, it has been very fun and interesting. I have always love your stamps but you have captured my heart this week.

  • 149

    It’s very good to hear your voice and it would be great to hear more interviews with yourself and the DT members, especially about their crafting journeys!

  • 150

  • 153
    Julie E says:

    What a fun idea! I am looking forward to hearing everyone’s voice. To think that we used to only communicate over the phone, so voice was the only thing to build a picture of someone by. Now, we have pics and words, but no voice…until now! Can’t wait to try it out.
    Plus, I am looking forward to the revamped store – I could never find the twine LOL!!

  • 154

    This is a wonderful idea! I love pod casts and these will be so much fun to listen to while stamping! Congratulations in your new adventure. I can hardly wait to see what else you have up your sleeve!!!

  • 155
    Cass says:

    Wow – how cool! I loved listening to that first message. Can’t wait to hear all the rest of the DT’s voices! I have never owned an Ipod, or anything more modern than a CD player really, but I assume they all be available to listen to on my computer?

  • 156
    Susie N. says:

    Pti radio!!!! How exciting!!!! I would love to hear from each design member and what they are currently inspired by and how their project ideas progress from there. All the ideas that brew from you and the team are amazing!!! Starting with you Nichole! Can’t wait to hear your voices!

  • 157
    Carol says:

    I would have never guessed Papertrey Radio but it’s a great idea. How cool! Although I don’t want to hear my voice, but hearing the PTI team is so cool. The new website looks like it’s going to be great, I love the sneak peek you’ve given us.

  • 158
    Melissa Hungria says:

    What a fabulous way to keep in contact with us! You said it best – we can listen to you while we stamp??? My husband will never believe that I’m actually listening about stamping! I can’t wait to hear all the things I’ll learn!

  • 163
    Kelly says:

    Love the podcast idea. I will follow PTI regularly through this medium. I look forward to hearing the voices that go with these creative minds – questions to be answered – how does Nicole come up with her new and different techniques, how does Dawn come up with such wonderful color combos, how does Mish take it beyond card making and put together her kits, and how does Heather decide on a paper design. Just a few of the questions running through my head! Can’t wait.

    How cool is this! The radio!!!! As for who I would like to see interviewed would be of course all of you of the paper trey ink team.

You all do so much to help us create so thank you very much.

    Reading people’s blogs allows you to feel some of their personality, but hearing someone’s voice pulls you in that much more and makes you feel even more connected to them. You talked about making all of us become more a part of the Papertrey family, and the radio/podcast idea definitely does it. You have proven once again that Papertrey is the most innovative papercrafting company out there!

    Wow! How exciting-I would love to actually put voices with all of my favorite PaperTrey designers. Since I read all of their blogs regularly-to hear a voice too-would be a bonus. I remember when I initially stumbled upon Nichole’s blog and purchased the very first Paper Trey ink stamp set-which I still use ALL of the time. Wow has this company grown-I am so excited for you all!

  • 201

    Papertrey Radio is not anything I would have ever guessed in a million years, but I like it! I already feel like so many of the PTI gals are friends of mine, it’ll be fun to hear their voices!

    And I’m very excited about a new, improved website! I wonder what kind of goodies you’ll have in store for us then? Looking forward to lots of pretty pictures to get the creative juices flowing!

  • 202
    Cathy Boeche says:

    How exciting! I can’t wait to call in and wish you a Happy Anniversary! I would love to hear from you and all of the designers, especially Michelle Wooderson. It would be so neat to hear their design ideas and steps rather than just seeing pictures. Thanks!

  • 203
    Jeni says:

    I can’t wait for the future installments of Papertrey Radio. It would be great to hear from the memebers of the design team & the designers of Papertrey stamps. I would love to hear how they come up with all of their ideas.

  • 204
    Mary Duffek says:

    WOW…that is pretty cool and inovative! I think the radio idea is some and something I’d like to hear are interviews first from your wonderful DT to get to know them and other uber talented card makers/scrapbookers. Thanks and good luck!

  • 205
    Sharon Knitter says:

    I think the idea of PTI radio is great. I already left a message and it was as easy as can be. What a fun celebration!

  • 206
    Jennifer K says:

    Papertrey Radio – what a cool idea! Maybe we’ll have Papertrey TV next year with all kinds of how-to videos!

