How To Create A Union - Union Eight, That Is

You've already read about what Union Eight isn't, what Union Eight is, and a little about some of our members. Today it's my turn at the keyboard.
Let's get right to it and talk about how to create a union. Why? Because I am so busting my britches proud of Union Eight and everyone in it that I can't wait to let you know how I feel to be part of it. So here we go!

According to Webster's Dictionary, a union is several things.

1. "an act or instance of uniting or joining two or more things into one"

Take a lot of great products, eight of the hardest working designers I've ever met, an elephant's load of the coolest designs around, add the ease of internet shopping, and you have just formed Union Eight.

2. "a confederation of independent individuals for some common purpose"

At Union Eight we have taken the creative talents of eight successful designers, joined all their work under one brand, and set out to offer the online shopper an Uber experience in gift and apparel shopping.

3. "an organization on a college or university campus providing recreational, social, cultural, and sometimes dining facilities"

Wait a minute... what does this definition have to do with the forming of Union Eight? Well, it just so happens that it fits the members of Union Eight to a tee. In between working to fill our sites with hot new products for you, we share jokes, support each other during personal trials like family illnesses, discuss current cultural and social issues and how we can bring them to our customers on the products we design, and yes, we've even been known to share a recipe or dinner menu with each other. How about some pork butt BBQ or banana pudding, a hot from the oven Pillsbury sugar cookie or a recipe for some yummy buttercream icing?

Back to the dictionary one last time...

4. One example given by Webster's of the word union included the following use:
"a gracious union of excellence and strength"

For me, that sums up Union Eight in seven perfect words and that's why I'm so proud to be a member. We promise to provide excellence to our customers in all we do and stand committed in the strength of each other's hard work and support.

Thanks for stopping by... I hope you'll visit us again.
