Paperly Wins Two Coveted ETHOS Awards for Product Innovation
Paperly’s personalized iPhone case wins the Product Innovation, Accessories subcategory and its personalized cutting board wins the Product Innovation, Home Durables subcategory
Chicago, IL, May 24, 2012 – Paperly LLC is excited to announce it has won two ETHOS Awards from the Direct Selling Association (DSA) for Product Innovation. Paperly’s personalized iPhone case won within the Accessories subcategory while its personalized cutting board won within the Home Durables subcategory.
“We are honored to be an ETHOS Award recipient,” says Jay Rudman, Paperly’s co-owner and CEO. “Our personalized iPhone case and cutting board have received rave reviews from Paperly’s Consultants, Hostesses and customers. We are very pleased the DSA has recognized that these products are true game-changers.”
Paperly’s personalized iPhone case has quickly become one of its most talked about products because of Paperly’s ability to hyper-customize the case. Customers can choose from 41 design/color combinations, 20 accent colors and 19 fonts. When mixed & matched, the final product truly reflects the customer’s unique personality. The hard-sided case fits the iPhone 4/4s and allows for one line of personalization. Priced at $29.95 each, the case is a steal compared to more expensive, non-personalized cases. Furthermore, Paperly can typically produce its personalized iPhone cases in 3-5 business days, an incredibly quick turnaround for a custom product.
Paperly’s personalized cutting boards further exemplify the hyper-customization of its product line. Made of tempered glass and measuring 11.75″ in diameter, the cutting board is the perfect serving piece, kitchen decoration or personalized gift, especially given its incredibly reasonable price of $44.95.
To the best of Paperly’s knowledge, no other direct selling company is offering iPhone cases or cutting boards, let alone ones that are completely customizable (i.e. designs, colors and fonts). Paperly believes these products – along with its other personalized products – will forever change the direct selling industry.
Paperly will receive its Awards during the DSA’s 2012 Annual Meeting on June 5, 2012. Plus, Paperly is now a finalist to win the overall Product Innovation award. Read more about the ETHOS Award winners at http://www.dsa.org/press/press_releases/?fa=view&docID=4951.
