Good Morning Snazzy Stampers
with yet another grey, wet day in prospect we have some cheering news.
The very long awaited online store will go live on Thursday 12 July, probably around 3pm.
The structure of the site is complete, tested and fully working and we will try really hard not to tinker with this anytime soon. You will be able to get to the online store directly, from links on our blogs, Twitter & Facebook and also from the 'Shop Online' button on the main website.
More details soon.
As you may be able to see from the rather blurred screen capture above we have kept the design really plain and simple - we will get a better shot of the outside of the store once the skies brighten up and it stops raining! We have had some rather intense discussions on the product categories along the way and, in the interests of keeping the navigation as simple as possible, have tried to keep the number of categories as low as posssible. Time will tell whether this proves to be the right approach.
At the point the site goes live it will boast only around 1500 item lines with around a further 4500 to be added over the next month or so. We will load these as fast as we can with a blend of new items arriving in the store and the catch up on core stock items being loaded each week.
We are planning lots of additional features such as videos and tutorials to help you make the most of your purchases, and these will link from the product categories. We have already filmed a couple of these with lots more in the pipeline and the plan is to add these gradually over the Summer and into the Autumn. We will also working on providing links to products in the online store from the workshop and the new gallery pages of the main website which we hope you will find helpful.
That's all for now, but lots to look forward to, so do keep dropping by to check on our progress.
Keep dry xx
PS A very happy Birthday to our very own Ms Independence, Lyndz, from two very proud parents. xx
