Hooray for Spring! As we approach our 2nd anniversary, we've got a few changes in store. Some are announced here in this newsletter, and some will be covered in the next newsletter. We are deep into Spring cleaning, retiring images and moving things around in the shopping cart to match the new catalog.

Change to Online Selling Policy 

Beginning June 1, 2008, stores may offer our products online.

Please contact us if you need graphics to load the images, and we'll be happy to provide web-ready images for you. And if you have a system that allows upload of new inventory by spreadsheet, we'll be happy to work with you to make that as easy as possible.
New Images 

We are very excited to announce a new batch of images that are available to wholesale stores only through the month of May. We'll be announcing these images to the public in the first few days of June.

The new "space cupcake" and "circus" themed supplement includes designs from Johanna and Kelly, but also images from an artist we've just started working with, NC Winters.
You can download a PDF of the new supplement here. Since the images are not available through the shopping cart yet, if you would like to place an order early, you may do so using our order form. You can fax (760-888-0382) or email (johanna@justjohanna.com) the form.
The new images are in stock now and ready to ship to wholesale customers.
Discontinued Items 

If you've been in the online shopping cart lately, you may have noticed that we've added a new category for Discontinued items.

All items in the Discontinued category are offered at 40% off the regular retail price. If you order items in that category, your wholesale discount WILL allow you to purchase the items at half of the 40% off price. Bargain, right?
Even better... for items in the Discontinued category, you don't have to meet the 2-per-image minimum. So if you want to be able to special order items that will soon be unavailable for your customers, go right ahead.
Quantities are limited, and because the "back order" ability is turned off for those items, the system will not allow you to purchase more than the quantity currently in stock.
However, a word of caution from me... maybe at bargain prices, those items will sell quickly. But at full price, they moved very slowly.
Special Deals 
Did you realize that the monthly Special Deal is available for wholesale customers too? Your wholesale discount (50%) will be deducted from the already reduced price of the bundled deal. Yep, this month's deal will wholesale for $9.00.
In January 2008, we began offering these bundled sets on a monthly basis, and have focused our design team on promoting these combinations of stamps. The monthly deal is promoted in our retail newsletter and multiple times throughout the month on our justjohanna and design team blogs.  
In addition to the promotional photos and blog posts, there's a gallery folder for each month's deal and a printable inspiration sheet. Cards shown in the photo above were created by Dianne McInrue. 
Price Increase 
Effective June 1, 2008, our prices will increase. Generally, the RETAIL increase per price code (A, B, C, etc.) will be 50 cents. We will be adding codes at the upper end of the scale to reflect the higher costs associated with producing the larger stamps, so for the largest images in the collection, you may see RETAIL increases up to $1.00.
What does that mean for wholesale prices? Generally, wholesale prices will be increase 25 cents per price code.
Our new RETAIL prices will range from $4.50 to $17.00.
Any order placed prior to June 1, 2008, will be at our current rates. Orders placed on or after June 1, 2008, will reflect the increased rates.
US Postage Rate Increase

Effective May 12, 2008, US postage rates will increase. We ship nearly all of our packages via US Priority Mail, and charge actual shipping for wholesale orders, so you'll see a small increase in the shipping charges for orders placed on or after May 12.
