When Carla and I started Ink Drops we had grand plans based on what we wanted to do rather than what our lovely customer might want from us. So we excited talked in our first months about offering a giant box of stationery goodies every quarter called the ‘La-di-dah’ selection. We agonised over whether we should include pens and pencils in our selections. We got carried away by the idea of tying up bundles of old letters with ribbon.
Time has passed quickly since we sat around a kitchen table to consider what should go in our first selection and then to pack it in boxes that were much too big. We still believe in the wonder of stationery, the delight of surprises through your letterbox and lunch in the park.
What our customers like…
What we have noticed is that our customers love to buy our stationery as gifts. They like to delight their stationery loving friends and family with 3-month subscriptions to our service. We’ve also had lovely comments from customers that they would buy for all their friends if their purse strings would stretch that far.
With this in mind, we’ve created some limited edition 3 month subscriptions on different themes. These allow us to vary the price point a bit (access to stationery for all!). Better still it means we are providing even more opportunities for surprises to drop through your letterbox.
Subscribe to London Love
I love London had been one of our most popular selections. You lot clearly dig black taxis, red buses and Big Ben so we’ve created a mini subscription. Running for 3 months the first mailing of this limited-edition selection will be on 21 June. Subscribers will receive 3 packets of London themed goodies over 3 months. You can pay £30 upfront and wait for the goodies to arrive, or make a payment of £10 for each of the 3 months.
The limited-edition 3 month London Love is currently on sale until 14 June or when it sells out. Our last mini subscriptions sold out in 48 hours so don’t delay!
