If given the opportunity, I would lock myself in my bedroom for two days with nothing but a 6-pack of Diet Dr. Pepper, a copy of Martha Stewart Living, and my jammies. I love her - her magazines - her merchandise - her books - her unapproachable style! So, when offered the opportunity to write about the unveiling of the Martha Stewart Collection of invitations that she has designed exclusively for Pingg, I was beside myself.
Back in late October, the simplicity and class of Pingg caught the attention of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc (MSLO), who decided to invest and and enter into a commercial agreement with Pingg. Based in New York, Ping was co-founded in 2006 by brothers Lorien Gabel and Matt Harrop. Lorien and Matt are CEO and CTO respectively. Their third business venture together, Pingg is a new, free invitation creation and event management platform that lets design conscious hosts seamlessly create, send and manage stylish online and print invitations and event communications for personal and professional events. With stylish designs, integrated print, social networking features, customizable event web page and easy to use tools, Pingg is changing the way hosts create and plan their events on the web. For more information, visit their site.
Martha’s high energy just goes on ... and on and on and on ... I guess she managed to complete this project somewhere between knitting an ergonomic, bio fuel-powered vehicle, milking her zebras and wallpapering her chicken coop. This is said with my tongue firmly implanted in my cheek, of course!
Martha and her team of experts have created a truly unique collection of invitations and e-cards featuring iconic images from their extensive libraries. The collection is full of fun and elegant designs, perfect for every occasion, from baby showers to back yard Bar-B-Ques and everything in between!
Martha is also now sharing her expert advice on Pingg! Her guide to party planning essentials can be found on our new ‘entertaining section’. Throughout the year, Martha and her editorial team will continue to add new ideas and tips, exclusively for us.
So, take a look at the new collection of invitations, peruse their new entertaining section, and take full advantage of all that Martha Stewart and Pingg has to offer!
