Live with Lisa Week 38: Greetings From the Past and How to Find them on Our Site!-Plymouth Cards


Join us live on Facebook every Wednesday:

Hey, Happy Wednesday. I am Lisa DiVasta and I know today things look a little differently. Because I am going to be doing the live on... I'm just trying to get everything set up here.

Oh, sorry. I'm doing it on Stream Yard today. So if you're here live watching, I won't be able to see your name unless you give Streamyard permission to... You just have to click OK for them to have permission for them to show me your name. So otherwise, if you don't feel comfortable doing that, that's fine. Just at the end of your name, just say who you are. Otherwise I won't know... If you write a comment, I won't be able to see who you are. But I have... I'm doing this today because I'm going to be able to show you my screen in a few minutes which I think is going to be really cool for you. Because I've had a lot of questions. So I wanted to be able to do that.

So it's Wednesday. I hope you're doing well. I'm glad you're here. Thank you so much for joining me and I hope you're doing well. I'm getting ready for the weekend. Good things going on. But I wanted to talk to you today and show you the Greetings from the Past. Hopefully you got an email a little while ago. I guess it's 11 am. The email went out at 11 am your timezone. So whatever time zone you live in, if you haven't received it yet, that's why you haven't got it yet. Because if it's not 11 am where you are yet, that's why. But anyway, so it has a special offer in it and I'm going to talk to you about that in this live as well. So sorry for being a little out of sorts.

Today I am in my office so you can see -- Oh, I should show you. Behind me is all the cards. Isn't that amazing? That's not even all the cards, that's only half of them. We keep them in color, they're colour-coded, which makes it easier. So when I'm making a new card or a new Greetings from the Past, I can then just go to the wall and pick one. So that's what that's all about. 

So I've had a lot of people ask about the Greetings from the Past and so I wanted to just show them again, some of the more popular designs. So we have -- I just want to show you the texture. Hopefully you can see them. I should have brought... I didn't bring the good lighting today. So hopefully you can see me good. So I'd love for you to say hi, tell me where you're watching from. That's always fun to know where everyone is. And if you're not watching it live, still say hi and I'll say hi back. We can chat after the fact. 

So Greetings from the Past are on a special this week, through Sunday. You can get 10% off your entire Greetings from the Past purchase. You may ask if you're watching this and you've never seen our Greetings from the Past cards, what they are? They are reproduced vintage postcards into a greeting card. So it's really cool. So I was starting to show you the Pelican one. I love this one. It says hold on, I make pretend I can read without my glasses. 'A funny old bird is the Pelican. His beak can hold more than his belly can. For food for a week he can hold in his beak but I don't see how the hell he can.' This is seriously one of our best selling cards. So that's why I wanted to show you that one first. People love it. So all our cards are blank inside for you to write your own special messages. And I just wanted to show you some other fun ones that we have, some new ones that have been introduced. 

So that's a thank you card. I love it with the stars. So I think that's really cool. And here's another thank you card. We have hundreds of different Greetings from the Past. This is a birthday card. So we have birthday cards, we have sympathy cards, we have get well cards, we have graduation cards, we have... Just wanted to show you all those, some of the different ones. Here's a graduation one. So every occasion we have. So that's yeah... You can get them there. 

So what I wanted to do is, I've had some customers call and then a few others emailed me. They were having trouble finding the Greetings of the Past on the website. But not only that, if they did find them they said, oh well, I only wanted a birthday card, and then I had to scroll through it all. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to screen share. So that's why we're on Streamyard today. But I think we're going to potentially use Streamyard every week from here on out. And I'm going to show you my screen so that you can see where the Greetings from the Past are. So let's hope this works. I tested it earlier today so please bear with me. It's not working. Oh boy. Let's see. Let's see what we got going on. Share screen. Okay. Let's see. I'm getting there. Alright. Ah, it worked. Okay. So there we go. Now you can see my screen. So how did I get here? Let's see, I'm going to show you.

So first I went to And from there I went over here to greeting cards, and then Greetings from the Past. You click on that and it shows you all our cards, it's done alphabetically. But say you only want Easter cards. Easter is coming up, you want Easter. So you just go over here, see this menu, it defaults to view all. So what you're going to want to do is click on this view all and then it shows you all the different events. Look at St. Patrick's Day, I just put a bunch of new St. Patrick's Day cards on there. Sometimes I'm putting the wood background behind it because when the card is white, it gets washed out as you can see with this one. So it's kind of hard to see what the card actually looks like. But that shows you St. Patrick's Day. If you want to see the Easter again, because I know I just jumped off that real quick, they're here. They're all in alphabetical order. And we do have some sampler packs. So if you're interested in that, you can't decide which one you want, or you need a few that's a good way to do it. You save a little bit of money when you buy a sampler pack. But these are some and we've added a lot of new Easter ones over the last few weeks.