  • 207
    Rose R says:

    Wow! What a novel idea! It would be great to hear from all of the design team. You are certainly a great team!

  • 208
    Kim Z says:

    What a fantastic idea! I hope we get to meet and watch each of the designers show off their techniques along with their “tricks” of their trade. I’d also like a Q & A for each designer!
    Thanks ladies, my Ipod awaits you!!!!!

  • 209
    Karen says:

    It just amazes me what you and your team come up with! As well as hearing from all the designers, I’d love to know a little more about the background processes we don’t ever see, and maybe a show about the history of Papertrey. I can’t wait to see the new “store,” because frankly, I thought the current one was pretty easy to use already.

  • 210

    How exciting!! PTI Radio!!! Wow–the possibilities are amazing! I’m looking forward to the new website, too! Rock on girls!

  • 211
    Erin Vandervelde says:

    I love it! What an innovative idea! Thanks Nichole and everybody else at Papertrey.

    cynthia says:

    I love hearing everyones voices. It gives me a feeling of real friendship. Its like I don’t really know someone until I hear their voice. I loved hearing Dawns voice in her new videos. Shes my idol and I would love to hear her interviewed. Thanks so much

  • 213
    Chris says:

    I think the podcasts will be great fun. I’ve really enjoyed the videos from Dawn and Becky lately on their blogs, so I’m sure this will be a great addition to the information that you already put out there for us. And a new shopping site will be wonderful, too.

  • 217
    Ann H. says:

    PTI Radio, how cool is that! Hearing everyones voices will be so neat. That would be a great contest, having us guess who’s voice it is out of the PTI Team. Also, the new website looks awesome.

  • 218
    Laura F. says:

    I think I’m more excited about the website than Radio even!!! The preview looks great! Although I’ve had an iPod for awhile, having asmall more portable one would be great too, and I haven’t really gotten into the podcast thing yet, but perhaps the idea of podcast merged with my other love (stamping) will get me started!

  • 219
    Tiffani Hughson says:

    You’re on a roll! As Papertrey continues to grow, this seems just a genius way to make the stamping’ community’ seem smaller. Love it!

  • 220
    Kelly Schirmer says:

    Oh my gosh, get outta here! How fun was that? And an IPod in Aqua, swoooooon! I loved hearing your voice, and I must stay, it is as smooth as your projects, giggle! I would love to see Jessica Witty share some ideas and laughs with us on a podcast…she’s had me in stitches with her blog posts!

  • 221
    Anita says:

    What an exciting announcement. I love the idea of being able to hear the voices of the design team and other callers. It will make the whole PTI experience (which is already AMAZING) even better. Having the podcasts stored on my iPod might be a bit problematic though. I may never listen to my husband and daughter again because “Shhh, Nichole is talking” – Just kidding. πŸ™‚

  • 222

    Sue McKibben says:

    PTI radio is a great, and very innovative concept! I like the idea that I can listen to the podcast whenever it is convenient for me. I would love to hear interviews with the design team – especially to get some of their tips and tricks for designing cards.

  • 227

  • 236
    Kathy G says:

    What a unique idea! I would love to hear from everyone on the design team. I know everyone would have a ton of questions about their design process.

  • 237

    Get outta here? PTI Radio?
    You are so cutting edge! I can’t wait. Finally an avenue for us crafters!!!

    Next, PTI TV!!!

    I am excited to meet and hear each PTI DT member. I can’t wait to hear how the stamp designers got their start. Also, I am interested in hearing how you, Nichole got your start too. What an undertaking. And you do it all so well!

    Happy Anniversary PTI!!!

    You and your team HAVE been very busy! OH MY! Is this a great anniversary or what??!!!! and we, your crazy, inky-fingered customers get all the benefits! Woo Hoo! Can’t wait to hear the downloads and play on the new site. THANKS for another wonderful 3rd anniversary day!

  • 244
    Erin says:

    Wow!! This is such an exciting day! I can’t wait to hear the pocasts! I hope you will start by interviewing the design team and maybe give some tips/pointers on their particular design style. Such fun!!

  • 245
    Kellie says:

    Wow, I’ve never heard of such a thing. This will be fun! I can’t wait to see how you use the radio in your business!

    And I’m so excited to hear about the new shop!!!

  • 246

    You guys are totally keeping us guessing.. Neat idea! I would love to see you interview Sally Lynn, Lori Craig, or Sharon Harnist they are awesome creative girls. If you can get Sally Lynn to stay still she is a motherload of information!

