New Collection Features Stories about Each Dog
NEW YORK, NY – May 22, 2006 – Verysupercool today announced the company’s newest collection of greeting cards for Spring 2006 – Bonkers and Buddies. Unveiled at the 60th Annual National Stationery Show in New York City, the Bonkers and Buddies collection brings the dog models to life, not just in the artful photo, but also in the new feature on the back of the card – a short story delving into each dog’s personality, quirks and origin.
“Allan and I really get to know our dog models during our photo shoots and we learn a lot of really fun information about them,” said Verysupercool owner, Sue Rostvold. “People would naturally ask us all about the dogs featured when they saw are cards and really loved it when Allan and I would share our anecdotes. In this fourth collection, we decided to share these fun facts with our customers by writing up the stories on the back of each card.”
Bonkers, a nine-month old bull dog, is joined by nine of his buddies, 7 of them are pure breds and 2 others that mixes., Bonkers’ buddies span all stages of a dog’s life – from puppyhood (or from just months old) to active adults to our beloved seniors. In addition, many of the dogs are from rescue organizations that are mentioned on the back of the card.
Bonkers buddies include Alobar, a 3 year old Blue Great Dane; Art, a 9 year old Pomerarian; Big, a 10 year old Blue Great Dane; Buster, a 14 year old Golden Retriever Dash, a 5 year old Belgian Tervuren;; Hershey, a 7 year old Chocolate Lab; Maddox, a 6 month old Yellow Labrador Retriever; Rugs a 1 year old Old English Sheep Dog and Wheaten Terrier mix and, Sprout a 14 year old Chihuahua and Jack Russell Terrier mix. This new line joins three others previously released collections: Luna and Her Family, Wenge and Pals and Speckles and Friends.
The new collection will soon be available at all locations that sell Verysupercool cards.
