Mother’s Day 2020 Gift Guide

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Welcome to the Steel Petal Press Mother’s Day 2020 gift guide.

Mother’s Day 2020 is coming up fast! These days we know so many parents are working double time having to home school AND work from home. Many of us adult kids won’t be able to see our Moms on Mother’s day due to shelter-in-place measures.

As always Steel Petal Press is here for you, we’re just doing it a little differently this year.

We’ve curated our MOTHER’S DAY section complete with Mother’s Day Cards, books, gifts and more. We have things for new moms, old moms, your friends that are moms, and your own mom.

We also have some great selling soaps and bath bombs. Does the mom in your life love cooking or kitchen items? Is she into journaling or puzzles?

Check out our MOTHERS DAY SECTION and show her some love!

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

Spring 2020 New Release – Part I

Can you believe we already have to start thinking and planning for our 2020 NEW RELEASE?! It’s bonkers…but true. It’s a time that’s full of mixed emotions: stress, excitement, frustration, happiness, and many more! However, the process of creating a New Release is integral in moving the brand forward in creative and compelling ways. It reminds our current shoppers why they love us and creates another opportunity to “woo” new customers.

To kick off a New Release, it’s allllll about creativity! We begin brainstorming and sharing ideas for cards and other gift items we make such as stickers, mugs, or even bookmarks. For this release, we are focusing on Mom, Dad, Grad, and Love cards as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduation, and Valentine’s Day will be the biggest upcoming holidays people will need cards for! For our gift items, we have a little more design freedom since these items aren’t geared towards a specific holiday.

Here we see initial ideas being presented for
further comments, questions, and critiques.

While this process can be fun, it can also be very tiring. It takes anywhere from 4-6 weeks from start to finish although we are ALWAYS thinking of new ideas so it never really stops. Additionally, it can be difficult to look at the same thing for so long and to constantly be listening to a pool of different opinions (but we truly value hearing them!).

Here we have Rachel (left), Dan (middle), and Shayna (right) discussing some of the
ideas and any necessary changes needed to make it stronger…
PLUS COFFEE (also a very important component of the design process, LOL!)

However for this release, the creative portion went a lot smoother than normal . At the end of only 2.5 weeks, we have a solid 27 NEW ITEMS that are completed and ready to move onto the next part of the process. That’s absolutely incredible, and to make it even better, we couldn’t be happier with the products we’ve created.

That’s a wrap…of this portion! In Part II, we’ll show a behind-the-scenes look into how these products are produced, including in-house and out-source creation. Stay tuned.
XOXO

New Release – Mental Health Trackers

Notepads to track your mental health on a daily or weekly basis

The last (but definitely not least) of our newest release is our Mental Health Trackers! These notepads a new product category for Steel Petal Press. They also mark the beginning of me talking more openly about Mental Health.

Mental Health is an issue that is near and dear to my heart. Having Steel Petal Press as a public company I wanted to be able to use this platform as a way to share my story and to help others feel less alone.

There was quite a bit of discussion about what would be constructive way to use Steel Petal Press as a platform. Would I just share my story on Social Media? Take the form of written blog posts? Be a product I created? What would that product look like?

I wanted more than an inspirational quote or words of encouragement. When someone is suffering from mental health issues inspirational seem trite and hopeless. (For me they actually made me feel worse.) I wanted to create a product that would actually be helpful, while also help me tell my story. My goal is to help others feel less alone. After much thinking, and overthinking, I decided to create these notepads.

I designed these Mental Health Trackers as a tool to aid anyone looking to improve their emotional well-being. The simple act of writing down your emotions on paper can often help us see the causes – and therefore – solutions more clearly.

It was a difficult decision for me to talk about my mental health issues publicly, but it’s a conversation that needs to be had. As vulnerable and uncomfortable as sharing my story makes me feel, the thought that it could help someone far outweighs the negatives.

Not only do I want to destigmatize the public opinion of what it means to struggle with mental illness but shed light on how isolating, painful and dangerous it can be.

I want to share my story but also the stories of others, because no one experience is the same. The more we talk about mental health the better we can understand each other, maybe together we can lessen the stigma and shame by sharing our experiences. I hope that through story telling, it can help others who are suffering can help feel a little less alone.
