ShipStation’s Open House!

by
February 6, 2014

 

On Tuesday night, we hosted our very first open house for folks here in Austin. It was a night full of talking, laughter, partners, customers, family, friends, food, (Austin Beerworks!), and so much more!

First, we made sure that everyone would be well taken care of in the drink department (yay for some Austin Beerworks in the house!):

Then, we had to get some of our festivities ready, including this incredible photo booth from BASH Photo Booths.

And who can forget the magical empanadas from the folks over at mmmpanadas? Certainly not us.

The open house officially kicked off at 4p CT on the 4th, with some early comers like Silvia & Ivan from Sivani Designs, one of our customers.

More and more people piled into our new office, eager to learn more about each other and talk about their businesses.

It was a full house at our open house!

Meanwhile, though, our wonderful support gearheads were hard at work supporting our fantastic customers; some of them even took part a little. ;)

Much fun was had by all, from the two contests on who could build three Priority Mail boxes the fastest…

…to our Grand Prize winner of an iPad mini!

Congrats to Jud Harris for winning our door prize: an iPad mini!

Unfortunately, much like the stroke of midnight for Cinderella, 8p CT marked the end of our first Open House. We took lots of pictures, which we uploaded to a Facebook album that you can find here. Thanks to all who could attend, and we hope to see you back (+ some more of you) next time!
