Last year, when Erin Abdelnour set out to launch her online stationery store, http://www.theknottednote.com/, she knew one thing for sure: she needed REALLY good card stock!
Disappointed by limited choices of low quality card stock at her local arts and crafts store, Erin took her search to the worldwide web. There she found a number of suppliers, but was now faced with the problem of which to choose. What better way than to simply place an order and try them out!
Supplier one delivered merchandise that was improperly packaged and damaged in transit. Supplier two could not deliver the size of card stock Erin needed for her line of personalized note cards. Supplier three’s shipping costs were sky high! Who knew that card stock could be so complicated?
Then Erin found CardCardstock.com. First, she called to get advice regarding what card stock to select and was pleased to find a real, live, available, helpful, and friendly person on the other end. Feeling hopeful after her long tiring search, she placed an order. Her card stock arrived in a timely manner, free of shipping costs, and carefully wrapped. Her card stock had been cleanly cut to her exact specifications and was in pristine condition. But then for the real test: what would it feel like in her hand? Would it be crisp, weighty, and smooth? From the first touch, she was in love! Armed with her Neenah Classic Crest Smooth 110 Pound card stock, http://www.theknottednote.com/ was in business!
Since the discovery of CutCardstock, Erin has successfully launched http://www.theknottednote.com/ to include an offering of personalized stationery, announcements, and even recipe cards! Each is uniquely embellished with a ribbon and a charm. Her product is well received and her customers often comment on the quality of her card stock.
Erin was honored when her sister recently asked that The Knotted Note create her wedding invitations. With the resources available to her at CutCardstock, Erin was able to use new card stock and sizes to create the Save The Date, Wedding Invitation, and even the Thank You Notes.
