It's almost time to say goodbye to 2009! It has been a fun and exciting year here at Writer's Bloc, and we just wanted to say thank you for all your loyal support! We hope that you were able to find something to help organize your life or simply brighten up your day :) Here are some of the kind words that customers have shared this year:
"... the Writer's Bloc folks completed the orders with utmost efficiency--I received exactly what I had ordered, at a good price, with the items shipped within 24 hours of my order, well packed and with fast shipping. I couldn't have asked for more!... I highly recommend the Writer's Bloc." M.C., CA
"Fantastic across the board: from the website, selection, price, and shipping. Great blog, too. It's why I keep coming back to Writer's Bloc. Thanks!" K.C., CA
"Writer's Bloc went out of their way to accommodate a special request for a Clairefontaine watercolor pad that I have fallen in love with... I have recommended them on my blog and will continue to order from them in the future! Bravo Writer's Bloc!" M.J., WA
"WritersBloc is a fun website. It's like shopping in a boutique. I happened onto this site because they carry my favorite fountain pen inks (Noodlers), and I found a lot of other carefully selected, fun, high-quality, and reasonably priced items. I have also found the site to be very helpful..." G.C., CA
"Great seller. Great items." J.B., PA
We've added some great new items to our selection this year! We started with expanding our line of Quo Vadis planners to include the Habana, Soya and Equology covers in many shapes, sizes, and formats (all of which are now available for 2010!). Rhodia also added the Webnotebook and some great planners with the Rhodia Weekly Notebooks. Other new products from our favorite brands include the Basics and Mlle No collections from Clairefontaine, and new colors from Noodler's Ink like Bad Blue Heron, Periwinkle, Le Reine Mauve, and Polar Brown. Most of these items were flying off the shelves as fast as we could stock them, so we hope you are enjoying them!
Our family of fountain pens also grew this year. We were very excited to add Aurora and Platinum to our luxury fountain pen repretoire, as well as new pens from the Pelikan Sourveran and Tradition lines. A customer expressed interest in getting a fountain pen for her kids; we did some research and decided to carry the LAMY ABC and Pelikan Pelikano Junior fountain pens. Now any member from your family can find a fountain pen to suit their needs!
Finally, we have been working on increasing our selection of Eurogames from brands like Rio Grande Games, Mayfair Games, Queen Games, and Z-Man games. Our personal favorites are Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, and Bohnanza... and there are many more to come!
Actually, we have a lot of great things in store for 2010. We will be carrying organizational products from Bob's Your Uncle (all of which I have decided that I must own), notebooks from Picadilly and Whitelines, and leather pen cases from Libelle.
We would love to hear your feedback on your favorite products of the year, and what you would like to see on our site in 2010! Please leave us a comment and tell us your thoughts!
Thank you all again for a fantastic year! Happy writing in 2010!
