Salutations is making a big change in your favor!
In the past three years we at Salutations have learned that working with you all is our passion, so that is where we want to focus our energy. Therefore, after careful consideration, we have made the strategic decision to close our retail store in Briarcliff Village on June 30th so we can focus on you first and foremost.

This change will allow us to spend more time concepting, researching new styles and print techniques, and assembling your custom jobs to ensure we offer you the highest quality product. It will not impact the timing of any current or future projectsif anything, it should increase the amount of time we can dedicate to your requests. You will have more of our undivided attention without the distraction of the retail space.

We are very excited about this change and hope you are too! Once the store is closed, we can meet wherever and whenever is convenient for you — and even deliver your products to you. We hope to make this an easy transition for our current clientele. We will be moving into a new studio space, so you’ll also have the option of coming to that location. Stay tuned for more on that soon.

We hope you understand this business change and recognize we have chosen to do this so we can focus more on you…after all, it is YOUR day! Thank you for all your support the last three years and we look forward to working with you in Salutations’ next chapter starting this summer!

 

With the holiday season quickly approaching it’s time to start thinking about shopping trips and gift purchases.  This year Salutations is starting our own gift-wrapping service.  We have tons of festive ribbon options and styles you get to choose from to pair with our brown Kraft paper wrap.

Gift Wrap Options

Want a more decorative wrapping paper?  We also sell rolls of printed paper, which you can purchase and have us use to wrap your gifts as well.

Feel free to bring in all of your packages and let us take care of their “presentation” for you.  For a small fee we can create a uniform look for all your gifts while freeing you from the hours wrapping can take.

 

Don’t forget to finish each present with a cute custom gift tag made by us!

Goblins and ghosts and ghouls… Oh my!  With Halloween just around the corner, Salutations has tons of “Horror-ific” merch littering the store!  Throw the perfect “Fright Night” of your own with the help of all of our “Mummified” invitations, orange and black party favors, and perfect door-to-door candy bags.

Were also gearing up for Briarcliff’s annual Trunk-or-Treat event, which takes place on October 30th at the shopping center.   You’re sure to find tons of costumes and candy at this family friendly event along with fun for everyone! So put on your scariest mask and join us!

 

Autumn is our favorite time of the year at Salutations.  Not only is the heat index coming down, but for us fall means new products, window decorations, and more weddings in the works!

 

For our new window display we decided to bring a little of the outdoors in with fantastic oversized wired leaves and a couple synthetic bare trees to promote the changing seasons.

 

Our fall merchandise includes everything you need to throw a horror-ific Halloween party and perfect teacher’s gifts.  After weeks of sweating through the hottest days of the year, there’s nothing better than gathering for cider and cookies before the high school football game or throwing a game night with your closest friends.  And as always, Salutations can take care of all your fall party invitation needs whether it be custom or in-house imprints.

 

 

With school gearing back up for the year, stocking your backpacks with writing utensils, notebooks and back-to-school accessories is a must.  We’re loving the patterned pencil holders, jeweled pens and fun magnets, fit for any college dorm room, we’re carrying right now!  Come visit us to check all those fall necessities off your list.

We’ll soon be going all out into fall mode!  Stay tuned for updates on new products and invitation ideas coming soon.  Also, keep posting your workshop suggestions in our workshop section.  Yours could be chosen and you get to attend for free!  Who doesn’t love free stuff?!  Happy school year!

 

We absolutely love handmade paper!  Not only is it completely unique and comes in so many different colors and patterns, but the potential uses for it are limitless.  We’re constantly coming up with new ideas to put it to use.

Some of our handmade papers

One of our most recent inspirations came from an old summer favorite: pinwheels.  We went crazy decorating our store window with them and couldn’t stop there.  We’ve put together some fun handmade paper pinwheel kits with everything you need to create your own!  Complete with step-by-step instructions and pre-cut pieces, pinwheels have never been easier.

We also created pennant banner kits for decorating any summer party.   They’re so fun and cute you might get carried away making your own!

 

With the summer heat wave picking up, the only thing most people have a hankering for is an air-conditioned oasis or to recline poolside all day.  We’re all about keeping cool with fun and unique ways and what better means to chill out than a refreshing summer drink or two.  Porch Parties by Denise Gee, one of the fun books we have in the store, contains over 50 recipes of delicious drinks and cocktails perfect for summer get-togethers!  We thought we’d share a couple to tempt your taste buds. Enjoy!
