RLB ART BOX Studio production began March 2015 and we launched our 1st Art Box in April of 2015. We are so excited to be celebrating our one-year birthday or some may say our one-year anniversary.
Within the year a lot has happened. Personally there have been many changes and adjustments. As the creator and owner of ART BOX I made an emotional decision to quit my teaching job in December, where I taught elementary art for 7.5 years. Each day I had the privilege of teaching art to over 125 kids and making them aware that art is all around them. And has an impact on our daily lives. Showing them how to tap into their inner artist was extremely rewarding. I have to say that I miss my students greatly but I knew that it was now or never to embark on the entrepreneurial life and grow ART BOX.
I am greatly appreciative of all our customers, supporters, mentors, friends, and family members who have believed in ART BOX and continue to show their love for this product.
Over the year the appearance of ART BOX has evolved. When we first started we knew packaging had to be something special, almost like opening a present.
First we started with an envelope- like package shipped in a USPS flat rate shipping envelope.
Second we changed the envelope-like package to a box, we felt like it needed to be in a box to fit the name, ART BOX. The boxes we shipped our product in were USPS small box flat rate shipping.
Then the USPS decided to jack up their rates by over 60%, this is a big deal when you are shipping a large number of items. This was a sign, we needed our own boxes and a better price point for shipping each box and that is what we did.
This month our Anniversary/Birthday ART BOX has been shipped out in our new custom boxes. I never thought I would be so excited about a box. What I love even more about our boxes is that the company we ordered them from was awesome to work with, very personal, and their product is made from 100% recycled materials.
Our hope is that you love our new look as much as we do.
Until next time
