The Future of Custom Orders

April 24th, 2008 by Amy

We are thrilled that customers continue to keep us very busy with custom orders 5 years after opening FluffyMail.com! We have had so many requests for custom diapers after closing our wait list recently that we thought we better hurry and decide on a method for taking new orders once we are caught up with the current list. While a wait list seems like the easiest way to do it, it is extremely stressful on us to see dozens of people waiting months and months to place their order. Also, customers contact us daily about being added to the list so it has the potential to grow and grow and grow until the wait is so long your baby will be out of diapers before we get to you!

To keep things relatively easy on us, fair to all of you, and most importantly – organized, we have decided to list custom fitted slots in our Etsy store as we do for AIOs. The custom fitted slots will be for full custom diapers (you choose everything) and the number of fitteds you can order with each slot is unlimited. We will stock these slots randomly, but as frequently as possible. We tend to work on multiple orders at a time so that we can assembly line the construction of the diapers, so you might see multiple custom fitted or AIO listings going up in one day.

We will also continue to stock our Etsy store with print fitteds, plain AIOs, and embroidered diapers. Sewing in-stock items is an important outlet for our personal creativity so we usually have items destined for our Etsy store in progress while we work through customs. Once we are caught up with the current wait list we will start listing slots through our Etsy store.

A Revelation…

April 21st, 2008 by Carli

As a mom of 4 girls I constantly struggle when trying to make a diaper suitable for a boy. Selecting fabric and embroidery for boys is often left to Amy because I cannot put myself into that “mom of boy” reality. It’s so foreign to me. I couldn’t even tell you what themes I would like if I had a boy. Would I like trucks? Boats? Animals? What? And then ….. Amy made this amazing embroidered velour diaper.

Mr Caterpillar

It was then and there that I had the revelation that if I had a boy, THIS would be his diaper. THIS diaper would be my favorite and THIS diaper is the epitome of the word “boy” to me.

Unfortunately, I don’t think having this revelation has helped put me in “boy mom” reality but I’m thankful to have a job that challenges me to step outside of my “girly” arena every once in a while. 😉

Another Custom Order Complete

April 20th, 2008 by Amy

This custom order was a lot of fun to work on. The customer ordered a mixture of knit prints and solid velour diapers so I got to play with a lot of different fabrics while sewing these. They all came out beautiful but I am definitely partial to the all velour diapers.

Motivation

April 19th, 2008 by Amy

 

Nothing motivates me to sew more than a clean sewing room, a sunny day, and new fabric. I have all three of those today, so as far as I am concerned, the day couldn’t get any better. I bought these gorgeous prints to make some summer clothes for my girls but so many of them would make amazing diapers!

Stocking Our Etsy Store Today

April 12th, 2008 by Amy

As the Queens of procrastination, we finally got our business taxes done yesterday so we can now focus completely on our custom list and stocking our Etsy store! We have quite a few diapers that are almost complete so we will stock them on Etsy as we finish them throughout the day (and tomorrow as well). We are still closed to custom orders as we have about 15 people on the list still patiently waiting for their names to come up. For those who have asked, we will list more semi-custom AIO slots on Etsy in the near future and open the custom wait list again as soon as we catch up a bit. Have a wonderful weekend!

We have been a bit quiet lately but we are still working through customs and making some items to stock in our Etsy store. We have some cute Western themed items made up that will be listed on Lily Pad Landing tonight. Here is a sneak peek at the fitteds. We will have some AIOs up as well later today. Enjoy!

Temporarily Closed to Custom Orders

March 9th, 2008 by Amy

Our custom and wait lists are growing daily and we need some time to catch up and restock our Etsy store. We have a lot of new fabrics we want to sew up as well so we are temporarily closing our customs and wait lists in order to focus on making in-stock items for a while. Once we catch up with our wait list and restock Etsy we will open for customs again. Have a great week!

Spring Break!

March 7th, 2008 by Amy

The kids are out of school next week so we are headed out of town to spend some family time at the lake. I am hoping to have most of the in-progress custom orders shipped out by tomorrow and will start up again on the wait list as soon as I return. I won’t have access to email so if you need anything, please email sales@fluffymail.com and Carli will be around in the evenings to answer email.

Have a great weekend!

Welcome to our blog!

March 5th, 2008 by Amy

We thought we would give blogging a try as a way to update our customers quickly without sending out detailed newsletters. So much happens around our homes on a daily basis that affects when and what we will be stocking. We hope that it will be much easier to update everyone by posting here on our blog. We will try to keep everyone up to date on what we are planning on stocking and when that stocking might take place. You can also check the status of your custom order or your position on our wait list using the link on the side bar to the right.

We also hope to use this blog as a way to answer questions about our diapers and our business such as:

  • Are you open for custom orders?
  • When will you be stocking size 2 LC knit fitteds? (This is a common question lately!)
  • How did FluffyMail.com come about?
  • Do you both sew all of the products you sell?

Take a look around and let us know you have found your way here by leaving us a quick ‘hello’ in our comments section!
