Make it Fresh for Spring with Staples : Window Dressing

Staples Window dressing is something I know a lot about. Right out of college I was a window dresser.

My love for making pretty windows is near and dear to me. At Urban Cottage, a mother & daughter partnership, dressing-up the store is something they love to do together. Although they are busy with their interior design clients and retail customers, they always take some time every season to freshen their look. So, when they started looking for branding materials, they looked no further than Staples Copy & Print.

“It’s so seamless,” says Gail. “Making a big impact takes minimal effort when you use the right resource.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Remember, decorating your windows for spring is smart business. It’s easy to make your customers feel like you care by ringing in the season with a banner and customized promotional cards. All your collateral is easy to order from Staples Copy & Print. Even importing your logo is super easy. Check out what Urban Cottage Atlanta did for their spring promotion:

Make it Fresh for Spring with Staples :: A smart way to Celebrate your Graduate

Staples Graduation season is upon us; can you believe it? What better way to celebrate your “smarty pants” than with a splashy party? I love the chalkboard themed announcements, invitations, and banners offered at Staples Inc, Copy & Print department. Everything is so easy to order online. The customization options make everything so personal and special. I could not believe how easy it was to order and customize my announcement online. The next day I just headed to my nearest Staples Inc. location and picked up my order. Yep! The next day! The staff was super nice, helpful, and cheerful. I was really impressed!

Staples As you know, I am a HUGE fan of anything chalkboard-y!! Check out these super trendy announcements I chose for my daughter’s party from the Staples Copy & Print department! I chose these pretty craft paper boxes for guests’ take away gifts, and I filled the boxes with Alex’s favorite…butter mints. We tied the boxes with classic black grosgrain ribbon and these stunning thank you tags from Staples Inc. I used craft paper wrap as a table runner. Just perfect!

Staples * Party Tip: I kept the menu casual and light with nibbles, popcorn, hot fudge sundaes, and retro sodas. We scattered some graduation themed sparkly confetti all over the table. Staples. has some really fun party decor! You guys all know that I never endorse products I don’t believe in 100%, and Staples has become my go to party store. Make it yours! *see more party ideas and tips here and here.

Make it Fresh for Spring with Staples :: Celebrate the Holidays

Mother's Day Staples When you have a small business like mother daughter business partners Gail and Jessica of Urban Cottage Atlanta, your customers are like friends. You want to make everyone feel welcomed and appreciated, and giving gifts and throwing parties is all part of the plan. When looking for customized special occasion signage and beautiful branded collateral that celebrate the holidays, Urban Cottage looks no further than the online shop of  Staples Copy & Print.

For Memorial Day Urban Cottage Atlanta decided to treat their customers to a BBQ. Because Urban Cottage is located in the urban Atlanta neighborhood of Virginia Highlands, a BBQ with burgers and sodas for Memorial Day seemed perfect. They ordered a banner and brought the grill right outside their front door. It’s no surprise that the neighborhood loved it. Add a little bluegrass band, and they had a party!

Gail says, “Celebrating with customers is not only good business, but it’s fun.” Smart small business owners can use banners and offer customized discount cards. It’s easy to make your customers feel special with some affordable giveaways like these can covers from Staples Copy & Print.

“Since Urban Cottage is a mother & daughter business, Mother’s Day is something we love to celebrate every year,” explains Jessica. “This year we ordered this custom banner and some beautiful customized journals to gift our customers from Staples Copy & Print.

Mother's Day Staples The selection at Staples Copy & Print is great, and the graphics are beautiful. Any Mom would love to have one of these pretty and useful journals. Gail says, “Putting together in-store promotions has become a pleasure using the Staples Copy & Print department.”

Thanks to Gail and Jessica! It was fun hanging out in your beautiful store, and I treated myself to a few goodies while I was there. What can I say? I was feeling festive.

Make it Fresh for Spring from Staples :: “In the Pink” A Spa themed Bridal Shower

Staples Why not throw an “In the Pink” spa themed bridal shower? Using one color can add a lot of impact!

*Party Tip : Color…Think of using shades of one color at your next party; the power of pink at this shower makes it girly and delicious. 

Try adding a few spa elements, too.  It will surely make the bride feel pampered and loved. The selection of pink invitations on Staples Copy & Print. website was incredible, so it was no wonder I had trouble choosing the perfect one for our friend Mary’s bridal shower. Did you know that Staples Inc. has everything you need for your next party? I even found these pink tissue balls on their site! Tied with Staples blush satin ribbon it made a beautiful girly touch to my decor.

Staples I loved the hot pink chevron wrapping paper. I used it to cover the table which is one of my favorite *Party Tips:  Use wrapping paper as a runner. It’s easy, pretty and when the party is over, you can roll it up and reuse it to wrap gifts.

The custom banner over the table was the perfect frame to the festive pink table setting. I made a small bridal bouquet out of grocery store pink roses and tied the perfect bow with the blush pink ribbon from Staples.

Staples Check out this gorgeous blush invitation! Staples has an extraordinary selection of beautiful, tasteful designs; I was so impressed. I ordered this delicate satin ribbon to tie the guests goodie bags with. It was the perfect shade of rose because it matched our champagne and raspberry cupcakes.

Staples

Staples These pretty little wish tags that say Mr. and Mrs. were at the party for guests to quiz the bride about her gift wish list. With the wedding just around the corner, it was the perfect way to pamper the bride with everything I found at Staples Inc.
