I Love A Latte in exchange for a fair and honest review.
All opinions are the author’s own.
Welcome to The Latte Special which will feature great products that hopefully add a little something extra to your daily life. Today it’s all about adding style to your paper planners and as soon as I opened up my package, I was impressed. The extra care that IntCo gives to product packaging meant no damaged product upon delivery. IntCo packages their shipment of stickers in a mini file folder that slides easily into the planner envelope in the back of my Plum Planner. Cute right? Organization simplified and a pretty blue color too!
If you use a paper planner then this is the post for you. If not, perhaps someone in your might be in the market for cute stickers to accessorize their personal planner, notes, or anything that could use a little bling. The colors are soft and the designs offered are useful.
As for the variety, it’s quite extensive and ranges from Weekly to Monthly sticker sheets, holiday sets, Author stickers and tons of cuties to enhance your weekly planner. Whatever styles you choose, these stickers will put a smile to your day! Organizing has never been more fun!
I recently had a chance to chat with Kurt Bennett, the owner of IntCo. IntCo is an Etsy shop that provides stickers and products for planner enthusiasts.
Rae: First, for those who don’t know anything about you or your company, can you share how IntCo came to be?
Kurt: The start of INT Co. is funny because it started as a Christmas gift for the wife of a particular cutting machine. She hadn’t asked for a specific one so I researched and purchased one I thought she would like, but it wasn’t the one she wanted. I worked with her to make it easier to use but out of frustration did buy the one she wanted with the intention of selling the first one.
Somewhere in the process she and friends thought I should open a shop selling stickers for planners, focused towards the writing and author community. I had already made several sticker sheets that she wanted for her planners.
So I began a crash course in Etsy, Instagram, and graphics design. When asked what the shop name would be I decided on INT Co, because “I Needed Tires” for my old truck and I felt I would be able to make enough to get them.
Rae: What products do you support?
Kurt: I support stickers for the Erin Condren, Happy Planner Classic, and the Jibun Techo A5 and B6 Slim Planners. I have also done custom sets for the Passion Planner Mini, and the Hobonichi Planner.
Rae: Does IntCo take customer requests?
Kurt: All of the time. Whether it is for a modification for something already in the shop or something new altogether. A lot of the designs were suggested or asked for by Int Co customers. If a customer requested something unique they don’t want to share, than they are the keeper of that design. But if they want to share it I usually will get them the first set for free as a thank you, and then make it available to everyone.
Rae: I noticed you had a Weekly Planner-Christmas Holidays Set, do you have one for Hanukkah?
Kurt: I do have a Hanukkah sticker in the current December Monthly Set, but do not have a set devoted solely to Hanukkah. As we discussed I will take a look at it, it sounds like a super idea.I am dedicated to creating useful and unique products that will help authors, writers, and planners simplify their planning activities and have fun while doing it.
Rae: That sounds great! Do you run any promotions or giveaways for customers old and new?
Kurt: Int Co customers are simply the best and I run random drawings throughout the year to give away free prizes, as well as the Int Co Birthday Celebration in January. Its called giving it back to the folks who have made this successful.
Rae: What do you see for the future with products?
Kurt: Int Co is growing and changing as needed to meet the needs of the Planner Community. Whether its adding new planners and different themes, or even our new Planner focused T-Shirts and bags.
Rae: I understand Hilde has a line too, what products is she offering?
Kurt: I wanted to branch Int Co out into other areas and had been wanting to develop T-Shirts and Canvas Totes. Hildie stepped in and did a lot of the leg work. I still do the basic draft designs and implement her suggestions to meet what she would like to see as a Planner. She now actually makes everything herself, other than the computer work. We hope to expand this out as time permits and the demand is there. The neat thing is that everything is customizable, from the colors to the added extra’s that the customer might want on their order.