So that's how you navigate. But if there's a category that we don't have, that you're like, oh, I wish we had... Oh, a customer actually asked us for pet cards. So I'm working on... Let me see if I can get back to me. Stop screen. Okay, there we go. I did it. Yay. So we had a pet request, so I'm working on that. But if there's another genre that you're interested in that you don't see, I'm happy to see if we can find it. So what's really cool is this upcoming weekend it's out in Mount Dora. We're in Florida in case you don't know that. And Mount Dora has this open air antique show, antique flea market kind of place and it's huge. It's on acres and acres and acres of land. There's tables and so we are going to go this weekend and look for more postcards. So this is a stack right here of postcards that I have that I still haven't even gotten on our website, they're really fun designs. I can just show you some of them. So what we do is Vinnie is such a good one. He comes with me and we go and we walk around this big outdoor festival. I don't know if anyone from Massachusetts is watching but we used to go out to the Broomfield Fair in Worcester Mass and now we go to Mount Dora. It's really interesting though here because in the summer, it's so hot that the fair... [inaudible 09:11] it's only in January, February and November because then it's cool. So that's that part. But the Greetings from the Past, so I wanted to give you the code. Oh my gosh, now I've lost the code. It's F, F as in Facebook, B as in... Or FB for Facebook, and then 10. And that will give you 10% of your entire purchase of Greetings from the Past cards. So I just wanted to give you that special code. So it's F as in Frank, B as in boy, 10 and it's the numbers not the words spelled out. And that will give you 10%; that is good through Sunday. And I will put a link in the comments when we're done with the direct link to all the Greetings from the Past and then also to the coupon. I'll put the coupon code there too. Oh, let me show you some more though. Where did I put them? Oh here they are, okay. 

Yeah, I just think it's cool to see the textures up close of the cards in the paper. These are the -- what do we call it -- St. Patrick's Day ones I just did. So this is in our white, see the texture. And then I love the decaf. This one is in decaf, which has those flecks in it. You can see that. I apologize about the lighting, I forgot to bring my good light from my office, it's usually where I stand in other areas of the house. And there's the Shamrock. Can you see that? It has like the linen texture. Yeah, so those are the Greetings from the Past. And like I said, we have... This is a brand new one. I love this one so much because it says 'Top of the morning to you.' And I just think that that just makes me smile. So those are a bunch of the St. Patrick's ones that we have. We have Easter ones and we also have some sampler ones. Like I said, we have a couple of Easter ones, there's Christmas ones, there are... What other holidays?  I just did an all occasion one, so if you go to all occasion, as I navigated -- showed you how to navigate on the website a little bit ago, go to all occasion, there's one for all occasions. And it has a birthday, a sympathy, a graduation. So I find sometimes you never have the card you need. So it's good to just get a little sample pack and then you have all the different holidays. So I think I'm going to make a jumbo pack. And that should be good.  

So the last thing I wanted to show you today was some people wanted to see how the hope ornament look, not the hope ornament, the hope pin looked when it was boxed, because a couple people wanted to get the gift wrapping box. So I just wanted to show that to you again real quick. We've improved it. So it's -- I don't know if you can see -- the shimmer white has this iridescent-ness to it. So we're going to include a butterfly on it with that. And then it's designed so that you don't have to -- you can check it out and it will be okay if you then retie it. So then you just pull the twine, and then the tag comes off like that. And then you can just do that. But I really loved what we did. So when you open the box you see it's on the cotton, it's just not sitting in there. We put it on a backer, and this is also on that -- Can you see that? I think you can see it. It's really cool. This paper is one of my favorite papers, it's our shimmer white. And so we put it on that, it just has this really nice look to it. And then on the back, we've put the message where it says 'Once you choose it, there are no limits. Always remember whatever happens there is always hope.' So that's on the back. And it's on that really cool shimmer white paper. So that's what that looks like - the boxes. And that's $5 extra for us to wrap it. And if you need us to include a card or a note, just let me know, I'd be happy to do that too. 

So that's everything... I'm sorry. Let's see, to get in touch with me. Many people want to know that. So the number is 877-830-3405. You can call that number. If I don't answer just leave a message, it means I'm on the other line. You can email and it's cards with an 's' just like the website. You can always private message me on Facebook, you can post a message on Facebook, any of the above. That's all great, I'm happy to respond. I respond usually within 24 hours. I feel like I'm not on my full game today. Sorry about that. But yeah, I think we've got it all covered. I'm just really looking forward to going to Mount Dora this weekend and see what we can find. I hope we get some really cool things. And I also have some other fun things coming up - new card lines coming up in the next month. So I just want to tease that out. I have two new lines coming and they're really awesome. I love them. I hope you like them as much as I do. 

But I appreciate you being here and watching and like I said just reach out. If you have any questions about the live, feel free to post it in the comments and I do check Facebook a few times a day so I will definitely message you back. Alright. Thank you so much for watching. I appreciate you. Have a good rest of your day. Bye.
