Celebrating 10 years on Abbot Kinney Blvd was a true milestone for us. Over this last decade we have been so appreciative of the love & support of our customers, designers, friends and fans that have journeyed with us along the way. Without all of these very important people we couldn’t be where we are today, so we wanted to host our loveliest party yet …. as a ‘Thank you’ for the 10 years of small business support and also as a ‘Cheers’ to hopefully many more.  I couldn’t be more happy to share these beautiful photos with you from our party (shot by Marisa Vitale)

We were so grateful to have such a stellar lineup of sponsors on board. For starts, Gather Events (!!) Sarah and her team are organizational and creative wonders. On top of that, they are absolutely amazing to work with and really helped us pull out aaallll the stops on this one!

We had savory bites from the best in LA – Whoa Nelly Catering, and served them on our favorite paper plates by Harlow & Grey. For treats we served waffle cone ice cream sandwich treats by Tilamook  (appropriately called “Tilamookies”). For beverage the  The Whaling Club created & served up some tasty cocktails made with fresh ingredients. The signature drinks were titled ‘Sunshine state of mind’ and ‘Walking on Sunshine’ and were a combination of  the best pressed juices by Pressed Juicery, (… one mixed with  Skyy Vodka + and the other with Bulldog Gin).  SO freaking good and Soooo pretty too served in Borrowed Blu glassware!

Party features included: A paper flower making station where guests could craft themselves a wearable accessory while socializing.  We also had calligrapher Nicole Miyuki hand lettering guest’s names onto a little paper desk plaques stating ‘The Desk of ___”.  Finally, we gave out Urbanic Boxes of Sunshine to 100 lucky guests and even rang a little bell each time someone scored them – which was a big hit.

With all of the flower power happening, we of course had to flower-bomb my car! (which also was the vessel that contained all of the gift boxes).  Admittedly I had considered trying to keep the flowers on indefinitely.

There was an amazing turn out of people and we got to celebrate with friends old and new!

The above pic is of the URBANIC GIRLS!  Let it be known that without these fine ladies, Urbanic would not be what it is today. Each one of them is so creative, talented, patient, hardworking and absolutely lovely from the inside out.

As many of you know from previous blog posts that May is always our best mail month of the year!  We literally receive a huge bulk load of amazing mail containing sweet letters and booth invitations to the National Stationery Show in NYC.  When Joshua saw the situation on my desk last week he shot this little video above. – You must click play!

Urbanic Mail

I opened a bunch of the mail on Snapchat this year for everyone to see & also shot a few pics above of some of the beautiful hand lettering on the envelopes for you to see.  Stay tuned, next week I’ll be posting some photos from the show!

As many of you already know, it has become a tradition for us to send out a little New Year’s print each year to some of the designers and clients we work with at Urbanic. Our goal is to make it an inspiration board-worthy print with a positive outlook going into the new year.  (if you’re curious, you can click to see some of our cards from years’ past – 2012, 2013, 2014, & 2015 )

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset
This year we were inspired by and old fashioned ice cream parlor vibe. We letterpressed our design onto some creamy soft cotton paper & paired it up with a color seam envelope.  As always, we printed a small batch of extras just for you if you’d like one! These little prints are 5×7 and a limited edition, so they are on a first come first serve basis. We’re sending them out complimentary to our followers, just send $2.50 which are our costs on the print + the postage, we’ll put one in the mail your way!   *click here to snag yours*

please note the following…

* these are a limited edition so it’s first come first serve.  1 per customer please
* .50 is included in the price for US residents. If you are international and you would like us to send you one, please email us.
