We’re so excited to introduce the new and improved MJ Paperie! We’ve spent several months updating our online boutique to transform into a full retail platform complete with online checkout and shopping functionality, easier tracking of products with wish lists and personal user accounts, and intuitive product groups and cross referencing of items for a seamless shopping experience.
Our new website isn’t the only change to our business – we’re evolving into a complete ‘Paper & Party’ studio! In addition to all of our great paper products, we’re offering complete party styling and event design services and party supplies. Whether you need a little help getting your creative juices flowing to decide on a theme for your next birthday party or want a complete 360 degree proposal, design, menu creation and event setup support, MJ Paperie provides a wide range of styling and party design services to take your event from start to finish.
You will also notice that our Calligraphy and Custom Wedding Design pages are no longer present on our new site. Don’t worry, they have not disappeared. Please use the link on our home page to inquire about a personalized proposal for your calligraphy and custom design needs. We’re in the process of spinning out our Wedding Invitation Design and Calligraphy business into a new sister company of MJ Paperie and will be revealing all of those details in the months to come. Stay tuned!
For now, take a tour of our new online shop! The biggest improvement to our paper boutique is the product purchase and personalization features. Here is a screen shot of one of our favorite new products from Emily Ley’s Baby collection, the ‘Heart Stripe‘ baby shower invite with matching photo birth announcement, fold over note card and return address sticker. The linking related products make it so much easier to coordinate all of the paper pieces for your events and announcements!
Here is a complete tour of our new features!
Shopping made simple! Our new navigation bars allow you to see product thumbnails related to each category below our ‘featured products’ banner in each parent category. If you know just what you’re looking for, skip the parent categories and navigate right to the desired product group in our drop down banners. We’ve tailored these menus to allow browsing by product groups or by the brands themselves within each section. Speaking of featured items – be sure to check out the new ‘Simplified Note Pad‘ collection from Emily Ley – making life easier, one list at a time! These are our favorites!
On that note – we’ve made shopping by Brand much easier! Use the drop down menus to shop by brand within the main section or utilize our new “Brands” bar appearing at the bottom of each page to click into all of the items that we carry from each manufacturer in one easy step. Our “Brands” bar is a mainstay on each page and is easy to find along with our social networking banner. Stay on top of our latest news and twitter updates and click on any of our brand logos to start browsing.
Our wish list function is a great new option for keeping track of all of the cute products you stumble onto while browsing our site. Haven’t decided which holiday card to purchase? Just hover over your favorites and click “add to my wishlist” to keep track of your choices in one place that’s easy to compare side by side. The wish list can also be found in our ‘Information’ drop down menu for returning customers. Our convenient “Add to Cart” and checkout process makes the whole shopping experience easier and more convenient for you!
One of the most important additions to our site – a search function! Click into the magnifying glass icon located in the upper right corner of our header logo to search by color, pattern, product number or numerous other product attributes to find exactly what you’re looking for. Each product page shows a list of tags below the product image to let you know what searchable groups the item can be found in. Check it out!
Last but not least, for our frequent shoppers, we’ve added personalized user accounts so that you can keep track of your order history, save your wish lists even when you log out of the site, and receive special offers and discounts for members only.
As always, we hope you are enjoying reading our blog. We’re continuing our weekly “Party Trends” feature and will be adding more party inspiration boards and fun holiday gift guides in the coming weeks!
In celebration of the launch of our new site, all holiday cards and holiday party invitation orders by Sunday evening will receive FREE coordinating Return Address Stickers as a special thank you from us! Please include your return address as you’d like it to appear on your coordinating stickers in the special instructions upon checkout and we will add them to your order.
In honor of our big launch, we’re taking 10% off all orders for our first ten days – use code LAUNCH10 at checkout until November 21st.
We hope you enjoy shopping with us!
