5th Anniversary Schedule of Events

By February 5, 2012General

If this is your first time stopping by for a visit, you may be wondering exactly what you have stumbled upon.  I am one of the co-owners of Papertrey Ink, a stamp company featuring quality photopolymer stamps with a simple style and endless possibilities. 


*We release new product on the 15th of every month.  This month marks our five year anniversary and we have a few extra special things going on this month.

*Beginning on the 5th, I will be showcasing just a little sneak peek of what's in store for the month along with making several big announcements of what's to come in the next year.  These sneak peeks & announcements will be posted at 7am EST each morning from the 5th through the 9th.

*Beginning on the 10th, I begin my traditional "countdown" here on my blog.  Countdown posts will go live at 7am EST every morning from the 10th through the 14th.  In these countdown posts, I will be featuring products that will be released on the 15th with projects, examples and tutorials.  

*If you see a new product you like during the countdown, please keep in mind that it will not be available for purchase until the 15th.

*The countdown commences with release day on the 15th.  At 7am EST on the 15th of each month a "reveal" post showcasing the full-reveal of all of the products for the month will go live.  There will also be a "Release in Review" post showcasing all of my favorite projects from the design team for the current release, while linking to each of their individual blogs that will be featuring all of their new release projects.  

*The release party will also begin at 7am EST on the morning of the 15th in our forum.  The day will feature lots of stamping friends chatting about the newest release. A release party contest that will go live on my blog at 7am EST will add to the fun.  The contest will be open for entries until 9:30pm EST and the winner will be announced shortly before the release at 10pm EST.

*The excitement concludes at 10pm EST the night of the 15th when the new product goes live in our store and is available for sale.

There will be daily challenges, contest and BIG prizes given away all TEN days, so you won't want to miss a single moment!  

Be sure to check our February Release Winners Page HERE daily, after Noon EST, to see if you are a lucky winner.

Enjoy the countdown!  All of us at Papertrey Ink hope you enjoy celebrating our BIG 5 with us!

    sano says:

    Not too happy to hear that you are not including the CD cases with your stamp set. I cannot find these in my area and think you should offer the option of having them or not. I hope the stamp set prices will be reduced to reflect the lack of the CD case. Sometimes change is not for the best and this is one time. Sorry but I want them back!!!!

  • 71
    Kim E. says:

    I have followed several blogs of your team for a couple of years before making the jump into stamping this past summer – since then my collection has grown exponentially (especially after Christmas – thanks Mom!)and I don’t even look at other stamp companies as I love the versatility of your stamps – the ability to customize my image by mixing and matching stamps fascinates me. Keep up the good work!

    Having a lot of fun this week. πŸ˜‰ LOVE all the lovely cards and samples for the new products. I like the look of the new website (store), too. I was wondering if the Forum is scheduled to be up again anytime soon? I’ve been trying to get on several times today with no luck. Also, with the new website, will there be a button on each stamp’s product page to add the index label to the cart, especially for the $5 stamp sets, as they were before? Or will there be a new way to purchase the labels for those smaller sets? Anyway. I’m hoping to get on the forum soon. Happy Anniversary to my favorite craft company! πŸ˜‰
