I love the fresh start of a new year! It’s the perfect time to set goals, examine what worked and what didn’t and celebrate achievements.

2016 was a great year for Inclosed! We set goals like nobody’s business and achieved every one of them! To name a few, we created a custom wedding collection, designed an entire wholesale line, revamped our website, and exhibited at our first ever tradeshow, The National Stationery Show.

As we kick off 2017, I want to share one very special accomplishment with you…

A few months ago, I received an email from Sarah Schwartz, editor-in-chief- at Stationery Trends Magazine. She asked me a question I had only heard in my dreams. She wanted to know if she could include Inclosed as one of her Top 10 Designers to watch in 2017!

I can’t even describe to you the joy that I felt. I was speechless. I did my happy dance for a few minutes, and I gratefully accepted her request.

Being a Top 10 Designer has always been a dream for Inclosed. I remember reading the highly coveted “Trends Issue” in years past and imagining what it would feel like to receive the honor of Top 10 Designer.

I also knew it took A LOT of work, sacrifice and endurance to be a contender. So we worked hard, worked late hours and sacrificed family time to achieve our goals. And it definitely paid off.

I cannot accept this honor without thanking my husband and family for their unconditional love, support and help in making this dream of mine come true. I couldn’t have gotten here without them. I’d also like to thank Katie Hunt of Tradeshow Bootcamp for encouraging all of us paper lovers to keep going and to never give up!

So what’s next? Well, the work doesn’t stop here. Oh no. This is only the beginning.

For 2017, we’re working to add new new stationery  products to our wholesale line, create new and fabulous wedding invitations and continue to grow our business and relationships with retailers.

From the bottom of my (very happy) heart, THANK YOU to all of our customers and retailers for making 2016 such a memorable year. You’ve given us the momentum to bring you new and exciting products in 2017 and we can’t wait to see what this year has in store.

 

Cheers to a new year!

Love,

Lesley

Today we’re featuring an amazing event coordinator based in New York City, Florie Huppert of Florie Huppert Design. Not only is Florie extremely talented and creative, but she’s also a working mama and total girl boss! We have lots in common with Florie and we are so thrilled to be part of her design family.

Florie Huppert is a boutique event company that focuses on the complete planning and design of social, corporate, and small non-profit events. Their guiding philosophy is that nothing is impossible! Each client is one-of-a-kind, and that each should be distinctive, beautiful, and fun! Florie believes “each component of your event, from the invitations to the centerpieces and from the party favors to the thank you notes should have your personal touch and complement each other beautifully.” We couldn’t agree more Florie!

 

FlorieHuppert2

 

Florie Huppert Design is so special because everything they do is completely custom for each client and work to make sure that every event is the vision and personality of the client. Their parties and events do not look or feel the same and their style is to make “everything we do special and client focused.”
