Feb. 2021 - Aug. 2022
I worked as an invitation consultant at a local small business, helping the owner with an array of things. I started out by assisting in making online orders for bridal customers with partnered vendors like Carlson Craft and Printswell and helping walk-ins design their invitations for internally produced projects using Inscribe software, as well as counting and inspecting every order that arrived.
I also created signage for the store as well as signs for "day-of" event needs and all of the customer seating scrolls.
Towards the end of my time there, I was also running some of the bridal appointments, opening and closing the store, cleaning the gift shop storefront, and training other employees.
