A Note from Catherine

I may not personally scream 'luxury' or 'chic' or even 'high-end', but I'm pretty positive I know how to create a product that is. I'm like the Grace Coddington of stationery, pulling together u-chic-ness out of what looks to be resourceful chaos. (If you don't know Grace Coddington, she was the Creative Director for American Vogue for 28 years and she's known for her big, fuzzy red hair and amazing photoshoots. If you DO know Grace Coddington, I'm being extremely generous with my comparison, I know it's a kind of blasphemy and I apologize.)

I shop at Buffalo Exchange, not Gucci. I get my hair cut at barber shops, not classy salons. I drive a beat-up Toyota 4Runner previously owned by my father-in-law, not a souped-up Range Rover. All this to say, you may think goofy Catherine Giudici doesn't match up perfectly to Founder and Chief Creative Officer to LoweCo. Luxury Paperie Catherine Lowe, but she does. (I do.)

I started LoweCo. because I not only love greeting cards, but I genuinely love design. And branding. And people. And love. <3 LoweCo. cards are designed with careful restraint and a cheeky play on words. 80% chic, 20% cheek. You may have a hard time seeing the product in photographs but I promise, once you get our pieces in your hands, you'll see, feel and feel the quality. LoweCo. is so my kind of minimalistic design style and I hope you can appreciate its simplicity.

I'll be taking your questions in the comments below about LoweCo. and really anything else you want to ask me. I'm a pretty open book (I'd like to think), so go for it :)

5 A Year In Cupcakes    Cupcake mania shows no signs of slowing down, so grab this comprehensive collection for the cupcake lover on your list.

6 Far North Spirits Solveig Gin    Every step of production for this rye-based gin takes place at the Minnesota-based distillery, from the growing of the rye to milling, mashing, and fermenting—and it makes a difference. It's one of the most flavorful we’ve ever tasted, full of grapefruit, thyme, juniper, and lavender notes. Shop here.

7 Somabar  Looking for an easy way to enjoy a bar-quality drink in your own home without bartending experience? A new appliance gives you exactly that, and it’s easier than making a cup of coffee. The Somabar, a “robotic bartender,” promises craft cocktails all at the press of a button. Shop here.

    10 Mean Girls Quotes We Think Were Meant For Us

    We're girls, so of course we love Mean Girls. (But not mean girls.) And in our sassiest post yet, peep the quotes from Mean Girls we are just positive were foreshadowing our existence.

     

    For maximum effect, quotes should be read in Damian's sassy voice.

    1. "You go, Glen Coco." Glen LoweCo.'s lesser known cousin Glen Coco is an underground stud muffin.

    2. "Boo, you whore." Our BOOHOO card is for when a b like Regina calls you a whore. Get her back by writing in the Burn Book about her mustache and fat thighs.

    3. "It's not my fault you're, like, in love with me or something!" Cady has a thing for LoweCo. and we inspired this quote because of her love for us. Dang, we should have trademarked it.

    4. "I can't help it that I'm so popular." Our YOUR TUSH IS THE ONLY ONE I WANNA SQUISH card is like, really popular. Girls wanna be it and guys wanna be with it.

    5. "You can't just ask someone why they're white." Our cards are white. Suuuper white. (And square, but that's a whole 'nother thing.)

    6. "So you agree. You think you're really pretty." Betches love to "compliment" each other. Our BLONDES/BRUNETTES cards "complement" each other. They're both really pretty though.

    7. "The limit does not exist." ...on how many LoweCo. cards and gifts you can have.

    8. "I'm a cool mom." Catherine Lowe is a self-proclaimed cool mom. She lets Samuel stay up all night!

    9. "We only carry sizes 1, 3 and 5. You could try Sears.You can't find our cards in Sears. (You DEFINITELY can't find our cards in Sears.) But we've got 3x3" and 5x5" cards and we're just as snooty and chic as 1.3.5.

    10. "It's October 3rd." We launched our newest product PRINTS on October 3rd and a very little known fact: Catherine believes Samuel was conceived October 3rd of last year. Sorry for putting you on blast, Sean Lowe. Actually, we don't care. Because Samuel.

     

    And there you have it, folks. You can't deny that LoweCo. and Mean Girls aren't a match made in heaven. Now buy our cards, whore. Wink!
