Need A Stocking Stuffer Idea? Try Stickers!

We get this question a lot during the holidays:
“What’s a good stocking stuffer gift idea?”
Well, we finally have the perfect answer:
STICKERS!!!!!

Funny Stickers From Steel Petal Press
Check out these ✨BRAND NEW✨ sticker designs from Steel Petal Press!

Why stickers?
Well, we have a couple criteria that we use to decide
what makes a GOOD stocking stuffer:
1. A great price point (usually on the low end, under $5)
2. A large selection of styles within the same type of product
(because you’re usually buying multiples and for different people)
3. Small in size, can easily fit inside a stocking!
Stickers are all of these thing…AND MORE!
Bottom line: we think they’re the best stocking stuffer gift 🎁


We’ve stocked the store with a HUGE variety, including our very own designs (which can also be shopped online) and designs from other great vendors. Be sure to grab them while you can and stuff those stockings full!

XOXO,
Steel Petal Press

October Rewind – Gettin’ Spooky at SPP

Goodbye October Hello November Banner Month Rewind From Steel Petal Press

October went by SCARY fast but we had plenty going on to keep as busy as bees! Check out what we did this past month in our October Rewind.

Quarterly Inventory:
Every business quarter, so roughly 4x a year, we conduct a inventory of all of our warehouse items. A majority of these items are the SPP products such as cards, magnets, gift bags, etc. that are waiting to be shipped for online/wholesale orders OR to be placed/sold in our retail store.

Letterpress Greeting Cards Counting Inventory
Here’s Shelby counting some of our cards but this is an ALL HANDS ON DECK task so every member of SPP is scheduled to help until the task is complete!

Once everything is counted (BY HAND!), our Shipping Manager Rachel compares the hand counted numbers to the ones found in our inventory management system. The ultimate goal is to have everything match…but of course that’s highly unlikely due to human error. So, she does her best to reconcile and account for the any differences and we start fresh with accurate numbers for next quarter. The best part of inventory? THE TACOS THAT SHAYNA BUYS US!

Finalized/Printed New 2020 Release:
YOU READ THAT RIGHT – We finished our first release for 2020. All of our new cards were printed in house (per usual) but we also created some really cool new stickers, mugs, mental health trackers, and even funny little desk notepads! In total, there’s roughly 27 new items coming your way. To learn more about these new styles, be sure to check out Part II of our New Release Journey blog series that’ll be dropping in the next week or 2.

In the mean time, here’s a sneak peek at some of those new items:

We freakin’ love Halloween. There’s nothing much more to say than that…so enjoy a few photos from Halloween 2019 at Steel Petal Press:

Planning for America’s Mart AND NYNow 2020:
For the first time in Steel Petal Press history, we are doing back-to-back shows starting in 2020. To kick off the new year, we’ll be attending America’s Mart (ATL) in mid-January and then heading off to NYNow (NYC) the first of February. We’ve finalized our booth locations (ATL: #7-2509/ NYC: #7215) but in the coming months we’ll be planning EVERYTHING else. Stay tuned for more updates…

Thanks for checking out our October Rewind. We have so much more exciting news to fill you in on as the busiest months approach so be sure to come back and read all about it 🙂

XOXO,
Steel Petal Press
