Where do the busiest and best parents go to get the skinny on what to do, see, eat, and buy? In 2011, 25 million readers weighed in on that question at the 2011 Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Awards, which showcases the “best in parenting brands, products, services and restaurants” of several major metropolitan areas. And for the 2012 Awards (over 6,000 businesses participated), PosePrints snatched the “Most Awesome Creative Card Suppliers” award away from such arch-competitors as Shutterfly, Minted and Tiny Prints, with a whopping 206,650 votes.
PosePrints started as the creative brainchild of Jen Moss (a self-taught artist) and her mother (a financier). Their mutual love of homemade crafts and aversion to pre-fab stationary developed into a line of distinctively whimsical and customizable stationary, magnets, business cards and notepads. What makes their line stand apart is the vibrancy of Moss’ art and the near-infinite variations on each theme you can customize to your likeness. Whether it’s a thank you note, birthday invitation, or a wedding program – the better-than-your-average-avatar caricatures you can create (custom: eyelashes, hair accessories, bling, and more), make the party happen before the party itself.
Magazines for savvy brides and parents can’t gush enough about PosePrints’ offerings. “My one stop-shop for all my stationary needs”, raves Manhattan Mom Blog. “Sure to make your guests accept with pleasure,” enthuses Bridal Guide Magazine . Though some of PosePrints’ competitors have been at the stationary game longer, PosePrints won the day because they’ve come up with a winning model: singularly custom invitations and gifts so charming they can (and do) double as gifts.
