Here at Go La La! HQ we’d really love to be winding down for the Festive break, but things are still very hectic here. Even today we are sending out Christmas orders to customers who are leaving their card shopping to the very last minute, but it has been heartening to see that one of our more niche Christmas card ranges has gone down superbly with them. As a result, we have revamped the range and added another 4 designs for Christmas 2017.
Meanwhile our printer has just returned proofs for two more ranges which we will be launching at Spring Fair, and they are both looking great. One is somewhat risqué, and will appeal to a younger market while the other is suitable for all the family.
In media news this week we had a four question feature in the lovely local Somerset Cool blog and a few days later one of our saucy new ranges appeared in a feature in the industry’s Greetings Today Magazine, and we have been receiving some great feedback off the back of that.
This forthcoming week we will be completing design work on new cards for 3 of our most successful ranges as well as totally redesigning one range which we like, but is a little wordy. There’s also our Spring/Summer catalogue to work on. We are still finalising our planning for the aforementioned Spring Fair, and we will need to look into that quite carefully before Christmas is over. Bear in mind that if you are attending Spring Fair, we can be found on Stand 3K43, so please feel free pop over and say hello.
With Go La La!, this is the first time Laura and I have worked together full time, although we did work part time together for a few years, and our works Christmas Party will just involve the two of us, so snogging the other staff under the Christmas tree, and photocopying our genitals is probably going to be right at the top our of priorities…but I just hope we don’t end up talking about work all night.
We will be taking a short break over the year, when we will be heading to a small piece of granite with no TV, no wi-fi and no mobile phone signal, and hopefully there we can relax and forget about the business for a few days, before returning fully charged and raring to go in early January.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to one and all.
John and Laura
