Year at a Glance – July’s highlight: Puzzle Postcard Maps in Production

We celebrate and enjoy

  • *sporting highlights*
  • *holiday highlights* but how often do you hear about
  •  *business highlights*?

Each month I notate a *Journey Jottings highlight*, which I summarize on a single sheet, so at year’s end I can view Journey Jottings’ year at a glance.

July’s *highlight*? The development of a new product line ~ our

Jigsaw Puzzle Postcard Map

Year at a Glance ~ July 2011

There’re 8 NEW Jigsaw Puzzle Postcard Map designs: One to cover the whole of Australia, plus 7 more detailed regions in postcard sized chunks.

Each jigsaw puzzle postcard map comes with a red printed envelope, and a backing sheet to illustrate how you

  • write on the back of the postcard
  • take the pieces apart and put them in the envelope
  • mail it to the recipient
  • who then has to put it back together to read your message.

So this month’s *business highlight* was

  • selecting the regions to be covered with this new map line
  • designing the artwork for the instructions on the backing sheet
  • preparing the artwork of maps & backing sheet for the press
  • selecting the red envelope and organizing printing of kangaroo & echidna image

and finally

  • bringing it all together so its all printed, collated and packaged ready for our retailers…

Its amazing how many little steps it takes to get to some finishing lines… but

Fun times 😀

  1. LOVE these! My most recent sighting of your products was in the Ingham Visitor Info Centre – sadly I have no photographic evidence, as I left the camera in the car. And it would have been too uncool with the 3 volunteers watching our every move …

    My highlights? I’ve been asked to guest post on a couple of blogs … now if only I could find the time to write the posts!!

  2. I love the puzzle idea, that is fantastic. The artwork is also very impressive…they are pieces which hold my attention and I keep looking for and finding new things within the images.

    What a huge July! Congratulations.
