greeting cards: The Metropolitan Opera
The one seriously bright spot that came from our first involvement with the National Stationery show was The Metropolitan Opera as a client. They didn't buy the cards we had bought to sell, but hired us to design a series of cards exclusively for them which we did for about 4 years. Over that time we probably supplied them with about 15,000 cards they sold through their Met Opera store and online. On top of these we designed posters and supplied them with certificates for authenticity when they refurbished their crystal chandeliers and sold parts of several. They were great fun, but eventually we both moved on.
