I just got my first international Non-Filipino client order!!!
I have had international orders but all of them were Filipinos living/working abroad.
I have also gotten inquiries before from Non-Filipinos but none of them pushed through. The biggest factor could have been the shipping charge from the Philippines to their location.
And so, when I got an email from Amy B., I wasn't that enthusiastic thinking that it would just be another inquiry that eventually will not push through.
I wasn't able to reply to her email right away. After a day or two, I got another email from another person, Lauren C. inquiring about the same invitation style. And it turns out that they were sisters! I was able to reply to her right away and sent Amy the same email.
After couple of days, they got back to me asking about the payment details and I was ecstatic thinking that this is it! This one is actually pushing through! And so it did. :)
As I blog about this today, the invitation package has already arrived in Tennessee. Amy already emailed me yesterday and I couldn't be more thankful for the opportunity. :)
" Jen, you have outdone yourself!
The Madagascar invitations that you made for the boys are simply amazing.
I cannot thank you enough!! It was a pleasure to work with you!!
