Welcome to July’s Newsletter! Is anyone else wondering where on earth this gorgeous weather is coming from? Apparently it’s the best summer we’ve seen in the UK since 1976!! There’s a fan shortage, paddling pools are out of stock and the UK’s grass is looking more like hay than the green green grass of home! Nevertheless it’s so nice to be able to take the kids out in the sunshine, enjoy splash parks and have a great start to the summer holidays.
We hope you’re having the best summer so far and as always, we wanted to give you an update from us and what’s been going on behind the scenes here at Mila and Pheebs HQ.
This month we sent out our Baking Box which has been a great hit so far. You guys aren’t just talking about the products inside though.. Loads of you have said how much you like our new box designs and we’re so grateful! It’s been a long time in the making and we’ve gone through so many designs.. stripes, spots, minimal colour, explodes of colour and then Pete came up with the current design which we all fell in love with.
For now we’ve used our usual white boxes with glossy box stickers just to make sure we like the design but we recently went to a local box printing company. They’re also based in Wales and were super lovely. They showed us around their warehouse, showed us how the boxes are made and even gave us some box samples for us to take back to the office with us. It takes a while to finalise box sizes and all the technical stuff but we’re aiming to have printed boxes by the time we send out September’s subscription boxes so watch this space!
