The word 'BEST' is a little over used in our house sometimes. Oh mum... the BEST thing happened at school today. It was the BEST. Oh she's my BFF (BEST friend forever) now. We are going on an excursion to (insert awesome excursion here) and it's going to be the BEST. Oh it's chicken kiev for dinner? Mum you are the BEST.
"Oh Emma, you are the BEST". This is seems like the ultimate compliment (not knocking it back, don't worry, I'll take any compliment with grace and poise, or a little-bit-unco sort of happy dance that no one can see). I doubt I am the BEST. Surely they have a family/partner/pet that is better than me. However, I love that at that moment in someones life, where for one fleeting second, I was the BEST. The little old stationery package I posted to them a day or two before has made their day and put a smile on their face.
It's a massive call to state something is the BEST. It's objective. It means there certainly is no better at that time. It's the pinnacle of compliments.
Let's bring this back to stationery. Sort of.
Yesterday I posted about the absolute worst bit of my job.
Today, I thought I'd write about the best bit. It's a tough choice and there's more than a few candidates for the position of BEST.
But, the ultimate BEST part of my job is.....Drumroll....when a previous client asks for the next lot of invitations.
The wedding is long gone. And possibly even the first anniversary, and then an email comes through saying they need invitations for a baby shower, or a christening, or a first birthday. Or a second, or a third.
Knowing they loved the product and service so much, that their first thought is to email and ask again for my help to design stationery for their next stage of life.
Now that's the ultimate compliment.
There's a range of ready made invitations for the next stage in you life in the store. Click on the images for more information.
