Happy New Year! It has been quite a ride, and finding time to post this year has been hard. We are taking steps to improve our response time on our custom design and emails. (Long-time customers may have noticed that it may take up to 48 hours for us reply to an email, and 3-5 business days to finsish a preview).
While this is still faster than any of our competitors that I’m aware of, I really want to keep our customer’s happy and respond quickly to all of our projects. Emily is taking the role of lead designer now, as she’s shown over the last 9 months that she is a better designer than I am, and really enjoys working on custom projects! I will still be around to assist with designs, and always available to help answer questions. This will also free me up to work on new design ideas and projects with Peggy and Karen so I hope 2017 we will WOW you with lots of fun ideas.
This post is about a Custom Bulldog Needlepoint Pillow that we stitched for a Christmas gift. It was ordered late, so we provided a gift card to the customer (see below) to give on Christmas, and we just shipped it last week.
What I love about this design, is the more modern feeling it has, the zoomed in closeup on the face. Our customer designed this herself on our website, www.NeedlePaint.com. You can upload a photo of your dog and see how it would it would look like in needlepoint for Free!
The cool thing to notice in the image below, is that while I think our digital previews on the website look great, the real needlepoint pillow looks much better!
If you don’t have a great photo of your bulldog, please email us, we’d love to help and can assist editing your own photo upon request.
***Last thing I’d love to post about are some more reviews we recieved over the holidays. You can see we now have over 100 5 star reviews on our Etsy Shop.
And below are some that were emailed to us over the holiday season.
