Product Retirement

Here at Origami Owl we are constantly evaluating and improving our product lines based on trend forecasting and Designer requests. So, even though we love all of our products, we need to ensure that we are continually providing our Designers with the most up to date styles. With the launch of our exciting new product line, a few of our golden oldies are being retired to make way for new and improved designs.

Reminder - Chains no longer included with locket purchase on retail orders

Please remember that as of November 1st, any online orders or orders entered using the party tab for a locket will no longer include the standard ball chain, only wholesale orders will (until 1/1/13). The new take out menus and website have been reflected to show all items are now a la carte. The locket prices have remained the same and the standard ball chain is $8.

Webinar Schedule

The Corporate webinars are transitioning to Monday evenings at 9pm EST.
11/5 - No webinar scheduled
