Black Friday Giveaway Winner!

And We Have a Winner! Heather Priesser! Congratulations! Thank you all for your donations and purchases! We raised $168 for Wounded Warrior!

Designed by a mom of four

Mom knows best. One reason that our baby items are so popular is because they are so practicable. The diapers bags have pockets galore in the right place for a parent on the go, the Hero Baby makes not taking the whole diaper bag possible, and the burp cloths are oversized. We had one dad comment on how much he loved our burp cloth becuase unlike others they covered his whole shoulder and kept his clothes clean!

The latest item to get our mommy makeover is the changing pad. Our design worked, looked cool with the uniform fabric but was a pain in the rear to sew. To many layers plus it was bulky. So the drawing boards were hit and we now have a new design that make us very happy and will make you even more happy. The new design is only two layers, waterproof PUL and fleece. It’s thin and soft and practical. The other great feature is that it fold up and fits into the Hero Baby or any pocket of the Hero Diaper Bag. Don’t worry it is still over sized.

Take a look at the pictures below and see how thin it is and how nicely it folds up.

Who wants a Hero Bag for Christmas? {giveaway}

Christmas is the time for giving. Help us give back and get the chance to have your Custom Hero Bag made in time for Christmas! This Black Friday we are giving away a spot in December for one lucky person to have their Hero Bag made. So I know you are all asking, how do I enter? There are actually two ways: 1: For every item you purchase from R2R Designs on Black Friday you will receive one entry to the contest. For example: Buy one key chain get one entry; buy a key chain and a blanket get two entries. 2: Make a donation through our main page to the Wounded Warrior Project. For every dollar you donate you get one entry to the contest.  The more you donate the more entries you get! The winner will be drawn at random and announced on Sunday, NOV 25th 2011 on Facebook and on our Blog. The winner will also be notified via e-mail.

To add to all of your donations, we will be donating 10% from ALL sales on Black Friday to the Wounded Warrior Project!

Rules: By entering you are guaranteeing us that you will purchase your bag and mail us your uniforms by NOV 30th.

Disclaimer: This giveaway is to have a bag made in December NOT for a free bag. The winner is responsible for paying for their hero bag of choice. The winner can give their spot away to a friend. If the winner chooses to do so, the friend is then responsible  for purchasing their Hero Bag and sending us the uniform by the above dates. If the winner already is already in our queue for 2013 then they will be moved to Dec and we will accept one more order for 2013. Due to the nature of our custom designed products, none of the items purchased on Black Friday are guaranteed Christmas delivery except for ready made items. If you wish to purchase something with the intent of a giving it as a Christmas present, we can provide you with a gift card providing item details and stating that the item will be coming soon!

The Facebook Struggle

Facebook has been driving us crazy and we want to tell you why! For the past few years Facebook has been a great tool for us to connect and to really get know our customers. We posted all of our products and ideas and we would alway get so much love and feedback! We loved to be loved. Well Facebook went and changed how you, our fans, could see our page. Now they charge us inorder for out posts to be “promoted”. No small business can afford to pay $5 to $10 to promote each post. So we have 821 fans and only about 100-250 see each post me make. We have been asking our selfs how do we overcome this to still have a personal connection with our customers. We do have a solution. It is more work for us and will only take a few minutes of your time.

1. We are blogging more! I, Maggie, honestly hate blogging and Tiffanie doesn’t have time for it, but we are doing it. Why? Because we have control over the content and who sees it. So your part in this is to subscribe to our blog. Just submit your email address on left sidebar and then you will be notified of all our posts.

2. Newsletters! Thank you to the 97 fans who have signed up for our newsletter! We appreciate the love. So if you haven’t sign up, sign up. You can do so at We promise not to Spam you. Our goal is to send out a newsletter every few months and capture upcoming events and sales. Newsletter subscribers will always be the first to receive all news on Hero Bag sales.

3. How to beat Facebook. Head over to our page and like our photos and leave us some love. By interacting with our Page, out posts will appear more often in your news feed! The second thing to do on Facebook is to create an interest list. So click interest on the left side bar and then interest list, create new list, name your list and add us to it! Simple, huh? You can do this to all your favorite business.

Thank your for taking your time and reading this! We love our customers and just want to keep everyone informed of the happenings at R2R Designs. You can read more about this over at this blog.
