You might feel some changes coming to Val Marie Paper over the next few weeks as you place orders!
In September we moved all our shipping to a fulfillment company. After shipping 6,000 Yearly Prayer Journals (on top of regular orders from the shop) from Ashley’s living room last year, we knew we needed a solution before this most recent batch of yearlys. In all honesty, we could have looked for solutions like office space locally, but I was excited about the option of a fulfillment company knowing it would mean we could save ourselves some growing pains if business continued to grow. In the past two years, we saw our business almost double. And to be honest, that trajectory made me feel like we needed to get all our ducks in a row early.
Having a fulfillment company take over during our busy season this year was a godsend. We didn’t need to figure out where to house 14 pallets of journals with Ashley caring for a newborn.
But…we’re now taking fulfillment back.