  • 249
    Dana says:

    Leave it to PTI to be always on the forefront! I can’t wait to hear the podcasts…and love your idea of “giving back” a little by letting your customers call in. How clever!
    Honestly, I’d like to just listen to interviews, tips and hints, and general “chatter” among you and the team, Nichole. You are amazing PTI.

  • 250

    Well, that came out of left field but OH.MY.GOSH. Podcasts on stamping from my one of my favorite stamp companies! LOVE THIS! But then, you’re always blowing me away with your creativity and innovation, Nichole!

  • 251
    mary ann says:

    What a great idea! Now I’ll be listening to stamping ideas while I am actually stamping! My poor husband – there is no escaping it!!!

    Wow–two great ideas. Love the new store idea. I can hardly wait to see it. And the radio……kewl……

  • 253
    Lisa says:

    How exciting is this!!??!!?? What a fantastic idea, and an easy way to help answer the many (many, many, many) questions I am sure PTI fans have!

  • 254

    Wow, you are always full of surprises and thinking totally out of the box again! Who would have ever guessed a radio show! Please interview Mish…I love her style and we seem to have so many things in common!
    The iPod would be handy to have as I train for my triathlon!

    Can hardly wait until tomorrow!

  • 255

    Papertrey radio… how awesome is that … achance to hear our favoirte designers and be inspired to use those stamps even more… Thanks for so many great designs

  • 257
    Alanna says:

    This is seriously too cool. I can’t wait to hear the podcasts. I’d love to hear directly from each design team member along with other names from the stamping industry.

    And I’m super excited about the new shopping experience. Can’t wait.

  • 258
    Jolene S says:

    HOW FUN!!! I LOVE this idea! I love how PTI puts itself out-there in front of us customers in as many ways as possible and this is just another one of those ways!

    One thing that I think would be fun is to have the winners of the “I want it all package” after every release, to call in and have a short little interview about why they love PTI, a certain set…. something along those lines.

    Same thing with the GSS… pretty much have the q&a that is emailed in the newsletter in audio form!

  • 259
    Suzanne says:

    This is totally amazing, exciting, and FUN! I am so impressed by how much thought and effort seems to have gone into this. I can’t wait to see the new website!

  • 260

    PTI radio? That sounds very intriguing! It will be great to hear the voices of all the DT members. What a cool way to connect!

  • 261
    Denise says:

    I am very excited about Papertrey Radio! Again, you are thinking outside the box in regards to papercrafting. It will be fun to be able to stamp and listen to the podcast at the same time. It will also be fun to attach a real voice to the people we have grown to love through the blog world!!

  • 262

    I think it’s a very cool idea and I’m looking forward to it! I just called in and left a message even though I hate to hear my southern accent on tape!

    Besides interviews with the design team, I would also like to hear interviews with you, Nichole, and other industry insiders.

  • 263

    How very exciting! I’m a HUGE fan of podcasts, so I can’t wait!

  • 264
    Marcie S. says:

    This is unbelievable. You take Papertrey Ink to new heights every day Nichole! I am continually astounded by your creativity and inventiveness…am I gushing?? πŸ™‚

  • 265
    Loydene says:

    While I sense your excitement, I think that paper crafting is a very visual medium. I hope that fact isn’t lost in the excitement about pod-casting. I love SEEING your cards, and those of the design team and the visual step outs are relevant and important teaching tools.

  • 266

    How awesome is this! You are so “cutting edge” and for a company to be as customer service oriented as you gals is a breath of fresh air. It is one of the many reasons I love PTI so much. The website looks great and I can’t wait!

  • 273
    Karin says:

    Wow…Talk about innovation! You are taking things into the stratosphere with this concept! Looking forward to what this year will hold…I would love to hear Nichole, Dawn and Mish all together! They seem like such great friends and I’m sure it would be a blast!

    Angela says:

    Well isn’t that fun. I don’t have an IPod and wouldn’t know the first thing about downloading a podcast, but it was really nice to have a voice to go with your face that I see beaming from your website. I’m actually just amazed at all of the directions this craft can take you, and so excited for you and your team as you take us along with you.
    Thanks for being so very clever and innovative!

    I didn’t hear a thing. Help!!! Great idea, maybe something is just wrong with my end. I do not know. Cannot wait to hear the announcement!

