Today I’m sharing the bittersweet news that Akimbo will no longer be producing any off-the-shelf stationery. Yep, no more greeting cards, art prints or pre-made stationery.
Why? Akimbo is just me; one person trying to wear all the hats involved in running a small business. Custom wedding invitations have always been Akimbo’s focus but I couldn’t give it the attention it deserved while juggling wholesale accounts, production, markets, packaging and everything else that goes along with having retail products.
It may not be goodbye to Akimbo retail products for good. Perhaps there will be a time in future when I have staff or a collaborative opportunity makes it possible by handling all of the production and distribution.
But for now while this is still a solo operation, I am excited to be focussing on Akimbo’s specialty: wedding stationery.
This is great news for my lovely brides and grooms, who can expect bigger and better things as I throw myself completely into design for weddings! So you can expect lots more wedding goodness from me, including a bunch of new designs to launch this Spring.
