Default Finally--back to what we do!!!

"They" say that if you wait until conditions are perfect, you will never act!!
(I've heard this applied to starting a business and to having children).

Well, ExoticBlanks new location is NOT perfect, yet, we are still searching for some products that have not made the "organized bins". We do not have phones or internet connection to the building. (We ARE receiving email with a "hot spot", so that is still the best method of communicating with us!!) BUT, we are close enough to go back to what we enjoy doing--providing a great selection of pen products, with "combinable" discounts. And, also offering unique handmade products from our many "artist-partners".



So, welcome back!!

We will be restocking the PSI, Berea, CSUSA and Dayacom all in the next couple weeks (some of those will require 2 month lead time--but many will be available by the week of July 15). Dawn will be taking pics of the many new products from partners and vendors--by "show prep season" (Late August) we expect all the ducks to be "in a row", ready to fill orders both large and small!

As always we sincerely thank those of you who have made ExoticBlanks your "go-to" vendor, which has led to this nice new location--no stairs!! our old legs are extremely grateful!!!

Looking forward to continuous improvement!
Dawn (pr_Princess) and Ed (Ed4copies)
aka ExoticBlanks.com

Looks like the building could double as a walk-in store front also.

VERY LIMITED parking and not currently handicap accessible---so it will not be suitable, at the moment. I have already talked with the neighbor who has more parking than he needs, so someday I could see us making this a "storefront".

Right now we are just as "happy as pigs in mud puddle"!! (Wisconsin you know--farming)
