Summer Webinar Series for Paper Peeps

tradeshow bootcamp webinar You’ve heard me wax poetic about Tradeshow Bootcamp before (pssst, there are only a few seats left for October’s Paper Camp Worskhop in DC … do not miss out!!), but I’m soooo looking forward to the upcoming webinar series Katie has put together. Topics include:

+ Human Resources 101: Growing your Team (it’s more complicated than you think!)
+ Anatomy of a Catalog: Creating a Strong Sales Tool (learn now, save years off your life)
+ Legal 101: Protecting Yourself with Contracts (you can be sure I’ll be listening in on this one with a giant notepad!!)
+ From Pitch to Product: Publishing Stationery & Gifts with Chronicle Books (eeeek, inside info. Pinch me.)

Webinars are held Thursday evenings for four weeks, starting August first. One of the biggest perks of listening in is access to the TSBC Small Business private Facebook forum, where speakers and alumni chat and share info year round. This is an amazing opportunity to grow your business, learn from speakers who have been there, and make connections with stationery industry peers. Registration is now open!

TSBC Paper Camp Los Angeles 2013

TSBC Paper Camp LA 2013I’ve been back from Paper Camp for about a week now and am still trying to wrap my head around all the amazingness that happened there. We covered a lot of topics: wholesale, wedding albums, etiquette and ethics, trade show logistics … the information shared was phenomenal. If only TSBC existed 10 years ago when I launched Delphine! It would have saved me so many headaches (and quite a bit of money spent on mistakes).

Lucky for all of you, Katie just announced a few minutes ago that she is releasing five more seats in the sold out Tradeshow Bootcamp webinar series that starts later this month. If you’re interested hop on it, these seats are sure to fill up by the end of the day!

Tradeshow Bootcamp Fall 2011

Delphine to speak at Tradeshow Bootcamp Fall 2011I’m thrilled to announce that I will be part of the Tradeshow Bootcamp Fall 2011 lineup. Along with  Susan Kropp (Chirps & Cheers) and Katie Hunt (Kelp Designs), I will  be talking about wedding invitation albums, wholesale v. retail custom stationery, and how to get a line of wedding invitations into market on October 6, 2011. If you’re new to the stationery world or are thinking about jumping in,  Tradeshow Bootcamp is an amazing way to learn about the industry from experts. I wish it had been around before I started Delphine!

Many thanks to organizer and stationer extraordinaire Katie Hunt of Kelp Designs for asking me to participate. If you have any burning questions about how to put together a wedding invitation collection album please feel free to email me directly and I’ll try to answer them all during the seminar.
