Update #1 - THANK YOU
It’s been about a year in the making and we’re so excited to have finally launched the BVOY Travel Journal! About a year ago in October 2016 we took a road trip through California and it was there that the idea for this journal was born (we can share more on that story in another update)! It’s surreal to think about how far we’ve come…from imagining the journal, to scribbling what it would look like, to printing and folding some papers together as a prototype, to receiving our first sample and holding the physical copy in our hands, to our first backer! The journey is only beginning!
We want to extend a huge thank you and a very big virtual hug to everyone who has supported us and backed this project so far. You are helping to make our vision for this journal and our brand become a reality. We do not take your support for granted and are humbled that you believe in this idea. We can’t wait for you to receive your journal and have enriched travel experiences!
We also want to take some time to share where we are right now with the project. We have recently approved our final sample and are working towards securing our full production order soon. Ahhh! As you can imagine we are nervous to hit GO but also so excited this is happening. Simultaneously, we are also working on raising awareness of our product by creating a social media presence through Instagram (@bvoyco) and reaching out to influencers, bloggers, businesses, you name it! We are still testing out the best ways to get our message across, resonate with people, and get them interested in the journal. We know there are travellers out there who would benefit from this journal being in their travel bag…we just need to reach them! Going to work each day (we both work regular 9-5 jobs right now) is so challenging since we’ve launched because all we want to do is dedicate all our time to this! Each day we’re so excited to rush home and figure out next steps. Spreading the word to as many people as possible will be very important to making this campaign a success. You can help us by telling your friends as well!
We have so much more we’d like to share with you so stay tuned to our updates to hear about everything from how production is going, to what we’ve experienced throughout this journey, to our vision for the BVOY & Co. brand, and more!
We’d love for you to be there every step of the way and look forward to hearing your feedback and thoughts along the way as well :)
Talk again soon,
Jo & Jen
P.S. Look how far we've come with our journal prototype to our first sample!
