We’ve been busy here at Simon+Kabuki designing for next year. We are always a year or more ahead of the game. The licensing/manufacturing route takes a really long time. After we submit designs we usually don’t hear back for several months. If a design or collection is chosen it can take an additional 6 months to a year to see any product. We must be very patient, not easy for us Silicon Valley girls where everything happens at the speed of light! Our corporate design business, E and I Design, gives us the instant gratification and payday that we crave but it is so much more rewarding to see something you’ve designed at a store that you shop at! Check out our latest greeting card designs for next Valentine’s Day and Easter. Hope they make it into a store near you.
