Inky Rewards Changing to Inky Loyalty

Inky Hot Mess is making some changes to our Inky Rewards program. Current Inky Rewards Cards will still be stamped and they can be redeemed until August 31, 2017. We will stop issuing the current Inky Rewards Cards on June 3rd (supplies are limited). So get your cards filled and redeemed! All Inky Rewards Cards redeemed by August 31st will get you into VIP Day.

On June 15th, we will begin issuing Inky Loyalty Cards. This new program will reward you for your loyal business at Inky Hot Mess. We will hold onto these cards! Each time you make a $10 purchase (regularly priced merchandise only) at our shop, you will receive a stamp. Once your card has 10 stamps, you will be entered into our VIP Day jar. VIP Day is limited to 20 people. The more cards you fill up, your chances increase for getting a VIP Day ticket! 

What's so exciting about VIP Day? VIP Day takes place on a Saturday afternoon in September. Our shop is closed to the public and we celebrate our VIP's! Our VIP's get to make a few projects and experiment with some new products. Each VIP receives a FREE Gift Bag with a retail value of at least $30. We have TONS of door prizes including autographed items from celebrities! The entire shop is on sale to our VIP's. They will also receive a coupon book to use throughout the year. 

For every $50 purchase (regularly priced merchandise only excluding sales tax), you will receive a ticket for VIP Day. At VIP Day these tickets will be used for our door prize drawings. We've had autographed items from famous designers, a Sizzix machine, a Bo Bunny purse, dies, stamps, and tons of other goodies as door prizes. There will be autographed items again this year! We will have a die cutting machine to give away! Have a $100 purchase? You'll get 2 tickets! Purchases are NOT cumulative. 

One lucky lady will be selected as our VIP for the year! The VIP will be randomly selected during VIP Day. Our VIP receives 20% off all regularly priced merchandise for an entire year! 

VIP Day is our way of thanking you for being loyal Inky Hot Mess customers! We truly appreciate your business and want to thank you!

Inky Hot Mess is EXPANDING!!!

Inky Hot Mess has a grand announcement.....





How are we expanding? A unique, expandable classroom space. A kitchen. A bathroom that's not in the office. The shop will be larger as well. Then there's the parking! We will have tons and tons of off street parking in a parking lot that surrounds the building!!!!!


Sadly, we are leaving downtown Geneva, but we're not going far! We hunted high and low throughout Canandaigua, Geneva, Waterloo, and Seneca Falls to find the perfect location. Months of searching have finally come to an end. We're moving to Pre Emption Road (County Road 6) in Geneva! We can't wait to start moving to our new shop! It's going to be GORGEOUS!!!

Inky Hot Mess is so excited about this move. We are ecstatic to have plenty of handicap accessible parking available!!!! The new shop has a wonderful ADA compliant bathroom. Did I mention we'll have central air? I'm not sure what we're most excited about!

In our brand new shop, we will be adding more themes! We will be adding military and more sports right away. We're on the hunt for new themes as well. Ribbon by the yard in a TON of colors. Over 80 new embossing powders. We have TONS of brand new products being shipped to our new shop. We are adding several new companies such as Impression Obsession, Scrapbook Customs, Newton's Nook Designs, Catherine Pooler Stamps, Nicole Tamarin Illustration, Darcie's Heart and Home, Verses, Reverse Confetti, Art Gone Wild, Inky Antics, and more!

We will be offering more Workshops! There will be a brand new monthly Sizzix Workshop and they have been kind enough to send us door prizes for the Workshops! That's right, you will have a chance to win a FREE item from Sizzix. They've sent us dies, embossing folders, stamps, glitter cutting pads, a variety of tools, paper pads, and so much more. Sizzix has been INCREDIBLY generous.

Our weekly Thursday Crop Day will be FREE!!!! You'll be able to crop all day for FREE. We will be expanding our shop hours and crop hours as well.

Our shop on Castle Street will close on Saturday June 3rd at 2pm. We will reopen at the JRB Commons located at 590 Pre Emption Road (County Road 6) on Thursday June 15th at 11am.

We will keep you updated with photos and info along the way. Our new store is already under construction! New flooring needs to be installed. Walls need to be painted. Racks needs to be hung on the walls. Our fixtures and furniture will need to be moved. All of our products will need to be moved. And lastly we need to decorate! Have you ever had butterflies climb out of your walls? Yuppers, we will have paper butterflies coming out of our walls in our new shop! We'll show you how you can do this at home!
