We've been so ridiculously busy these past two months - moving our store to the front of the building, redesigning our tour - we didn't have time to do an August newsletter. So we'll make up for it right now! Big time. With more than 10,000 subscribers, we must be doing something right and I think you'll be happy, maybe even delirious, with what we're offering this month. For sticker-lovers on a budget and collector's who are always on the lookout for a one-of-a-kind (these are definitely one-of-a-kind), you'll have a field day.

 

And for anybody wondering how to make Halloween healthy, happy and no-fat - we've got the ticket - HALLOWEEN BARGAIN BONANZAS. You're going to be the hit of your neighborhood. I guarantee it! And at what an unbeatable price! There are fifty sheets in each pack, hopefully just enough to give as treats to little gremlins knocking on your door.

 

 




NATURAL ART EMBELLISHMENTS - VALUE PACK #1

 

These handcrafted stick-on embellishments were made exclusively for us as prototypes. This collection includes twenty different designs made of everything from natural fibers to flowers and ferns. These will add a touch of nature to everything from lunch bags to party invitations. Many of these designs are now in our regular line in different packaging with a few design tweaks. So we are selling these very handsome, finely-detailed prototypes at a good price.

There is an incredible variety of stickers and sticker materials in this package including: Photoessence Extraordinary, repositionable, vellum, foil stamped and on and on.

THE COLLECTOR'S CORNER - ALL COLLECTIONS WILL BE SIGNED BY ANDREA GROSSMAN

 

 

THE COLLECTOR'S ULTIMATE GRAB BAG

 

OK, I've got twelve of these collections and each one is a little different. They date from the 80's to the mid-90's. Some are earlier, some are later. It's a wonderful hodge podge and to top it off, just for this collection, I'm including twelve of our red heart stickers that we printed in our own factory on our own presses on January 5, 1993. These were the first stickers we ever printed in-house! Each sheet will contain twelve hearts and will be signed on the back by my mom, Andrea Grossman.

 

We discovered the products in this collection in three different places (some in mom's closet at home) and put them all together and tried to sort them. We had five of one design, ten of another and so on. So if you like what you see in the photo, yours will be similar, if not exact. But I promise...definitely desirable and you will be happy. If you want to buy one or more of these for a specific product, this isn't the collection for you. When we ran out of one product, we added two more to the next assortment and frankly, you'll get much of what you want with great surprises. You'll be pleased. In a nutshell:

 

Each collection will include:

Two colored folders with one-of-a-kind sticker art on the front. These were designed by our artists for trade shows about ten or so years ago, and they are the last of their kind and wonderfully designed. There may be a blemish or two, not too bad, and it just marks the journey these folders have traveled.

 

A Paragon Label Grand Opening collection that includes a sheet of our Neighborhood Dogs, Angus our much-missed mascot and a very rare laser-cut heart that is dated and celebrates our acquisition of the Laserweb. Each little package was individually numbered and given out at the grand opening of our former store - one day only. The package was never released to the public and I've been storing these in my desk for more than ten years.

 

A package of out-of-print stickers that were packaged for a special customer.

 

A package of Christmas stickers with four different designs

 

You will get instruction booklets, sticker kits, sticker cards, trading cards or surprises that will make you happy. We just had a few of each so it will be a surprise because they are all out-of-print and terrific.

 

Everyone will get between nine and twelve mods each of our vintage foil-stamped Watering cans, Ribbons and Opalescent Bubbles and frankly, you can never tell what else you are going to get in this collection (oops! Just discovered our 20th anniversary stickers - there you go) because as the day wore on, I got more generous so have a ball with all these crazy-wonderful stickers and terrific sticker-related products.

 TWO VINTAGE CUSTOM DESIGNED STICKER ART ALBUMS

 


These are absolutely one-of-a-kind personalized albums created by Andrea and her art department about ten years ago. They were discovered in the back of one of our art closets and are in pristine (except for a few tiny nicks on the covers, a sign of antiquity!) condition and both very personal statements about our company and things we hold dear and near.

 

The smaller 5" x 7" album is an incredible example of very sophisticated sticker art focusing on dogs. You could probably use this for your own pets but there's something very special about the photographs of Beau, Andrea's dog, and a few other of our company canines (Angus and Whitney are in there) and you might want to keep them in it and keep the album just like it is. There are a few handwritten notes in the front of the album and twenty-seven double sided pages, some graduated, some blank but all with terrific sticker art details. A very special album.

 

The larger 8" x "8 album is a step-by-step wedding album we used at trade shows and used in special scrapbooking classes to show people exactly how a completed (and incredibly elegant!) bridal album could look.

 

If you gave this to a bride-to-be, I promise, it would be the hit of the wedding. It must have taken the art department 20 hours to create the 20 different pages (with eight blank ones in the back) in this very detailed and precision-designed album. There are no photos, just panels to put them on. If you have a store or are a serious collector, this is a gem. Unfortunately, it can't be replicated because al- most of these stickers are in 'retirement' so this is the only one that we know of, in existence.

ORIGINAL RARE 'OFFICIAL STICKER ALBUM' FILLED WITH INCREDIBLE STICKER ART DESIGNS


This collection of incredibly whimsical and wonderful sticker art projects is more than twenty years old. There are forty-three different examples of how to use our stickers. From bags and cards to bookmarks and greeting cards, these will never be seen again as these stickers no longer exist. Each sticker art card has been taped to each page and unless you are incredibly careful, I wouldn't suggest trying to separate them but would just leave them as they are. These are real gems. Simple ideas, precisely designed and awesome in their sophistication. These are museum-quality sticker art samples.

 STICKER ART TRADE SHOW SAMPLE BOOK - 1998

 

There are more than seventy different sticker art designs in this album. It looks like it was used to show our retail customers how to use our stickers to celebrate birthdays, weddings, babies, sports, graduations, moving and just about anything you can think of...there's an example of how to celebrate it.

 

Some of the cards have writing on them, most don't. There are a lot of 'popped' designs and really cool ideas using threads, ribbons and a lot of our stickers. This album is filled with a rich variety of ideas and again, they have been pasted on to the pages, so I wouldn't suggest trying to remove them unless you've got magic fingers! This is a beautiful example of how incredible versatile and what a huge variety of stickers this company has designed over the last thirty plus years.

AN UPDATE FROM JASON

 

As most of you know, we've leased out half our office space to Torn Ranch (gourmet gift baskets) and in the process moved our store and relocated our tour. We didn't know how this was going to turn out. What a surprise - it's turning out great!

 

Our brand-new tour is getting rave reviews. Visitors seem to be really appreciative that each tour only has fifteen guests - making it much more intimate and family-like. And because the groups are smaller, there is a sense of being up close and personal at all the different stations in our factory. Visitors seem to really like the demonstrations, learning little-known facts and getting to actually touch some of the equipment and of course, they really like getting lots and lots of free stickers and other surprises.

The tour starts in the video room with a really cool four minute film and ends up in the same place for sticker art. Strangers become friends, kids have a ball and frankly, grown-ups really are getting a kick out of learning how much technology and precision it takes to make a little sticker.

 

To make reservations call 1.800.429.4549. Admission $7.00 - twelve years and up; under 12 - $5.00 and under three is free.

         

Sincerely, 







 


Jason Grossman
