Have you heard of Paper Coterie yet? I had the pleasure of checking out some of the products & meeting some of the Paper Coterie gals at BlogHer and I was instantly impressed. Their passion for their product was immediately apparent! So, what is Paper Coterie? Here’s an explanation in their own words: “We’re a passionate circle of friends who share a common purpose – documenting the beauty of life well lived. We believe in the relevance and value of permanence. We announce new births, celebrate milestones we never thought would come, and go on record with what we hope for our children long after we are gone.” Sounds great, right? I think so!
But, the question is, how is the product quality? From what I’ve seen, it’s awesome! At BlogHer, we received two fabulous products, introducing us to Paper Coterie: a “documenting the beauty of life well lived” journal and an adorable little desktop calendar (only ours had inspirational quotes instead of pictures). Once home, I was able to go shopping and choose an item. It was SO hard to choose! I really, really wanted to do a book, but just didn’t have the time to do it right then. So, then, I almost got a Memory Keeper (and now, will totally be going back to get one…or two)! LOVE this idea!!! But, then I found it….an adorable growth chart!
I’ve been looking at various ones for awhile, but as soon as I saw this one, I knew I had to have it! The boys’ bathroom has a fun ocean theme and I thought it would go perfectly!
Ordering my product was really easy! No fancy (aka long) downloads, no super tricky directions. It was all really straightforward. I love that everything was customizable–you can change the pictures and words (even the font!)! I decided to make one for the boys. Thanks to our Sea World trip, I had an appropriate themed picture and changed the text to read, “watch us grow”. I’m always especially nervous about quality of photo products (and tend to be rather critical). But, I was SO pleased with this!
First off, I thought the turn-around was really great! And, I was SOoooo pleased with the quality! You can tell that they care about their products!
Here’s what ours looks like: Big Brother was REALLY excited about it!
