BIG news!

here at marzipan inc. we have BIG, BIG, news. i mean SUPER BIG! this news has been something i've been thinking of for years.

i first spoke with collage greetings many years ago when i got a fantastic package of information from them in the mail. at the time i didn't even really know what a distributor did. after speaking with the owner i realized that, at that time, it wasn't right for me. the cost was too prohibitive for where my company was at. however, i had such a fantastic chat with the owner that i stashed that packet away in a safe place.

after launching my new fin+roe line last fall i felt the time was right to move my company in a direction where so much didn't fall on my shoulders alone. i dug through the drawer where i had stashed that packet and made a phone call. once again, i loved the owner and felt like i could trust her and her team with my company.

the last 9 months or so have been nose-to-the-grindstone-busy getting things in order to make the big move. we sent off 2 palettes worth of product samples and inventory to get them started. that job alone took us months to complete. it felt so good to hear that they arrived safe in their warehouse.

unfortunately this change meant saying good-bye to some of my current reps. parting ways was so tough. i'm hoping our paths will cross again in some way.

i am so excited for our new journey with collage greetings. i feel like i'm in super-great hands and that they're going to do their best to sell my products and take care of the business side of business so i can focus on the things i enjoy best, like designing.

this is the beginning of a new chapter for marzipan inc.....hopefully one with a super great ending.
