LOOK BACK, MOVE ON!

December 10, 2012

The time has come to stop sewing for the year! (We're moving so I really have no choice!) And I've been thinking about ways to expand PaperKrane online in the new year while the craft market scene is a little quiet. 

Part of that is going to be me having to become more savvy in respects to promoting my store/products. Right now I have a 12 month listing on Kid Spot (a big online baby/parenting website with about 65,000 fans on Facebook) but I have yet to see how that has been of benefit to me. I can see there have been a few people who have been directed to my website from Kid Spot, but not many sales? I actually get more traffic from my PaperKrane facebook page which has only 650 likers! So lots of research on how I can make things work for PaperKrane! 

Anyway, I thought I'd post a few links to articles, interviews and other things featuring PaperKrane from my first 2/3 of a year in business...

A pic of a market listing in The Age newspaper, for one of my favourite markets, the Love, Evelyn Markets in Fitzroy. (Oh yeah! I'm a designer!)

This one is an interview for Shopify (the platform I use for my website) INTERVIEW WITH MARCUS

Also Shopify, it's nice to feel loved! BEST OF SHOPIFY

Here is a 'Meet the Maker' feature on Handmade kids, a great site run by the friendly and craft Maryanne. MEET THE MAKER

And one last pic, also a market listing in The Age, for the Indie Marketplace. Pretty stoked to actually have a picture of my booties chosen to appear on that one! 



So have a great Christmas, come say hi on Facebook, or put through an order on the website! Anyway, I'll see you around after the big move, and the big break from working!!

PK SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE

FOR BEST RESULTS... 

For ideal and best fit, it's always recommended you have around 10-12mms of space in front of your toes. Our size chart is specific to our footwear, and may differ from your usual footwear.

If needing further instructions on "How to Measure" please scroll down below the size charts.

Once you have measured, please take a good look at the info we have provided on our size charts.

HOW TO MEASURE

Stand with feet on a piece of paper, and mark where the end of the longest toe/s are, and middle point of the back of the heel. 

Use a ruler to measure between those two points. (Use your longest foot measurement to choose a size) 

If socks will be worn in the shoes, pop on the socks and then measure in the same manner. 

We also include a width measurement across the widest part of the shoe, this is a measurement of the FLATTEST part of the sole, so there is always more available space than stated, as the sole curves out and up giving your feet more room to spread.

We also have a natural rubber sole that is able to flex with a foot, which helps accomodate feet that have more width. 

While the available length measurements are the same across all styles, the upper construction affects the fit and feel of the shoe. 

See HERE for a more detailed "FIT and FEEL" description of each of our PaperKrane styles.
