Well, we’re finally settled in to our new home. It took a while to get ourselves uprooted and situated in our new city. We’re working hard to gear up for the holiday season (HOLIDAY! ALREADY?!?!), despite the lure of outdoors during this lovely summer.
We’re working on new bag styles (YAHOO!) and we’ve managed to find some new manufacturing partners that are closer to us (YAHOO x 2! We’re minimizing our carbon footprint even more!). We’re trying not to change too much at once, for our own sanity, but we do think these new partnerships are exciting and very promising. We’re happy to still be able to find ways to make our products in the US.
I also have an amusing update– we just got our trademark cleared. And yes, it took over 2 years! There weren’t even any problems with the mark, just slow processes at the USPTO with all the budget cuts, and apparently I managed to find a lawyer who liked to submit paperwork right before each deadline. In any case, we’re trademarked now, and we’re happy that Plaid Doctrine is so…permanent!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a good Monday!
