Coming Soon!

Dear Friends,

Thank you again for submitting your gorgeous cards for publication my book. While working on this project, I’ve decided to share some important information about the book release dates.

The book is about 80% done. I was really surprised how many greeting card companies and design studios from USA, Canada, Belgium, Sweden, France & Brazil have confirmed their participation in this project (including Shutterfly, Sincerely, Minted, Vanilla Print, A Fresh Bunch, and some other well-known brands). Processing paperwork for large corporations takes more time than I expected… That’s why I’m a little bit behind the deadline.

The book is scheduled for release by August 2012, and will be available for the following devises: iPad, NOOK (2012) and Kindle (2013). By the way, even if you don’t have an eBook reader, you still can download and read electronic books by using a desktop application for Mac or PC. Check Barnes &Noble website.

What’s In Plans:

  • The book will be presented at the National Stationery Show in New York (2013).
  • A copy of the book will be submitted to the Library of the U.S. Congress.
  • Copies of the book will be sent to editors of the following magazines: Print, CMYK, Communication Arts, Stationery Trends, HOW, Greetings etc. (USA), Greetings Today (UK), Design Edge (Canada), Etapes Graphiques (France), Novum (Germany), kAk (Russia) + some online design magazines. The list of magazines is constantly being updated and expanded. I hope this will help to get your works noticed by mass media representatives.
