Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
Sending flowers for any occasion is now affordable, easier and more beautiful than ever, thanks to new DC-based tech startup UrbanStems. With a curated selection of flowers, hand-crafted into bouquets wrapped in happy, chartreuse burlap, UrbanStems aims to make it easy to brighten someone’s day. The company has launched service in Washington, DC just in time for Valentine’s Day deliveries.
UrbanStems solves the problems that have long plagued the experience of ordering flowers online: expensive pricing with extra fees, vague delivery windows and flowers that rarely look like the product pictures.
Now, for just $35, you can have a fresh bouquet of flowers delivered within an hour or so of your order. Simply choose the arrangement you want to send and receive photo confirmation of what was delivered.
UrbanStems does this by utilizing emerging local delivery methods and a streamlined supply chain, aiming to make the experience as simple and affordable as possible. Additionally, UrbanStems boasts the easiest flower-ordering system online, with a single page, click-to-order form that can be completed in only a couple of minutes.
The UrbanStems website offers a curated selection of three hand-crafted bouquets at any given time. All are sourced from regions in South America known for extremely long bloom times and sustainable farm practices. UrbanStems works with Ecuadorian and Colombian farms that employ 90% women, all of whom are paid sustainable wages.
With on-demand deliveries, typically via bike messenger, UrbanStems can fulfill orders within an hour or two. Upon delivery, senders are immediately notified of their delivery by picture confirmation via text or email, allowing them to see their actual bouquet at the final destination.
Because of the efficiencies built into this system, UrbanStems are all always $35. There are no fees for delivery, early delivery, larger bouquets, rush delivery, or any other add-ons typical of the flower delivery business.
UrbanStems is a DC-grown tech startup aiming to make it easy to brighten someone’s day with flowers. By utilizing new technologies and a curated selection of flowers, we allow you to send a hand-crafted bouquet to anyone in the District, delivered within an hour or so, for $35 all inclusive. We’ll even confirm your delivery with a photo of your happy recipient.
