Looking forward to the Grand Opening

We have been getting some really nice treats from the other stores this week.  The sunflower card was handmade and signed by the team at Thousand Oaks, California.  It includes well wishes from all at their store.  The accordion card was sent from the Cambridge store and each page was created by a different person at the store.  It was so thoughtful and kind of the other stores to share with us.....I just had to share with my readers.  The book on the bottom our store made to bring with us when we trained in Chicago.  The cover is Sue Lindstrom the founder of Paper Source.
We learned while training that the wrapping paper with the Senior Portrait High School pictures all worked for Paper Source.  So, we thought it would be fun to make an album and have everyone sign it.  It was a great way to meet everyone too.  We have a great keepsake from our trip!!!!!
We also put up our first store window this week.  The window says I love my calender girl.  The designs on the paper were made with stencils and a versamark pad.  Our paper is perfect for that technique.....if you want to see a close-up click on the picture.  We have our Grand Opening this Saturday and I hope I am not too busy to take pictures to share.

Congratulations on your store opening! We had one open close to where I work recently and I've been reading the Paper Source blog, so I recall seeing the Princeton excitement. Hope your first few days have not been too exhausting!