  • 280
    Sally says:

    Love the idea of the Papertrey Radio. I would like each guest designer interviewed during their 2-month stint with PTI. Also, each design team member as they each have such a unique style. So exciting! What a great idea.

  • 281
    Jennifer Delaurier says:

    This is the coolest idea I have ever heard! It is going to be so cool to be able to tune in and listen to your interviews and design members. I think you should hold a contest with your team and we have to try and guess whose voice it is or something to the effect. I think it will make them all seem more like friends than they already are! Can’t wait!

  • 282
    andie... says:

    haha, what a fun idea! i think it will be neat to hear what everyone’s voices sound like…it will be more personable…so now we can put a voice to the pretty faces!

  • 289
    Erika Hyde says:

    This is awesome!! I think it would be amazing for you to interview members of the senior design team and the stamp set designers so they can give some insight into their creative processes and how they get inspired to create the images for their sets. I think that it’s a wonderful breakthrough in technology and that you are definitely thinking outside the box and staying ahead of the curve!

  • 290
    Sara Lincoln says:

    Radio?!?!?! That is such a great idea.. i can hardly wait until Spring!! I truly think that is a great idea. PTI is and the Team is always so helpful, with their amazing Blogs and How To’s, a radio station will only increase the creativity!!! Again, what a great idea!!!!! What will you think of next…

  • 291
    Leigh Ann Routh says:

  • 294

    Wow, what an amazing idea! I can’t believe I’ll actually get the chance to hear all of your voices so I can really feel like we’re all BFF’s! πŸ™‚ Good luck with this new venture, I know it’s going to be awesome!

  • 298
    Carrie T says:

    This is a really great idea! I have to say that part of it is curiosity as to what everyone’s voice sounds like. We see your pictures and read your words, but it will be cool to hear your voices. I’d love to have the design team interviewed first, especially Mish. It was her blog that I came across first in 2008 that led me to PTI. I love her style, creativity, and her awesome sense of humor!

    This is fantastic!!! Just more ways to keep us inspired and tapping into our creative side! Can’t wait to hear more from the Design team!!!! I’d love for you to have more interviews with them on their scrapbook style, organization, tips, techniques, etc.
    Barb M. in PA

  • 307

    I think you’ve got a great idea going on.
    I’d love for each designer to talk about what they do when and if they lose their mojo or if they ever lose their mojo. Also, how each one finds the time to craft and still have time for family.
    I can’t wait to go shopping on the new Web site.
    Thanks for the chance to win something.

    I’m very excited about Papertrey Radio. I just got an iPhone & am subscribing to podcasts left & right; can’t wait to hear you & the design team on the new program.
    I’d be interested in hearing a timeline of the process of getting ready for each month’s new release – from the views of the DT, Nichole & the office/warehouse people.

    Laura G. says:

    Wow, just when we think it can’t get any better…it does! What will you ladies think of next. I’m not going to suggest one single thing because I know nothing I could suggest could be any better than what (I’m sure) you already have planned for us. I can’t wait!

    Radio, interesting. I like the idea of interviews with different designers and maybe craft industry personalities. It is GREAT that you are taking questions from the “audience.” I generally prefer to watch something, but I will definitely give this a try for a couple of weeks. Please also consider making the podcast available in a non-itunes format.
    Thanks for all your creativity!

    Can’t wait to see the new website, too!

  • 408
    Linda says:

    Nicole, you constantly amaze me with your new improvements and ideas but I never imagined a “radio spot”. I think that’s what makes PTI and your blog so impressive to come back to over and over is that you are sincerely listening to your readers and always looking for ways to improve and inspire. You are amazing.

  • 409

  • 428

    I love the idea of PTI podcast. I plan on planning on taking each one on my daily walk. I see my ipod being taken over with PTI pod casts. Move over Lady Gaga!

    I would love to hear from a featured forum member each week. I love getting to know everybody, and wouldn’t it be great to have a voice with a name.

    Then maybe a segment on product reviews by real folks, not by people in the industry that say everything is great because they are getting paid to say it, but by regular folks that are honest.

    I’m wondering if the replacement GSS spot will have something to do with Radio PTI.

    A photography segment on how to take better pics of your projects for regular folk with non-professional equipment. A kind of a how to with what you already have around the house.

