Warehouse Wednesday: What's it like to work at Frantic Stamper?

What's it like to work at Frantic Stamper?

We get asked that question all the time. "It must be so much fun playing with all the products". My answer, yes, it must, but we don't get to play with it much. You see, our job is to please YOU, the customer. Our goal is to pull your order quickly, and to do so means organization.

Bins and tubs take up most of our warehouse shelves. When we pull an order, we need to be able to find the products quickly and efficiently. Items are stored by code (which is why it's so important to have those codes when you order). Our aisles are organized by company. Larger companies have their own aisles, and smaller companies share aisles. We have a HUGE Prima aisle, a Ranger aisle, an Inkadinkado aisle, etc. You get the idea.

I'm often asked if a customer passing through the area or living locally can come "browse". It's not that easy. We're not set up all pretty like a store. In fact, our warehouse is quite "un-glamourous". You can't just see all the pretties hanging on hooks like in a store. There are no sample projects adorning the walls. Only rows of bins and plastic tubs. Here are a few pictures to illustrate what we mean.

The first picture is of a portion of our Inkadinkado aisle. Next is part of our Prima aisle. And lastly, a portion of our Ranger aisle. As you can see, it all looks about the same. Bins with coded tabs. But that's how we can best find your items, and that's our goal. Because we want YOU to receive your order and be able to create as fast as you can.

Next I'd like to share with you a new line we received a few days ago. Fans of Susan Winget's designs will love the new K&Company Botanical products, a continuation of last year's popular line. Featuring birds and butterflies as well as spring florals, this line is so pretty and relaxing. We've just unboxed it all, so nothing is put away yet! That's tomorrow's job. I'll be adding these products (and many more than shown here) on the site tomorrow.

I wish you non-stop inspiration and creativity!
