St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) July 11, 2006 –-
LovelyLabels.com, has found a unique niche in the personal stationery market for children and families. Six months ago, founder Kim Hummert noticed a need for customized, fun and colorful everyday stationery products such as return address labels, note cards and thank you cards for kids and adults alike. Today the company is shipping these creations around the world.
The idea for the company began when Kim Hummert started making book plates and personalized contact cards for fellow moms and their children more than she was making them for her own children. She realized there was an unfulfilled need in the marketplace for a company that offered parents the ability to personalize their family’s stationery for differing situations and occasions. Realizing that the Internet would be the best vehicle for distribution, the company built an online store and invested heavily in a proprietary component of the site called a Preview Tool. “Customers want to have an idea of what their personalized thank you note or mailing label will look like, so we added functionality to our site that allows customers to change their wording and modify their font selections before they buy. We have many satisfied, repeat customers; and we can tell that by the number who return to order from us again,” said Kim Hummert, CEO.
Most families do not own commercial laser printers or software necessary to professionally typeset and create these stationery products; nor do they have access to high resolution images. More importantly, they don’t have the time. As today’s busy family is being rushed to the next activity, LovelyLabels.com makes and ships their fun stationery right to their door so parents spend their valuable time using the stationery for its intended purpose.
Fun personalized stationery has another benefit. “In today’s age of email and weblogs (blogs), it’s important to teach our children the value of good penmanship and writing proficiency - skills that last a lifetime,” said Kim Hummert. “Children are visual. Fun, colorful images of a child’s favorite activity tend to engage that child so the door to learning can be opened. Quality time can then be spent learning how to craft a thank you note, address an envelope, or simply write a pen pal. It’s equally important to teach a child the social etiquette of when to write a note as it is how to write a note.”
Adults can benefit from the products LovelyLabels.com offers since many themes are not just for kids; they include golf, music, gardening and much more. The company makes it easy for parents to re-order with an online account by accessing what they ordered previously. Children enjoy choosing a theme for their everyday “brown paper lunch bag” with a colorful lunch bag label and parent’s enjoy sending their kids off with a note of encouragement for their day with a lunch box note. As a family friendly and fun site for kids to visit on the Internet, http://www.lovelylabels.com can be added to the family’s access list of safe websites.
The future looks exciting for this new company with additional products expected to be announced soon. Kim Hummert: “We’ll also be offering a forum for parents where they can share ideas with one another. Our Idea gallery will then be used to compile and present these ideas for others to benefit from and enjoy.”
LovelyLabels.com is the premier source for fun personalized stationery offering unique, customizable products for children and adults alike.
