Dammit, I love when cool artists come up with cool stuff for Valentine’s Day! Everything can translate to something awesome for a wedding…kinda like this print from Enormous Champion. Its a limited run of 150, so get one before they sell out.

I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out at Minhee’s studio, and its one of the most fun I’ve ever seen! Adorable products and treasures at every turn!
And be sure to check out the Deals + Events page…lots of good stuff coming up!
Name: Minhee Cho
Location: New York City
Company: Paper+Cup Design
What is your aesthetic?: Simple + Modern designs with a vintage twist
How does your studio style convey your professional aesthetic? We mixed vintage furniture with modern ones
Favorite part of your studio?: Our wall unit, we have a tiny space and it’s perfect to store all our paper work as well as have space for displaying our work.
Where do you go for inspiration?: Visiting flea markets, watching old movies and taking walks around the city with Tru
What tool do you use in your business that you can’t live without?: My computer and my craft tools like the xacto, ruler and cutting mat
Is there anything you’d upgrade to?: We have access to a small roof deck right outside one of our windows, I would love to fix it up so we can hang out or do some of our meetings out there.
Anything else we should know?: I’m a big pack rat and Tru is super organized, neat and tidy. I try to be that way but find it stifles my creativity! So he lives with all the scraps of paper and found objects all over the office that I consider my little treasures.
I thought Renegade this year was pretty damn cool! Got to see lots of new stuff, meet up with some old friends, and chill out in the park! Its always been my belief that these kind of events are great for getting inspiration and picking up some handmade gifts for yourself or your bridal party…last year I bought a ton of stuff for my ladies! This year, it was all about me and the new babies my friends are all having! Here are some of my favs from the fair…(my recap from the Brooklyn Wedding Popup Shop is coming up at 1pm so check back, and Save the Date week will kick off tomorrow!)
Not that this had anything to do with weddings, but I just LOVED this whale print from Enormous Champion…who knew I was a whale person??
It was so nice to see Anna Bond‘s invites in person finally! She also had some darling greeting cards
I’m so pissed that I didn’t buy one of Hayley Carmo‘s ribbons! I sort of have a thing for prize ribbons, and I’m totally obsessed with that purple one! I hope its still available…Hayley??
These lasercut coasters by Peppersprouts would make such fun gifts for the bridal party! They had awesome lasercut felt trivets as well!
I thought these posters from Seattle Show Posters were so cute for a newly married couple.
These handmade soaps from MeowMeowTweet are wrapped in the most adorable drawings…another great gift for your bridal party perhaps? I could see them as favors too!
Julie from Bow & Arrow! She just got engaged!
Last but not least, I thought these handpainted mugs from Berd & Bee were so neat…lots of different fonts to choose from. Try filling them up with candy for the kids table!
The Happy Envelope debuted some new thermography cards that had some great texture to them, but what REALLY caught my eye was that darling save the date!
Gotta love Linda + Harriett…her new calendars for 2010 are amazingly beautiful, dare I say even more beautiful than this years? She also showed some new cards that would make great gifts for bridesmaids!
The wooden squirrels from Enormous Champion are my pick for cutest wedding gift this year!