    And maybe a monthly try a new technique challenge just for Radio PTI listeners.

    Happy Anniversary PTI! Each day keeps getting better and better!

  • 429
    Tina H. says:

  • 434
    Kim Prakken says:

    What exciting news, Nicole. PaperTrey Radio. When I listened to your announcement, my thought was that your voice didn’t sound like what I thought it would. You sounded great, just not what I had in my head. I think PaperTrey Radio will be fun and inspiring.

    Nichole, you keep coming up with the greatest ideas for Papertrey. I am looking forward to hearing from all of the design team members, it will be great to put a voice with the face. Also the peak of the new web site looks great.

    Lacey says:

    I love crafting podcasts, but I’m especially excited for this to be a radio program so I can craft while I listen. Otherwise I end up just watching the podcast and don’t get any crafting done! Please make one of the topics about finding inspiration and how the DT members make time to stamp.

    Deb M says:

    Wow! I’m excited about this. I used podcasts from a couple in Spain to learn Spanish. So the thought of hearing tips and techniques while I’m driving (I plug my iPOD into an adapter that plays out my tapedeck) is awesome! I love Dawn McVey’s blog and would love to hear you feature her in an interview.

    Christine Rogus says:

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEHAWWWWW!!! I am over the moon!!!! Boy oh boy I can’t wait to start listening to you gals. What a treat this will be. I would love to hear Mish and Debbie and Dawn and the whole design team at that. I did have an Ipod, but my daughter has taken over that, so I might have to steal it back if I don’t win this one.LOL!!!

    Before reading anything, my eyes went straight to the little microphone..how COOL is that. I would like to hear an interview of all your team designers on how they started in papertrey and what would they like to accomplish…Can I be part of your team? LOL

  • 449
    Kris A says:

    OH MY!!! What a TOTALLY AWESOME announcement. Love that we will be able to “hear” from the DT. I would love to hear from Michelle, Dawn and Debbie. Guess this means I need to either win or purchase an IPOD!

    Carrie Mathison says:

    I’m sure it would be great if you are at the right place at the right time. I do most of my papertrey communication on a public computer without sound, so unfornuately i won’t able to listen much. Way to go on keeping up with current technology and ways to reach all people.

  • 451

  • 453
    Amy says:

    Holy Wah! Papertrey is always on the move. What a whirlwind! Interviews with Papertrey artists, designers, and support folks are a must. I listen to many podcasts on my ipod or copied to cd to listen to in my car. Stamping is so visual, I can’t “picture” the types of podcasts you will have. Perhaps some reviews and opinions about various products.

  • 454
    Stephanie King says:

    Papertrey Radio sounds really exciting! It’s neat that the company is branching out to bring the “entire package” to its customers. I’m so excited for the first podcast!

  • 455
    Nancy Nelson says:

    Saying this will show my age but, I am always amazed at the technology that is available today! Putting a voice to your face was so fun. I can’t wait for this adventure to start! I just want to take this opportunity to let the whole PTI Team know how much I appreciate them from you (Nicole)through to the people behind the scenes, specially the people that pack up the orders and get them out to us. Without our product where would we be! So at sometime I would like hear from someone who works behind the scenes that we don’t know but keeps the process moving.

    Radio never even occured to me, but now that I think about it – what a great idea! I would really like to hear about how people got started in the industry, how “amateurs” find time to make projects and keep up a blog, what inspires them, how they ‘play’ with a new stamp set, etc.

  • 472
    Denise Erickson says:

    I am very excited about Papertrey Radio. It will be great to actually hear your voices in the comfort of my own home. It is just one more way that as customers, we will get the chance to know each of you even better. And quite frankly I can never get enough PTI in my day πŸ™‚

I’d like to hear their thoughts on why they started to scrap and what they think about the way the industry is evolving. Hope I win that iPod!

  • 503
    Allison Taylor says:

    What a clever idea! I would love to hear about the thoughts that went into designing particular stamp sets. Maybe an interview with the stamp designer so they can explain the behind the scenes process about the set and “why” the set is the way it is?

    Looking forward to this new feature – I can’t wait to start downloading so I can listen while I am at the gym!

  • 504
    MaryBeth says:

I want to hear about the design process for stamp designers, the process for picking new colors and how to use tools. Do some audio scavenger hunts or website tours.

