New Vintage Items Added to the UPstudio Shop January 11, 2018 05:00

In March 2016 we launched the UPstudio Vintage Collection. The idea stemmed from how much interest we had in our vintage display items at shows and the vintage props we use in photos both on our website and social media. We decided as we came across amazing vintage pieces we'd curate a collection that compliments our UPstudio brand and make that collection available to you. 

We just refreshed our online store with a handful of new items. You can shop the collection here.

UPstudio Vintage Collection

All items are authentic vintage which means there might be some imperfections that add to their character. We have described each item as accurately as possible. All images are of the actual item you will receive. Quality is a high priority to us. That beings said, rest assured, we will not post anything that we wouldn't personally purchase ourselves. 

As always, if you have any additional questions as you are checking out a product, feel free to contact us.


New Products - 2016 Spring Release! April 07, 2016 08:00

While you were out on Spring Break we have been hard at work behind the scenes to release new products, and are thrilled to share them with you today.  Get ready, we've got some really exciting stuff!  The shop listings are filled with a lot of information, but we'll give you the highlights of new products below.  Everything you see on the website will be available at upcoming shows and pop up markets, including the Pink Social Girl Tribe Spring Pop Up in Charlotte on April 16 (we hope to see you there!)

Drumroll please...

Planners and Calendars

I know what you're thinking: old news, right?  We'll release 2017 editions later this year, but while we still have some 2016 styles in stock, our prices have dropped AGAIN!  Planners are now $15 and calendars are $5!

Vintage Products

This is not a surprise as we've been advertising them on social media and had a previous blog post about them, but we want to stress that we're getting new items into the shop frequently, so make sure to check back on the website for what is available!  We'll post on social media too, so follow us on Instagram (@upstudionc) and/or Facebook if you want updates.  We are absolutely swooning over this adorable umbrella.

 

Sticky Pads

Hopefully you saw the poll that we launched and voted for your preference of sticky or non sticky for notepads.  Sticky was the official winner, so these beauties can now easily stay wherever you want them - on the refrigerator, in your planner, taken to the grocery store, on your bathroom mirror, etc.  The dot pattern can be used as a grid for list making, bullet journal style listing, or an impromptu game of dots (anyone else remember doing this on long car rides?)  Side note: check out this life changing sticky pad tutorial from Elite Daily on how to remove a sheet without the sticky side curling up.  So helpful!

 

Chick Flick Catchphrase Pencil Set

We loooove this new set of pencils because these lines from movies really speak to us.  One, all these movies are classics that we've seen countless times, but even out of context, you know exactly what they're referencing.  We wrote down every quotable quote we could think of and picked our top favorites.  Girly themed movies won this time, and we think it's perfectly appropriate for our #girlboss business.  (We'd love to hear your favorite and if these resonate with you!) #illhavewhatsheshaving

 

Everyday Cards

The line of Everyday Cards has also been expanded to include 4 new designs.  Highlights of these new cards include small images on the opposite side of the card, as well as some more occasion-specific cards instead of generic designs.  Each one is still all-purpose and BONUS - now you can purchase cards individually!  (Side note: did you know that April is National Letter Writing Month?  Snag a few of these and send out some overdue notes to friends or family!)

 

Journals

Last but not least are journals.  Heavy linen paper covers in the Arrows design protect your choice of either blank pages or dot filled pages to jot down lists, sketches, bullet journal lists, meeting notes, or whatever your heart desires.  All internal pages are top quality for whatever use you choose.  The best part is that these are perfect bound and lay flat!

 

We hope you are as excited about these new products as we are!  Let us know your feedback - what are you most excited about?  What Everyday Card is your top pick?  Do you prefer dots or blank pages in your journal?  What's your favorite quote from a classic chick flick?  What product do you hope to see next?  (Don't worry - we're already working on new ideas to come out soon!)


Vintage Items Added to the Shop! March 03, 2016 08:00

First, announcements:

  • 300 INSTAGRAM FOLLOWERS! BAM! Big milestone for us. Thank you!
  • Terra of Earn Spend Live reviewed our planner on their blog. She totally gets us and what the UPstudio planner is all about. So if you're on the fence and want an unbiased opinion, check out her post. (Cause our blog is WAY biased, us being the designers, investors, criers, the whole shabang!)
  • Nominations have opened for the Indy Best of the Triangle 2016. If you're local to the Triangle, don't forget to nominate your favorites. (If we made the cut, we'd appreciate your nomination  in the following category: Shop: New Business in Wake County: UPstudio.)

Now, vintage, vintage, vintage... 

Have you fallen in love with one of our vintage accessories either at a show or in our product photos on the website? If so, you are in luck! We at UPstudio have curated a collection of unique vintage items that we think you will love.  We plan to add to the collection regularly as we come across great pieces. We will typically trend towards items that can be used at your desk (or decorate it). We launched the collection yesterday with three coil dog letter holders and three different brass letter openers. You can shop the collection here (they also show up at the bottom of our complete list of products in the shop).

We plan to add more products this weekend, so if coil dogs and mail openers aren't your thing, make sure to check back for the new additions! We will post pictures on our Instagram, Facebook, and twitter. (If you don't already follow us on social media, this is a great reason to start! #301)
