Novell Design Studio has released a brand new QR Code for the new mobile website dedicated to Studio Platinum bridal jewelry. Starting in September 2011, Studio Platinum will be available at select Novell retailers throughout the US. Look for the new Studio Platinum advertisement in Bridal Guide as well!
What is a QR Code? The Studio Platinum QR Code is a matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by QR scanners, mobile phones with a camera, and apps available to most smart phones. All you have to do is point a designated lens or area usually found on the underside of iPhones, Androids and many other popular smart phone models found on the market today. The Studio Platinum QR Code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background - it looks like a funky take-off of a UPC scan code. These modules allow the scanner to get more information about the product, go to a designated mobile web page, enter a contest or many other functions the featured brand chooses to highlight. QR codes can be scanned from a magazine, counter signage, posters, billboards and even online.See more uses for QR Codes at the QRAnywhere blog.

MJSA, a leading jewelry industry trade publication, featured news about Novell's Great American Metal Exchange (GAME) - a special metal trade program designed to put more affordable platinum merchandise into jewelry showcases. The concept behind GAME is simple; qualified retail jewelry stores can trade in unusable precious metals for Novell's new Studio Platinum bridal-classics collection. It's a weight exchange with a minimal program fee. Acceptable precious metals for this special opportunity are platinum, gold, and palladium. Is there a better way and time to profit from your under-performing, broken, and damaged merchandise? The GAME is a meticulously planned and executed bridal jewelry stimulus package. It meets the challenges of the hard economy head on!
The Great American Metal Exchange. Novell Design Studio in Rahway, New Jersey, is taking a unique approach to getting its line of entry platinum bridal jewelry into retail stores. Novell has developed what it calls the Great American Metal Exchange (GAME). It will offer its Studio Platinum Collection at a significant discount to qualifying retailers (they must be committed to the bridal business), and will take unwanted platinum, palladium, or gold inventory as total or partial payment. Novell's goal is to stimulate sales of platinum bridal jewelry.
"Right now, retailers are apathetic about platinum, and we're hoping to get them excited about the category again," says Novell CEO Bruce Pucciarello. "Given the close relationship between gold and platinum prices right now, we think the time is right."
Deadline for sending old inventory to Novell is July 1.