I can’t wait to hear from all of your designers and design team members, and of course Julie and Jane! Would really like hearing about what inspires them, and what sort of inspiration they used for designing particular stamp sets, etc. Oh, and the ipod would be great too!

    Radio podcasts sound so fun! It’s always neat to be able to hear the voices that go along with the photos. Congratulations on the new venture and I look forward to hearing everyone soon!

    Papertrey Radio is sheer genius! Now is the time to buy stock in Papertrey because just like eBay, it’s going to sky rocket! I’m looking forward to podcast interviews with the entire PTI design team. And I love the fact that the podcasts will be archived and also available on iTunes! TouchΓ© PTI!

  • 562

    Nice one, I’ve learned a lot from here and I think they are also cool!

    Ginny says:

    the PTI radio is going to an amazing resource for every stamper, beginning or not! now i’ll know where to direct my newly converted ‘stamp addicts’ when they have a question or two! πŸ˜€ great idea!

    also, the store looks like it will be simply amazing–i can see how much work you’ve put into it–WOW.

    great job Nichole! you and your team are such an inspiration πŸ˜€

    Papertrey Ink has always been a step ahead of other companies and it’s great to see you still enjoy rounding up new ideas – like the radio! How cool is that?! I also appreciate that you have us, the customer, in mind as you continue to grow and evolve.

  • 568

    How cool is this! I never would have thought about podcasting, but it’s a terrific idea. I loved hearing your voice today–now I have a voice to go with the blog photo and I feel like I know you even better! I’d love to hear from all of the Design Team members. This is going to be fun!!!

    Kim M says:

    I am blown away, radio…what an awesome idea! I would love to hear segments from you and the other designers on how you come up with all your ideas and how you keep all the ideas flowing. The amount of creativity that goes into PTI just continues to amaze me!

  • 573

    Chelsea says:

    What a FANTASTIC idea! I’m excited to see who you will interview over the next few months to kick things off and, of course, here tips and tricks. I think it would be awesome to have audio interviews from trade shows you attend, too.

  • 576
    Kimberly Ann says:

    I think this is going to be really interesting to see how you turn what is a very visual art into an audio presentation. I’m going to tune in and see what I can learn.

    Another great idea! I spend a lot of time driving around and running errands. With Papertray Radio, I can take my beloved hobby with me. People will be wondering why I’m smiling so much when shopping for groceries! πŸ˜‰

  • 582
    Carol says:

    I would love to hear each of your designers and design team members interviews over the course of time. I love the different styles your team imparts – from crisp and clear to shabby chic. I would also love to know a little bit about the process of designing from concept to final stamp set – if it were possible to do that without revealing proprietary information. Sometimes you have shared idea sketches and I am so amazed at how they transform to a final product. And, as a big fan of your clean lines, I wonder how on earth you create such crisp images. If nothing more, it would just be great to hear a little about the creative process in general – from brainstorming to concept development.

  • 583
    Kristie P says:

    What an awesome idea! I can’t wait to hear the podcasts! What an exciting new venture for you as well as all the PTI customers πŸ™‚ I’d love to see a “tips and tricks” type segment for using some of the stamps (especially from Kelly) even the older ones. Best of luck on your new adventure!

  • 584

    PTI Radio! How cool is that! Can’t wait to literally hear more about PTI designers!

  • 594
    Kerry says:

    PTI Radio! How much fun! I would love to hear from the designers about how they get their ideas, what they use for color inspirations, what their must-have tools are, how much time it takes to work out an idea, how much product they end up throwing away (I can’t be the only one who creates a dud, right?). I think it would be really nice to know that they are people too, who make mistakes and struggle with ideas. Give us hope!

  • 595
    Ginny Schleich says:

    What a very cool concept! It was nice to hear your voice, Nicole. I would love to hear interviews with all of the designers.

    TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!
    Those are my thoughts on the new Papertrey Radio and new website πŸ™‚
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!
    We just upgraded our website at the company I work and I know how monumental that task is.
    As for the radio – so excited that I will be able to listen to them on my ipod when I’m running πŸ™‚ (multi-tasking at its best)
    I already have the Papertrey Radio number programmed into my phone πŸ™‚
    Yay!!!!

    Hi again, I just left a message on the radio and love this idea! I love to listen to podcasts everyday when I walk my dog.

