With the start of 2018, we wanted to take this time to look back on 2017. What an incredible year it has been, filled with lots of unexpected and amazing things!
This year, we’ve seen many outstanding pieces and have met countless clients who are all so interesting! This is the part that we are the most thankful for. The fact that you let us into your lives while we work on your special projects, the stories that we get to keep with us and the many friends we gain as new clients come into our shoppes leave us in awe.
You have let us into your lives as we worked on an old Tibetan scroll, signed UFC gloves, medals of honor, rosary beads, classic albums, teachers' gifts, favorite books and stitchery to commemorate Canada's 150th anniversary to name a few. We also were privileged to have worked on some top-secret projects that hopefully we can reveal to you in the New Year! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
We’ve grown so much in 2017! Matt and I had a vision for Le Frame Shoppe when we first created this brand in 2013, and over the years we managed to solidify our voice in the industry. As brand expectations grew, our logo had to better reflect Le Frame Shoppe. After many hours spent working on logo designs, in March 2017, we finally decided on the fresh new look that can be recognized today!
With this update came a new look for our business cards, gift certificates and our commercial brochures. ‘Housekeeping’ was definitely a huge part of this past year!
How grateful we are that you keep us busy! As such, we added to our wonderful team! I’m sure some of you had a chance to meet our amazing talent already. With such a wonderful group we were able to further develop our commercial division, Framepro Services. Companies like Air Canada, The Montreal Alouettes, The Quint Group, Blind Ferret Entertainment, Synergy Medical and Erevna Innovations are part of our 2017 commercial list.
Over the year, we also reformatted and created some new social media features. We’ve been doing our Tuesday Tip for a while, but in 2017 it was time to breathe new life into it. With a few tweaks we created a new look that has been well received! Thank you!
We also just recently added our Friday Frame Fact feature. This has been a fun one for us to research and create weekly. I’m pleased that so many of you like it as well!
The biggest unexpected event of 2017 was opening our third shoppe in Beaconsfield! We knew that we wanted to expand one day, but that ‘one day’ came earlier than expected. Like all good things, you have to jump on an opportunity when it presents itself. As of November 2017, Le Frame Shoppe has three retail shoppes, a 4500 square foot production facility and a commercial division, Framepro Services!
What a year! Thank you for your support, encouragement and smiles! Wishing you all a happy New Year!
