It’s finally here.
After months of hard work, we have The Paper Florist Member Directory up and running. I know we’ve been talking it up for a while, but here’s a reminder of just how amazing this tool will be for you.
With this directory, it will be super easy for ideal clients to find you. Paper florists from all over the world can post portfolios and connect with event coordinators, commercial businesses, photographers, and on and on. Our industry is growing rapidly, and our goal with this directory is to keep building on that momentum and make it painless for those outside the paper flower world to find us.
The best part about the directory is that it will take a huge burden off your shoulders when it comes to advertising. I’ll do the heavy lifting by advertising the directory on my platforms, as will the cofounder of the directory, Jessie Chui of Crafted to Bloom. We’ll promote the directory on influential podcasts and blogs, like the popular floristry podcast and website Botanical Brouhaha where it has already been featured.
But you probably have some questions, so let’s answer some of them!
Who can be in the directory?
The directory is open to all paper florists. If you don’t make paper flowers, but sell tools, tutorials, or materials, you are considered a vendor and will be eligible for the directory in the near future.
Is there a fee?
Yes, if you are a Paper Florist, there is a $49 annual fee to be in the directory. This breaks down to $4.08 a month, the same as sharing a coffee with a friend! The fee helps pay for the management of the directory, the website costs, and an IT consultant to code and maintain the directory—all these cool features aren’t available with a simple app.
And for any of our Paper Florists Collective Students that have either attended one of our in-person workshops or purchased any of our online courses through www.thepaperflorists.org, you get a FREE membership to the directory. If you didn't get the email with this notification, please message either Jessie or Quynh, and we will send you the link!
How will you protect my information?
Only those with an account with The Paper Florists Collective can search the directory. Information will not be downloadable and is protected by Kajabi’s secure portal. Any outside links to the directory won’t work.
This directory is going to be a game changer in the paper floral industry. Don’t miss out! Create your profile and start connecting with clients.
