In the spirit of the season, the PlaceFull team took a trip to visit one of our glassblowing merchants, Glassybaby, here in Seattle. We are proud to partner with an organization like Glassybaby, who through its Power of Giving initiative, donates 10% of all proceeds to those in need. As a result of our team building glassblowing event, we were able to make a substantial donation to Seattle Children’s Hospital.
Since we work with glass blowing studios daily to provide their online booking solution, it was fun to experience the craft firsthand and create our own masterpieces. The team event not only resulted in a donation to a great cause, but we are also planning to gift our creations to friends and family this holiday season. See below for a few fun pics of the event!
How you can Give Back this Holiday Season with Glassblowing
You can join Glassybaby’s Power of Giving initiative by hosting your own event or through any Glassybaby purchase. Their signature Glassbaby candle holders are not only beautiful, they are the perfect holiday present – a “one-of-a-kindness” gift that gives back. You can order them online through their website or at one of their stores in the San Francisco or Seattle area.
If you’re in the Portland area, check out Elements Glass, another PlaceFull online booking partner. This holiday season you can create a one-of-a-kind gift at their popular Blow your Own Christmas Ornament Class – the class has received over 180 online bookings in just a couple of weeks!
We hope you enjoy the experience as much as we did!
Now, on to the boring business stuff…
How PlaceFull and Glassblowing Studios Make the Perfect Match
With PlaceFull’s powerful online booking and resource management solution, glassblowing studios have been blown away (no pun intended) at the ease at which they are now able to integrate the schedules of equipment (like annealers, glory holes, furnaces, benches) and even their artists with one easy-to-use solution. Whether they are renting studio space to aspiring artists, hosting corporate parties, or teaching small glassblowing classes – PlaceFull allows any of those customer segments to easily book and pay online. See below for a few more online booking advantages.
- Allow customers to book and pay for events, parties, and more 24 hours a day.
- Free yourself from the paper shuffling and repetitive phone calls.
- Have customers agree to terms and conditions, sign waivers, and prepare before their experience.
- Let artists book their resource needs, with no worries about overlap
- Schedule follow up emails to cultivate repeat customers and long term relationships.
We know that every glassblowing experience is unique, there is only so much furnace space in a day, and every customer and artist that walks through your door has a different studio need. That’s why we created our integrated resource management system – the industry leading resource online booking solution built specifically for glassblowing studios.
