Tester post in the new blog format. Shiny and new!!
Do you work new blog?
I hate to bring up the end of summer, cuz it just started in our neck of the woods……BUT…..the news is just to exciting not to share. All of our fall designs just arrived and are up on the site! Check em out and let us know what you think. There’s 46 new designs total! And the addition of the new Women’s Crew line. We heard a lot of people wishing we carried a the same high quality sock, with the same fun designs, just in a shorter sock for women, and we listened. Included in this new line is the Bacon and Eggs sock, and the Sushi sock, just to name a few….mmmmm bacon…..mmmm……sushi….is it lunch time yet?
And then you can’t forget about the new knee highs. Fox in Tree is oh so cute, and Birds on Wire, in both grey and teal, have already gotten some buzz. But you’ll have to take a look cuz there’s like hundreds more, at least that’s how it feels over here.
All the new styles have the new labels we finally decided on (thanks for your feedback) and new website is soon to follow. So many changes! We’re growing up! Thanks guys for your continued support. We couldn’t have done it with out you!
Now on to getting some lunch!
We’ve been busy here getting in restocks and all our new stuff for fall, which includes the new women’s crew line. Yippee! The 2nd 20 ft. container of all the new stuff arrived just yesterday, and we are organizing as we speak. Fun, new, joyous designs in your near future as well as our much anticipated new label. Thanks Fritz, local designer, for your help on the design.
Also, start sending us pictures of you wearing Sock it to Me’s. Our new website will have a front page of rotating pictures that our customers send in. Send em in and your sexy legs could be on the front page of our website!
I tried out that video function again on my camera to capture the unloading of the container, but it didn’t turn out so great, so I’m not going to post it. But in the mean time a little sneak peak of the new stuff for ya……
I kinda feel like updating this blog is like homework. I know I should do it and I know I planned to do it, but I’m always finding myself putting it off. I mean its fun when I actually have something I want to share, but when I put the parameters on myself to write weekly I find myself dreading the task because I don’t know what to write about. Well…here is something I can share, I just learned about this cool time lapse recording feature on my camera (Thanks Garrett) and think it will be fun to share stuff via short video clips. I tried it out last week when sending out some socks to Journeys. They are my biggest client and when they order they don’t mess around! This last order was 119 boxes which equals over 20,000 pairs of socks! That’s me in the video huffing the boxes with Kisa onto the truck. Bon voyage socks! Have a safe trip! (Since I was just getting used to this function, video comes in two parts.)………………a half hour later……..o.k. guys, this is going to have to be put on hold since I can’t seem to figure out how to get the video up. This post will be updated soon, once I get Amber’s tech brain on it. Check back soon. Thanks guys and gals! Happy Monday.
Amber to the rescue!
Not sure what to write about today….what kinds of things would guys like to hear about?
Was very busy the last couple weeks. Not only did we receive a 20ft container of product but I was also on a planning committee for an entrepreneurial event. I am a member of the local (Portland) entrepreneurial group StaveUps and we had a big event last weekend that was like a crash course for early stage businesses. It was a day and a half of networking, panel discussions on topics such as; raising money, branding, and sales. There were also keynote speakers, activities, and food. It was a lot of work but I was happy to be a part of it.
We’ve got some new branding going on ourselves. We are working on getting a new look to our website, labels, business cards, etc. We are going to keep the basics but just polish everything up a bit. Here is a sneak peak of what our new labels will look like:
We were going for something a little more professional and little less ameteur. I couldn’t get rid of the girl, although it was suggested. She’s just such intregarl part of the brand I couldn’t part with her. And speaking of “her” she doens’t even have a name. She is always referred to as “the girl”. Any suggestions?
That’s it for now. Thanks all for checking in.
