A New Day for Darlybird
In the very near future (i.e. this week), I'll be moving all of my Darlybird inventory over to a fulfillment warehouse. What is this, you may ask? And why? A fulfillment warehouse is a business that specializes in holding other small business' inventory, and then fulfilling their orders and shipping them out. I'm really excited about this change because it will free up so much time and stress from my current situation. I'll be able to spend time doing the things I love to do with Darlybird and learn new skills---like web design, Illustrator, etc . . . .
I will be sad not to be able to handwrite a note in every box. I like feeling a connection to my customers and that's going to be the downside. But when push came to shove, it was either outsource or shut down. So we're going with the outsource route.
I'll leave you with some images of new darly---I've got some great projects up my sleeve that might be debuting in a month or two. Until then, enjoy the new spoils.
One more thing: I'll be putting a message on my front page that orders received after Tuesday will not be processed until the next Tuesday. So if you need something pronto, order by Tuesday. Adios!