    Kathy V. says:

    How much fun is this! I’d love to hear you interview Michelle, Debbie, Niki,–oh good grief, all the “girls”! You’ve all become like friends, and to actually hear you explaining a technique or talking about what inspires you (or hearing Michelle actually give a “snort”!!!), well that would just be the best. Looks like 2010 is going to be a big year for PaperTrey AND for us loyal customers. Yahoo!

  • 603

    How exciting! I am looking forward to hearing some of our questions answered!

  • 604
    TR says:

    The radio program sound like a great idea.
    Above Rubies Studio (Meg) would be fun to
    interview. Could you get a hold of Carol
    Duval. I think she would have a blast doing
    something like this since she retired.

  • 605
    Heather says:

    How cool is that?! I’m so excited to put voices with faces. You know, we see pictures all the time, but sometimes you a pre-conceived notion of how someone sounds based on how they look, so it’ll be cool to get my thoughts in sync with reality, lol. But I’m also excited to interact with PTI this way as well! And I love that the Podcasts will be on iTunes, so I can just download them automatically. Really cool concept and I’m excited to participate!

  • 606
    JenniferCR says:

    WOW…Papertrey Radio! What an awesome idea!!! I love the idea of being able to hear and “connect” with all of you, the designers, of PTI. I think that makes you, as a company, so much more personable. I think this speaks volumes as to how much you value what you think of your customers and I LOVE that! And as a side note, I don’t own an iPod yet…seriously, I most be one of the few to not have one yet! Needless to say, I would be over the moon to win this iPod in Papertrey’s signiture color Aqua…I just LOVE that color too!

  • 610
    Christina says:

    I think the PT radio is a great idea to get to know ppl on a different level instead of reading an interview.

    I would like to know what inspires them. What’s important to them. How they sit down & get their mojo flowing.

PTI is my favorite company and I vist many of the DT blogs everyday. I always have such a hard time deciding what to purchase each month and now it sounds like it will be even harder to make up my mind with all of the new changes. Thanks so much for giving us a chance to win some of your great products.

    I agree with someone else’s comments that I think it would be fun for your to interview each other first and let us hear your voices and ideas. I love it when I’ve been following along on someone’s blog, and then I get to hear their voice. Congrats on the new store!

Thanks and kuddos for the innovation you are showing!

  • 630
    Janice C. in NY says:

    Hi there! “Paper Trey radio” that is a interesting idea. I just listened to your introductory message and I asked myself where is the visual image. I am not “into” radio or pod casts, unless I am in my car. I would tend to expect a post to You-Tube, so that a demonstration or interview can be seen AND heard. I would also think from a marketing perspective that a visual image along with the interview would help you to “sell” your stamps and accessories. I know I like what I see, but just hearing about it…eh- not so much.
    I hope I am wrong and that this new endeavor is a huge success for you.

  • 631
    Joni Kix says:

    Seeing that it’s a stamping site, I would have thought you’d be using something with video for demos, interviews, and inspiration. I’m going to be listening in to “hear” how it all works out!

  • 632
    Anya says:

    What an incredible idea! I can’t wait! I am looking forward to not only all the information and inspiration to be had from the program, but also hearing all the DT members’ voices! It might sound silly, but it has been such an endearing experience to actually hear Dawn’s and Nichole’s voices that I can’t wait to hear the rest of the groups’ as well!

    This is just so exciting. I am not sure how it all works but it would nice to see a little video of everyone on the design teams to get to know them a little better. It is fun to follow their blogs but it would be interesting to hear about their lives in their own voices. Also, it would be great to have some tutorials.

  • 671
    Francie says:

    What a fun new way to get inspiration from the Papertrey team! I look forward to hearing interviews with the team — learning more about their design process, how they got started with stamping and “made it” in the stamping world, what stamping technique/fad they once used and loved but now makes them cringe, funny stories about their design mistakes, inspiration stories about their design successes, funny stories about each other they can/will share, and whatever else they want to share with us. What a great opportunity to get to “know” you all a bit more. I actually thought you were going to branch out into videos after Dawn and Becky started posting filmed tutorials, so audio downloads are a pleasant surprise. I like being able to download these for later listening. By the way, I don’t have an iPod and winning one sure would make it easier to listen while riding the NYC subway. Thanks for continuing to amaze us and for offering a great iPod prize!

    Just leave a comment letting us know what you think of our Papertrey Radio announcement. Who would you like to see us interview over the course of the year?
