Not long ago, you received an email about our Die-Cut Cards. We knew we were making something special, but we continue to be blown away by their success with our retailers. We’re hearing that you simply can’t keep them in stock, and we just received a new shipment to be sure we can always provide you and your customers with what you need.

If you haven’t started carrying them, I can’t recommend enough that you give them a shot. One of our retailers told me that she purchased a whole box of them and offered them first to a cardmaking class. They never even made it on to the shelf because she SOLD OUT in that class! At a retail price point of $3.99, they truly are a no-brainer.

I have even better news! Not only are the die-cut cards available, but Hot Off The Press also has 12x12 templates so your customers can make the cards over and over again! You might say the die-cut cards are for the busy cardmaker and the templates are for those who want to use colored card stock or specialty papers for their card bases. Or, they are both simply for cardmakers! Below you’ll see each of our die cut card templates and a project image.

Finally, I wanted to announce that I’ll be running a series of regular 7 Day Deals. For 7 days, you’ll be able to buy an item or bundle at a blowout price that will allow you to increase your margin or sell them on promotion without losing your revenue. To kick things off, look for an email VERY SOON titled “7 Day Deal” where you’ll be able to pick up items to sell on Black Friday or other sale events at an unbelievable price.

As always, if there’s any way I can ever be of service to you, contact me at (800) 227-9595 ext. 1031 or sspoon@hotp.com
