New Office pictures

Today we took some new pictures of our office and warehouse because it changed quite a bit and lots of new products have arrived since the last photos were taken. I love looking at pictures with lots of cute products in them. I also want to show where we work and how our place looks like. This way we can make our business a bit more personal for our customers and you know who is behind this cute online shop. Here are some pictures of our warehouse:

Surprise Chinese New Year Red Pockets

We decided to give away some cute Chinese New Year Red Pockets again this year. We did that last year already and we got some good feedback from customers who were really happy about the extra gift. Therefore, we bought some cute bunny red pockets (2011 is the year of the rabbit) + some Hello Kitty red pockets. Inside each red pocket, we will hide another extra gift for you. There are exactly 132 red pockets available, so the next 132 shop orders will get one.

cute Christmas header for our shop

We designed three really cute Christmas header for our kawaii shop. One design is with little black cats and a Christmas tree, another one is with kawaii animals in Christmas stockings and the third one is with some children playing with snow. Those 3 headers rotate randomly in our shop. So you may see a new shop header every time you look at a new page in our shop. I hope you like them as much as we do.

New handmade stamps

We just finished a couple of new stamp designs and added them to the shop. I think they turned out really really cute! Don’t you think so too? We make them all ourselves including design and the actual stamp. It usually takes about 1-2 hours to make one because we have to dribble several times ink into the stamp to make sure the stamp will last for a long time. Did you know, once you used up the ink, you can just buy some simple stamp ink from your local shop and drip it directly onto the design. Let it sink in for 1-2 hours and you can start using your stamp again. 🙂

Our blog colours changed

We changed our blog template a little bit. Instead of using the colours black and green for the boxes, we replaced them with our shop colours pink and purple. I think this new outlook is much better for our blog and it is very easy to see now that our shop and blog belong together. I hope you guys like the new colours as well.

Translate our shop into your preferred language

We just added a function to translate our shop into different languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian and more. Our programmer used the Google translation tool and changed it so it fits to our shop design and our settings. I know that an automatic translation is not perfect but I believe it is better than no translation and having no clue what is written on the site. We do have customers who would like to buy from us but don’t speak English or German (our current language options). We hope this automatic translation will help those people.

Very nice letter from a customer

Today we received a very nice, funny & cute letter from one of our customers in our mailbox (our “real” mailbox, not our email-inbox). She sent us a handwritten letter to tell us how much she loves our shop and to thanks us for our hard word. How cute is that? I was smiling the whole time while reading this letter. This is just awesome! I would have never expected such letter from a customer. Thank you very much! We love you guys!!!

Worldwide Shipping

I get continuously emails from customers asking if we ship to this country or that country. We had a worldwide shipping logo placed on every page of our online shop and also explain in our shipping details that we do ship worldwide. However, people still seemed to be unsure if we ship to their country. We changed the Worldwide Shipping logo to a much bigger one now which is very easy to see on every page of our shop. I hope this will help our customers to see quickly, that we do ship worldwide and even offer free shipping for orders above 60 Euro / US$78 / £54. If anyone has any further recommendations for us, please let us know by email.
