June Month Rewind!

It’s June and Summer is finally kicking into full gear. It’s been a wet and rainy but that hasn’t slowed us down any. Take a look at our June Month Rewind!

Goodbye June Hello July Steel Petal Press Month Rewind

Happy Father’s Day!
On June 16th, we helped celebrate everything that makes our Dad’s silly, ridiculous, and downright awesome! We love our collection of Father’s Day cards but we love that we get to share them with your Dads even more!.

New Retail Window Display!
This is one of the most fun and most difficult tasks we do at Steel Petal Press. It’s important to us that our window displays look beautiful and eye-catching…but it sure does require a lot of work! It was well worth it for this season’s window because it looks amazing. We drew inspiration from our favorite part of Summer: plants and leafy greens.

Look how pretty it is!

Working On the New Release!
With the August deadline beginning to appear on the horizon, we used the month of June to power through some important aspects of our upcoming release. Although it is going to be much smaller than previous releases, what makes this one so special is that we are introducing 3 brand new product categories (as in, WE’VE NEVER DONE THEM BEFORE!!!) Those categories are stickers, wine bags, and daily tracker. But of course, we have a few leafy-inspired card styles coming out, too! We honestly couldn’t be more excited to finalize the release but we can show you some sneak peeks of these new products…but it’ll be our little secret *wink, wink*

Shayna Went To Alaska!
In June, Shayna took her longest vacation since opening the Steel Petal Press brick + mortar location! She and her family went on a 10 day trip to Alaska. The photos were beautiful, and she had a lovely time, but it’s nice to have her back!

Thanks for tuning in to see what we did for the month of June!
