From concept to reality the Gates Satchel was ready for its close up. Lights, Camera, Action!


Today the Gates Satchel has launched, we would like to thank everyone involved for their hard work and dedication. You can see all five Gates Satchels on the GiGi New York website and on Elements of Style.

GiGi New York at rSTheCon 2014

Last week we spent the weekend in Dallas, TX at rewardStyle’s annual conference for their top 200 publishers. We met and re-connected with some of our favorite girls, got to set up a stamping booth to personalize some goodies for them, and snapped some awesome pictures. Overall it was great to see everyone in one place and be able to discuss future collaborations and special projects. Thanks to everyone who came to see us and for all of your support!
