Check Out Digi's Year In Review!

I'm amazed at how quickly this year flew by! So much has happened here at ACOT both on the business and personal sides of everyone here. Some good. Some not so good, but we made it! Another year older and hopefully wiser!

Our Digital Creative Team spent some time reviewing 2008 in digital scrapbooking layout form. As usual, the projects are incredible! Here are some examples:

We are knocking down walls in the warehouse to make more room for more product in the New Year! We are continuing to think of ways to becom
e more efficient and more productive for our customers.

The new room will provide a great office area, more floor space for new product and our local customers will see even more items at close out and clearance products to purchase!

See those racks near the front? Soon they and many others will be stocked with fantastic values! The clearance area will help us make room for new product even faster!

If you do get to stop by, I'll probably be sitting somewhere here. Brandon still has some wiring and networking to do, but we're almost there! Moving our offices to this area will open up a lot of floor space in the warehouse and shipping.

We are so excited about this expansion and looking forward to seeing what the next year brings! In January 2009, we will be viewing and buying all of the newest goodies at CHA Winter. More space equals more room for new products and who doesn't love new, right?!?!

We'll keep you posted on the ins and outs of the expansion!

Do You Digi?

Digital layouts are one of the hottest trends in scrapbooking right now. And with more and more websites dedicated to digital or adding digital sections, I don’t think this is a trend that we’ll see fading anytime in the future. But there is a bit of mystery surrounding digital layouts. When you ask people about digital scrapping, many are like “What is digital?” or “I wouldn’t even know where to begin.” Hopefully, this will give a little background into the digital process, what’s needed to get started, and what digital can offer to your scrapbooking experience.

Read more about "The Digital Decision" in an article by Lyndsay Jorday-Hegwald HERE!

Already a seasoned digital scrapper? Be sure to check out our Digital and Hybrid Tutorials where designers like
Kristianne (MamaK321) can show you how to take every day doodles like this:

And turn them into fantastic digital layouts like this:

Orders Are Shipping!!!

pretty sure that's Michelle hiding back there! HAHA!

The Thanksgiving/Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale was a blast! Having everything on sale was a popular idea. Imagine that???

Our shipping department is hard at work making sure your orders are securely packaged and shipped as quickly as humanly possible! Believe it or not, yes...we still use humans. :) The robots weren't too spiffy at picking single sheets of cardstock and they kept knocking over the coffee pot. They had to go!

Some deliveries might be shipping a day or two later than what you're used to. We want you to know we haven't forgotten you! Hey...maybe you can spot your package somewhere in these piles:

<---- Is that your order? Is it that big one over there? Some of these orders were incredibly heavy! You guys are making the UPS® dudes work extra hard.
But just think of all of the money that was saved? Talk about savvy shoppers! If you did select UPS® ground or expedited delivery options, you will be able to
track your package right to your front door! Forget to order something during the sale? Don't worry. There's still time to receive it in time for Christmas! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Customer Support Department.

Santa Keeps On Delivering!

This is one view of what's currently being received in our warehouse!

Normally during the month of December, we're planning fun "end of the year" things like counting inventory. But I guess Santa has other ideas because shipments of new products keep arriving on a daily basis! Honestly! There is no end in sight.

Just take a look at a sampling of what Santa brought just today!

Becky and Michelle in Receivings will be busy for a while making sure all of the new products are online quickly! I don't know. I think they may need an elf or two to help dig them out of there! Any volunteers??? LOL! We might be able to offer compensation in the form of all you can handle "Oohs" and "Ahhhs" as well as bragging rights that you saw it first! Doesn't that sound like a great deal!?!?!?!

I guess that means we'll have to keep making room for the brand new stuff which most likely means fabulous things for our wonderful online and local customers! We'll be sure to keep you informed. :)

I probably should go back into the warehouse to make sure they're doing OK...and maybe provide some type of sustenance. HA!

Until next time...
