Roll up, roll up, read all about it! Fold & Seal has hit
the Press 😊

I was thrilled to be mentioned in the March Issue of Irish Country Magazine, they did a lovely snapshot of some of the most popular products and yes I did a little dance when I opened the magazine and saw it. 

Separately Diana Bunici wrote a feature in the Inspire section of  Evoke.ie. All about how I set up Fold & Seal, the highs and lows of running your own business and my hopes the future.  So many of my suppliers inspire me so to be included in this particular section of Evoke.ie was really cool. https://evoke.ie/2019/02/20/inspire-women-in-business/laura-stearn-set-up-fold-and-seal-december-2018

Then I had my first ever Pop- Up Shop, YAY!! I really want to do more of these. The fantastic girls from The Pod Collection, Hazel and Emma organised it and it took place in the Union Café, Sandyford. This was a huge learning experience and so nice to meet customers face to face and of
course the other Irish Business’s involved too (Dear Trudy, Pickled Pom Pom, Rockabye, Ruby’s Boutique and Primp and Style) All so talented and selling amazing products.

March also saw the launch of two new Brands with Fold & Seal – Rama Publishing and Mean Mail. Both very different but equally amazing!!

Rama Publishing creates the most interesting and high quality stationery. I am now stocking their Daily Review Planner and also their Ratio notebook – designed especially for Law Students. The CEO Rachida is an inspiration and if you are looking for motivation follow her on Instagram! https://www.foldandseal.ie/product-category/brands/ramapublishing/

Mean Mail make cards that are honest and hilarious. Designed by Vicky Simmons the cards are inspired by the way best friends speak to each other 😉 Trust me these are the best cards I have ever seen! https://www.foldandseal.ie/product-category/brands/meanmail-brands/

On a not so good note, due to my bad handling of my Printing Press I damaged one of the screws that is used to tighten the letters into place d’oh! (Physics was never one of my strengths) However it’s currently been mended by the guys in Metallic Elephant and all pencil printing will resume ASAP!

That’s all folks!
