As Luck would have it, Lucky Day will be attending Surtex 2013

Cleveland based Lucky Day Studio will be debuting new designs at SURTEX 2013 in New York City on May 19-21. They will be located in booth 325 in the Javits Center with over 200 pieces that combine whimsical line drawings, character development, unique subject matter and modern color combinations.

And luck has finally paid off for co-owners Donna Catanese and Julia Briggs. “It’s true what they say… it’s an honor just to be nominated,” says Donna. “We are thrilled to report that our greeting card design for Paper Magic was nominated for a 2013 Louie Award in the category of Children’s cards $3.50 and below. We are grateful to be in such amazing company with the other nominees - but secretly hoping we’re lucky enough to get a win.”

“Our customers challenged us this year with some extremely fun and unique subject material which inspired many of the new designs we’ll be showing in New York,” says Julia. You will definitely be rewarded for visiting Lucky Day Studio at Surtex Booth 325.
