Hello from Nashville —
We wanted to check in with all of you to make sure you're staying safe and healthy during these strange times, and to give you some updates about how we're doing here at 1767.
While we're very much operating under social distancing practices, we're still hard at work fulfilling orders as efficiently as we can. Our first priority (as always) is to keep our team members safe; that being said, this work is our passion — we believe that creating art and making beautiful things is especially important during the hard times, and we still need to provide our employees with a steady income. We're proud to say that we've been able to keep our team employed through all of this, and we're hoping to continue to be able to do so.
If you want to support 1767 and continue to buy our work, here are some updated ways that you can shop and engage with us from the safety of your home.
Shop our online store. We have all of our series wall art available in our online store, and it's always available for you to shop online. We're offering free shipping on every purchase within the US, so it's a great time to snag one of the pieces you may have had your eye on for a while now.
Create a custom piece of artwork. We always offer online design sessions for custom artwork, and that hasn't changed. Since many of our customers aren't based in Nashville, we've locked in a really fun, collaborative way to commission custom pieces via online design sessions. This has become even more effective and important since the lockdown began, as it gives us a great way to flex our creative muscles in collaboration with our customers. If you'd like to start a commission of your own, head here.
Buy a gift card. You've likely heard this from many small businesses, but it's worth repeating: If there's a business that you love, but you're not quite ready to make a purchase, buying a gift card is a great way to show your support. During these times when everything is so uncertain, every sale counts toward keeping our business afloat. We offer gift cards starting at $10 in our online store, and they make great gifts (or you can even think of them as a little savings plan toward a future 1767 piece!).
Schedule a virtual design session. If you follow us on Instagram, you've likely seen our Instagram Live design sessions with customers. This is something new we've been trying during the lock-down, and it's been a lot of fun. We go live on Instagram with a customer weekdays between 3:30 and 5 p.m. CST, and together, we allow our followers to watch a design session in real time — from brainstorming the piece to designing the finished product. There's no pressure for you to buy the piece we design, but if you love it, it's a great way to get something really unique and personalized for your home. If you want to throw your name in to be featured on our next live design session, email us here.
Thank you so much for your continued support. If you have any questions or just want to talk, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Instagram.
