Rebranding In Process (!!!): Sam Cooper Studios


Long time, no see.

Check these new puppies (or should I say llamas, and giraffes, etc) out. is the ultimate for the very best business cards; they have SO many awesome options and even just launched new gold foil and spot gloss options. In. Love.

I usually go with the original business cards with matte finish and rounded corners. Any of my art/designer buddies…if you haven’t jumped on the Moo train yet….honestly, what’re you waiting for? I also use them for my Christmas cards, notecards, and even had them print our Save the Dates and wedding thank you postcards. Besides the gorgeous and affordable printing and amazing customer service, the best part is that their cards can have – get this – a different image on each and every item you order…if you get 100 business cards, they can all have a different image on the front. Killer for an illustrator like me.

With the new name comes a new branding….welcome, Sam Cooper Studios. I am still working on getting my new website up and running, but you can preview it here. PS: is it normal to still totally not be used to your new name, months later?! Still new, I guess….!

Oh yeah, about that….this happened in September…wedding weekend recaps to come, as well!

Beginning of a Whole New Era

Oh, hey there.

Been a while.

My plans to relaunch the blog in a new way stay intact…so much newness in my life, & I can’t wait to share new projects, wedding plans (if I ever get around to that…Bridezilla, I am not), and especially new adventures in our new city! We have officially moved to Jersey City, steps away from a quick PATH train into Manhattan. Life throws crazy things your way.

And sometimes, you just have to answer with a resounding “YES.”

The Faces Behind Your Fave Health Food Brands


I have quite a few photos to share with you….lots going on lately (I got a new job and will be a full-time PA girl beginning Wednesday, for starters!), and I will definitely be blogging more regularly again, and soon! Thanks for sticking around!

Wanted to share this slideshow that Shape magazine put together…always interesting learning about where these health food companies started, and putting faces to the names is pretty cool. Thought you may enjoy! (Justin Gold, from Justin’s Nut Butters, below.)
