Year at a Glance – March 2011

We’re doing something we’ve never done before!

I can’t say it’s something I’m happy about, but in response to the market…

We’ve discontinued a line.

Our Australia Scrapbook Pack is now, no longer 🙁

2011 Year at a Glance ~ March

Having introduced the Scrapbook Pack in 2006 (by public demand), we’ve had 5 happy years of supplying those with a bent for cutting, cropping and pasting to really make the most of their photo albums and memories.

Even though I say it myself, it was the best thing since sliced bread if you wanted bordered boxes for framing or accenting photos and mementos, or to write up a little piece of journalling, or create a stand out heading ~ Particularly if you were after classic Australian illustrations of flora and fauna and (as per our creed) Australia Made 🙂

But as they say, all good things have to come to an end.

Or do they?

Maybe not quite ~

For those who like the 12″ format,

we’re still doing the 12″ square Australia Map.

Map of Australia

Like all of our maps they’re printed with soya inks on eco-label certified & FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) paper, which in this case is a cream colour with a 140 gsm thickness. (RRP $4.95)

But I digress!

The purpose of this post is to illustrate a *highlight* (or maybe in this case a lowlight) from the previous four weeks.

As you’ll have seen from the opening illustration, this is entered in one of the boxes on a Map Journal so at year’s end… we can see our year at a glance.

  1. Very nice product, but I get what you mean about the market. If we don’t listen to the market, we die.

    Perhaps the idea could be repackaged, after all it was successful because it filled a need.

    I don’t believe the need has evaporated, just found it’s need met, probably on the internet.

    Such a nice blog you have

    • Thanks for dropping by with your compliment re the blog Catherine ~ and more importantly your observations –

      You’re right I think that it filled a need, but the format was limited to only those who were scrapbook orientated –
      I’m currently in the throws of designing a new line that will offer the unique part of the Scrapbook Pack (the jotting/journalling boxes) but am presenting it in a more universally appealing format.

      Watch this space… 😉
