Hi y’all! I would absolutely love your input on the journals!!
You’ve heard me say a million times, this little product was designed for myself to keep my thoughts together. I had know idea how much others would love it as well! I was obviously not prepared for the kind of response we would get! We’ve already sold out of about 4 rounds of printing and are currently awaiting our next round right now! If you ordered blush, it should be arriving to me any day, but will be shipping out no later than February 10! (See my instagram for a photo of them! Just got the first copy this morning! @valwoerner)
As I prep for next year I would love your feedback on how I can make improvements and streamline things.
1. OPTIONS – I love offering options but sometimes they seem to confuse people more than they seem to help to offer choices. Two specifics?
UNDATED OR DATED?
We currently offer two options, a dated set and an undated set. The dated set has the month printed. The undated set has a line to write in your own month so you can start anytime of the year and not just January or July. We get quite a bit of questions about what it means to be undated or dated. I originally thought giving both options would help so people could choose what they prefer but I am second guessing this idea. If we go to one style, do you think it should be dated? Meaning you could purchase at any time of year, but might have to leave a few months blank, for example, if you buy the July – December journal in September. Or should it be undated so you can start whenever you like, but don’t have the month name or little tagline underneath?
Also, I love having color options but some have confused a color option for a different timeframe (i.e. ordering Bermuda now thinking it’s for the first six months even though it starts in July). Would you prefer to see one color for each year having both journals the same color? One color and a kraft option??
2. OTHER JOURNALS – I have received suggestions for other journal ideas and I am considering adding a few to our line. Examples of already suggested are pregnancy journals and a more masculine prayer journal option for men. How would you see these looking?
3. FORMAT CHANGES – Are there any changes you would make to the current format?
4. REASON FOR NOT PURCHASING – If you have seen the journals and have not purchased, what stopped you? Something with the Design? Format? Price? Options?
My goal is to shape this product to fit y’alls needs and what would be most effective for actually using them. I don’t want these to sit on shelves!!
Leave a comment or email me at val (@) valmariepaper.com with feedback with answers to any of the above questions. You don’t have to answer all of them if you don’t have a strong opinion, of course!
I will pick one winner from the feedback at random and give (5) 12-month sets for you and friends! Deadline is Sunday at midnight. I’ll pick a winner Monday morning!
