MelissaFacciniCAG.WebChristian Art Gifts launched its first Spanish gifts this season and is planning a second product release this summer.

“We’ve seen that there’s a need for inspirational items that speak the heart language of people around the world, so we wanted to provide something that would inspire people and spread God’s Word wherever Spanish is being spoken,” said Melissa Faccini, who is coordinating the Spanish initiative and tradeshows.

The line includes a variety of economical products from pet-themed notepads, retailing for $1.49, to gift-boxed mugs, priced at $4.99, to imitation leather journals, for $9.99.

Aware of the concern that the Spanish wording be accurate to first-language speakers, Faccini offers reassurance to retailers considering bringing the product to their stores.

“Our team of translators and editors are from Columbia and Argentina, and we try to provide the best possible translation that can be understood by people all over the world,” she said.

Retailers can request a flyer detailing the company’s Spanish products, which will also be featured in the Christian Art Gifts booth, #922, at Expolit, the annual Spanish Christian products show held in Miami. This year the show runs May 2-5.

Stores can order by calling Christian Art Gifts at 800-521-7807. The minimum order is $50, and an order of $200 or more receives free shipping. Terms are offered if the store opens an account.
