New Skeese Water Bottle

For the first time we're introducing something other than paper products! Similar to previous designs, this cool, bright pink water bottle has a bike chain and cog shaped into a flower. The black lid is tethered to the bottle, which means it won’t get lost! It holds 22 oz of your favorite drink and features ergonomic finger grips on the side. The heavy-wall construction is BPA Free, PETE plastic and carries recycle code #1. It doesn't like the dishwasher at all! It prefers to be washed by hand. It is designed with a twist off lid instead of a push-pull spout.

A great way to carry around some water on a hot summer day!

Etsy Treasury

Etsy.com is a great website to buy directly from artists. There are thousands of individual shops on Etsy, including one for Skeese Greets. The cool thing about it is that you have one shopping cart even though you're buying from different people. That's one easy aspect of the site.

Another feature they have is called a "Treasury." Etsy members can put together items that they think go well together and post them for all to see. Skeese Greets cards have been featured in numerous treasuries, including one for today called, "Austin tatious - Set 2, Spotlight on Austin Sellers". They selected the bike chain card titled "XOXO" which works for many occasions year-round.

Donation to Y Freedom Tri

For the 2nd year in a row, we're donating cute mini cards to the Y Freedom Tri in Pearland, TX. The 300 meter pool swim, 12 mile bike and 3 mile run takes place this Sunday, June 28th.

The guitar, designed from chain and titled "You Rock" will be put in each of the 550 participant race bags. The mini cards, also known as Gift Enclosure Cards (about the size of a credit card), are not yet available to buy online. Look for the "You Rock" and three other designs at the beginning of July.
