Live with Lisa Week 14: Reading Customer Reviews-Plymouth Cards

Hey there, I'm back. I'm Lisa at Plymouth Cards and we're having technical difficulties. Hopefully, that resolved it. Sorry, I'm just adjusting the camera again. I hope that you're about to hear me and see me. It'd be great if you could say hi or let me know where you are, what time of day it is? where you are? I'm getting ready for lunch here. Just you know, post your comments, and if I don't see your comment, it means I've been doing this for a few weeks now. It's actually week 14, who am I kidding, I'm learning how to read your comments when you do post them while I'm doing a live. So, we're getting there.

So, to start over, I wanted to see which one you liked better. So, if you're not watching this live, or even if you are watching this now or later, pop a comment in and let me know which one you like best. Moreover, this is how we wrap our ornaments. So, I'm wondering, do you like the Gangnam with the snowman and the red twine? Or do you like the solid with the snowman in the red, white, and green twine and kind of torn. I think they're both adorable, but I don't know which one you think is better. So, it would be really great if you would let me know which one you like, so that when we're packing orders, and we put the one that is more. I love these because you won't have to wrap one of these, we will send it out to up. So, you can get them and put them away, you can write the person's name because we don't write on them. I shouldn't say that the only time we right on them is if people order multiple names for custom on them. So, we don't have to open up every single bag. So, we will write the names. So, you know john, Joey, and Susan as common names. We'll write all the names on there for you because We don't want you to and we you don't have to open everything. The great thing about the packaging, is not having a big gift bag or anything, this will slide right into one of our cards or any other card that you have. That's 5" x 7", and it's perfect. So, you won't have to wrap it.

So, okay.  Oh, my goodness, the Plymouth Cards Booth. I don't know if you watched last week or if you know about it, it's been amazing. So, The Booth is going to be for people that have photos, artwork, quilting, cross stitching, whatever your craft is, or your profession. What we're going to do is we're going to have a separate section on our website called The Booth. And each person's going to have their own tab and sell their photos on our site, we'll do all the packing the shipping, the credit card fees, all that and then you get you. Okay, sorry, that was a phone call. However, you will get 40% we'll keep 60%. I’m excited because you won't have to spend your time printing the pictures pack and put them in the cards and all that and it's really great. It'll showcase everybody. So, we've had a really great response and we're closing The Booth applications tomorrow, Thursday evening. So, if you're interested in being part of the process. You can send us an email, and or comment here, send me a direct message, and I will get you the agreement. It's simple because we will not steal your photos because they're your photos forever. We don't take ownership of your photos in that because you're getting 40, we're getting 60 to cover all our administrative and packing and supplies, etc. So, I'd love to have you if that's something you're interested in, if you've wondered how to sell your photos, and what you should do because, this is a real low cost entry way to do it because you don't have to pay listing fees or file the cards in advance to photograph them and, you know, manage inventory, which I know can be a struggle at times.

So, you think this is a really great opportunity for you to get your stuff out there and then you will complete the promo. We will post everything on our social medias, each shops, and each Booths. After we post everything, you will receive your own private direct link, and you will be able to send it off to whomever you want promoted however you'd like which I think is great. The only restriction we will not allow you to do is promote negative photographs. However, I think the the reception has been really good.

Great, that is the information about The Booth and I'm excited to provide more information in the future. Oh, we have some reviews, and I want to go over them because I think they're great in the sense that they will allow me to help answer more questions. So, the first one I have here is, the color is lovely, but so far it hasn't been the right color for any of my photos, and I'm sure there may be some good matches in the future. Well, the great thing about that is on our homepage, if you scroll to the bottom of our homepage, we have a color preview tool, the tool allows you to upload your picture, and you will be able to see all the different colors it's in. The color preview will allow you to see and help you choose a color based on your knowledge. For example, you might say this would definitely be in the orange family. No, it's much better if it's in red. So, it surprises you when you put the picture in a color, and you think it's going to be this way, but it's not. So, if you have questions about card colors, let me know, and I will demonstrate it for you.


So, you can see how it works and it's pretty amazing. So, I'm going to try it and you might get seasick. So, I apologize in advance for that. As you can see, I have my rubber fingertips on. Well, I was going to demonstrate so you could see how the picture goes into the card, because we receive questions about that a lot. So, I'm going to flip the camera. I'm going to turn and flip the camera again. Oh, boy, I'm glad you guys are here. I really appreciate you watching and being part of it. So, what you do is you take the photo and slide it in just a little bit like that, then you will use your rubber finger tips. If you don't have any, we sell them for $1 on our website. Another, great thing is latex gloves. Those rubber gloves people wear when they wash their dishes, anything that you can grip the photos and helps make sliding it easier. But the other thing is that it doesn't put fingerprints on your pictures and see how you just slide it right into the other side. That's it, the picture is in the card. There's no glue, no tapes, and no adhesives. Just like that, it stays in and fits into a picture frame perfectly well. So, there it is in peach. This is a family photo from when Luke graduated from high school. I wasn't sure if that is the bridge in Duxbury, Powder Point Bridge. So, now I'm going to show this picture to you in melon and see how it changes by highlighting the photo differently.

Hopefully, you're able to see everything at a decent angle for you. You can see the photo slide out as well. I love that the photo doesn't get damaged, which is great. So, if you change the decor in your room or your home, you can change out the card. I love the cards, they fit into 5" x 7" frame, which is awesome. You know, they're blank inside and you can send messages and the person who will receive it can put it into a frame, which is great. So, hopefully that demonstration worked out. So, that is a quick demonstration on how you put the photos into the cards and to show you how it differs by accentuating different parts of the photo based on the color.

If you want me to demonstrate more colors or you have questions, let me know. I'm so happy to help. So, The Booth grand opening is September 1st and I don't know if I said it already. But if you want to be part of it and have your own Booth, please get to us right away because that is on Thursday. It's closing and we don't know how long it's going to be closed for. I mean it will be closed to new boosters, or lack of a better word. The Mayflower club is another option. The Mayflower club is where you pay $39.99 and you get 20% off your entire purchase, and every purchase for the entire year. So, that's a really great opportunity for those of you who spent more than $200 a year at our website. One more question and then I'll let you all go. A customer wrote, I like the cards and will order more in the future. However, I wish shipping weren’t so costly. So, I want to mention that our shipping is $5 flat rate, no matter how much you order, I think sometimes, not everyone realizes it's on as much as you want. So, we encourage you to buy more than less, if you think you're going to need it for more orders in a month or two. You should buy more than you'll save on that, and the shipping on the average order will costs us $7.15 to flat ship the average order. I need all of you to know that your worldly charging $5 flat rate. You can buy one thing or purchase 100 things; it will still cost $5. So, I hope that helps clear that up for you. I'd love to have your comments and feedback and I will be here next week, same time, and same place. I'd love to hear from you, and I hope you have a great rest of your week and upcoming weekend. I will talk to you soon. Thanks for watching, Bye.
