Truly Victorian has always been proud of being a small local company, that uses local services and products to produce our patterns. The one downside, is that we are then limited by local availability. Recently, our provider of paper for the cover sheets of our patterns, Kelly Paper, has cut back on paper types and styles. Specifically, the legal-sized, colored, cardstock sheets we've been using are no longer available.
Which left us with a dilemma. We could keep the color, but go down to a letter sized sheet. Or we could go with keeping the legal sheets, and loose the color, going with a white sheet for all the patterns. After much debate, and redesign, we have come up with a compromise, which I like even better than what we have now. I wish we had come up with this earlier!
We are going with white sheets and new colored print. Here is a sample of how it will look. The patterns will still be color-coded by time period, so you can easily find patterns that can be mix-and-matched for complete outfit. But the overall look of the patterns will be more consistent, for a cohesive, professional look. We will be gradually easing in the redesign, as we exhaust our existing supplies and stock on hand. I hope you all like the new look as much as we do!
