CHA Summer 2011: Fun & Fabulous!

We had a fabulous CHA Summer 2011!

Love My Tapes has been known for our quality & value in our double-sided adhesive runners for years ---- but not as many show attendees had seen or heard about our "fun" products yet. People would be race-walking past our booth on a mission to get to the concessions, to Jillibean Soup (nearby) or to Bella Blvd (nearby) when they would practically skid to a halt! {insert sound of squealing brakes here, lol }

Let me share with you our stars from the show that literally stopped people in their tracks:

Beautiful Lace Tapes!

Those lace tapes are my favorite. Aren't they fabulous? They are beautiful --- but with a super-strong adhesive that will stick to the peskiest of surfaces. You've got to feel it to believe it!

Retro Canvas Stickers. Fun & kitschy!

Fabric Sheets (Adhesive Backed)

These babies are SO much fun. You can't believe the texture you'll feel in person. The faux leather *feels* like leather! The animal prints *feel* like faux fur! The others are printed canvas. Run these babies through your die-cut machine and create your own custom, mixed media pieces!

Check out what Love My Tapes design team member Rita Barakat made with the brown faux leather...

A .99 frame made to look like a $39.99 frame with our faux leather fabric sheet :)

Here is our Susan Mintmire along with DT member Rita Barakat enjoying a little fun in the booth.....

A few other members of the Faber-Castell Design Team stopped by to visit. They were overrun with ideas of ways to customize our canvas stickers and our white lace tapes...

Mou Saha, Jennifer Matott, and Rita Barakat are thinking inky :)

But most of the time, it was action, action, action!!

We had a great time at the show and if you were there, I hope you got a chance to stop by and say hello. We had a great response from retailers, distributors and designers alike. My feet got tired, but it's not "work" to do a show like this when you're getting such great feedback :)

Meanwhile, our design team is just getting started with projects to share via the blog, so stay tuned!
