Well Hello There

Welcome to Beyond The Grommets: the wonders, wanders and what-nots from The Gift Wrap Company Design Studio. Catchy huh?! We are a diverse group of eight cheeky young ladies who design all the products found in The Gift Wrap Company’s range (lovingly referred to here on out as TGWC, I hope you can appreciate the short and sweet!).

Referred around the company as “The Boston Studio” in actuality we are not in Boston proper but rather about 40 miles west in a town called Hudson. Day in and day out we work together (and quite well I happily report) to keep the product line fresh, be innovative and most importantly to create fun designs you all will love to see adorning our products.

So please check in and enjoy our ramblings while we attempt to inspire, educate and maybe even enlighten about the little bits and bites that happen
beyond the grommets.

The Countdown Begins…NSS here we come!

Yes, its almost here! The big day, the most anticipated event of the season, opening day of the National Stationery Show: May 21!  We are gearing up for the show with lots & lots of planning, prepping and packing. As always, we have some creative projects in the works, a new look for our booth and of course some fabulous new products to share with you. We hope to see you in less than a month at Booth 2012! Contact Customer Service to schedule an appointment during the show…and hurry, they are filling up fast!

NSS WIP

the game plan…looks good on paper

So much goes into making sure we have the best show possible, from concept to construction. The show lasts 4 days, but we plan for 4 months! From shopping to shipping, there are so many details to consider and every year we get a little better at making sure everything runs smoothly.

Enjoy some of our early progress pics…and imagine how cool the booth is going to look with all this freshly stained wood! nsspreview1nss preview3nss preview2Special thanks to our special helper, my handy husband Jared. I literally could not have done it without you. Or at least without a pickup truck…those boards were 16 feet long!

Can’t wait to see how it all turns out?? Stay tuned for more sneak peeks!

As the Creative Coordinator at The Gift Wrap Company, I spend my days planning our trade shows, styling theme shots for our catalogs and a number of oddball things in between. I love experimenting with new ways to use paper and ribbon because the possibilities are endless! By the end of a good day I am usually covered in glitter and have tape stuck somewhere to my body.
